Things to know before heading to Sweden

I know this post might not be applicable for most of you, but I can assure you it will be nothing short of interesting stuff to know. Sweden is a very beautiful place, and hence a dream destination for many people. 

Before heading to any new place, one should research about the place entirely and plan the trip accordingly. Here, today er are going to share with you some important information that one should be aware of, before heading to Sweden.

  1. You won’t be able to pronounce the names of places, but that’s okay.
  2. Sweden’s coast is dotted with thousands of islands that can either be reached by car or ferry. For many travelers, hopping through the islands is a great way to enjoy not only the amazing scenery but also to experience the quaint peace of the local hamlets.
  3. If you’re looking to buy alcohol (above about 3%) outside of a restaurant or bar, you’ll have to find the nearest Systembolaget — a government owned and run retail chain that is the only legal option for buying take-home booze in Sweden. This system of alcohol sale was enacted in 1905 during the prohibition movement to reduce both price gouging and over consumption.
  4. Sweden’s floating saunas are steam rooms built on pontoon-like barges, allowing you to spend a relaxing day on the lake, ocean, or river in style. These steam rooms have become incredibly popular in Sweden and bring an all-new level to your island-hopping vacation.
