Sweden is one of the ‘three fingers’ of Scandinavia and is the size of the state of California. The landscape of Sweden includes forests, rivers, lakes, rolling hills, and mountains. The Northern most part of Sweden is in the arctic circle and has very short summers and long winters. The southern part of Sweden is temperate with temperatures varying from 64 degrees in the summer to 27 degrees in the winter. More than 80% of the population lives in the lower third of the country.

 

Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and is the location where most of the Nobel prizes are awarded.
