"Sverige - beautiful all year round :-)))" Top 5 Page for this destination Sweden by Trekki

Sweden Travel Guide: 12,123 reviews and 30,563 photos

Oh well, beautiful Sweden :-) What can I write here which has not been described yet? It was a difficult task to decide if I want to make 20-30 single pages with only one or two tips or put everything into a country page. I have decided for the latter, because the people who come to Sweden most probably tour through the country and want to visit many places or stay in the big cities or in a little hut. The ones who stay in a hut know what they want and won't look for new ideas and sights to see. But the ones who come here first might like to have an overview. That's what I am trying to give here with my yet small Sweden page. At a point in time I will add more tips, but not now. For now I have several of the lesser known places here and some other recommendations.

Enjoy :-)

All pictures have been taken by me, if not marked otherwise.

The same applies for my writings here.

    Great tips about many lovely places to visit in Sweden, not all of them so often visited by foreign tourists. It has been an enjoyable morning read!

      Thank you dear Malena for your patience and reading through this page :-)) I had good advisers and a fantastic map! Without the map I would not have found these tiny little churches near the glass land!

    I really enjoyed the tour! Seeing that you like the strong wind then a trip to Iceland would be perfect for you, it is always windy here. I was amazed to read "Sigmundes skrifaši os" as "skrifaši" is "wrote" in Icelandic, exactly the same with "š".

    Magnificent pages, Ingrid! My husband's background is Swedish & he, too, enjoyed these pages. My favorites were Mariefred village, wood church, glassware descriptions, paper making, descriptions of seafood. What a joy to read.

    It?s really a perfect VT-job about Sweden with such interesting and detailed tips. You quite deserved to join Simone in 5-top list on this destination. I guess you?ll go on with this page and many other Sweden pages. I'll come back with pleasure!

    I just finished reading part of this page;I will come back! I can imagine this:"Are you coming for some some coffee and cream this afternoon, Mrs Cod? It looks like it's going to be windy."

    Fantastic overview of your Swedish expedition!! A collection of old churches is amazing, each of them is a little gem. Glass works are simply beautiful, well worth the trip!! And all those cakes, and cider and fish... Sounds like you were in paradise :))
