Important Things To Know
Swedes use the Swedish Krona as their currency.
The national language of Sweden is Swedish, categorized into six distinct dialect groups. Don’t let this intimidate you, though. English is widely spoken too. Almost 90% of the population is fluent in it.
There’s only one Swedish time zone, called Central European Time. Like most of North America and Europe, Sweden practices Daylight Savings Time.
Called Sommertid (Summer Time) in Sweden, it lasts from the last weekend of March to the last weekend of October. During this time, Sweden uses Central European Summer Time (CEST) which is UTC+2.
