Sweden, officially called the Kingdom of Sweden, is a Scandinavian constitutional monarchy in Northern Europe. Sweden borders Norway, Finland and Denmark. Its capital city is Stockholm.[1]

History

Xenophilius and Luna Lovegood believed that Crumple-Horned Snorkacks were native to Sweden and went on an expedition to find them there in the summer of 1996, using the money the Daily Prophet paid them in order to re-print Harry Potter's account of Lord Voldemort's return.[2]

The Swedish Short-Snout was a dragon native to the country.[3][4] During the 1994 Triwizard Tournament held at Hogwarts, Cedric Diggory tried to steal a golden egg from a Swedish Short-Snout during the first task of the tournament.[4]

Magical education

Swedish wizards and witches had the option to attend Durmstrang Institute,[5] as it accepted students all over Northern and Eastern Europe, as long as they had at least one magical parent. Sweden was one possible location of said school.[5]
