Nature Year 2009

One Hundred Years of National Parks

Nature lovers as they are, Swedes spend a great deal of time outdoors: Hiking in forests and mountains, sailing in the Stockholm archipelago in summer or skating and skiing in winter.

Inspired by nature conservation in the US, Sweden was the first country in Europe to open a national park, exactly 100 years ago. In honor of the centenary, 2009 has been proclaimed as Nature’s year.
