Sweden has a population of over nine million people and is situated in the Nordic region of northern Europe. Considering its northern location, the weather here is fairly temperate. However, if you move to Sweden, you’ll find that the summer months are short and winter is long. It might take a while to get used to the lack of daylight in the winter, and vice versa in summer, but if you’re a fan of cold-weather sports such as skiing and ice-skating then this is the place for you. If you’re moving to Stockholm, Sweden’s capital city, you should be aware of the shortage of rental properties. Do plenty of research and planning before you arrive and be prepared to engage the services of a home-search consultant to find the most suitable accommodation. On the plus side, Stockholm is a very vibrant, green city, with low levels of pollution and offers the chance to live a very outdoors lifestyle.
