    Are Swedes the most unfriendly people in the world?

    Rumors. Yes, rumors from people who've been in Sweden and were treated coldly by the Swedes. It pays to be mentally prepared if you're visiting such a place. But I'm not leaving anything to chance or trusting the opinion of one person. The Swedes may not have liked his face, who knows? Anyway, back to the question. Is it true that Swedes are unfriendly to foreigners visiting their country?

    Re: Are Swedes the most unfriendly people in the world?

    I've lived in Norway, and I notced most scandinavians are not very friendly, at least not with strangers or even with their neighbors, lol. Truth is... socializing over there can be so hard, specially with the natives! Scandinavians are very relaxed people, but if you want to be friends with them... you need to make an effort. Of course some of them might be naturally friendly, but I'd not count on that! Btw, swedes seem to like when you try to speak swedish to them

    Unfriendly is the wrong word. Generally scandinavians are a bit introverted and not super social so starting a conversation can be a bit hard. But once you break the ice it's all good.

    Yeah, I'd never dare to call them unfriendly either, I guess they're not very social... which I can totally understand! Some scandinavian kids couldn't really socialize as kids, so they are lacking in that department, specially in Norway...! There were times some of the norwegian folks I met did or said some really odd things, but again, most of them lack good social skills.

    It's just part of the way of life in there. I do admit it feels a bit strange but it's not about being grumpy or hostile, it's just the way they are used to living.

    Re: Are Swedes the most unfriendly people in the world?

    Yeah, but to be honest with you... I'd prefer to live there. LOL. I'm quite an introvert, and I really like how they are not nosy at all over there! I love the fact they just mind their own business, because I've visited other euro countries and wow! In my country neighbors seem to gossip non stop, but in Norway... oh my! So nice! No one even cares :P I actually like that.

    I am planing my trip to SWEDEN after completing my bus trip to the tower niagara falls. I visited Sweden about 3 years back. I am going to share my own experience. I went to the park in Stockholm with my cousin . We were walking in the park ,suddenly a Swedish woman bumped into my cousin , we were really astonished but she pretended as nothing has happened. People in Sweden are really very hostile.

    Bunny what a nice experience you shared with us I enjoyed it . But I have no personal experience of being there. I am curious to know about it that is it true that Sweden's people are unfriendly? Why are they so unfriendly ? I will go there to know about it. Buddies You should also share your experiences for being there with us, we would love to know. I am waiting for your reply.
