Currency and credit cards

Sweden is one of three EU countries (along with Denmark and the UK) that opted to keep their currency and not use the Euro. The currency in Sweden is called the Swedish crown, or the krona (SEK). Credit and debit cards are accepted almost everywhere in Stockholm. Forex is the place to exchange money or buy SEK. They are found throughout the city at 17 locations, including Arlanda, the train station, NK department store and the Old Town. They have good exchange rates there and do money transfers as well.



Electrical sockets (outlets) in Sweden are one of the two European standard electrical socket types, and usually supply electricity at between 220 and 240 volts AC.
