  The 'wonder' road sign, Scandinavia
by evaanna

Anybody who has been to Scandinavia knows the characteristic black signs against blue or white background (see the picture) by the road. These are supposed to indicate natural or man-made wonders and often do, especially if the name of the attraction is given too. In some cases, however, obeying the sign you take a detour of a few kilometres just to discover the sign pointed to nothing more than a small private zoo or a millstone or something equally uninteresting.

Unique Suggestions: If you have a definite plan of your journey don't let these signs seduce you, not too often anyway. Find out about the local attractions in advance - this will help you take your decision.
