Where to go next?

We will be finishing a tour of Denmark, Sweden and Norway in Oslo in July 2014. We are then taking a tour of Russia starting in St petersberg. We have three nights between these tours. If we stay in Oslo for an extra day/night I would be interested in hearing any suggestions for where we should go for the next couple of day.

We were thinking maybe Tallinn or Helsinki but would like some suggestions from people who live in this region or have visited. We will have 2 full days as the first day of our Russian adventure is just an arrival day.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

1. Re: Where to go next?

In two days you could travel with train from Oslo to Stockholm, overnight ferry to Helsinki and train to St. Petersburg. We did this trip in the opposite direction last summer, it was indeed a much more relaxing way to travel compared to flying. It would save you from the nuisance of standing 2h in line for passport control at the slightly chaotic Pulkovo airport.
