Swedish nature
Swedish Nature

“Sweden is 1,600 kilometres from the south to the north. This means that the nature varies in different parts of Sweden. Cultivated land accounts for some eight per cent of the area, as do fells and mountains. Urban settlements occupy a few per cent. The rest, half the country, is covered by forest. Sweden has a lot of water. There are 96,000 lakes, large and small, which together with the nations' wetlands cover approximately one fifth of the country's surface.”(http://www.internat.naturvardsverket.se)
