Practical Tips:

CURRENCY: The currency in Sweden is the Swedish Krona (SEK). Credit cards are widely accepted so no need for cash. 

LANGUAGE: While most Swedes speak English fluently, it's always appreciated when visitors attempt to use a few Swedish phrases. "Hej" (hello) and "Tack" (thank you) will go a long way. 

WEATHER: Stockholm's weather can vary greatly depending on the season. Check the forecast and dress accordingly, especially in November when it is a bit colder. 

TIPPING: Tipping is not mandatory in Sweden, however, rounding up the bill or leaving a small tip is appreciated.
