Sweden Landscape Scenes, Cityscapes, and Plants

July 2003

Sweden is a long and narrow country on the Scandinavian Peninsula on the west coast of the Baltic Sea, about the same size as California.   It is bounded on the west and north by Norway, Denmark to the south, and on the east by the Baltic Sea.   Sweden has a Boreal-Arctic climate, with the northernmost end of the country above the Arctic Circle, containing Lapland.   Stockholm, the capital, has a climate similar to that of Vancouver, British Columbia.   The southern end of Sweden, in the area of Lund and Helsingborg, has a fairly mild climate.

Dalarna is the traditional heart of the Kingdom of Sweden, at least culturally, and is the best place to visit to see, hear, and feel the traditional customs, music, dress, and art of Sweden, particularly if seen during Midsummerfest, centered around the Summer Solstice.

The photographs in the following pages were taken across Sweden during three different visits in 1992, 1996, and 2003.
