What country is Swedish in?
Sweden is located in the north of Europe. It has land borders with Norway to the west and with Finland to the north. To the east is the Baltic Sea. In the southwest, the Kattegat Sea area borders on Sweden. Sweden is separated from Denmark in the south-west only by the Sound of the Oresund. A bridge, the Öresund Bridge, connects the two countries.
Sweden measures 1572 kilometers at its longest extent. It takes a while to drive through the country from south to north! It is at most 499 kilometers wide. Sweden has more than 220,000 islands. The largest are Gotland and Öland in the Baltic Sea.
Sweden can be divided into three areas: southern, Central and northern Sweden. They also say Götland, Svealand and Norrland – you can find a map below in the slideshow. In addition, a total of six landscapes can be distinguished.
Sweden is a flat country in the south. The southernmost area is called Schonen, in Swedish Skåne. Schonen is a lowland (1). It is joined by a plateau, the Southern Swedish Highlands (2). It is located around 350 meters high. The area here is called Småland. The highest mountain here is the Tomtabacken with 377 meters.
A little further to the north is the Central Swedish Depression (3). Here it is flatter again and here are the largest lakes in the country, the Vänern and the Vättern.
