24 May is European Day of Parks. Did you know that Sweden established its first nine national parks as early as 1909, and that these were the first in Europe?  

Sweden today has 30 national parks, which reflect the different types of nature and landcapes in our vast country, from north to south. Many of the national parks, which are a way of preserving the common natural and cultural heritage, have visitor centres and easy walking trails. 🗺️
