6th June is the National Day of Sweden, known to be in honour of Gustav Vasa being elected as King in 1523 and the adoption of the new constitution in 1809. However, it wasn't until 2005 that it became an official public holiday, swapping it for Whit Monday (day after Pentecost).
Previous celebrations were known as 'The Day of the Swedish Flag' ('Svenska flaggans dag') which began in the early 1900s after Artur Hazelius, founder of Stockholm's biggest outdoor museum Skansen. On the day, members of the royal family travel to Skansen by carriage where celebrations are still held at the museum.
In more recent years, many new Swedes are now officially bestowed citizenship in special ceremonies around the country, nearly every town and city will have organised concerts and activities.
