Planning a trip? Rest assured, according to “Safe Around,” Sweden is the 18th safest country in the world, based on the safest and most dangerous countries ranking (the report lists the U.S. as the 55th safest country).

The website also states “Sweden is one of the safest countries, to the point that travelers don’t have to consider any safety issues in Sweden at all, as long as they’re using basic safety tips and common sense. Crime rates in Sweden are much lower than in most other European countries and there are no health risks for Sweden travelers.”
