Stockholm in one day: what to see?

Scandinavia Valaam Island – and just one day to Stockholm? Like any capital, it is impossible to explore the whole city in one day. But don’t be discouraged: here are a few tips on how not to miss the most important thing on your first trip.

From November 1 to the end of December, Finnish shops, contrary to their usual routines, operate on Sundays.

In fact, there are many such places on our planet. These are special areas where, in one way or another, the presence of strong energy was recorded that has a beneficial or not very effect on a person, therefore the energy and its radiating place have a certain aura of supernaturalness. These are places where miracles and simply inexplicable things happen, where you can become exceptionally good or inexplicably bad and sad.
