Five Reasons to Move to Sweden

Jul 05. 2018

With decades of experience in the industry, we have moved countless customers to and from Sweden.

In honour of the England football team reaching the quarter finals with Sweden, we have taken a look at some of the advantages of making the move to Sweden.

1. Battle of the Sexes
Sweden is well documented as being one of the most progressive countries when it comes to gender equality. Far more women are found on company boards and in senior positions in Sweden than elsewhere and maternity leave is considerably longer. More women are also found in key roles in government and parliament.

2. Public Services
Efficiency is the hallmark of the Swedish public services. Any government and tax matters are often observed to be dealt with more efficiently than in many countries. Public transport is often praised for its efficiency and reliability and equally, public spaces are well maintained.

3. Having Your Cake and Eating It
If seafood is your thing, you’ll find it in abundance in Sweden. There is a broad similarity to German cuisine, but the Swedes are also very dedicated to maintaining the ritual of ‘fika’; commonly known to include coffee and cakes/ pastries and features as a key part of daily life.

4. A Scenic Backdrop
Sweden is often rated with New Zealand as offering some of the world’s best scenery. The Swedish archipelago, for example, is well famed for its beauty. Just a 45 minute sailing time from Stockholm will take you to these stunning islands. For those loving the outdoors and outdoor pursuits, the Swedish scenery provides the ideal backdrop.

5. Fast Connections
Sweden is also not backwards in coming forwards when it comes to technology. Notably, the country has one of the fastest internet connections in the world. The internet is also remarkably affordable in Sweden.
