Must See Museum in Northern Sweden for History Buffs

The Vasterbottens Museum in Umea Sweden is a must-see for history buffs. There are two parts: the Gammlia Open-Air Museum, which is open in the warmer months, and an indoor museum, which is open year round. Great for families!

Happy Swedish National Day!

Swedish National Day is observed on 6 June every year. The holiday honours the election of King Gustav Vasa to the thrown in 1523 and the adoption of a new constitution in 1806, both of which took place on 6 June. Before 1983, 6 June was known as Swedish Flag Day. It only became an official public holiday in 2005, replacing Whit Monday.
