There is also a bus service, the Swebus Express, which runs lines in the southern part of the country, and these are cheaper than the train. Driving is easier in the south of Sweden, where the distances between destinations are not so great in the north it is probably more convenient to fly or take the train. Swedish is spoken nationally, although most people will speak good English, although some older people will speak German as their first foreign language. The currency is the krona (SEK, plural kronor), and credit cards are accepted in most places, although you will usually need an ID card or passport when using them.
