2. Sweden's Culture
Sweden's Culture I t is undoubtedly through the export of its culture that Sweden has had its greatest impact upon the world.
Sweden's Culture I Swedish design and architecture are best known through their contribution to the functionalist movement, which in the 1930s introduced the world to the clean, sophisticated designs that we now associate as much with modernism itself as with Scandinavia and Sweden in particular. Among the notable figures in this movement was the architect Erik Gunnar Asplund. In literature, Sweden is best known for the groundbreaking works of August Strindberg, one of the original badboys of modernism. Among Sweden's many other internationally-known writers are Selma Lagerlöf, Vilhelm Moberg, Pär Lagerkvist and Astrid Lindgren, the last of whom is better known through the name of her most famous character, Pippi Longstocking. Without question, the most universally venerated aspect of Swedish culture is film. Ingmar Bergman, Greta Garbo, Max von Sydow, Liv Ullman, Anita Ekberg, and Ingrid Bergman, all Swedes, are all among the greatest names in cinema history. Bergman's visually sensuous and psychologically intimate films created a worldwide sensation in the 1950s and 1960s, and he ranks today among the best loved and most influential filmmakers of all time. Among Bergman's masterworks are Wild Strawberries, Smiles of a Summer Night, The Seventh Seal, Cries and Whispers, Autumn Sonata, Scenes from a Marriage

Sweden is bordered by Norway to the west and Finland to the northeast, with a long Baltic coast to the east and south. Sweden, Swed. Sverige, officially Kingdom of Sweden, constitutional monarchy, N Europe, occupying the eastern part of the Scandinavian peninsula. It borders on Norway in the west, on Finland in the northeast, on the Gulf of Bothnia in the east, on the Baltic Sea in the south, the Kattegat, and the Skagerrak in the southwest. The country includes several islands, notably Gotland and Öland, in the Baltic. Stockholm is Sweden's capital and largest city. Sweden is a land of cultural contrast, from the Danish influence of the southwest to the nomadic Laplanders in the wild Arctic north. And while urban Sweden is stylish, modern and sophisticated, the countryside offers many simpler pleasures for those in search of tranquility.Approximately half the country is forested and most of the many thousands of lakes are situated in the southern central area. The largest lake is Vänern, with an area of 5540 sq km (2140 sq miles). Swedish Lapland to the north is mountainous and extends into the Arctic Circle.
Sweden’s scenery has a gentler charm than that of neighboring Norway’s rugged coast. Much of Sweden is swathed in forest, and there are thousands of lakes, notably large stretches of water between Gothenburg and the capital, Stockholm. The lakeside resort of Östersund, in the center of Sweden, is popular with Scandinavians, but most visitors opt first for the cities and the Baltic islands: the largest island, Gotland, with its array of ruined medieval churches, is a particular highlight. Another major attraction is the so-called ‘Kingdom of Crystal’, a forested area between Malmö and Stockholm boasting many fine glassworks.

The indigenous Sami (sometimes called Lapp) people live in the northernmost part of the country and the neighboring states. Location and Geography. The land area is 173,732 square miles (449,964 square kilometers). Except for mountain chains in the north and west along the Norwegian border, the land is relatively flat.

Published: Sunday 30th March 2008 Sweden: "Culture and Art Should Not Be Suppressed by the CCP"
By Wang Qinghan
Swedish Member of Parliament and member of the foreign relations committee Cecilia Wigstrom attended the third show of the Chinese Spectacular on March 25th, 2008 in Stockholm, Sweden. She said that such a great show should not be suppressed by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). She said she appreciated every aspect of the show. The CCP interfered with the Divine Performing Arts show, calling and intimidating Swedish government officials. The resultant uproar has caught the attention of many Swedish people, drawing sell-out crowds to the performances. Swedish Member of Parliament Cecilia Wigstrom MP Wigstrom is a 35-year-old politician, elected to parliament in 2002. She said, "The Chinese Spectacular gives us a chance to learn more about Chinese culture. I enjoyed the meaningful dances, drums, songs, piano and other musical instruments. Perfect! I never thought it could be so fantastic." MP Wigstrom sent a welcome letter to Divine Performing Arts in mid-March, which stated, "This is an issue of respecting freedom of expression. Each one has freedom of speech, press, assembly and petition no matter what his belief, gender, political view and lifestyle are. These are basic human rights. Any government that ignores these basic human rights cannot be considered a people's government."

CULTURE The four major Scandinavian languages - Danish, Swedish, Norwegian and Icelandic - are closely related. The languages have played an important role in creating and preserving national identity. Finnish, on the other hand, is not a Germanic language, and is completely different from the others. While a Swede and a Dane often understand each other fairly well in a conversation, neither of them would understand a Finn (unless, of course, they have studied Finnish). In cases like that, English is likely to be used. (It should be kept in mind, though, that a fairly large minority of people in Finland have Swedish as their native tongue and many people in the country understand both Finnish and Swedish). One of the minority languages, Sami, is spoken by Sweden's oldest ethnic minority, the Sami. The area, historically related to this group of people, can be found in northern Sweden, as well as in northern Finland and Norway. Today, however, many of them have moved to southern Sweden and Stockholm is sometimes said to be "the largest Sami settlement in Sweden". The native tongue of the Sami is not related to Swedish. However, most of the Sami peolple have become bilingual in the process of adaption.

    Print Get the Mag Weekly Updates Text Size Sweden has a long tradition of research and innovation. Carlos Linnaeus, J. J. Berzelius, and C. W Scheele were just a few of the scientific giants of the 18th century. One of the foremost scientists and innovators of the 19th century was Alfred Nobel, whose legacy is the Nobel Prize. Thus, Sweden has become a world leader in two of the technology areas most likely to shape the 21st century: wireless technologies and biotechnology. A foreign direct investment boom in Sweden since the mid 1990's is the external recognition of Sweden's position within these important global growth sectors. Sweden's success as an innovative nation stands on a number of pillars, including a stable political context and sound macroeconomic policies. In addition, since the 1990s, Sweden has engaged in a number of activities to improve the microeconomic climate. A more dynamic competitive environment has emerged through the deregulation of telecom, transportation, energy and media infrastructure, privatization schemes and the opening of financial and currency markets. Improvements in the intensity of local competition, availability of venture capital, company innovativeness and quality of scientific and engineering talent, have contributed to strengthen the position.

Sweden : Culture
The genuine rural folk traditions are disappearing with increasing settlement in urban areas. Among those still vital in Gotland, Dalarna, and various other areas are special national costumes, dances, folk music, and the like, and many traditions are retained even in urban settlements. Spring is celebrated on the last night of April with bonfires and song across the nation. This is a great students' festival in university towns, such as Uppsala and Lund. The bright Midsummer Eve is celebrated around June 24, about the time of the year's longest day; in the ceremony a large pole, decorated with flowers and leaves, is placed into the ground. Some celebrations have a religious association: Advent, St. Lucia's Day, Christmas, Easter, and Whitsuntide. Pagan elements are still sometimes noticeable in these holiday ceremonies. J.H. Roman, an 18th-century composer, has been called the father of Swedish music, but the Romantic composer Franz Berwald received wider acclaim for his 19th-century symphonies and other works. famous 20th-century composers include the “Monday group,” who were inspired by the antiromantic Hilding Rosenberg in the 1920s and drew also upon leading modern composers from abroad. The vital Swedish folk song has been developed further by a number of musicians. A number of Swedish opera singers, among them Jenny Lind, Jussi Björling, and Birgit Nilsson, gained renown throughout the world. Blekinge Dalarna Gavleborg Gotland ... AskBabyNames @ 2008 MapZones
