The Kingdom of Sweden is a Nordic country on the Scandinavian Peninsula in Northern Europe. Sweden borders with Norway and Finland, and is connected to Denmark by a bridge-tunnel across the Öresund. The land of the midnight sun is home to abundant forests and lakes, bustling cities where cutting edge design mixes with rich cultural heritage. The capital city Stockholm is considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world, due largely to the archipelago system it is built around. Captivating landscapes abound in Sweden from scenic coastlines, idyllic islands, arctic wilderness areas, vast lakes and starkly beautiful forests that cover over half the country. Because of its proximity to the Gulf of Bothnia and the Baltic Sea, boat trips to the islands and cruises along the historic Göta Canal are the most popular attractions of the country.
