Sweden Travel Guide
Sweden is a beautiful country built on thousands of islands. Each is covered in green forests and snowy mountains. The natural beauty of Sweden is incomparable, but the cities have a lot of fun and food to offer. Stockholm is the most popular destination in the country, but Gothenburg is another trendy city to visit.
Aside from its hip and modern cities, Sweden also has some interesting cultural traditions, such as Midsummer. But I recommend you don’t watch the horror movie Midsommar before celebrating. You might get the wrong idea. The truth is Sweden throws some great parties.
Language: The official languages are Swedish, Finnish, Yiddish, and Romani.
Currency: The official currency is the Swedish Krona (SEK). 1 USD is equal to about 9.9 SEK.
Plugs: The plugs are type C and F, the standard voltage is 230 V, and the standard frequency is 50 Hz. I recommend using a universal adapter or a converter for hairdryers and other hot products.
Safety: Sweden is one of the safest countries in the world.
The Best Time to visit
If you want to see an icy wonderland, winter is the time for you. But I would definitely recommend the summer months instead (June to August). The weather is a lot warmer, and the sun shines for a longer time. When I went to Sweden, it was December. By 3 PM, the sun had already set. It makes photography more challenging, and you can’t hike the country’s many amazing trails through so much snow and darkness.
