There’s usually one primary reason why Sweden is on a lot of bucket lists: The Northern Lights. People come from all over the world to witness the breathtaking Aurora Borealis from the Nordic countries, and Sweden is often one of the first choices. If you’re going to see the Northern Lights in Sweden, you can go to the village of Abisko, which is home to the Aurora Sky Station. This observation center is located on a mountain and will give you the best views of the world-famous phenomenon.
One of the best reasons to go to Sweden is because it’s off the beaten track when you consider which countries are the most popular amongst tourists from western countries. Sweden is by no means an unpopular country, but it doesn’t receive the same crowds that major tourist hot spots across the continent do.
Fewer people, particularly in the off-season, means that you will have a better chance of seeing all the landmarks without having to deal with huge crowds. It also means that Sweden hasn’t been over-Westernised and remains very authentic.
The capital of Sweden with all of its canals and small islets and islands. Stockhom is a wonderful capital, not too big, not too small, just about right. The rich history and culture offer a fascinating visit as well as the surrounding nature and broad range of entertainment.
