Winter is upon us and that means the scenery is changing. For some this might just mean a lot of cold wind and rain, but for those lucky ones who gets snowfall in the winter it means that everything around you is getting covered in a white fluffy blanket. Sure, it’s a blanket made of frozen water and it’s freaking cold outside, but hey, it looks beautiful. So let’s take a look at how some places around the world look before and after winter starts. It’s quite a magical transformation.
1. Natadera Temple, Komatsu, Japan
The bright colors look so much more vivid in the snow. That red and gold design is just calling for you to walk in.
2. Neuschwanstein Castle, Schwangau, Germany
It really does look like something out of a fairytale.
3. Yosemite National Park, California, USA.
Just like that desktop background on your Macbook, am I right?
4. Bryce Canyon’s Bridge, Utah, USA
Isn’t it awesome how it looks even more orange under the snow?
5. Radhost Mountain, Czech Republic
It looks like it’s actually made of snow!

Frighteningly beautiful scenery right there.
7. Church of the Good Shepard, Lake Tekapo, New Zealand
Looks like a great place to chill and get some peace of mind.

Iceland is just a magical country. It looks surreal year round.
10. Hallstatt Village, Austria
That has got to be on their Christmas postcards. Those could be gingerbread houses.

Doesn’t this picture just make you want to pack your stuff and move to Norway? You could witness this beauty all day long.
12. Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, London, UK
It doesn’t snow that often in London, but when it does, you almost feel like you’re in Hogwarts.
13. St Basil’s Church, Red Square, Moscow, Russia
It looks even more like it’s made of candy in the winter, right? Like that snow is just icing on top.
14. The historic village of Shirakawa-Go, Japan
It’s hard to believe that is an actual village, it looks like it might be an adorable tiny toy village.

Those little red houses look so festive in the snow. Now if only they added some fairy lights, it would look like a winter wonderland.
