Two Worlds United Programs in Sweden for High School students
is among the most civilized of countries. It has much to offer
the students from its lovely capital, Stockholm, to its tranquil
lake country, to the mysterious island of Gotland, with its 12
haunting church ruins. In the cozy southern region of Skāne,
the thatched cottages and lively residents are testimony to
centuries of Danish dominion. The "kingdom of glass,"
between the southern towns of Kalmar and Vaxjo, is yet another
lure for the students.
It's possible to get a sampling of all that Sweden has to offer,
as air and rail travel are efficient and extensive. The students
can travel from Stockholm to the upper reaches of Sįpmi
(formerly known as Lapland) in little more than an hour. Boats
are ubiquitous here: Almost every self-respecting Swede has one,
and it seems that all of them are out in the Stockholm
archipelago on a summer Sunday afternoon. Sightseeing tours from
Stockholm extend far into the archipelago; and from Nynashamn,
about 48 kilometers (30 miles) south, you can get on a boat that
will take you on a full day trip through the islands or all the
way to Gotland. A fun place to study and travel.
