Stockholm, Sweden
5:00 PM

The capital of Sweden occupies an archipelago in the east of the country at the junction of Lake Mälar and the Baltic Sea. In Gamla stan, meaning "old town" in Swedish, you can stroll at your leisure in picturesque medieval streets until you reach the majestic Royal Palace. On the green island of Djurgården, you can visit several very different kinds of cultural centres: the Vasa Museum is dedicated to a 17th-century three-mast, the ecomuseum of Skansen presents traditional customs, and the ABBA Museum is dedicated to the legendary pop group. For a fantastic all-encompassing view of Stockholm, you can take a ride in SkyView, a glass-encased sphere gondola that takes you to the top of the world's largest hemispherical building, the Ericsson Globe, a Stockholm landmark.

Seated in the southern peninsula of Finland, Helsinki offers the buzz of a cosmopolitan city that has opted for both elegance and beauty. Explore its historical centre where the soft hues of neoclassical buildings are juxtaposed with spectacular modern constructions. The bustling Kallio district is teeming with boutiques and restaurants where you can taste some local specialities like graavilohi – a sweet marinated aromatic salmon dish. Keskuspuisto park, a stone's throw from the centre, is a good place to sit and unwind.

Founded in 1703 by Peter the Great, Saint Petersburg has kept its original aura and is still one of the world's most beautiful cities. It is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Bathed by the waters of the Neva, the "Venice of the North" boasts an impressive wealth of historic and artistic features. From the emblematic Nevsky Prospect, the city's main thoroughfare, exploring the city by foot is a pleasure. With its Baroque cathedrals, imperial palaces, suspended bridges, theatres, and museums, Saint Petersburg is a jewel of a city. To make the experience even quainter, take a boat ride along the canals though the ancient capital of the czars.

Opening onto the Baltic Sea, to the far north of Estonia, the town of Tallin will win you over with the picturesque charm of its architecture. You can meander through its little streets in the heart of the medieval centre where its Gothic town hall has been standing since 1404. To get a taste of this town's rich past, you can also visit the Kiek in de Kök tower, the Orthodox Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, or Toompea castle. Try some of the local dishes, such as the smoked herring, roast elk, and salmon with wild berries.

Connected to the far eastern side of Zealand island, a few kilometres away from the Swedish coasts, Copenhagen offers you the high colour of Scandinavian capitals. You can discover the city's riches that weaves through the canal networks in the historical districts of Christiansborg and Nyhavn. Many palaces provide an aperçu of Danish history.
