Guide to Sweden

The parliamentary monarchy of Sweden comprises more than 220,000 islands and is located in Northern Europe. The largest and best known islands are Gotland and Öland, both in the Baltic Sea. Sweden is rich in lakes, rivers and waterfalls. In many places, extensive coniferous forests dominate the landscape. No other country in Europe has as many moose.

Those who want to cross the capital Stockholm have to cross more than 50 bridges, as the metropolis is spread over 14 small islands. The oldtown Gamla Stan with its medieval street network, the Royal Castle, the nature park on the peninsula Djurgården: Stockholm offers a wealth of destinations worth seeing.
