Sweden is the largest of the Scandinavian countries in Northern Europe and bordered by Norway and Finland. The Gulf of Bothnia lies on the east and the Baltic Sea lies on the southeast and south. It is separated from Denmark by the Kattegat and the Oresund, which connect the Baltic and North seas.
Swedish history is worth reading about, beginning with the Vikings. An interesting natural feature is Kjolen, a mountain range, with Mount Kebnekaise being the highest peak. Tourism plays a major role in Sweden and the people are friendly and helpful.
