Sweden is one of the world’s most innovative nations, and it has been called the most digitally connected economy. Swedes also hold nature in high esteem, which is one reason why environmental issues are so important here.

The capital of Sweden, Stockholm, is also the country’s largest city. There are 9.7 million people in Sweden, 85% of them live in cities. Sweden is a very multicultural country: 15% of Swedes were born in another country, while about one in five children in Sweden has a family with roots in another country. Sweden2

Sweden is a very secular country, but most of the world’s religions are represented here – and all are welcome. The national church, the Church of Sweden, is Lutheran, but Catholicism and other Christian denominations are also widespread. Islam is one of the largest religions in Sweden, and Judaism and Buddhism are also well-established.
