Life in Sweden is known for being quite easygoing. In fact, one of the most admirable things about Swedes is their permissive and open outlook on life as a whole. Citizens are typically allowed to pursue their own interests so long as they don’t violate the rights and liberties of others. Sweden has a strong feeling of civic duty (just see how seldom people litter, for example), which contributes to the country’s well-rounded and stable society. The Social Democrats have ruled Sweden for the last forty years. During that time, they established many of the pillars of the Swedish welfare state, such as very generous pensions and health-care advantages.

The Best Swedish Attractions

Mariaberget, Stockholm, Sweden

A large portion of Sweden consists of woods and lakes. Most Swedes reside in the southern part of the nation, where most of the country’s smaller towns and cities can be found. With its tranquil beauty, Stockholm is the best city in the country. Sophisticatedly perched on fourteen islands where Lake Mälaren and the Baltic Sea meet, this city is a cultural powerhouse with world-class buildings, museums, and vibrant nightlife. The many islands that make up the Stockholm archipelago are the ideal alternative to city life. They provide many possibilities to swim, kayak, and visit quaint fishing communities. Gothenburg, Sweden’s second-largest city on the west coast, is also one of the country’s most popular tourist spots. Gothenburg residents are known to be among Sweden’s loveliest, and the city’s canals and wide streets are reminiscent of those in Amsterdam.

Gamla Stan, Stockholm, Sweden

Malmö, Sweden’s third largest city, bustles with young people enjoying the nightlife surrounding its historic heart. The closeness of Denmark and the rest of the European continent make the south the most cosmopolitan area of the nation.

Karlstad, the sunny capital of Värmland, a rough region perfect for river-rafting adventures, and Vadstena, an evocative old royal palace and monastery center, are set against the stunning background of southern Sweden’s two biggest lakes, Vänern and Vättern. Gotland, located to the east of the island, is often praised as a party paradise, notably in the walled Hanseatic city of Visby, which has remained primarily unchanged since medieval times.

Grinda, Sweden

The regions of central and northern Sweden are the most stereotypically associated with the Swedish identity. Dalarna, a region of gentle hills and quaint towns in the heart of the country, is where you’ll find Lake Siljan, one of the most picturesque bodies of water in all of Sweden. Some of the most beautiful landscapes in the nation may be found to the north, where you can also see grizzlies, wolves, and reindeer. Eastern Bothnian coast is home to the region’s largest cities, including Sundsvall, Ume, and Lule, all of which make for pleasant and vibrant stops along your way to the north.

Abisko National Park, Sweden
The Sámi, Sweden’s indigenous people, live in the Arctic’s extreme north, above the Arctic Circle. Also known as Swedish Lapland, this region is home to a wide variety of wildlife, including reindeer, elk, and bears, as well as quickly running rivers and dense coniferous forests that you may explore through a network of trails. Kiruna, the northernmost town in Sweden, is a great place to stay when visiting the adjacent national parks and the world-famous Icehotel in Jukkasjärvi. In the height of summer, the sun never sets in Swedish Lapland, while in the depths of winter, the reverse is true. Nevertheless, if you’re lucky, the sky will be illuminated by the colorful patterns of the northern lights or aurora borealis.
