Bathing naked in Stockholm
When the sun rises at 3 p.m. in the summer and the Swedes return home from their nightly entertainment, a swim free of clothes and swimwear is considered perfectly acceptable. Favorites for this are many, considering that Stockholm is made up of more than 14 islands, but the small coves west of the Västerbron Bridge at the edge of the Långholmen and the southern shores of the Kungsholmen at the Norr Mälarstrand are a must in terms of safety. and privacy.

Fjords in Norway
The fjords are essentially synonymous with Norway. These narrow strips of sea, surrounded by rocky hills or cliffs and creating a backdrop from a painting, are a must-see before you die. They were formed thousands of years ago, after the melting of the ice, where the sea water flooded the valleys of the area and in western Norway you will see some of the most famous. The Sognefjord is 204 km long, 1038 km deep and is considered the “king” of all fjords, as it is the longest and deepest in Norway.
Thermal Baths in Budapest
One of the greatest pleasures in the Hungarian capital is definitely its hot springs. These architectural diamonds are located in a labyrinth of saunas, natural hot pools, etc., whose mineral-rich water comes directly from the ground. There are many spas in the city, but Gellert is one of the most famous, as well as Király and Rudas Baths built by 16th century Turks.
Because the things we definitely need to do in Europe are definitely not just these, we will be back with the rest soon.
