• Discover the life of Ingmar Bergman in Sweden

    2010-08-24

    Sweden is a beautiful country, but film fans don't need to be told that, as they've likely seen the country on full display in the movies of acclaimed Swedish director Ingmar Bergman. Bergman spent most of his life in Sweden and included the country in nearly all of his films.

    In fact, in the later years of his life, Bergman moved to a small island off the coast of the country known as Faro. The extremely scenic beauty of this island can be seen in films such as "Scenes from a Marriage," "Persona" and a documentary about the director known as "Bergman Island" that chronicled the last few years of his life on the island.

    Though the island has a population of under 1,000, it has become a popular tourist destination after the director's death. Travelers could easily rent one of the many summer homes on the island and enjoy the many bars and restaurants that have made it popular among Swedes and foreigners alike.

    Those who want to learn more about the director should take the trip to Stockholm, where they can view the director's entire personal archives at the Swedish Film Institute. In addition to the vast amount of Bergman artifacts on display, travelers can take in modern Swedish and international cinema there as well.

    Hardcore fans may also want to take some time to visit Uppsala, a charming small town where Bergman was born.
