There are 15 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Sweden. On our visit in 2014, we visited two of them: the Drottningholm Palace and the Skogskyrkogarden Cemetery. Both are on the outskirts of Stockholm.

The Struve Geodetic Arc is a multi country site, and commemorates the science behind the first accurate measurements of the size of the earth. The base point of the Struve Geodetic Arc is in Estonia. Click here to read more about it.

We are heading back to Sweden in March 2018 and plan on visiting a few more.
