Scandinavia Standard is your one-stop destination for Scandinavian lifestyle in English. Whether you’re a local, immigrant, visitor or simply a scandiphile, you should get to live an enriched life in the city of your choice. And if you can’t get on a plane? No problem! We’re bringing all the Scandi-goods to you online, so you can enjoy Scandinavia wherever you are.

Our motto is simple:
We live here. We chose to live here.

Scandinavia Standard’s goal isn’t to make its own isolated community but instead to provide our readers with the knowledge and desire to access the city they’re in, now.

We aren’t about bashing Scandinavia (or anywhere else). We’re about positivity. We believe it’s possible to be critical without being nasty.

Welcome to Scandinavia Standard!
