Norway sits on the top of Europe, and is marked by a wild and majestic nature. The fjords of the west coast (the narrow inlets that cut through mountains as tall as 1000 meters) are breathtaking. The islands of the north, with mountains rising straight out of the ocean, also offer some experiences to be remembered. Although its cities are not the biggest in size, most have charming areas of old wooden houses on offer. Norway is one of the most expensive countries in the world, but most tourists would agree that it is well worth the visit.

Moscow: Perestroika Power

The sheer size of Moscow can be daunting, to say the least. It outnumbers all other cities in Europe by far, not only by its number of inhabitants but also by distances. Most attractions are inside the 'Garden Ring', including the Kremlin. Together with its Red Square and the Lenin Mausoleum it is one of the most recognizable sights in the world, bringing back memories of both the Cold War and perestroika. This should be the start of any visit to the city.

If one were to sum up the Mediterranean, Malta would be the answer. Its language mixes Arabic and Italian, which is also reflected in its culture and cuisine. The history of the islands is almost as old as time itself, and its capital Valetta is even known as 'one of the most concentrated historic areas in the world'. The area of this island nation is just 316 km², consisting of the three charming islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino. If history gets to you, there are also plenty of beaches made for relaxing.
