Smoking in Sweden

Smoking in Swedish bars and restaurants has been banned since 2005. A new outdoor smoking ban in certain public places, including playgrounds and train station platforms, has taken effect since July 2019. The new ban, includes e-cigarettes.

According to “Tobaksrökning, daglig” Smoking in Sweden is at a very low prevalence; only 11% of the total Swedish population (8% of men and 10% of women) smoked daily in 2016. Around another 10% smoke occasionally.

According to the new law, the goal is to make the Scandinavian country smoke-free by 2025.

Fishing rules in Sweden

Swedish citizens may fish without a licence in public waters. Foreign citizens may fish without a licence in those waters as long as they use hand gear.

The basic rules of the Right of Public Access always apply: show consideration, don’t disturb, and don’t destroy.

Fishing is prohibited within 100 meters of stationary fishing gear, including fish farms. Fishing with nets, trolling (with or without motor), tip-up fishing and the like are not permitted without a license.

Sport fishing without a licence is allowed in certain private waters along the coasts and in Sweden’s five largest lakes—the VĂ€nern, the VĂ€ttern, the MĂ€laren, the HjĂ€lmaren and the Storsjön (in JĂ€mtland).

The Swedish coastlines, rivers and its largest lakes, such as VĂ€nern and VĂ€ttern, boast excellent salmon and trout fishing. Just as the waters in downtown Stockholm which are teeming with premium salmon and sea trout.

A Skyview of Stockholm

The Skyview in Globen feels like Swedens answer to the London Eye or the Burj Khalifa. If you love Stockholm, then you might want to consider viewing it from 424 feet above sea level. I recently experienced Skyview with my 5 year old daughter, and she loved it, the view is truly stunning as Globen is at the heart of Södermalm.  Although height is not my forte, I really enjoyed the ride which lasted for 20 minute. Overall its a memorable thing to do with a loved one and you can take amazing pictures with Stockholm as your backdrop.
