Before going out in Sweden you must make sure you come prepared meaning bring some identification. Swedish bars and nightclubs are notorious for enforcing strict age limits on the door. While the majority of places have a minimum age limit of 18, some have been known to permit entry to nobody over 27!
Stockholm and Gothenburg is where its at as they are the country’s largest cities, particularly during the summer months. As the country gets bitterly cold winters, socialising isn’t that much fun in winter. But once summer time comes all the bars and restaurants get livelier and the nightlife becomes far more vibrant, spilling out on to the city’s footpaths.
When it comes to drinking beer the Swedes have one of Europe’s best selections in terms of the amount of alcohol they wish to drink – beer comes in three different strengths. The first is called lattol which has a very low amount of alcohol, secondly is flokol which has a medium amount and, if you plan on getting drunk, you need to get the starkol type into you.
