Around the Gulf of Finland Tour.

Every time I come to Tallinn I feel very excited. It's a feeling that hasn't changed despite the fact that I have been here many times before. It seems that Tallinn (and Estonia in general) always has a way to find new and exciting ways to surprise you. In the summer the streets of the old town are buzzing with activity. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants with very original foods and drinks in offer.

One day you can have a taste of authentic medieval food. The next you can adventure into the realms of contemporary food, or even better, treat yourself with a visit to some of the haute cuisine restaurants in the country.

But enough of Tallinn, how about Helsinki? Well, they call it the capital of design for a reason. Finns have a great taste and wherever you go you'll find examples of exquisite Finnish and Scandinavian designs. Helsinki is a city vibrant with a kind young enthusiasm and that permeates to all levels of life here. Finns are gloriously crazy and gorgeously honest. They are people of few words, but they make sure that whatever they say is something that matters.

Peterhof Palace in St. Petersburg

St. Petersburg is the definition of "over-the-top". Boasting a collection of cathedrals, fortresses and museums, all treated in gold in one way or another, this is without a doubt the most flamboyant city in Europe. If you are fascinated by stories of royalty, there is no better place to be than Russia.
