On May 16th, CITO 16/17 held an event where the popular Swedish game Kubb (sometimes referred to as “Viking Chess”) was played. Unfortunately, there was heavy rainfall during the entire event, emulating a typical Swedish summer night perfectly, however some people were brave enough to conquer the rain and play regardless of the weather conditions. Other than Kubb, a music quiz was held and some snacks were served to the guests inside the CITO office.
Thanks to everyone who attended despite the unfortunate weather conditions! This was the last event of CITO 16/17, however please note that the office will remain open at the regular opening hours until May 30th. You are all very welcome to join us there!

On March 21st, the very popular day “Fettisdagen” (Fat Tuesday) was celebrated in the CITO office. Of course, during this event, a huge amount of Semlas were consumed by the attendants. The guests were also challenged with a (quite tricky) Tipspromenad-quiz with questions about Sweden. We had a really good time, and hope that all of the guests who attended did as well!
Stay tuned for more updates and events from us in the future!
