Sweden in brief:


The country is the third-largest in Western Europe. More than half of the land is covered with forests. Sweden presents visitors with an embarrassment of riches, everything from sophisticated cities to medieval towns. Swedish is a fascinating and expressive language. It's a lovely place to visit, even if you don't speak Swedish (most Swedes are fluent in English). Come to see the beautiful cities, nature, water, the midnight sun (in the northern parts), and, of course, the smiling, friendly people.
