This week’s silliest Scandinavian towns

Posted by | Fun stuff, Scandi Life

There is a quaint little town in Denmark whose name always make the Swedes and the Norwegians snigger: Bøgballe. Why? Because if you translate it, it means Gay Balls.

Sweden is not without its own funky towns, however: Fancy a trip to Fjuckby this summer, perhaps? Or how about a day trip to Rövhålet, which literally translated means “Butthole”?

Outside Gothenburg one can enjoy a swim in any of the Yellow, Small or Big Arse lakes (Gula Röven, Lilla Röven, Stora Röven).

In Norway, you can visit the town of Hell – and in Denmark you can enjoy a sunny day in Middelfart.
