Best of 2017: The Ten Most Read Scandinavia Standard Articles

We feel lucky that we get to write about all the Scandinavian things we discover and love. Turns out, you like them too! While looking through our analytics (yes, we do boring stuff too) to see which articles performed best, we learned that food is always a winner (pastries and burgers and beers, oh my!) and that everyone in Scandinavia needs a raincoat. We can’t say we’re surprised. Get ready for even more Scandi treats, including our launch in Helsinki, in 2018! Thank you for reading along, and thanks for being you.

These are the articles that you clicked on most this year:
