Holidays in Sweden
Holidays in Sweden
Sweden is a land of striking cultural contrasts – this is the country that gave us not just ABBA but also The Hives, and this is the home of not only Viking warriors but also the Volvo. Sweden’s cities are stylish, modern and sophisticated, whilst the countryside caters for a mixture of adrenaline-seekers and those looking for tranquillity.
Although Swedes can sometimes appear to be quite reserved at first, once they get to know who they’re dealing with, they are as warm and friendly as any other nation.
Must see sights on holidays in Sweden
Sweden’s landscapes have a gentle charm for the most part. Much of the country is forested, and there are thousands of lakes, with large stretches of water between Gothenburg and the capital Stockholm.
As well as outstanding natural beauty, there is also plenty of history to take in. Gothenburg boasts the largest harbour in Scandinavia. Although the city has a cosmopolitan feel, with no shortage of trendy bars, cafés and clubs lining the streets, it hasn’t lost its distinctive local character – it’s Gothenburg’s authentic cultural identity that really makes it worth a visit.

The Baltic islands are also popular with visitors on holidays in Sweden. The largest island, Gotland, with its collection of ruined medieval churches as well as a hip party scene, is a particular highlight. Another major attraction is the so-called 'Kingdom of Crystal', a wooded area between Malmö and Stockholm where you can see glassblowers at work in Sweden’s world-famous group of glassworks.
