Sweden is a small Nordic nation that, in the space of a century, has transformed itself from a poor, underdeveloped agrarian country into one of the world’s most modern and sophisticated welfare states and industrial nations: truly a feat worthy of taking pride in. Indeed, they are proficient, hard working, conscientious and well-groomed - and to an outsider, the Swedes at first glance may appear to be a somewhat shy, withdrawn, anonymous people. But don’t let yourself be fooled by this surface. Beneath it lurks madness, sensuality, sentimentality and a well-disguised national pride and self-confidence. This color illustrated booklet gives you insight into the Swedish culture.
