Wondering Where are the Best Places to Live in Sweden?

Living in the UK means being packed onto a few densely populated islands. It’s no wonder then, that the size and space on offer in Sweden is a major attraction. It has just a fifth of our population that’s spread across a country twice the size of Great Britain. Much of northern Sweden is covered in dense forests and remains largely unpopulated. The best places to live in Sweden therefore, lie to the south and are enduringly attractive to movers in the UK.

What’s it Like Moving to Sweden With a Young Family?

Moving to another country when you’re young and single is one thing. Moving abroad when you have a young family to consider is quite another. If Sweden is your destination, however, you have an immediate advantage. It’s considered one the best locations in the world for raising a young family. In a 2019 Unicef report, Sweden took top ranking for its family-friendly policies, when measured against 31 of the world’s wealthiest countries.

Schepens regularly provides removals for people moving to Sweden with a family. We asked some of our movers with children who are currently living in Sweden: what it is like to bringing up a young family in Stockholm, or Malmö?

Working in Sweden

Sweden regularly finds its way into the top 10 countries in the annual World Happiness Report. In 2020 it was ranked 7th with the ‘happiness’ in question being equally distributed between work life, home life and leisure time.

Many of them have stayed beyond their initial contract, or studies, because of the quality of life they’ve discovered. We asked those now living in Sweden what advice they’d give newcomers about working in Sweden. Here’s what they told us:

Why Millennials Want to Live in Sweden

More than that, though, it’s a city that is redefining work by flattening hierarchies, prioritising employee well-being, and enshrining flexible working in law.

At Schepens we’re getting to know the millennial generation better, as they’re now in their mid-late 20s and are spreading their wings. The millennials we’ve provided European removals for are confident, hungry for experience, and looking for a different relationship with work than their parents had.
