Sweden is a nation rich with culture that dates back thousands of years. When taking a trip to the Scandinavian country, there are a number of ways to delve into Swedish history.
If you want to learn more about the ancient culture of Sweden, you should travel to Jokkmokk in early February. Since the early 1600s, the indigenous Sami people have gathered in this city annually to trade with the local people. During this time, you can also watch music performances and reindeer races. At the local Sami museum, you can learn more about the history of Sweden’s nomadic reindeer herders.
You can experience a different aspect of Swedish culture by visiting the city of Visby in Gotland. Located on the coast, this town has prospered since it was part of the Hanseatic League during the Middle Ages. Throughout your visit, you can see the famous Ringmuren Wall and the other medieval architectural features that have helped Visby become a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
