Seventh... A little introduction of Sweden
Let's listen to the beautiful Swedish national anthem.
The Capital of Sweden is Stockholm. A person from Sweden is called Swedish.
The Kingdom of Sweden (Swedish: Konungariket Sverige) is a Nordic country in Scandinavia, in Northern Europe. It is bordered by Norway on the west, Finland on the northeast, the Skagerrak Strait and the Kattegat Strait on the southwest, and the Baltic Sea and the Gulf of Bothnia on the east. Sweden has a low population density in all but its metropolitan areas, with most of the inland consisting of forests and mountainous wilderness.
The official list of Swedish monarchs starts about 1000 years ago, about as long as Sweden has been a Christian kingdom, but there are lists based on Norse sagas, Beowulf and medieval chronicles that go back twice as far. After the Viking high culture had passed, Sweden spent a couple of centuries fighting with its neighbouring countries Denmark (from the 12th century – 1710), and Norway (in the 16th and 17th century). In the 17th and 18th centuries Sweden extended its territory though warfare and became a Great Power, twice its current size - which extended territory it subsequently lost within a century. Since 1814, Sweden has been at peace, adopting a policy of keeping free of alliances.
Sweden was one of the poorest countries in Europe in the 19th century, and shaped by a dogmatic Protestantism, until its natural assets – timber, iron ore, grains – allowed it to fund a Swedish welfare state in the early 20th century. The country is today defined by liberal tendencies and a strong national quest for equality, and usually ranks among the top nations in the UN Human Development Index.
