For anyone who's looking forward to explore a highly civilized and peaceful country, Sweden is likely one of the best options available in Europe. Featuring one of the most modern advanced welfare states, this country is known for its high life standard and life expectancy. Locals are very polite and friendly, although they often seem reserved at first glance. This is a great place to visit if you value your privacy, since that's something every Swedish citizen mindfully respects. They are not the kind of people who will interfere with your routine, even if you happen to be very famous. Touristic highlights here include practicing sports (water sports, trekking, skiing and cycling, mostly), shopping and nightlife. While roaming about the Swedish cities it's hard not to be impressed with how neat and well attended everything looks. If you favour air travel, you will find no shortage of Sweden flights available to and from most International airports. Travelling by land is also an option, especially if you want to visit nearby countries such as Norway and Finland (or Denmark, which connects to Sweden through a rather extensive bridge).
