If you are planning to take a break before the end of May 2017 why not explore some of the Nordic destinations?
When in Stockholm start with a visit to City Hall, a beautiful building where the Nobel Banquet is held every year and from the tower you get a wonderful view of the entire city.
Go to Gamla Stan, Stockholm’s oldest district and one of the best-preserved medieval city centres in the world. Walk through the winding streets lined with stores full of handicrafts, antiques and art galleries. Stop at a cozy café. The Royal Palace and Stockholm Cathedral are also in Gamla Stan.
Experience Stockholm from the water and hop aboard a sightseeing boat and let it take you for a tour. To get a cultural injection, don’t miss the Vasa Museum on the green island of Djurgården and the Abba Museum close by. For dinner, take the Djurgården ferry to Slussen and Södermalm where you´ll find a great selection of restaurants.
Stockholm has 16 museums with free entry including The Swedish History Museum, The Medieval Museum, Army Museum, The National Maritime Museum, Architecture and Design Centre (ArkDes).
In Copenhagen a visit to Tivoli Gardens amusement park is a must for all visitors to the city, young and old. Tivoli is located just a few minutes’ walk from City Hall, and Copenhagen Central Station as its nearest access.
At Langelinje Pier you will find one of Copenhagen’s most famous tourist attractions: The sculpture of The Little Mermaid.
Kronborg Castle is probably the most famous Danish castle, known worldwide from Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
Christiansborg Palace, located on the tiny island of Slotsholmen, contains the Danish Parliament Folketinget, the Supreme Court, and the Ministry of State.
