Ever heard of Zlatan, Abba or Björn Borg?

I am quite sure you have heard of Zlatan Ibrahimovic? If not, he’s one of the greatest soccer players of all times. And he’s from Sweden.

Maybe you’ve heard of Abba, Greta Thunberg, Alexander Skarsgård, Icona Pop and Robyn too? Did you know they’re all from Sweden?

Abba was (and still is) a very popular pop-group in the 70:s and 80:s, with hits like Mamma Mia, Dancing Queen and Waterloo. Greta Thunberg is a world famous environmental activist, who’s travelling around the globe to meet with the big leaders. And she’s only 16!

Alexander Skarsgård is one of five sibblings from the Skarsgård-family. If you’ve seen Tarzan, you’ve seen Alexander (or at least his abs 🤭). His dad, Stellan Skarsgård, is also a well known actor both in Sweden and Hollywood.

The Swedish pop-duo Icona Pop is hugely popular, not only in Sweden but in China and Germany too. The same goes for singer/songwriter Robyn who is well known all over the world.

Then there is Björn Borg, Ingemar Stenmark, Pernilla Wiberg, Pia Sundhage, Max von Sydow, Mikael Nykvist, Zara Larsson, Rebecka Ferguson, Britt Ekland, Ingemar Bergman, Max Martin, Malin Åkerman, Christer Fuglesang… I suggest you Google them!
