There is a lot of choice on the Swedish smorgasbord – take your pick from fairy-tale castles like Drottingholm, the ABBA museum, thickly forested island landscapes, or simple sit back and relax and enjoy a fika (a moment of bread breaking/coffee sipping/merry making/cozy couching all rolled together that is uniquely Swedish).
There’s more to Swedish design than IKEA and H&M – Swedish fashion brands rule the roost in trendy Stockholm. Artistic blown glass is another Swedish stand-by. Gastronomy has its own motifs and an icy shot of Vodka is never far away. Culinary delights like the meatball in traditional kitchens make room for exquisite seafood at edgy, upmarket establishments.
From Ingmar Bergman to Pippi Longstocking and in recent times The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, the Swedish perspective has always been prominent in pop-culture through the ages. Peel back the many layers of Sweden with Exeter International and get closely acquainted with this fascinating country.
