Regional information

The information contained in the regional information pages will be of most use once you know your destination in Sweden. National Atlas of Sweden provides you with a map over Sweden.

Sweden is divided into 21 counties, or län, each of which has its own County Administration Board (only in Swedish), länsstyrelse and Governor, landshövding. The Board is a government body responsible for overseeing that the national goals, laid down by the Swedish parliament and government, are realised at county level. The Board also functions as a link between the county inhabitants, the municipal authorities, the Central Government, the Swedish Parliament and the central State. 


The country can be split into 5 main regions: North and South, West and Central, and the Stockholm & Uppsala region.
