what is the currency? Sweden uses the krona SEK.

Sweden is widely regarded as the most cashless society on the planet. Most of the country’s bank branches have stopped handling cash; many shops, museums and restaurants now only accept plastic or mobile payments. Most terminals in stores are supporting the use of paying with contactless cards.  In case that you need cash, ATMs are numerous and most credit cards (especially Visa and Mastercard) are accepted.
