Chicago has a long history of relations with Sweden. The early immigrants from Sweden went into construction and it is no exaggeration to say that Chicago was built by Swedes including many of the famous skyscrapers. At one point in time, Chicago came second after Stockholm in terms of number of Swedish inhabitants.
