Its timezone is CET (UTC+1), putting the capital city of Stockholm an hour ahead of London. Its international dialling code is +46 and its currency is the Swedish krona.

How should I address my parcel for delivery to Sweden?
It is important to be aware that deliveries to Sweden need an ISO-2 country code for international deliveries. This is not as complicated as it sounds and is explained in Sweden's Universal Postal Union (UPU) guide, available here: http://www.upu.int/fileadmin/documentsFiles/activities/addressingUnit/sweEn.pdf
In accordance with UPU guidelines for outward international mail, the name of the country of destination must be printed on the last line of address, in capital letters, in the language of the dispatching country or in an internationally recognised language.
