    Faroe islands, spitbergen, northern norway, sweden and finland.

    But

    You clearly have zero knowledge on the subject of astronomy so let me redpill you: all those sparkling fancy images of galaxies are taken with a high saturation lens, the human eye cannot see it bright like that.
    It does look cool without light pollution on a clear night sky but it's more like a line of white dust in the sky

    Tl;dr: you can't, not even in outer space because of camera lenses

      I had some good views of the stars in rural areas of Poland and Romania, obviously more like but still very impressive.
      You will definitely need a car or be prepared to hike and camp though.

    Norway, Sweden and Iceland seems to be your best bets. The Femundsmarka national park in Norway is only a four hour drive from Gardermoen and is apparently completely free from light pollution. Keep in mind that the further north in Europe you go in summer, the longer the days are, and you might not be able to see much of the night sky. Even southern Norway, which doesn't have midnight sun, will have very short nights with perpetual dawn. Going in winter has its own set of challenges, but it's your best chance at a clear night sky.

      I lived in Iceland for a bit.
      outside of reykjavik and akurary its easy to have minimal Light polution. However as this anon said during the Summer the sun doesn't set. After Summer weather and cloud cover can shift a lot.
      So i suggest going in spring or october and keeping this webpage open.
      https://en.vedur.is/
      It shows weather, cloud cover and northern Lights as well (if you want to try in winter)

      Jesus Christ why is Finland worse than any western US state.
      And yeah nordic countries will probably be too far north to see things in the summer and have too much humidity and cloudy weather. Morocco might be the best place close to europe. There's a reason observatories are all in desert climate mountains at mid latitudes. Best skies I've ever seen were in Colorado.

    Bardsey Island, Wales. Darkest place in Europe. Pain in the arse to get to. It’s where Merlin is buried.

    Galloway Forest Park in Scotland is also good, slightly easier to get to

    As anon says the Milky Way by eye is staggering but won’t match high effort astrophotography
