Sweden — Sweden, home to some 9 million inhabitants, is the third largest country in Western Europe after Spain and France and is the largest of the Nordic countries. From its location in between Norway and Finland, the region has made a name for itself with its revolutionary designs, contributing IKEA, Ericsson, Volvo, and Saab to the global landscape – to say nothing of blond/blue-eyed beauties, ABBA, and fermented herring.

Why Go
