In Sweden

Svealand [ˈsveːaˈland] is the middle of the three lands of Sweden, between Götaland and Norrland.

Götaland is the southernmost of the three lands that make up Sweden. It is home to almost half of the Sweden's population and probably even a larger share of its cultural and historical sights.

Norrland is one of three lands of Sweden besides Svealand and Götaland. Norrland encompasses two-thirds of the country's surface, but no more than 12 per cent of its population; currently about 1.15 million.

Scania is the southernmost county, as well as a traditional province, in Sweden. It is known for its rich agricultural fields, its old history, long beaches, Danish heritage and a remarkable local accent.

Gotland is Sweden's largest island, in the middle of the Baltic Sea. Some 50,000 people live here all year.
