Copenhagen, Denmark
As if leaping from the pages of the fairytale book about the Snow Queen, dreamy Copenhagen is a real tidbit for travelers from all around the globe. Recently, the Danish people were recognized as the happiest nation in the world, and one of the reasons for that is certainly the indisputable beauty of their capital. Copenhagen is definitely the spot for a saturated cultural and artistic experience.

Choosing cycling as your way to explore marvelous Copenhagen is a perfect way to understand the local lifestyle and discover the major landmarks like the Town Hall Square, the Christiansborg Palace, the Old Danish Stock Exchange, and the symbol of Copenhagen, the statue of the Little Mermaid....

Flam, Norway
There's no denying that Norway is one of the most naturally beautiful destinations of our planet. And the jaw-dropping petite town of Flam is among the less-traveled of its corners, perfectly displaying the entire spectrum of the authentic Norwegian charm. Boasting an unparalleled location in the surroundings of Norwegian fjords, the petite village of Flam is, perhaps, the most inspiring of the destinations for a getaway. Plus, being the key hub of the world's most scenic railway (breathtaking Flamsbana), reaching Flam alone via the longest and deepest fjord in Europe, Sognefjord, passing waterfalls, mountain peaks, cliffs, and valleys is an experience of a lifetime on its own! The location of the village in the heart of western Norway's Aurland is another perk, as this part of the country is perfect for boat rides, hikes, and picturesque walks, offering many gorgeous viewpoints. So if Flam is on your travel radar, make sure to have your camera charged!...

Rich historical assets, inspiring modern art, simple yet tasteful design and innovations, Viking spirit, distinctive cuisine, and trendy coffee culture - what can unite all these features? Of course, the city in the spotlight of the discussion is beautiful Stockholm.

In fact, cosmopolitan Stockholm has activities for every taste. Whether you want to immerse in the local culture by visiting the Vasa Ship Museum or exploring the Royal Palace, trying meatballs with cranberry jam, taking a ride in the museum-like Stockholm metro, or even enjoying the simplicity of Scandinavian design by popping into an Ikea shop, be sure, the creative Swedes and their beloved capital won’t disappoint you in any case!...
