Note: The Swedish Colonial Society here maintains a list of World Wide Web sites related to the history of the New Sweden Colony, colonial America and the modern day Scandinavian community. Reader’s comments and suggestions for inclusion are welcome and should be sent to:

Visit is Sweden’s official travel and tourist information web site. Search for holiday and hotel information, images of Sweden and its culture. Find city breaks in Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö, trips to Swedish Lapland and many other destinations in Sweden.
In a scarcely populated country there’s scenery and shoreline for all, satisfying scope to lose yourself in thought. Especially inspiring are the vast clear lakes, intricately splintered by islands, isthmuses and green spits.
