Money & Tipping

Sweden's currency is the Swedish Krona (SEK). Sweden is moving towards a cashless country. Most self-serve kiosks will require credit cards with chip and pin (not chip and signature). http://www.nytimes.com/2015/12/27/business/international/in-sweden-a-cash-free-future-nears.html

A small tip is appreciated but not expected when dining in restaurants or taking a taxi.

Local Transportation

The town is small and is easily explored on foot.
