In my opinion, Scandinavia is home to some of the most efficient and well-designed cities in the world. These cities are often filled with urban treasures ranging from stunning palaces and cathedrals of the past to new, modern architecture that pushes the boundaries of the craft.
Of all the Scandinavian cities I have visited, I connected to Amsterdam in the deepest way. It quickly became one of my favorite cities of all time. Why? It is hard to say, exactly. There are so many reasons to fall in love with this city. For me, Amsterdam simply felt familiar even in the first few moments of visiting.
