Czechs in Sweden


Sweden has a sizable Czech community, many of whom moved there following the Soviet Invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968. But they are not all "68ers" - there are also quite a few young Czechs in Sweden. Ian Willoughby spoke to members of both generations on a recent visit to Stockholm, and we have now gathered all of his reports from the Swedish capital on one page. We hope you enjoy them, wherever you come from!
