Sweden is located in northern Europe and is bordering by Norway in the west, Finland in the east and Denmark in the south west. These four countries are also known as Scandinavian countries or Nordic countries. Sweden is a member of European Union (EU). Stockholm is the largest city in Sweden. It is also the capital of Sweden with a population of approximately one million inhabitants. The total population of Sweden is approximately nine million inhabitants. Other large cities in Sweden include Gothenburg, Malmo and Uppsala. The total area of Sweden is approximately 450,000 square kilometres. It is in fact the fourth largest country in Europe.
The following are two of our favourite tourist attractions in Sweden:-
Cruise around the main island of Trossö by M/s Spättan is a very popular boat cruise provided by Affärsverken in the archipelago of Karkskrona, only approximately 80 kilometer south of Kalmar in southeastern Sweden. M/s Spättan can accommodate up to 50 paying passengers with a Swedish and English speaking tourist guide explaning the various interesting attractions around the island and the archipelago.
The boat is approximately 14 meter long and four meter wide and cruising at the speed of around eight knots. The fare for this cruise is SEK 75.00 per adult and SEK 35.00 for children and takes approximately one hour to complete the journey. Own food and drinks are allowed to be consumed on the boat. We certainly had a wonderful time in Karlskrona.

Uppsala Castle (Uppsala Slott) is located at the summit of Slottsbacken just 150 meters from Fyris River in the heart of the city of Uppsala. It was built during the reign of King Gustav Vasa in the 16th century to defend the city from enemy attack. Today it is the residence of the County Governor of Uppsala County. It is also home to Uppsala Museum of Art and the Hall of State. An interesting tourist attraction at the castle is the old Vasaborgen located beneath the castle towards the Botanical Garden.
Uppsalaslott is one of the landmarks of Uppsala and a popular tourist attraction. It dominates the landscape of Uppsala City together with the Uppsala Cathedral. The castle was almost entirely damaged by the big fire of 1702. It took many years to rebuild the castle. Nevertheless the restored facade was different from that of the original. The castle's present facade has two round spires on both sides of the main building. Gunilla Bell is located outside the castle together with several cannons as depicted on our photo to the right. It overlooks Uppsala Cathedral. Gunilla Bell was donated by the wife of King Johan III and is still in usable condition.
