Sweden is a land of contrasts, from the Danish influences from the southwest to the Lapland nomads from the Arctic Circle. While urban areas are stylish, modern and sophisticated, the countryside offers the simple pleasures of those who search for peace. The landscape of Sweden is quieter than that of Norway. Much of the land is forest and hundreds of lakes and water strains are especially between Goteborg and the capital Stockholm. The resort of Ostersund, Sweden is popular among Scandinavians, but many visitors choose the Baltic Islands-the main attraction is the largest island, Gotland, which has medieval churches in ruins.
Copenhagen, Denmark – Amalienborg Museum in the Palace of Christian VIII, Little Mermaid, Kastellet, Marmorkirken / Church of marble and something extra: Tivoli Gardens Park – an ideal place to take your family or girlfriend to visit. It is one of the oldest amusement parks in the world and Walt Disney’s inspiration for Disneyland.
The park was opened on August 15 in 1843. Initially, it was named Tivoli & Vauxhall. It was done so on one hand to hint at Tivoli Gardens in Paris and the name of the locality Tivoli near Rome and on the other hand to hint at the Vauxhall Gardens in London. Georg Carstensen was the one who initiated the project. He argued the usefulness of the park in front of King Cristian VIII in an extremely pragmatic way, saying “when people have fun, they no longer think of politics”. So if you want to forget of the political issues that exist in general in the world, the best would be to take a plane ticket and make a brief visit to Copenhagen. And obviously, do not miss to see Tivoli Gardens.
For a relatively small city, Oslo is remarkably well endowed with museums and art galleries. The downtown is extremely compact, retains much of medieval appearance and is filled with parks and greenery. At a short distance from the center there is an air of pleasant neighborhoods for walking or shopping. Aker Brygge is the recently modernized port and located near the city center. With plenty of shops and bars and restaurants on the waterfront, Oslo is a beautiful area to visit.
Many holidays in Europe are spent visiting different sites outside the city. In planning for these holidays, the number one priority is given to the cost benefit factor. In this consideration, holiday planners consider where they would best get value for their money as this involves traveling away from home for days. Holidays are also best spent in a good climatic environment with the surrounding being pleasant and visitor friendly. Nobody wants to visit a dull place with unfriendly people. People save up a lot of money some even take up loans just to go for a holiday away from the city hustle. It is therefore crucial that cost benefit analysis is done to grant customers satisfaction.
For Latvia which is in Eastern Europe, visitors from around the world can enjoy a lot that this place has to over them. For one, a typical family holiday in Latvia would cost fairly cheap than in other parts of Europe.
Iceland is a large island in the North Atlantic near the Arctic Circle, characterized by a wild and colorful landscape, black lava, red sulfur, blue geysers, waterfalls and green valleys and coastline is indented by numerous bays and fjords. If you are interested in nature, then Iceland is the perfect destination. In summer, many companies offer guided bus tours all over the country for convenient Iceland vacations. You can also go hiking on your own, such as areas near Thorsmoerk, Snaefellsjoekull and more. Another alternative is the horseback rides.
Iceland is one of the most active countries in terms of volcanic activity. Hekla has erupted in the south 16 times, as described by priests as “the gateway to hell.” In coastal regions, however, civilization reigns, especially in the capital Reykjavik, where over half the population lives. Reykjavik is located in a bay surrounded by mountains and hot springs is an area that creates a natural and environmentally friendly heating system.
