The largest of the Scandinavian countries, Sweden is the third-largest country by area in the European Union. With a very low population density, 97% of the land area of the country is uninhabited, making for vast beautiful stretches of wilderness and pristine nature. Despite this, Sweden is also a lively modern place, ranking among the world’s most innovative nations, the birthplace of world famous brands such as Volvo, Spotify and IKEA.
The Swedes are a very liberal and cosmopolitan people, and most do not tolerate discrimination of any form. They practice everything in moderation, and tend to shy away from extremes. They are very humble, and prefer to listen to others’ thoughts and opinions.
Swedish people generally speak English well, so it should not be too difficult to get around. However, cost of living in Sweden can be quite expensive compared to the Philippines.
