I've never been to Sweden and it's never occured to me to go to Sweden before but my nephew lives there and is getting married in July and I promised to go. I plan to fly into Stockholm and spend a couple days there and then take the train to Linköping for the wedding and spend a couple days there and see family. How many days do I need to properly see everything? I'm about to book off my vacation time and figure I need a day for travel there and a day coming back (coming from Canada). I know nothing about Sweden except they're supposed to have good meatballs and they gave the world Ikea. I will be staying at the Sheraton in Stockholm and I'm not sure where in Linköping but I was told I would have a room in the castle where my nephew is getting married. My husband and I aren't overly sentimental and are more the OK we've seen it move on type of tourists. Is not being able to speak Swedish going to be a problem? What travel guide books do you recommend?
What are things I absolutely must see? Foods I have to try? Things I should be aware of? How much money should I have with me? Thanks in advance.Edited: 13 October 2011, 21:45
