-- You don’t have to learn Swedish. Almost everyone in Sweden speaks English and sometimes other languages.

-- Many restaurants, shops, and transportation in Stockholm do not accept cash. It is best to have a credit card with you to pay everywhere. Cash should be in SEK. Some places, but not all, also accept the Euro.
