Sweden relaxes rules for EU travellers
Since the 1st July 2021, visitors from the European Union holding a “Green Pass” in the form of a European Union Digital COVID-19 Certificate (EUDCC) will be allowed to enter Sweden without adhering to quarantine rules. Available in both digital and paper versions, the EUDCC is proof that the holder has tested negative, has been vaccinated against, or has recovered from COVID-19. All certificates must feature a QR code which contains essential information and a digital signature for authenticity.
In addition, visitors from Finland, Norway, Denmark and Iceland do not need to show proof of testing, recovery or vaccination for entry into Sweden.
Visit Ale’s Stones, a mystical megalithic monument from the Nordic Iron Age on Sweden’s Baltic coast
Dating back more than 1400 years, Ales Stenar, or the Ale’s Stones, monument in Skåne County consists of 59 rock boulders arranged in the outline of a ship. Located ten kilometres east of Ystad in the south of Sweden, this ancient monument overlooking the Kåseberga hills stretches 67 metres long and 19 metres wide and is said to date back to the early Nordic Iron Age. Some historians believe it’s a burial monument, while others are convinced it’s an ancient astronomical clock dating back to the Bronze Age, because the sun sets at specific points during the summer and winter solstice. Whichever it maybe, it’s well worth visiting these magical mystical monoliths not least for magnificent views over Skåne and the Baltic Sea.
