You should definitely come to Helsinki! The architecture and Finnish design are definitely something important for the world to see. There is also one of the coolest Finns, Ville Virtanen alias Darude. He has done so much to show the rest of the world Finland and he is definitely a cool guy.

I am a weekly commuter between London, UK and "Little London" in Sweden; Gothenburg. It cannot be stressed enough how much Gothenburg is shadowed Stockholm despite having almost the same population and at least as many attractions. It is Sweden's capital of Sport, Food, and Big cultual events. I'd say that that quality of life there can only be matched by Australia and South Africa despite fairly high taxes. If you go to Sweden don't miss out on Gothenburg!!!

I do agree generally with these comments about Sweden, though I would remind everyone that the quality of life is not measured stricktly by how beautiful the city and country are. Sweden offers an excellent enviroment to have a family so long as you want to live a "Normal" life. If are a motivated person who wants to wants to make a bit more money than people arround you, you will find that a good part of your salary is consumed by income taxes, the remainder is not sparred either since you will be paying disporportional amounts of money for parking, gas and other additional expenses associated with better than average( in Sweden) life style. Even food is taxed in Sweden!...I live in many countries around the world...I would say Sweden over all is a very good one...but far from heaven :)

Comment: Hello everybody, I have never been to Sweeden, but in my fantasies, it looks like a paradise! I have no problem with 6 months or more of gray days. I come from a tropical country but happiness, for me, has no connection with hot or cold weather... By the way, the lovely Sweeden Queen, Sylvia, has her roots in Brazil, too!

Whenever you ask Stockholmers about their home city, they unashamedly tell you that it's the most beautiful city in the world. Prettier than Paris? Prettier than Rome? Well, no. If you stick to the tourist trail of Gamla Stan, Drottningholm and Djurgarden, it's true that this is a very pretty city, as long as you are next to the water. However, the City area of Norrmalm and the commercial heart of Stockholm in general is as pretty as downtown Dresden - this is due to a misguided approach to town-planning in the 60s and 70s which saw some of Stockholm's oldest buildings torn down and replaced with some downright ugly modern-day edifaces. And I speak as an expert, coming from Leeds! I must admit that my experience is borne from a LONG dark winter here, and I know that the summers here are amazing. They have to be, otherwise everyone would emigrate to somewhere less grim in the winter. Like Sheffield. They do great takeaway pizza though. And the buses always run on time!

Mr Renck chose to show us some strange places of beautiful Sthlm. Let's hope for a second episode of Sthlm shot in spring time (with at least one other person in it)... Otherwise I think most of the episodes in the Series are really cool.

I love the city of Gothenburg. Not as many people as Stockholm.

Thanks Diane from the U.S.! Gothenburg needs that! We often get to be shadowed by Stockholm...

I live in Italy now after seven years in Sweden. Diane is absolutely correct: Gothenburg is an exceptional city to live in. If one sets aside the weather, Sweden has a quality of life far better than much touted Italy.
