Sommarlov – school’s out!
What an amazingly warm start of the Swedish summer we’ve had! The month of May has offered temperatures never before recorded!
During the summer months, June to August, the beaches and parks are filled with happy children enjoying their summer break, in Swedish called ‘Sommarlov’. Life in Sweden slows down as many offices close or aren’t working at full speed as many of their employees have taken some weeks off. Schools begin their autumn term in August.
