Sweden – the country where I live
If you were to go south from Trelleborg instead of going north in Sweden you would end in Italy as Sweden stretches in the south to north direction. Sweden is the third biggest country in the Europan Union and the fifth biggest in Europe if you count area but 21 inhabitants per square kilometre (54/sq mi). Southern Sweden with its cities has the most dense population. The pictures I am showing here starts in Trelleborg in the south travelling north to Luleå in the north. As I live in southern Sweden, the province of Scania, there are more pictures from the south than from the north. Click on the first picture in the gallery and make a journey through Sweden.
