Helsinki is regarded by many as having the world’s best quality of life. This green metropolis spreads across numerous islands along Finland’s southern coast. An ideal way to travel is by Jopo through the city’s numerous bicycle lanes along the waterfront, past the Sibelius Monument, and into Market Square.
Day 4: St. Petersburg
St Petersburg Russia’s “Cultural Capital” is home to world’s second largest museum The Hermitage and of course when here you cannot miss out on seeing a Russian Ballet performance live or go to Catherine Palace to see first-hand the opulence that the Romanovs lived in, and what stay in Russia would be complete without a famous nesting doll.

The atmospheric medieval streets and spires of the Old Town blend with modern restaurants, cafés and nightclubs. Boutiques showcasing the best of modern Estonian designers, combined with the city’s artisan traditions, make Tallinn a great place to shop. The city is small enough to explore on foot, and the breezy café culture offers a welcome break for tired travellers.
Day 8: Stockholm

Built where the Baltic Sea meets with Lake Mälaren, Stocklholm offers sparkling clear water, medieval old towns, cutting edge fashion and shops, an array of museums and galleries and friendly cafes and restaurants.
