Scandinavia and especially Sweden is a fabulous travel destination. The Little Mermaid Statue – If you have ever seen the Disney movie “The Little Mermaid” or read the original story by Hans Christian Andersen, then you know that the story is about a mermaid who trades in everything to live on land with a handsome prince. This statue was inspired by the story and sits on the Langelinie Pier of Copenhagen. It’s easily reached by foot or bike, but you can also view it on a boat tour. The statue is a must see and is often referred to as the symbol of Denmark.
Bornholm, Denmark – Scandinavia isn’t a place synonymous with beaches, but there are good ones where you can work on your tan and your swimming form (cold waters, be damned) on the tiny Baltic Sea island of Bornholm, just a 35-minute flight from Copenhagen. Known as Denmark’s sunniest locale, it’s a well-kept secret among Danes who come for the laid-back farm-to-table restaurants, picture-perfect fishing villages, and serene forest landscapes. Book a room at the minimal yet stylish Nordlandet hotel, a simple seaside inn whose jewel is an elegant Nordic dining room overlooking the sea, then set off to discover the island’s striking round churches, which date back to 1150.

Bergen and the fjords, Norway – Bergen looks like it was built for a photoshoot, but its beauty pales in comparison to the epic fjords nearby. You might find that the staggering views are rewarding enough (imagine soaring mountains reflected in mirror-smooth water), but otherwise there’s a whole host of adrenaline-pumping activities to keep you occupied. Anyone for paragliding?
Another thing you should see is a 130-meter wide panoramic view from SkyView which is a rather new attraction in the largest hemispherical spherical building on earth, the “Ericsson Globe”. Two elevators depart every 10 minutes, and the total time of the trip takes about 30 minutes. SkyView has been very popular since its inception in 2010. In the first year, it has been visited by about 160,000 passengers, so it is recommended to reserve a seat before arriving. Nearby the “SkyView”, there is a restaurant, a cafe, and a souvenir shop, for your comfort.
Stockholm – Sweden’s capital, the vibrant city of Stockholm sits on a series of 14 islands. A photographer’s dream, its grand waterfront buildings contrast with a beautifully preserved old town, miles of open parkland and some impressive examples of contemporary architecture. But it’s not all about the views. Stockholm boasts some top-class museums – from the Academy of Fine Arts to the people-pleasing Abba Museum – plus plenty of palaces, where you can marvel at the lavish lifestyles of the royals.

When walking in Copenhagen, it is basically impossible to miss the very unique and ancient building – the Round Tower. It is the viewing tower and astronomical observatory, that is connected to the academic library. The 17th-century tower has a vintage style, and the combination of yellow and red bricks create an unique design. This tower impresses not only with its shape but also with a wide corridor, that rises upwards like a spiral – this is the only way to reach the observation deck and the library hall, where various exhibitions and concerts often take place.
