The Swedish language is a Scandinavian language, of Germanic origin, just as it’s close relatives: the Danish, Norwegian and Icelandic. Sweden is a parliamentary monarchy, and is said to be one of the countries with the highest standard of living in the world, based on the idea of the Nordic welfare state. Reputed as a liberal and modern country, Sweden was a pioneer in several social advances of the twentieth century, while standing out in the development of energy efficiency, nature conservancy and environmental protection.
The Swedes are said to be generous and open to other cultures. In fact Sweden is the Nordic country with the highest levels of immigration. The nature is very important for the Swedish people, and that is definitely one of the reasons for which this Nordic country is worth visiting; if only to see it’s beautiful capital Stockholm which, as built between the Baltic Sea and the lake Mälaren, looks like a city that floats on water.
