Scandinavian Waterways & St. Petersburg 24th June 2017 • 14 nights • Sails from Southampton • Braemar • CRUISE ID: M1715 Uncovering Sweden’s fjords is the perfect start to this wonderful journey, which features two capital cities, an overnight stay in mighty St. Petersburg, the Kiel Canal, UNESCO-listed Visby, and much more besides. You’ll be spoilt for choice for highlights: Tallinn’s Old Town, the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen and the unmistakable Hermitage Museum streets of Strøget – not forgetting Nyhavn, the pretty waterfront district too. And of course, no visit here would be complete without a photo stop at the iconic Little Mermaid statue. «RECOMMENDED EXPERIENCE Enjoy a leisurely, laid-back tour of Copenhagen’s canals and harbour, passing many of this attractive city’s most famous sights along the way. Visby, Gotland, Sweden You’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time as you discover the curious, UNESCO-listed town of Visby, a living museum of wellpreserved ruins, medieval streets and merchants’ houses hidden behind 13th century city walls. Explore the beautiful Botanical Gardens; admire the tri-towered St. Mary’s Cathedral; or venture to the quaint fishing village of Lickershamn, where you can savour Gotland’s tallest sea stack, Jungfrun (‘The Maiden’). St. Petersburg, Russia A culture-rich, lavish and stylish city, many visitors fall in love with St. Petersburg. Among the elegant streets and curving canals, the overwhelming beauty extends from the unmistakable structures of Peterhof Palace, the Hermitage Museum and the Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, to the worldfamous jewelled eggs on display at the Fabergé Museum. From only £1,699 per person all feature on the ‘must-see’ list. Cruising Swedish Fjords The spellbinding fjords of Sweden have beauty in abundance, despite perhaps not being as well-known as those from neighbouring Norway. Make sure you’re out on deck as rolling hills, lush green fields, woodlands and a scattering of charming villages form a conveyor belt of scenic delights. The tranquil waters flourish with marine species, including cuttlefish, dragonets, gurnard, crabs and shrimp, making them a haven for anglers and naturelovers alike. Aalborg, Denmark Braemar can take you to the heart of this charming city; in the centre you’ll find Aalborghus Castle, along with a selection of fine cafés, galleries and museums. Alternatively, see the Utzon Centre, the last building designed by Sydney Opera Housearchitect Jørn Utzon. Or, tour to Lindholm Hoje and experience a slice of ancient Viking life in this area. Cruising Limfjord The Limfjord is Denmark’s longest fjord. Sit on deck and look out at the undulating valleys, pretty islands and coastal cliffs as you sail along this tranquil waterway. Copenhagen, Denmark Copenhagen has something for everyone, from the imposing Christiansborg and Amalienborg palaces to the vibrant cafés and shopping outlets lining the pedestrianised Visby Limfjord Single friendly: We will always offer an Ocean View Twin Room at a reduced price for sole occupancy.
