This is a list of institutions related to the culture of Sweden.

Swedish 20th-century culture is noted by pioneering works by the early days of cinema, with Mauritz Stiller and Victor Sjöström. Later, moguls like Ingmar Bergman and actresses such as Greta Garbo, Ingrid Bergman and Anita Ekberg made careers abroad. Swedish music is in many minds connected with ABBA, although more recently indie bands like The Soundtrack of Our Lives, The Hives, Sahara Hotnights and The (International) Noise Conspiracy have started achieving international fame. The Swedish hip hop scene is booming. Swedish literature is also vibrant and active, and Sweden ranks third in the list of countries with the most Nobel Prize laureates in literature.
