October began in Gdansk for all three of us, and we’ll get back to this fascinating city on the Baltic soon enough. Along with Copenhagen, Gdansk proved a popular subject from the iPhone lens last month; and just like in September, the cityscape of Gdansk was the best liked ‘gram of the month. Here are the 10 most popular photos in our Instagram gallery from October.
1. Gdansk, Poland

Copenhagen's iconic 17th century Round Tower, an astronomical observatory. This photo is the spiral 7.5-turn corridor taking me to the observation deck on top. It's quite wide, enough to drive a small car up here, made with horses in mind, perhaps… Very cool. It seems to be irresistible for kids to run down it. The acoustics make the little ones sound like elephants.
Having a look at the fabulous Rundetårn (Round Tower).
7. Copenhagen, Denmark
Tivoli Gardens, all decked out for Halloween.
8. Copenhagen, Denmark
It is a picturesque city, isn’t it, Copenhagen? This is one of the lions by Rosenholm Palace.
9. Oslo, Norway
The hop-on hop-off old wooden sail ship that takes you around Oslo harbour. Especially recommended on a wintry day when snow is falling.

St Mary’s Church, an open door
B. Vollen, Norway
A lovely little cove at Vollen, just 20 minutes from Oslo.
