Northern Europe

Sweden facts and history in brief

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.

Hui Chin and I visited Sweden in 2003, when we took time out and visited a few countries in Europe including the Scandinavian countries with our Eurail Pass.

We didn't have too much time to spend in Falkenberg.

We had to wait for about 3 hours and change trains.

Nipped out to town, had a quick look, had some refreshments and away we went.
