The Swedish Number

New Tourism Initiative Lets You Speak To Random Swede

How would you like to chat with a random Swede? Then give a call to The Swedish Number. It’s a new phone number set up by the Swedish Tourist Association allowing you to call up a random Swede and talk about… whatever. Swedes who choose to participate can download an app that allows them to accept calls, so see which Swede you end up talking to, by calling +46 771 793 336. The number was established to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the country abolishing censorship.
