Most customs are alike all over the occidental world, but there's one thing, that I have to tell you about us Swedes. When we go into someone's home, we remove our shoes, even if we don't live there, but only are guests. But it seems like in most other countries, it's considered rude to remove your shoes in a home, unless you live there. While if you don't remove your shoes in a Swedish home, it might not be considered rude, but people might think you're weird. Fortuneately, I've never visited any homes outside Sweden, so I've never offended anyone by removing my shoes.
