Sweden - moving around the country
Due to the fact that the territory of Sweden is quite broad, the country has well-developed air transportation. To date, the country has more than one hundred and fifty airports, both international and domestic, including charter and seasonal ones. The system of railway transportation in the country is also at a fairly high level. All trains are divided into the ones with wagons of the first-class or of the second-class, but both of them are in excellent working condition. The wagons are clean and cozy, and a fairly high-quality service is made available. Also, if the trip involves travelling at night, then passengers will be advised to purchase sleeping spaces in the respective wagons. There is also well-developed water transportation in the country, which is mostly represented by ferry boats cruising not only along the coastal territory of Sweden, but also between neighboring countries.
Overview of festivals and celebrations in Sweden
On the longest day of summer - the day of the summer solstice, another holiday is celebrated, connected with pagan rituals. Midsummer is widely celebrated by all locals and is particularly popular with young people. Summer in Sweden is quite short, and therefore Swedes are able to enjoy every warm day. On the longest summer day in the countryside, they kindle high bonfires, which help them drive away the evil spirits. In cities, bonfires are not made, but Swedes also gather together at one common table and sing folk songs. On this day, it is customary to guess. On the eve of this holiday, girls tear buds of seven different flowers and put them under their pillows, and they should dream of their betrothed. In the center of the holiday is the "May tree", decorated with branches, flowers and ribbons.
