Sweden is one of the largest countries in Europe, with great diversity in its nature and climate. Sweden is a sparsely populated and characterized by its long coastline, extensive forests and numerous lakes.

The contrasts between long summer nights and equally long winter nights are big. Thanks to the Gulf Stream, a warm ocean current, Sweden enjoys a favourable climate. The capital of Stockholm is beautifully situated by the Baltic Sea, built on 14 islands around one of Europe’s largest and best-preserved mediaeval city. Stockholm offers a broad variaty of activities and more than 850 000 people of different origins live there.
