The National Day of Sweden – June 6th

Swedish National Day celebrations
Swedish National Day Celebration at Skansen, Stockholm

Swedish National Day is celebrated all over Sweden on 6th of June. This is the day to experience the Swedish-ness. Swedish King and Queen join rest of the public and celebrate the National Day at Skansen, Stockholm’s open-air museum.

“Most fascinating, memorable and pleasant experience while in Sweden was to celebrate Swedish National Day in Stockholm.”

Before 2004, National Day was not celebrated as its done today. That was because there was no holiday. This all changed in 2004 when Swedish Parliment voted for a public holiday on Swedish National Day.

Every year; people wear Swedish traditional dresses, sing songs and enjoy the holiday with Swedish Pride.
