Sweden and Swedes

Updated on August 30, 2010

Sweden - Sverige

In northern Europe, in Scandinavia we find Sweden. In Swedish it is Sverige.

This Hub will tell you about Sweden, how it looks, what to expect and how to get here. I will guide you with tips and places that are uniqe and worth seeing. Of course my own opinion will show, but I know pretty well what you might like.

One really nice thing about Sweden is that you are allowed into the forrests and wild country to enjoy it withouth special permission. The law require that you are very careful in the nature and I advice that you read some information before you take off. I will post some of the do and don´ts here

      As an "american" I probably wouldn't sit next to anyone in the subway unless there were no other seats available either. On the other hand, I would hold the door for the next person unless I was unconscious of them being there... Looks like a beautiful country, I would love to visit sometime!
