vatten

Just plain water?

Bottled water can be still or carbonated, with our without flavor, and may or may not be characterized by minerals from a certain spring. While Sweden has the luxury of having a high quality tap water that is generally pure and safe to drink, bottled water has become more and more popular in recent years. Mineral water also has a strong tradition in Sweden, though; in the 18th century, spring waters were believed to have healing powers, and people gathered at health spas by the mineral wells to “drink the waters”.
