Top 10 attractions to see Sweden with Irro Charter
Swedish history started with Germanic clans inhabiting Sweden territory since prehistoric times, known as the Geats
(Swedish Götar) and Swedes (Svear). A sovereign Swedish country developed during the 12th century. During the 14th
century Sweden was very weak, which prompted the Hanseatic League to influence or almost take over Scandinavia's values,
assets and languages. This influence led to the forming of the Scandinavian Kalmar Union in 1397, which Sweden departed
in 1523. From the 16th century to the 18th century Sweden became a powerful empire by military force, with territory
All Swedish terrains located outside the Scandinavian Peninsula were lost by early 19th century. The last military
conflict for Sweden was in 1814 with Norway. In 2014, Sweden celebrated 200 years of peace. Sweden was formally neutral
through both world wars and the Cold War; however Sweden since 2009 officially cooperates with the NATO alliance.
Sweden is blessed with abundance of natural resources. To really appreciate this country’s appeal, you must take time to
explore outside the cities. You can discover an archipelago, and hike along a narrow trail lined by snowcapped
mountains, and that is where you find so much beautiful natural space to indulge in.
