First, we’re heading to Kiruna, Sweden to celebrate winter at the Snowfestival. Taking place at the latter end of the month, this event offers everything from snow-sculptures to painting exhibitions to children’s playgrounds made entirely out of snow.
Elaborately decorated masks are synonymous with the Venetian Carnival. During this festival well-dressed revelers make their way through the streets to parties that go long into the night. During the day you’ll find plenty of locals dressed up, a scene perfect for taking pictures, as well as stalls selling food, drink and souvenirs.
