Copenhagen

Copenhagen is the capital and largest city of Denmark is a major regional centre of culture, business, media and science. It has also been repeatedly recognized as one of the cities with the best quality of life and one of the world’s most environmentally friendly cities.

Stockholm

In the centre of Stockholm is Gamla Stan (the Old Town) and the adjacent Riddarholmen – two islands that together make up northern Europe’s largest and best-preserved medieval city core with a history dating back to the 13th century. Gamla Stan is home to the imposing Royal Palace, several beautiful churches, narrow picturesque streets and alleys with an abundance of shops, restaurants, bars and cafés. From Gamla Stan, it is a beautiful walk to charming Fjällgatan Street over in the Södermalm district, which offers stunning views across the city.

St Petersburg

Catherine's Winter Palace (designed by Rastrelli in the 18th century), is the former residence of Russian tsars, and is situated on the Palace Square- one of the most beautiful architectural ensembles in the world.
The Hermitage, with its collection of over 2.5 million exhibits, is one of the very finest art museums in the world.  The Russian Museum contains 3000 paintings (10th - 20th centuries) by Russian artists.

Peterhof or Petrodvorets, once a formal garden built for Peter the Great, is a popular park which has more than 80 of the original marble statues and sculptures and houses Peter's Summer Palace, a simply designed two-story building that now displays many of the ruler's own artefacts.

Tallinn

The fairytale city of Tallinn is an appealing mix of historic and modern, with cobbled streets, medieval churches with numerous restaurants, cafés, and nightclubs within its Old Town walls.  It also boasts a great array of galleries, boutiques and artisan workshops.
