Japanese tourists outside Stockholm's City Hall

Record visitor numbers for Sweden

More tourists came to Sweden last year than ever before, according to the latest figures.

The number of nights booked at hotels, hostels and camping sites rose by six per cent to forty-eight million.

And the figures show that the increase in foreign tourists coming to Sweden grew at more than twice the rate of the European average.

The Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth says to stay competitive, efforts in the industry need to be co-ordinated.
