The Kingdom of Sweden (Konungariket Sverige in Swedish) is a Nordic country in Scandinavia, in Northern Europe.
It is bordered by Norway on the west and Finland in the northeast; the rest of it borders waters, as the Baltic Sea and Kattegat.
Due to the relatively small number of inhabitants, Sweden's landscape is known for its peace and the large forests and mountainous wilderness.

In 1978, Sarolta, my daughter and I travelledaround Sweden during our European tour.
With our Eurail Pass we went around Sweden visiting many cities of interest.
We had a wonderful time and a memorable experience.
Hui Chin and I toured Sweden in 2003, when we took time out and visited a few countries in Europe including the Scandinavian countries with our Eurail Pass.
