Sweden First time International traveler

edited May 2009 in - General Europe
This will be my first time traveling outside the U.S. to Europe, and alone at that. I am meeting friends, but I need to know some information about currency. What currency do I need? Are credit cards sufficient? If I take travelers checks, which is something else I have never used, when you use them, do you fill them out in Swedish currency amounts or U.S. dollar amounts when paying for something?

I appologize if these questions are a bit silly.....but I am just trying to get all the information I can so I don't seem so stupid when I get there...ha ha..

Thank you so much

    Stockholm is a save city even for trip alone. Public transportation is modern and clean, everyone speaks English.
