"Falun red" - that is the name of the red colour with which many Swedish cottages and houses are painted. But why is it actually like that? The colour is created by copper admixtures. This makes it particularly weather-resistant.

Of course, Sweden is not only worth a visit for its red houses. Over 50 per cent of the country consists of forests. There are a total of 28 national parks and about 80 per cent of the population speaks English as well as Swedish.

Thus, the untouched wilderness and the cosmopolitan mentality of the Swedes make the third largest country in the EU a particularly worthwhile destination.
