The Baltic Conference Series (BCS) offers not only an unmatched platform for knowledge sharing in the scientific community but also provides an amazing experience of a cruise, on the Baltic sea, with guided tours in the cities of Helsinki & Stockholm.
The extracurricular & social activities at the BCS are organized in such a way that even though the focus always remains on Scientific Knowledge Enrichment, the overall experience ends up delivering more than just that. All this, thanks to the meticulously planned cruise experience and the visits to some of the most famous places and monuments of Helsinki & Stockholm for the explorer in you. Owing to all these activities, the Congress delivers an unprecedented conference program to its delegates.
THE BALTIC SEA
As the cruise travels back and forth between Stockholm and Helsinki, the journey provides mesmerizing views of the Baltic Sea, which is the youngest sea of our planet.
The unique location, age, and shallow depth of the Baltic Sea have collectively rendered it a special characteristic of being a habitat of both freshwater and marine species. While on the cruise, you get to enjoy a beautiful view of the Baltic Sea and its rich natural habitat and geography of more than 30,000 islands, islets, and rocks and at the same time, enrich your insights and networking base at the Congress, truly realizing our aim of “Knowledge Experience at Sea”.
GLOBAL CULTURAL EXCHANGE ON-BOARD
The journey on the cruise enriches your cultural outlook by giving you exposure to Scandinavian food, music, dance forms, and enabling your interaction with people from different communities. The amazing experience of cruise hospitality consists of an amazing food menu that includes exclusive Scandinavian delicacies, special concerts highlighting the modern and historical musical heritage of the region, and interaction among delegates from all across the globe. These experiences allow you to take a break from the highly intellectual discussions and lighten up your mood so that you can truly enjoy the experience of the cruise journey.
The BCS program includes guided tours in Helsinki; also known as the “Daughter of the Baltic” & “white city of the north” as the majority of the buildings in the city have been built with light-colored granite. The world’s coldest capital Helsinki comprises more than 300 islands connected by many bridges and is home to some of the most renowned and historical places and monuments in Finland. The guided tours consist of a trip to dozens of interesting museums and countless sights showcasing the historical importance and cultural significance of the city. The trip includes visits to the most interesting locations such as the Senate Square, the Sibelius Monument, Ateneum Art Museum, Market Square, Rock Church, Botanic Garden, Olympic Stadium, Helsinki Lutheran & Uspenski Orthodox Cathedrals. The trip takes about two hours and brings back delegates to the cruise with a rejuvenated understanding of history.
Upon returning, the delegates get a trip to some of the most renowned places and historical monuments in Stockholm, the Nobel City, which is also home to more than 100 museums. During the guided tour, you will explore places like the Stockholm City Hall, The Royal Palace, Gamla Stan (one of the oldest towns), and the Royal Djurgården. Stockholm, with over 30% area made up of waterways and another 30% of parks and green spaces, is world-famous for being stunningly picturesque.
