Thousands of foreign students go to Sweden each year to study. Some of them like Sweden so much they go back again after graduation. The Local has interviewed former exchange students who has returned to Sweden to find out what attracted them to Sweden. Italian Claudia Żelazowska is one of them:

"When I came back from Sweden no one could understand why I loved it so much," she tells The Local. "My friends didn't understand the things I experienced. I missed the international environment and meeting people from all over the world."
