Living in Stockholm

  • Health care 🏥

    The Swedish healthcare system is financed by a social insurance that provides all citizens with subsidised healthcare through the government. There are both public and private providers of healthcare. If you have obtained a Swedish personal identity number, or are a holder of the European Health Insurance Card, you are entitled to healthcare at the standard patient fee, with some exceptions depending on tax payer status. When being employed by Peltarion - you are also included in Health Insurance to complement the regular system.

  • Parental days 👶🏼

    The Swedish parental leave – the so-called föräldrapenning is a generous one. It is paid out for 480 days (approximately 16 months) for each child. Parents are because of gender equality aspects encouraged to share the leave. That is why 90 days out of the total 480 days are reserved for each parent. Only single custody parents are entitled to take out the 480 days on their own. Parents generally get 80% of their salary (up to a set amount) if they have been working legally in Sweden for at least 240 days and paid taxes.

  • Lifestyle 🤸🏻‍♀️

    It struck the perfect balance between the excitement of the city life and closeness to nature. In Stockholm, you can go from high-street shopping on Drottninggatan to jumping in the lake within the space of 20 minutes. Sat alongside lake Mälaren and on the edge of the Baltic sea, the city's built on water and you can see it sparkling in the distance pretty much wherever you go – and there's a certain sense of calm about it. We Stockholmers love the outdoors and fill the warmer months with barbecues, sporting events, visits to the countryside and the colder ones with skiing weekend, hikes in the snow and ice skating. There is always something to do & see when in Stockholm!
