Copenhagen is situated on the eastern coast of the island of Zealand; another small portion of the city is located on Amager, and is separated from Malmö, Sweden, by the strait of Oresund. The Oresund Bridge connects the two cities by rail and road. Originally a Viking fishing village founded in the 10th century, Copenhagen became the capital of Denmark in the early 15th century. Beginning in the 17th century it consolidated its position as a regional centre of power with its institutions, defences and armed forces. After suffering from the effects of plague and fire in the 18th century, the city underwent a period of redevelopment. This included construction of the prestigious district of Frederiksstaden and founding of such cultural institutions as the Royal Theatre and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. The city is the cultural, economic and governmental centre of Denmark; it is one of the major financial centres of Northern Europe with the Copenhagen Stock Exchange. Overnight at hotel.

The original site of Oslo was east of the Aker River. The growth of Christiania’s population in the 19th century was due in part to the absorption of surrounding municipalities, and the city replaced its rival, the west-coast port of Bergen, as Norway’s largest and most influential city. The city was renamed Oslo in 1925 and developed rapidly after World War II. Overnight at hotel.

The capitals of Finland and Sweden are well connected by passenger ferry services. The distance between Stockholm and Helsinki is approximately 250 miles or 400km, making it a nice overnight trip. It is very common to visit Helsinki from Stockholm over the weekend. Many Finnish and Swedish people alike enjoy ferries, particularly for the opportunity to shop duty-free / tax-free onboard.
