The Best Sweden Quotes & Sweden Instagram Captions


Sweden quotes


Here are my favorite quotes about Sweden, including inspiration from poems, literature, pop culture, and quotes by famous Swedish authors!


It’s just as hard to go back to a place you once left, as it is to leave it again. –Charlotte Eriksson


When I went to Sweden, I sort of found out who I was. -Christen Press


I am connected with the people who go abroad, to Sweden, there where people have an attitude. –Petra Hermans


Swedes don’t like to ask favors of each other: they keep their problems to themselves and suffer in silence. Being duktig is one facet of this: if you are duktig then you don’t need any help, and as duktighet is the ultimate ideal for Swedes; to ask for help – or even to give it – is a kind of low-level social taboo. –Michael Booth

Sweden quotes


I think, a lot of my career and my life before I went to Sweden, I felt like I was trying to be someone else. -Christen Press

In Sweden, stardom is looked upon as phony. You walk to the theater every day like everybody else. -Lena Olin

Swedes love queuing…..they even flirt in queues! –Abhinay Sarkate

No disrespect to Sweden: I didn’t think of them as the comedy universe. -Billy Crystal

I’m the minority in my house sometimes. My wife is Swedish, and we go to Sweden and everyone is rattling off in Swedish. It’s like, ‘OK, I can just read a book.’ -Will Ferrell

I do have a ski lift named after me in Sweden… It’s an honour. I got to smash a bottle against the first pillar and say, ‘I name this chairlift James Blunt. God bless her and all who rides me.’ -James Blunt

Your grandmother always used to say lingonberry jam is like Swedish summer in a jar. The Swedes love their lingonberries. It’s not so sweet, sort of like cranberry sauce. –Sandra Lee

5 Things to Pack for Your Trip to Sweden


Germany - Berlin - Suitcase and Day Bag packing to leave


The Lonely Planet Sweden guidebook for your trip. It can be hard to find big, international guidebooks once you land (or they’ll be way overpriced). Get yours ahead of time, either a hard copy or on a Kindle.

An Unlocked Cell Phone so that you can use a Swedish sim card while here to help navigate public transportation and when you’re on the road.


Backup Charging Bank for your cell phone since you’ll be using it as a camera, GPS, and general travel genie.


A Camera since Sweden is super photogenic. I use a mix of my Nikon D810 and my  Samsung8 smartphone these days.


A Great Day Bag so you can carry what you need with you (like your camera, snacks, water, sunscreen, cash, etc). My current favorite is the Pacsafe Citysafe, which is especially great for Swedish cities because it has many anti-theft features designed to deter pickpockets. It also transitions to a night bag more easily and won’t embarrass you if you go to dinner directly after sightseeing all day.

Don’t Forget About Travel Insurance!


Before you leave for Sweden make sure you have a valid Travel Insurance Policy because accidents happen on the road. I pay for World Nomads, and I happily recommend them. It’s especially important to get travel insurance if you’ll be hanging out in cities like Stockholm where tourists can easily become the targets of pickpockets or participating in any winter activities.


I have been a paying customer of World Nomads for travel insurance for three years, and I happily recommend them.  If you get sick, injured, or have your stuff stolen, you’ll be happy to have the ability to pay for your medical bills or replace what’s stolen or broken.
