    Since 1909, the Little Mermaid has been welcoming visitors to the charming royal city, with attractions ranging from Tivoli Gardens amusement park to Amalienborg Palace. If you find yourself outside the gates at 12.00 hrs, you might be lucky enough to see the traditional changing of the guard. Alternatively, you can relax in one of the idyllic cafes along the canals of Christianshavn. A boat trip* takes you along the city’s numerous waterways – and on the way, you can look out over the harbour from the first floor of the Royal Opera House.

    St. Petersburg/Russia, arrival 8.00 hrs

    St. Petersburg/Russia
    The impressive Winter Palace, the imposing Nevsky Prospect and the huge collection of art in the Hermitage* – the city of the tsars is simply too magnificent for just a short visit. You will have two days to explore the capital of the Russian empire via its most beautiful routes. Take a canal trip to St Isaac’s Cathedral* and take in fabulous impressions of baroque palaces and gardens. Visit the tsarina’s favourite palace in Pushkin: since 2003, the blue-and-white facade of Catherine Palace* has concealed the extensively restored Amber Room*. In the heart of the Peter and Paul Fortress*, the Cathedral of St Peter and St Paul is the last resting place of the tsars with the gilded icons, marble pillars and painted ceilings lending it an almost celestial feel. Peterhof* is just as extravagant. The sprawling park with its Grand Cascade and Samson Fountain invites visitors to dream – walk in the footsteps of the tsars to the banks of the Gulf of Finland.

    Hundreds of canals, countless bays and more than 50 bridges provide the backdrop to the endearing capital by the water. The royal family has lived on one of the 14 islands since the 16th century: on a visit to the “Queen’s island”, go behind the baroque facade of Drottningholm Palace* to wander through richly decorated rooms and marvel at the palace theatre before enjoying some royal relaxation in the sprawling park and taking a trip on Lake Maelar. A city tour with a difference will take you to great heights: armed with safety equipment, you will take to the roof of the Parliament building* to enjoy once-in-a-lifetime views. To enjoy Stockholm’s fascinating setting to the full, make sure to plan a trip through the skerry landscape.

    Golf cruise – the Baltic’s most beautiful greens

    Fri 8 Jul Copenhagen, Denmark – Kokkedal Golf Club
    This 18-hole course is not far from Copenhagen. The fairways on this parkland course, situated on a former agricultural site, have been played since 1980. The open fairways promise an enjoyable round of golf and few turnovers.

    Sun 10 Jul Riga, Latvia – Ozo Golf Club
    One of Latvia’s few golf courses offers an international standard of play. The wide fairways allow players of all handicaps to attain a good score. A course with a high fun factor!

    Tue 12 Jul Tallinn, Estonia – Estonian Golf Club (Additional course 1)
    This club has an 18-hole sea course and a 9-hole stone course. The 18-hole course, whose fairways are arranged in aisles through a forest structure, is named for its eight strategically placed lakes.

    Fri 15 Jul Helsinki, Finland – Talma Golf Club
    Finland’s model golf club has two 18-hole parkland-style courses offering great play.

    Sat 16 Jul Stockholm, Sweden – Bro Hof Slott Golf Club
    This 36-hole course is a symphony of wide fairways and numerous bodies of water. Situated directly on the Swedish archipelago, the two 18-hole courses stretch across rocky terrain. The possibility of making contact with the water is increased dramatically by 11 lakes around the course in place of the rough.

    Mon 18 Jul Gdansk, Poland – Sierra Golf Club
    This golf course is located on the edge of a forest in the country’s heartland and offers a fair and very playable layout. The open fairways ensure a straightforward golf experience.

    Tue 19 Jul Heringsdorf, Germany – Baltic Hills Golf Club (Additional course 2)
    Reaching the second fairway, players encounter the course’s greatest challenge: the “Fisherman’s Bend”, a par 4 between forest and water, requires more than just skill. In fact, the narrow fairway makes it more like a par 4.5!
