How should I approach a trip to Scandinavia? Should I travel around it, or should I just hit one place, like Stockholm or something?
My impression of Scandinavia as a tourist is that it is boring and bland. That it has very few attractions compared to southern European countries and that the culture is pretty generic (well, I would say rational, as in they adhere to rational, progressive values rather than arbitrary traditions). On the other hand, my impression of Scandinavia as a resident is that it is ideal, especially with it’s politics. Of course, I know these are all baseless generalizations that might be rooted in ignorance.
I’m interested in the social-democratic welfare state, and that is why I want to visit. However, as a tourist i don’t know how to access this information. I figure I would just do generic tourist things. idk.
Long story short, is Scandinavia a good place to visit? Where should I go? What should I do? Have you been there?
