Discover the Baltic From only £1,399 per person Riga, Latvia Home to historic castles, beautiful churches and houses inspired by a diverse range of architectural styles, Riga is one of the area’s must-visit destinations. Wonder at the iconic Freedom Monument, a superb photo opportunity; explore Town Hall Square; sample the Latvian tipple – Black Balsam – and some local culinary specialities; or tour to the beach resort of Jūrmala. Warnemünde, Germany As well as offering convenient links to Rostock and Berlin, you’ll find this everpopular seaside resort has plenty more attractions. Take a stroll down the Alter Strom (Old River); unwind on the wide, white-sand beaches or in a traditional pub or two; sample some delicious local seafood; and don’t miss the view from atop Warnemünde Lighthouse. «RECOMMENDED EXPERIENCE Explore the main sights of Germany’s capital city, including Checkpoint Charlie, the Reichstag, Alexander Platz Square, Tiergarten Park, the Brandenburg Gate and remnants of the Berlin Wall. Cruising the Kiel Canal Take in the charming German countryside along what is said to be the world’s busiest man-made waterway, the Kiel Canal. At almost 100 kilometres long it links the North Sea with the Baltic. Only smaller ships are able to navigate it. Copenhagen, Denmark Copenhagen has something for everyone, from the imposing Christiansborg and Amalienborg palaces to the vibrant cafés and shopping outlets lining the pedestrianised 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. Tallinn, Estonia Tallinn appears like a fairytale wonderland, with its UNESCO-listed Old Town, picturesque churches and cobbled streets. The oldest part is the medieval Toompea Hill; remains of the city wall can be viewed here. Other highlights include the striking Alexander Nevskij Cathedral, Kadriorg Palace and the Kumu Art Museum. 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. «RECOMMENDED EXPERIENCE Join our ‘Everyday St. Petersburg’ tour to absorb some of the city’s many highlights, from majestic cathedrals to the richlydecorated Metro stations. The highlight for me had to be St. Petersburg, which is rich in history and culture. The stop in Warnemünde was also well worth the visit. independent customer reviews For adult travellers only This cruise is for guests aged 18 and above only.
