Prepare yourself for a breath of fresh air. A total change of scenery awaits you in Sweden.
Uncluttered settings, marshes, forests, snow-capped mountain ranges and large expanses of ice...this country is a fascinating discovery for all nature lovers. The peaceful typical villages with coloured wood cottages lining the rivers are the images that come to mind when we think of this country. From a human point of view, you appreciate the hospitality of the inhabitants. A sense of moderation, compromise, negotiation, self-questioning, a mild temperament...these are the words which have built this country.
If rural Sweden offers infinite simple pleasures to those in search of peace and quiet, then urban Sweden is elegant, modern and sophisticated. Stretched out over fourteen islands, the capital Stockholm proudly faces the Baltic Sea and the magnificent marine landscapes of its archipelago. In summer, when the sun sets on the other European cities, Stockholm still bathes in the intense light of the Nordic sun.
Greta Garbo and Björn Borg, illustrious children of the country, showed the two sides of this Nordic country: mystery and panache, as much on the red carpet as on the tennis court. Sweden is also the third biggest exporter of music worldwide, constantly putting innovative products on the market. Just like the group ABBA who have been surfing on the wave of success for a few decades already, the Swedish producers capture the spirit of the times better than others. And, cause or effect – it is in Sweden that the number of amateur choirs per inhabitant is highest in the world. Get on the dance floor!
