16 Curious Images Explain Why The Scandinavian Countries Are Unique And Special Places

There are places in the world capable of evoking precise images in the mind. Landscapes, buildings, natural phenomena, and – why not – curiosities: so many characteristics that make a nation or an entire region of the globe unique.
