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
To the celebration of Christmas and the New Year, Swedes are also particularly suited. It is customary to celebrate the New Year at home, with the family. They watch TV, where enthusiastic verses are read - spiritual verses. At midnight, the house is literally poured with bells ringing from local churches, after which you can congratulate each other and neighbors on the holiday, wish all the best and exchange gifts. On Christmas, heads of families themselves dress up like Santa Claus and congratulate their family members on the holiday, and children are given a bag full of gifts. The main Christmas drink is mulled wine or glogg (a local variety of Grog).
