Russia’s cultural heart has become an increasingly popular stop on Baltic Sea cruises. But with a plethora of enticing places screaming out to be visited, how do you make the best of one or two days there?

But if like me, you are visiting Denmark’s capital as part of a Scandinavia & Baltic Sea cruise itinerary and have only 24 hours or less to discover its treasures, you will need to make some tough choices. To help you make the most of your day in Copenhagen, here are some essential practical tips, including how to get from the cruise terminal, and my pick of what to see and do.
