We're grateful to Sweden for a lot of things, from ABBA to IKEA, but there's so much more to see in this beautiful Scandinavian country. It's no wonder it's an entry on some people's bucket list. Like many people, you probably fancy visiting Sweden to see the stunning Aurora Borealis - but how about adding more activities and sights to your itinerary? The country boasts exceptional museums, such as the Vasa Museum in Stockholm. Sweden also boasts stunning national parks. You can hike in these parks in both summer and winter. But if you plan to visit the country in winter, be sure to visit the world-famous ski resorts throughout Sweden. Swedes may seem very reserved at first, but as you get to know them you will find that they are very friendly in every way, always happy and willing to help you find an address, something to eat or what to visit. Swedes are very adept at social clubs, organizations and associations for culture. So you know, it's super easy to make friends in Sweden. The public transportation system is excellent, so you won't have to touch your car to move from city to city and get to the destination of your choice with ease. Visiting Sweden is an example of gastronomic sensations, from the excellent fish and seafood from the north to its famous meatballs. A whole host of exciting delicacies await your stomach in Europe's most attractive Nordic lands. Of course, getting a glimpse of Scandinavian culture comes at a price.
