    Sweden shines as a beacon of culture in Civilization VI: Gathering Storm. Led by Kristina, one of the most educated women of the 17th century, Sweden is one of the best civs to pursue a Culture or Diplomatic victory. Fill up those Great Work slots, settle cities on as many varied terrain types as possible, and build Open Air Museums in every city and Sweden will be well on its way to outpacing its competitors.


    Unique Improvement – Open-Air Museum

    Limit one per city. Increases Loyalty, and boosts Culture and Tourism for each type of terrain in which at least one Swedish city has been founded.


    Unique Building – Queen’s Bibliotheque

    Constructed as a second tier building within the Government Plaza, where it provides two Great Works slots of Writing, Music, and any type of Art. Awards a Governor Title once completed.

    Unique Ability – Nobel Prize

    When earning a Great Person, Sweden receives additional Diplomatic Favor. Sweden gets extra Great Engineer points from Factories and extra Great Scientist points from Universities. Unlocks three unique World Congress competitions in the Industrial Era if Sweden is in the game.


    Unique Unit – Carolean

    Anti-cavalry unit unlocked in the Renaissance era. Replaces the Pike and Shot, has faster movement, and receives additional Combat Strength for each unused Movement point.

    Kristina Unique Ability – Minerva of the North

    Allows Kristina to construct the Queen’s Bibliotheque building in the Government Plaza, and buildings with at least three Great Work slots and Wonders with at least two Great Work slots are automatically themed when all of their slots are filled.

    Sweden sounds really good at Culture victory. I say "Minerva of the North" works with archaeological museums, which are already strong, so Sweden sounds powerful at a culture victory. Plus Art Museums get a buff while playing Kristina. The bonus Great Scientists points from Universities sounds like it could be very helpful if used right. (I hope the AI can use it properly)

    You changed your profile picture pretty quickly!

    Yes, she’s really well done. Her expressions alone.

    They severely miscounted the new unique improvements, didn't they?

    Seems to be quite strong, although you'll miss out on the other 2nd tier government plaza buildings. The improvement is quite good, as it seems.

    Also: themed wonders? This is new, right?

    I'd like to see Kristinas reaction to a declaration of war. Will she throw the book into the camera?

    So the bonus was similar to British Museum but much better. This is cool! Cultural and Diplomatic civ, when we thought this will be strong on science!
    Bonus on GS and GE is okay too.
