From the Baltic Sea to snowy Lapland, Sweden is the wholesome heart of Scandinavia with its pretty coastal cities, endless Summer days, and legendary viking lore. Stylish Stockholm is jam-packed with museums and edgy culture, where one of its 15 free-admission museums offer visitors an opportunity to ogle at old viking artifacts and some of the world’s finest modern art. Uppsala’s vibrant student life awakens at nightfall with a youthful buzz dominating the plethora of boho-vibe cafes, while beautifully preserved townscapes and buildings can be found on the famed Gotland island. A trip to Gothenburg also boasts picturesque wooden houses, stunning green spaces, and delicious Swedish cuisine.
