NEW YEAR ON THE BALTIC SEA
STOCKHOLM – NEW YEAR MINI-CRUISE - HELSINKI
Come and enjoy the Scandinavian atmosphere during a weekend combining a mini cruise in the Baltic Sea and discovery of two particularly beautiful and fun capital cities:
Stockholm, elegant and dotted with islets and green parks. Take the time to visit the medieval Gamla Stan, with narrow streets lined with stalls; the Town Hall and its high square tower offers a panoramic view of the city; the Royal Castle rich in historical memories; the battleship Vasa, rescued after a stay of more than 300 years in the port; Skansen, the open-air museum of popular arts and traditions ...
Helsinki, one of the smallest capitals in the world. Surrounded by the sea, it is a particularly pleasant city, offering an elegant mix of Scandinavian and Russian influences, visible through the architecture of its monuments. Do not miss the Tuomiokirkko Cathedral, the incredible church carved in stone and the monument to Sibelius reminiscent of a giant organ.
