Everyone knows about the big cities, but smaller towns are an equally important part of the Swedish experience. With a new year upon us, The Local rounds up 10 of the most romantic Swedish towns to visit in 2018. Time to start planning.
Recently voted Södermanland county’s most beautiful place, Trosa is only an hour’s drive from Stockholm but it’s a different world compared to the big city. Flanked by the sea, islands and forest, this spot is a popular summer destination and a favourite among tourists in the region, and looking at the storybook buildings as well as the scenery it’s easy to understand why.
Another town by the water, this time on Sweden’s second biggest lake Vättern, Vadstena is an ancient place known for having a remarkably well preserved castle from the time of Gustav Vasa.
