I am looking at traveling after graduating uni and have never made it up to Scandinavia. Can anyone tell me about living, working, etc. in say Stockholm and other fun cities to live in?

Oslo is a great city, provided you can find a decent paying job (quite hard if you don't speak Norwegian unfortunately!). One of the great things about this place is the warm summers (yes, it's true) and being right on the water, combined with the ability to ski/snowboard in the winter within just 20 minutes drive from the harbour (basically still in the city borders). There's not many major cities around the world that offer that....

On the downside, everything is DARN expensive. Oslo in fact just passed Tokyo as the most expensive city in the world :(

Stockholm is very very nice too.... and a little cheaper

Hello!!!
Ive only personally been to Norway but I loved it!!!!I was visiting friends over there and whilst there we visited, Oslo, Bergen, Stavanger and a place called Saltness. Its a really lovely coutry but bear in mind its very expensive so be prepared to pay a lot for drinks, meal etc....My friend who is from the UK just moved over there as part of his contract over here and hes finding it great and theres something about him being exempt from tax so thats working well in his favour!!!!so maybe look into that!!!

You should visit Helsinki,Finland.It has got the great nightlife,heaps of things to see and the finnish people ain't that bad either.It only takes about 14 hours by ferry from Stockholm to Helsinki!

Welcome to Finland!

Cheers,Minna

Copenhagen or århus in Denmark are nice places to live. Århus is very good for cultural activities such as music, art and theatre. Denmark is a bit cheaper to live in than norway and sweden as well, but has got easy acces to both countries... ferry, bridges and flights.
