IPTC INFO
CaptionThe midnight sun the snowbound winters meatballs herring Vikings and Volvos ABBA and the Hives - whatever your pre-existing notions about Sweden may be a visit to this multifaceted country is bound to both confirm and confound them. Though you’re unlikely to be greeted at the shore by throngs of mead-swilling berserkers in longships evidence of the Vikings and their pillaging days is easy to find. A stroll through the Swedish countryside will often lead to a picnic on some ancient king’s burial mound. Cycling routes frequently pass through fields crowned with ship-shaped stone graves. In cities and alongside roadways rune stones staunchly declare the historical equivalent of ‘Ingmar was here’. But Sweden’s days as a warlike nation are long gone. Instead its domestic and international policies serve as models of neutrality and consensus-building. This is after all the birthplace of the Nobel Peace Prize._____________________By rKistian Kristian Mollenborg AttributionNoncommercialShare Alike Some rights reserved http://www.flickr.com/photos/mollenborg/470029755/
HeadlineTravellers today are more likely to be slayed by visions of pastoral beauty - intense green countryside impenetrable forests little red cottages atop remote islands and everywhere Sweden’s famously clear blue water.
