School Holidays Sweden

In Sweden there are slight differences in the school holiday dates per region or city. There is no difference between primary or secondary education. 

Most Swedish school holidays are determined centrally by the government. Only in case of the winter holiday and the Easter holidays there are regional differences. During the winter holiday Sweden is divided in 4 regions (Middle-Sweden, South-Sweden, North-Sweden and Stockholm) and only in Stockholm and Middle-Sweden schools are closed for 1 week for Easter holidays. Below are the dates for 2017 and 2018.
