The English team of Radio Romania International would like to congratulate all Swedish listeners on the occasion of Sweden's National Holiday!
We send our warmest greetings to all RRI's listeners who celebrate Sweden's National Holiday!
On June 6th, Sweden celebrates its national day. The tradition of celebrating this date started in honour of the election of King Gustav Vasa in 1523, as that was considered the foundation of modern Sweden.
The first constitution of the country was adopted on June 6th, 1809. Since 1916 June 6th is also the Swedish Flag Day.
