Copenhagen, Stockholm, and Helsinki – how easy to navigate each for a day?

Jump to last reply

We took advantage of great prices to book a Baltic cruise for the first two weeks of August. Unfortunately, I’m having an unexpected surgery on my abdomen next week. Doctor has cleared me medically to make the trip but raised the issue that I’ll be dealing with fatigue for several weeks after as the anesthesia works it way out of my system and my body adjusts to the changes due to the surgery.

Again, medically zero risk of making the trip. We will be in these cities for about 8 hours each and had not planned on taking any of the cruise sponsored excursions but on visiting some of the major highlights on our own.

I’m in my mid-40’s, reasonably fit (with one notable exception), and a fairly experienced traveler. Also, I live in the New York area so quite comfortable in a city environment.

I know the cities are all reasonably compact and relatively flat. But, guidebooks are one thing, personal experience is another. So, how easy is it to get around by foot or to use public transportation when you don’t speak their language?

Thanks
