You can easily travel the rest of Europe

Since you will be a part of EU once you are a citizen of Sweden you can easily decide to travel to the rest of Europe and is that not the most amazing point! There is an entire list of countries that should be on your agenda now. At some point you can decide if you want to move on to another country in the EU permanently.

It is a country with many social benefits

It is a country that has multiple social benefits. They will give you so many benefits you will get a feeling that you are living in Canada! That is how amazing they are!

They will be rude sometimes but once they are friends, they are great!

They are great when they are friends with you they can be amazing friends however otherwise they can be a little rude!

These are some of the pros and maybe some cons as well of living in Sweden. However the question is, what is it that you want from life? If Sweden is it for you, then go for it!
