Stockholm, Copenhagen, or Helsinki - which one?

Jump to last reply

I will be in Stockholm in late August on business. Based on the flights I can find right now, it is cheaper to stay over the weekend and fly out on Sunday than to leave on Friday (even counting the 2 extra hotel nights).

I could stay in Stockholm, or I could go to Copenhagen or to Helsinki. It is essentially the same price for travel back to the US from the 3 cities, and tickets to CPH and HEL are less than $100. I have never been to any of those three cities.

I am not considering any other cities - I have been to Norway (so not Oslo, Bergen, etc. this trip), and other cities besides Stockholm, Copenhagen, or Helsinki involve higher ticket prices.

As for what I like - history, architecture, natural scenery, walking, local color and flavor.

So - given all that, should I stay in Stockholm an extra couple of days, or should I try to visit one of the other cities for the weekend? I have time for only one of the three, as I have meetings in the US I must return for.
