Discover Sweden

Sweden has a love for outdoor activities, such as skiing, hiking and sailing among other things, while also being one of the most modern and progressive centers of technology, design and equality. We have an incredible and vibrant game-developer scene, which is considered one of the leading in the world. We enjoy a mix of both nature and city life, with a wealth of activities anywhere we go.


Sweden is close to all other European countries and with ample vacation time and several holidays a year, it’s easy to travel and experience different cultures and environments around the continent, sometimes just for a weekend getaway! Sweden is a part of the EU, which makes traveling to other countries in the EU quite simple.

Life in Sweden

Living at its best

Sweden is known for its excellent benefits, especially when it comes to work life. Vacation time is 5 weeks, which gives you plenty of time to relax, explore our beautiful cities and nature or even to sightsee around the rest of Europe.

In the summers, we have almost constant daylight in the mid- to northern part of the country, and a wonderful coastline of beaches, clean water and small islands perfect for a summer afternoon picnic.

During the winter, we enjoy a cozy time drinking coffee and eating tasty pastries while the snow falls outside. And for ski enthusiasts, there are many places all around the country for both cross-country and downhill skiing.

Our larger cities, Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö have excellent public transportation. Sweden works hard to be environmentally friendly by reducing emissions and finding green solutions for public transport. This contributes to Sweden’s clean air and water. Many Swedes walk or ride a bike to work especially when the weather is nice.


The cities of Sweden have everything from top-quality restaurants, an active nightlife, museums, galleries and a wealth of events. There’s always something happening. And with our dedication to a clean environment and our strong love of nature, it’s always easy to relax in a beautiful city park or explore the vast forests that surround most of the countryside.


The food scene in Sweden is currently one of the most diverse and creative in the world, with a myriad of culinary excellence from around the globe. We are very receptive to foreign influences, making our larger cities some of the top destinations for dynamic food experiences.


Sweden is a land of innovation and opportunity. Currently one of the most flourishing tech hubs in the world, the country has an incredible energy and an influx of multicultural talent advancing economic growth in this exciting region.


A way of life that gives a sense of well-being. Emphasis is placed on equality, education, a healthy environment and supportive community. Opportunity is open to everyone.
