Stockholm is a city of great contrasts, where trends within music, design, fashion, and world re-known technology is born. This is also a capital with a rich history, with exciting architecture, museums, castles and an old town that dates from the 13th century.
Stockholm is both urban and close to nature. Being built on 14 islands, where lake and sea meets, the water is always present. There are many parks (such as the Royal Djurgården) and green areas within the city, and just outside the city you’ll find easily accessible nature, with forests, lakes, and national parks. From the central parts of Stockholm, you can jump on a boat and be in the Stockholm archipelago within minutes, all year around.
Finland was ranked the world's safest country in 2017 and the country's capital is getting high praise from visitors for the cleanliness and relaxed atmosphere.
Helsinki is easy to reach with an overnight luxury cruise from Stockholm. Helsinki is a compact city easily explored on foot from your centrally located hotel. Design, architecture, culture and shopping are all great exploration angles and large park areas, forests, lakes, and the coastline with numerous islands sprinkled off it make certain there’s no shortage of natural presence. Needless to say, there’s something going on in Helsinki every day of the year.
