Coronavirus: Tourists exchange lock for Sweden


Sweden kept pubs, restaurants and shops open throughout the Covid 19 pandemic.The most open approach attracts an increasing number of British and European tourists, who have breached national guidelines against travelling globally in search of a beer or even a haircut.

The BBC spoke to Oana Marcu, 34, from London, who has been in Stockholm since March, British actor Lewis Sycamore, 25, who has just arrived to visit his Swedish girlfriend, and Peter Clark, 32, a British barber in the Swedish capital who found it uncomfortable to serve tourists who escape the lockdowns in their own country.
