Things to do

Swedish traditions

Progressive and modern Sweden has a secret to share; we are nuts about our age-old traditions and celebrations. Country-closing Midsummer Eve, celebrating the longest day of the year, is the big one, followed by Christmas, Easter and a host of 'unholy' days, including cinnamon bun day, waffle day and practically a whole season dedicated to a gooey almond paste and cream bun.
