Every year since 1893, Sweden celebrates its national holiday.

The holiday which is celebrated on June 6th indicates two important national events. The first is the crowning of the king Gustav Vasa on June 6th 1523 and the second is the day when the Swedish constitute was agreed upon on June 6th 1809. Thousands locals and tourists attend the celebrations that take place on the open Museum, Skansen (it is recommended to make a room reservation in advance).

Over the years it was known as National Flag Day but in time it became a public holiday. The kingdom family participates in the holiday’s traditional parade through the city streets toward Skansen.

Sweden background and overview
A military power during the 17th century, Sweden has not participated in any war in almost two centuries. An armed neutrality was preserved in both World Wars. Sweden's long-successful economic formula of a capitalist system interlarded with substantial welfare elements was challenged in the 1990s by high unemployment and in 2000-02 by the global economic downturn, but fiscal discipline over the past several years has allowed the country to weather economic vagaries. Indecision over the country's role in the political and economic integration of Europe delayed Sweden's entry into the EU until 1995, and waived the introduction of the euro in 1999.
