It looks like my husband and I will be going to Sweden in early December and I've got a couple of questions.
First of all, does anybody know what the taxes would be on an apartment rental? We're thinking of a VRBO-type rental, and while the prices don't seem outrageous, it suddenly occurred to me to wonder how much more it will be per night. Would it be 12% as it is rumored to be for hotel rooms (which seems remarkably low to me!)
And as a second question, does anybody have a sense of whether Christmas festivities related to St Lucia's day are a big deal and worth arranging our schedule around? We'll be in London for the other part of our trip, and we're not that holiday-oriented, but is it a day when many places will be closed?
