Good to know

Money:
SEK, Swedish Kronor, is used. In  some of the touristy districts the occasional shop might accept Euro but at a crappy rate.
ATMs are available everywhere, naturally more frequently in bigger cities.
Banking: Open until 3 in most cases
Exchange offices: Forex and Exchange are the bigger ones and they handle most currencies. If you have a very odd one like Vietnamese Don for example, best try to change money at the bigger airports when you arrive.

Transportation
Taxis: Available everywhere in the bigger cities. All should run by meter! Most companies have fixed prices from the airport to town written on the outside of the cars.
Public transportation: Cheap, reliable and fast, use it as much as you can!

Alcohol
Monopoly on selling alcohol means that you have to queue up at Systembolaget if you plan to buy a bottle of wine for dinner. Open until 6 Monday-Friday and some places are open on Saturdays until 3.

Smoking
Is prohibited in restaurants, bars and any other public building. Cigarettes are expensive and should be bought outside of Sweden if you smoke. Almost no one will let you smoke inside in private apartments either.

Food specialties
There are different specialties from different regions and also naturally depending on the season, but we have chosen a few things that stand out:

 


Meatballs with mashed potatoes

Swedish meat balls (Köttbullar med potatismos och lingon)
Served with mashed potatoes, cream sauce and lingon berries. This is as Swedish as it gets!

Pea soup (Ärtsoppa)
Served on Thursdays (after army tradition) with crisp bread, punch and mustard. Dessert is always Swedish pancakes with whipped cream and strawberry jam.
 

Pickled herring

Pickled herring (Sill)
Comes in many form and flavors ranging from mustard to garlic but the most traditional one is Matjesill and this should be served with boiled potatoes, sour cream and chives. Equally important is the crisp bread with cheese and a schnapps, preferably a flavored one.


Apart from the above, if you happen to get here at the right season, try these:

Spring


Semla

Semla- A traditional sweet bun, served at a special day in February or march


Waffle with cloud berry jam and whipped cream

Våffla- Waffles, also has a special day in February served with cloudberry jam and whipped cream

Summer
