Life in Sweden
If you’re moving to Sweden, you might have a very good idea about what to expect. Or you might not have any idea at all. Either way, please take a minute to learn a bit about what Sweden is really like — which holidays are celebrated, how people spend their free time, what the weather might bring, how public transportation works and more.
It’s a land of endless countryside, stunning archipelagos and Nordic winters that transform into long, bright summer days. It’s a culture built on a balance of work and personal life, efficiency and equality. Its inhabitants are passionate about the nature, coffee, celebrating national holidays such as Midsummer, and being punctual.
Sweden is a modern country which is definitely part of the global community. Less than a century ago Sweden was a poor agrarian country and the journey to our current welfare state was rapid. Swedes are generally as fond of their traditions as they are of their modern lifestyle.
