Wait your turn
Besides ticketing systems, there are plenty of other queues you will experience in Sweden – even while waiting for the bus! Learn to exercise your patience, and you’ll fit right in.
Cut the small talk
Don’t take it personally – Swedes are simply content to keep to themselves. If you’re coming from a more open, perhaps even “overly-friendly” country, you will probably experience a bit of culture shock with this one.
Partake in daily “fika”
If you’ve never heard of “fika,” it won’t take long to learn the term once you arrive in Sweden. Fika is essentially a dedicated time to enjoy coffee and sweets while socializing with friends, family, and coworkers. You can do it everywhere – at home, at work, or at a café.
Swedes may have fika daily, sometimes even twice a day. There are so many delicious Swedish desserts and pastries, and fika is the perfect opportunity to enjoy them.
Dress to impress
Achieving this sense of style may be a daunting task to some, but we’ll share with you an insider’s tip: black is always in fashion!
Moreover, Sweden prides itself on its right to public access, which means everywhere is essentially open to exploring. And with such a beautiful country, the opportunities are endless.
