Home to a vast array of landscapes - from the dense pine forests and craggy mountains of the North, to the rolling hills and golden beaches of the south, and the stylish, sophisticated cities like Gothenburg and the capital, Stockholm. Sweden offers something for everyone.
Stockholm is one of Europe’s most beautiful cities, with buildings painted in an array of different pastel colours that draw you in to Gamla Stan, the old town where you will find the Royal Palace situated on the water’s edge, from where you can take boat tours of the archipelago that provide you with a different view on the city. A visit to Skansen the world’s first open air museum that contains around 160 buildings that have been brought from around Sweden and re-built creating a working Sweden of the 1900’s, is a must when exploring this city.
Sweden’s second city Gothenburg is equally vibrant and steeped in maritime history. A trip to the City Museum which is home to Sweden’s only Viking ship is a must. Gothenburg’s Museum of Art is the world’s leading museum on Nordic art and features works by Carl Larsson, Anders Zorn, P S Kröyer and Edvard Munch. Gothenburg is also home to Sweden’s largest botanical garden, located just on the edge of the town, it is easily accessible by tram.
