Introduction
There are plenty of museums to explore in Sweden, probably more than you’d even consider. Swedish brands like Volvo, Saab and Ikea all have their own museum; there’s a James Bond Museum and an ABBA Museum, and plenty of art and science museums. There’s also a number of parks and amusements for kids to enjoy, making Sweden a wonderful place for a family vacation. Stockholm is on a series of 14 islands connected by some 50 bridges and surrounded by thousands more islands. It’s a cosmopolitan city with a distinct Scandinavian feel combined with modern day architecture and plenty of parks and engaging museums. It’s a gateway for Baltic Cruises and a worthwhile to spend some extra time in.
Swedish Cuisine
Get into the groove and enjoy a fika, a coffee break with a nice pastry, particularly a kanelbulle, a type of cinnamon bun. Sweden has done well with branding dishes: certainly, there’s Swedish pancakes with lingonberries, and then there’s raggmunk, which is a Swedish potato pancake fried in butter and served with fried pork or lingonberries. Of course, there’s Swedish meatballs (also with lingonberries) and especially gravlax, dill-cured salmon with mustard sauce.

More about travel to Sweden
