The Kingdom of Sweden
Sweden is located in a region called Scandinavia in Northern Europe. It shares a border with Finland to the east and Norway to the west and is connected to Denmark by a bridge-tunnel across the Øresund. The official name of Sweden is “The Kingdom of Sweden.” It is the 3rd largest European Union country in terms of land area.
The north of Sweden earned itself the name of “The Land of the Midnight Sun” due to the sun never setting in summer months from May until mid-July. Even in the southern parts of Sweden, summer nights can be as short as 4 hours. In the fall and spring, Sweden is famous for the appearance of the Northern Lights, causing streaks of color in the late night sky in the north of the country. All types of skiing and snow activities abound in this region.
