Oh, Sweden. The land of ABBA, Ace of Base and the Cardigans. However, if all you think the country has to offer is disco music, you don’t know Sweden. With towering palaces, 17th-century shipwrecks, and winding hikes through colourful mountain passes, there’s more to do than meets the eye. Book your flight, Sweden hotel, and get to exploring.
Most people like seeing boats that sailed; Swedes love seeing boats that sank. This is the case with the Vasa Museum in the city of Stockholm. It’s the country’s most popular museum, with about a million sightseers each years. The jewel of the centre is the Vasa, a warship that sank to the bottom of the sea during its maiden voyage in 1628. For something with more staying power, visit Drottningholm Palace, which is located on the island of Lovo. The manicured gardens and bronze sculptures could fool you into thinking you’ve stepped into a history-steeped movie. Of course, if you’d rather get dirty, the country is well-known for its plethora of hikes, lakes and rolling hills ripe for exploration. Just book your Sweden accommodation close by for an easy hot shower when you’re done.
Most international travellers arrive through the Stockholm Arlanda and the Gotebord Landvetter airports. From there, Sweden has a robust railway lines throughout the country, with a number of bus routes through the southern part of the country. Renting a car is also an option, but most people opt for public transportation.
