What Sweden offers
Swedes like to spend time in nature and “Allemansratten” makes it possible. Allemansratten is the right of public access which allows anyone to roam around freely in nature, to camp overnight and to pick berries, mushrooms and flowers.
Sweden’s 29 national parks and nearly 4,000 nature reserves offer opportunities to ski, hike, fish, swim and mountain bike. There are also countless opportunities to get involved in Sweden’s cultural life through concerts, plays and exhibitions held year-round.
Swedish is the official language of Sweden, however, a vast majority of Swedes also speak English. Sweden has a strong economy and many Swedish multinational organizations speak English as their corporate language.
