When you think of Sweden, you think snow-capped peaks, Northern lights, and 24 hours of sunlight in the summer. With it being the largest of the Scandinavian countries, it actually has a lot more to offer than you may think.
The capital city Stockholm is spread over 14 island but getting around is easy due to the 57 bridges which keep everything well connected. With its own unique styling and nordic themes, it’s such a lovely city to wander around.
Of course, in the North, you have the spectacular Northern Lights display which can be seen during the winter months. The Abisko National Park is definitely worth a visit if you like nature and outdoor activities. One of the best places to see the Northern lights as well!
For those seeking more of a cultural experience, head to Visby which is a picturesque town on the Swedish island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea. Imagine idyllic cottages, a tangle of cobbled streets all decorated with flowers and the ruins of Gothic churches.
