I'm very surprised to see that so many people have been in/want to go to
Sweden.

The tourist agencies have done a good job.

So the question is why Sweden ?

It's mostly woods and lakes, Stockholm has an interesting old town though.

but this fades in comparison with Venice, Italy.

So if you come from Uruguay or Peru and pay +1000$ for the flight ticket you will get more impressions on the trip if you choose Italy. They had a well developed society when we lived in caves. That's a fact!

BUT....

Sweden is cheaper, safer, cleaner, not that crowded, people are friendly and speak english.

Also you can combine your trip to Sweden with a visit to Denmark, Finland or a Baltic country.

Let's say you take a direct flight from Peru/Uruguay to Amsterdam, then another 2h flight to Copenhagen, spend a day there.

Leave Copenhagen with the 4h 44 min. train to Stockholm.

See the old town, take a dirtcheap ( ca 40$) nightcruise to Helsinki/Tallinn/Riga.

That's my opinion but if I was a south american I would want to see France/Italy before entering Scandinavia.

It's like me choosing Asuncion, Paraguay as first choise on my maiden voyage to South America.

My grandmother is Swedish and I myself have a Swedish passport and nationality. Ive been to Sweden 4 times, since I have relatives there (most of my grandmothers brothers and sisters and their families live there and also my greatgrandparents are still alive...my mörmörsmör or however you write that) so I save in hotel. Of course when Ive been to Sweden, it hasnt been the only country Ive visited in the trip. One trip was Canary Islands and Sweden

dreaming of: USA, Canada, Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, Australia
3 years later...

..and I have only added the Czech republic to my "been to" list.

I think my travelling heydays are over by now. In 2014 I saw Germany & Poland again and this year it's probably only going to be another trip to Germany for the 15th time. I hope to see a new city though.

Hungary is the only country on my "want to visit" list now. I dont think I will ever visit the rest of the countries that I have mentioned.
