Sweden is a great place for retail shopping. As the home of IKEA, the country is legendary for its booming modern interior design industry and visitors will be able to find top-notch fashion and textiles. The country is one of the more expensive places to shop in Europe, but the exclusive products can sometimes make the high price tag seem immaterial. Stockholm is where most of the pioneering happens, but there are plenty of other places around the realm to find interesting pieces. Glassware is also a vast part of the design industry and handmade ornaments and accessories have become well-liked souvenirs. The Kingdom Of Crystal is home to a wide range of glass creations where you can see merchants crafty, blowing and finalizing their pieces by hand.
