Svenska Dagbladet (common abbreviation SvD; the title translates as "the Swedish daily paper") is a daily newspaper in Sweden.


Front page of the first issue of Svenska Dagbladet (18 December 1884)

The first issue of Svenska Dagbladet appeared on 18 December 1884. The paper is published in Stockholm and provides coverage of national and international news as well as local coverage of the Greater Stockholm region. Its subscribers are concentrated in the capital, but it is distributed in most of Sweden.

The paper is owned by Schibsted.[1] The stated position of the editorial page is "independently moderate" (oberoende moderat), which means it is independent but adheres to the liberal conservatism of the Moderate Party.

The paper had a circulation of 187,100 copies in weekdays in 2005.[1] Among Swedish morning newspapers, Svenska Dagbladet had the third largest circulation (195,200 in 2007), after Dagens Nyheter and Göteborgs-Posten.[2] The circulation of the paper was 185,600 copies in 2011.[3] It was 174,400 copies in 2012.[4]

Since 1925, Svenska Dagbladet has awarded an individual sportsperson or a team the Svenska Dagbladet Gold Medal at the end of each year.
