  Swedish Currency:  Swedish Krona

Sweden is a country you will brag about visiting for years! With great food, a royal family, and beautiful scenery, there's no wonder it's such a memorable destination.

The history of Sweden is rich and interesting. Medieval life is evident from the narrow cobbled streets lined with perfectly preserved buildings. Sweden fought its last war after the invasion of Norway in 1813. Adopting an at-peace stance ever since, Sweden stayed neutral in the first and second World Wars, allowing the country to create a successful model for social democracy.

Their peaceful stance has paved the way for their progressive politics and lifestyle. With low inequality issues, a strong eco-friendly bent and an important coffee culture, Sweden is clearly the place to be.
