The Kingdom of Sweden is a Nordic country located in Northern Europe. From snow-capped peaks and green forests in the north to the golden beaches and rolling hills in the south, the country has a lot to offer. Not to mention the beautiful medieval cities, an array of castles, the Northern Lights, beautiful islands, incredible art, iconic designs, friendly people, high quality of life, and the purest air you will ever breathe. In addition, Sweden also boasts one of the best healthcare systems in the world. Having high-quality specialized treatment, state-of-the-art medical centers, and highly trained medical professionals, it is no wonder that Sweden is emerging as a medical tourism destination. International medical tourists come to the country to receive a wide range of treatments, particularly neurosurgery, orthopedics, ophthalmology, and oncology.
Although every part of Sweden is beautiful, Stockholm, the capital of the country, stands out from the rest. It is built upon numerous islands, located at the junction of the Baltic Sea and Lake Mälar. Boasting some fine museums, awe-inspiring architecture, stunning parks, fascinating culture, and vibrant nightlife, it is nearly impossible to get bored in Sweden. Here, tourists can walk around Gamla Stan(old town), tour the archipelago, go to the Swedish History Museum, visit the Vasa Museum, and explore Skansen(outdoor museum and zoo). Sweden’s second city, Gothenburg, is also one of the most charming destinations in the country and some of the most popular attractions in this city are the Botaniska Tradgarden, Skansen Kronan, the Haga, and Liseberg.
Stockholm Arlanda Airport is the main international airport in Sweden, where most international visitors arrive. It serves numerous international flights to major cities in Europe and Asia, including Paris, London, Doha, and Bangkok. Since Sweden has one of the most efficient transport networks in Europe, getting around the country is easy. Domestic flights are the fastest way to travel, but trains are also quick and easy. The train service covers almost every corner of the country. Long-distance buses may not be as readily available as trains, but they are a little less expensive. To travel inside major cities, tourists can opt for buses, metro, commuter rails, trams, and ferries. Taxis are available as well. They are relatively inexpensive and comfortable.
