Sweden (i/ˈswiːdən/ swee-dən; Swedish: Sverige [ˈsværjɛ]), officially the Kingdom of Sweden (Swedish:  Konungariket Sverige), is a Nordic country on the Scandinavian Peninsula in Northern Europe. Sweden borders with Norway and Finland, and is connected to Denmark by a bridge-tunnel across the Øresund.

Sweden is the third largest country in the European Union by area. Sweden's capital city is Stockholm, which is also the largest city.

Sweden emerged as an independent and unified country during the Middle Ages. In the 17th century, the country expanded its territories to form the Swedish Empire. The empire grew to be one of the great powers of Europe in the 17th and early 18th century.
