is a country rich in history and culture. Its mythology is fascinating,
its cities are picturesque and its many forests and parks are fantastic
and unspoiled. It is a pure, natural place you can go to
Stockholm, Swedens capital, and catch salmon in the middle
of the city!
Swedens greatest treasure for nature-lovers is its vast expanse
of beautiful land. More than half of Sweden is covered by forests,
and Swedens long shoreline is dotted with breathtaking archipelagos.
Fishing and hunting are both very popular sports, and both are part
of Swedish traditions. Swedish land operates under a rather unique
rule The Right Of Public Access which
allows anyone to use public land.
Since Sweden was isolated from other European countries, its culture
(and the culture of the countries around it) is much different from
other European countries. Swedish art is influenced by folk art
and handcrafts. Products such as furniture and woodcrafting show
the same sort of clean design. Other arts such as theater and ballet
are very popular in Sweden.
