Hi good people. I just felt like i could maybe help someone out there during these 15 minutes before i go to bed. I want to make you acquainted with the best banks we use in Sweden.These are the main banks in Sweden.These are also the banks that you would find everywhere especially in the main cities of Sweden namely Stockholm,Malmö and Gutenburg/Göteborg.
Get a pen and paper to put them down.Also make sure that your choice of saving and opening up a bank should be among these banks. I am going to put down their internet pages too so that you guys interested can go there and find some more information about them and how banking is done in Sweden. They usually have an English version, look for it when you come to their internet page.
