Roslagen

Welcome to Roslagen - the Coastal Countryside of Stockholm! Roslagen is the archipelago, the ironworks, small towns and the sea. This gem includes idyllic Öregrund, Grisslehamn and Ljusterö, charming smaller destinations offering everything from fishing and festivals to delicacies and design. In Roslagen's fabulous archipelago, with nearly 13,000 islands, you can enjoy a vibrant archipelago landscape with nature reserves, national parks and authentic archipelago buildings. The region offers plenty of events, all year round. The name Roslagen comes from the word “rodzlag” which in coastal Uppland is an old word for a rowing crew of warrior oarsmen. Roslagen includes the municipalities of Vaxholm, Österåker, Norrtälje and Östhammar.
Antwerp, Belgium

Tasty in Antwerp: Zurenborg

Zurenborg is quite possibly the most beautiful neighbourhood in Antwerp. It flaunts its belle époque grandeur like a coquettish lady. It proudly shows surprised visitors its art nouveau façades, elegant streets and squares. But the highlight is the 19th century Cogels-Osylei: sublime architecture from around the turn of the previous century.

Wellington

The capital city of New Zealand rests between rolling hills and a rugged coastline on the southern tip of the North Island. As well as offering some of the best urban views in New Zealand, the city is popular for its arts and culture. Wellington is home to the National Museum (Te Papa), the national opera and ballet companies, and is the heart of the nation’s film and fashion scenes. With more restaurants and cafés per head than New York, Wellington also offers an unequaled gastronomic experience.
Antwerp, Belgium

Tasty in Antwerp: Theatre Area

The Theatre District owes its name to the many theatres here. This is the working habitat of many directors, actors, dancers and musicians: in the pubs you can almost hear the creativity bubbling away. It’s worth a visit during the day, too, because you’ll find many fashion, antique and interior design shops here, as well as two small but beautiful museums: the Maiden’s House Museum and the Museum Mayer van den Bergh.

Manchester

Today’s Manchester is a far cry from the harsh industrial city of decades past that many still picture. Massive urban redevelopment projects have given the city a new face and reinvigorated its districts, making them cool, cultured and characterful enough to rival even the most hipster of neighbourhoods. ‘The Capital of the North’ is a vibrant cosmopolitan city, with a rich musical history, a passion for sports, plenty of cultural offerings and personality to spare, and visitors will find much to keep them occupied, entertained and even fascinated among the refurbished and repurposed industrial buildings and pleasant canals.
