The Buzz Of a Big City

By: Douglas Scott

From the mountain ranges, glaciers, forests and Northern Lights of the last wilderness in Europe in Swedish Lapland, to the uber cool capital city of Stockholm Sweden misses you.

Sweden just has more space to enjoy and relax in than most other countries. As well as the buzz of big city living in Stockholm, Goteborg and Malmo and their sights, sounds and world class shopping.

The cities of Stockholm, Goteborg and Malmo offer very different flavours of one nation. You have the cool of Stockholm, the maritime atmosphere of Goteborg, Swedens second largest city and the multi cultural aspect of Malmo.

With Sweden probably being the most child friendly country in the world, wherever you want to go the kids are welcome. And also being one of the worlds most modern countries, it has excellent communications giving you access to even the most remote parts of the country.

Sweden accommodation comes in all shapes and sizes. Chill on a bed of ice or get a birds eye view of life from a bed in a tree house. Ever wondered what its like to sleep behind bars. Do some of your vacation time in an authentic 19th century prison. Live like a king in an elegant countryside manor or in a monastery from 1420. The Swedish standard of life is high and we dont mind sharing our treasures. You'll find plenty of excellent hotels in all price categories or if you prefer to stay in a more modest guesthouse or camping site the range of choices will once again impress you.

And with just about every outdoor activity or nature experience in Sweden being eco friendly you leave the pristine wilderness here the way you found it alone.

Playing with tigers is safe as long as one of you is behind thick glass. Parken Zoo in Eskilstuna is one of Swedens excellent zoos.

Buzz over the ski resort at Swedish Lapland in the far north, take in Stockholm, the capital city, or why not glide down to Malmo and find our whats happening in the south of the country.

Scandinavians most handsome, sophisticated and liveliest city, and also, incidentally the cleanest city in Europe. Due to its unique location surrounded by water and countryside, with parks and gardens everywhere, it has super fresh air and a delightfully pure atmosphere.

Everything is in easy walking distance, everybody speaks perfect English, and the summers midnight sun makes Stockholm a great destination for short break.

Never cheap especially eating and drinking, it can be chilly even in summer time.

The traffic system is a nightmare if you travel by car signs are in Swedish, roads are a tangled web and parking restrictions sprout like mould.
