Gdańsk (Danzig in German) is a port city on the Baltic coast of Poland. At the center of its Main Town, reconstructed after WWII, are the colorful facades of Long Market, now home to shops and restaurants. Nearby is Neptune Fountain, a 17th-century symbol of the city topped by a bronze statue of the sea god.

Location Visby
In
Out

Today a thriving holiday resort, Visby on the Baltic island of Gotland has become famous as ‘the town of roses and ruins’ – a living relic of a medieval heyday when this Hanseatic port vied in riches and fame with the great capitals of ancient Europe. Now its narrow cobbled streets and ruined churches slumber on behind the two and a half mile 13th century city wall, a haunting monument to a lost glory.

Location Riga
In
Out

Now triumphantly reasserting its proud Baltic heritage after the return of Latvia’s independence, this ancient Hanseatic river-port is the largest city of the Baltic States and a striking showcase for the country’s rich culture. At its heart lies the now masterfully restored Old Riga, with its cobbled pedestrian streets, the towers and spires of medieval churches and venerable facades of gabled 17th century German merchants’ homes.

Location Saaremaa Isl. Estonia
In
Out

Located in the centre of the Baltic Sea, Estonia’s largest island revels in its isolation. The territory has been inhabited for over 8,000 years, but stone-walled house with their thatched roofs give this island a unique character. Amongst the numerous sights are Angla Windmill Hill; Mustjala cliff; the 17th century Bell Tower at Kihelkonna; the manor house at Loona; the ruins of Maasi Castle; and the Mihkli Fram Museum at Viki.

Location Tallinn
In
Out

Tallinn, Estonia’s capital on the Baltic Sea, is unquestionably one of Europe’s most magical capitals. This ancient Hanseatic city is justifiably proud of its beautiful churches, solid limestone houses and well-preserved cobbled streets.

Toompea Hill, with its medieval houses and alleyways, is the oldest part, and at its foot substantial remains of the city wall can still be seen, surrounded by well-maintained parks. The medieval town hall is one of the best preserved in northern Europe, and the weathercock, Gamle Toomas, is an enduring symbol of Tallinn.

The astonishing, ornate, 19th century Alexander Nevskij Cathedral was built when Estonia was part of Tsarist Russia. Kadriorg’s Castle was built by an earlier Tsar, Peter the Great, and now houses part of the Estonian Museum of Art. The “Peek into the Kitchen” tower has an exhibition of Tallinn’s military history.

Location Stockholm
In
Out

Sweden’s beautiful capital owes much of its appeal to its unique location. Spread across 14 islands at the head of a vast archipelago that stretches out into the Baltic, Stockholm’s swathe of parks, gardens and canals are a joy to discover via the city’s large network of bridges.

Founded over 700 years ago, the city’s harbour is the epitome of elegance and Stockholm’s history is writ large across its wide boulevards. Gamla Stan, Stockholm’s charming Old Town district, is home to historic, ochre-coloured buildings and monuments. Dating back to the 13th century, the island is surrounded by water and offers beautiful waterfront views. Along its divine cobbled streets, the 13th century Storkyrkan Cathedral, the gorgeous Riddarholm Church and the Nobel Prize Museum can all be found and appreciated.Show less
The choice of museums is extensive and includes the Vasa Maritime Museum, the unique Skansen Open Air Museum and of course, the ABBA Museum. The stunning Royal Palace and the Drottningholm Palace are also well worth seeing.

The vibrant Norrmalm and Östermalm districts in the city centre are ideal for those looking for a more modern cultural experience. Here, an array of upmarket shops sell goods from globally-known brands, and there are trendy cafes next to the Science and Technology Museum. Stockholm’s beauty and fashion sense are legendary, and its no-fuss functional, minimalistic approach to style provides the city with an unmistakable look.

Given its bountiful seas and farmland, Stockholm is a city of foodies and food trends. From açai breakfast bowls to truffle cheeseburgers, trying the cuisine is an exploration all of its own. Traditional Swedish cooking still holds its own, though: fried herring, meatballs and toast skagen remain menu classics.

Location Copenhagen

With its vibrant atmosphere, modern culture and beautiful architecture, Copenhagen is the essence of Scandinavian cool. One of Europe’s oldest and most popular cities, Copenhagen is also one of the cleanest and most cosmopolitan. Its narrow streets are always busy with welcoming locals and are lined with colourful cafes, bars, shops and places to eat. Its bridges ring with cycling commuters and the pristine waterways make visiting this city a wonderful experience.

The historic centre of Denmark’s capital, an 18th-century rococo district, is home to the Royal Family’s Amalienborg Palace, Christiansborg Palace and Rosenborg Castle, surrounded by beautiful gardens and is the home of the Danish crown jewels. The Little Mermaid sculpture at Langelinje Pier is a must-visit attraction too.

Take a wander through pretty Nyhavn – Copenhagen’s 17th century waterfront and canal district – and you’ll revel postcard-perfect scenes of historic wooden ships set to a backdrop of brightly coloured 17th and 18th century townhouses, many of which have been converted into bars and restaurants.
