Sweden

Country Introduction:

Sweden, or Sverige in Swedish, is a Scandinavian country in northern Europe. It is surrounded by Norway to the left, Finland to the right, and above Denmark. Sweden has long winters with a little bit of daylight, and warm summers where the sun sets for only a few hours. ABBA, IKEA, Swedish meatballs, herring, Swedish House Mafia, and Vikings are just a few of the popular aspects and icons of Sweden.
