One can apply for a Schengen visa from an embassy or consulate of the main destination country. If the main destination is difficult to define, the application must be submitted to an embassy/consulate of the country where one will stay the longest period of time. If the stay is as long in every country, the application must be submitted to the embassy/consulate of the first destination country.
