Things to do


Fika is not just the Swedish word for a coffee break. It is much, much more.
What is Fika?

The fika is a serious business and twice a day companies in Sweden break for one.  The Capital of Fika can be found in West Sweden's Alingsås where they actually have a 'fika tour' of the cafés in the town. So what is it? Quite simply it is a hundred year-old tradition and national institution that most Swedes obey - preferably twice a day. Find out more about fika 

A cinnamon bun is sure to make anyone happy.
