Happy Swedish National day

Today is the Swedish National day, so Swedes everywhere are out drinking, eating, singing and dancing. The drinking is especially important since we can’t dance without it.

sweden_switzerlandThis is really important people, look at the map… quite a huge gap between Sweden and Switzerland so don’t ask me about chocolate or clocks ok! 🙂

 

 

 

Quick facts:

Sweden is the biggest country of Northern Europe and the fifth of whole Europe, but the population is just 9 million.

Sweden is sometimes called The land of the midnight sun or The land of the Vikings.

Last but not least, there are no polar bears walking the streets and Swedes normally do not have names such as Helga, Olga and Björn.
