Record Tourist Year in Sweden

Swedish tourism authorities say last year was another record year breaking the levels set in 2008 with an increase of overnight stays by 3.3%.

This is explained by tourist campaigns in the Nordic neighbors - and the falling value of the Swedish currency - making it cheaper to visit this country.

The biggest increases were seen at lower-budget overnights - by those staying in private apartments and cabins climbing by 4.4 % and 6% at the nation's camp sites.

This cheaper accommodation has meant a real decrease in spending by 5% but hopes are nevertheless high for this year – with an international travel bureau website rating Sweden among the world's top 10 tourist nations.
