This beautiful Scandinavian city has a remarkable charm to it. It feels a little like other European cities, but not quite. There is something remarkable about the architecture, the culture, the food, and the people. There is something about it that makes it stand out.
Almost all of the buildings look the same until a few jump out and catch your eye. The same goes for the food and the people. There are certain things there that don't quite fit in, but that's what makes the city stand out.
It's the city's history and familiarity that draws us in and makes us fall in the love with one of the happiest cities in the world. It's the few things that are a little off that keep us coming back.
It's okay to be similar to others. Stand on the backs of giants in order to learn your voice and find your place. But if you really want to stand out, don't try to merely fit in. The secret to standing out is in the details. Small changes and minute nuances are rarely noticed but always felt. Take the Nike swoosh or Apple's clean packaging. Consider Google's simple interface or Amazon's customer support. It's the small things that make organizations, people, stuff, and cities great.
