A Baltic Summer Itinerary

Day 1 - Stockholm (Sweden)

Embark ship in Stockholm.

Day 2 - Tallinn (Estonia)

A very attractive Baltic capital city, that is renowned for its friendliness and the welcome it provides for visitors. Estonia is now a modern forward thinking country but with a great pride in its history. Tallinn has a well-preserved medieval quarter, impressive fortified city walls and it is a delight to visit the quaintly named Long Leg Street or Tall Hermann, a 14th-century watchtower.

Day 3 - Helsinki (Finland)

Helsinki blends traditional and modern architecture with the beauty of nature. The city is home to the famous Rock Church and Sibelius Monument.

Days 4-5 - St Petersburg (Russia)

Enjoy an overnight stay in the cultural city of St Petersburg, from where there is the opportunity to visit the Hermitage, one of the world's largest museums, Peterhof Palace with its lavish gardens and majestic fountains, and St Isaac's Cathedral.

Day 6 - At sea

Enjoy the ship's facilities on a relaxing day at sea.

Day 7 - Riga (Latvia)

Located on the mouth of the River Daugava, Riga is Latvia's lively capital city. This historic centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and boasts an array of architectural styles. Perhaps explore the history of Latvia at an open-air museum, walk through the Kemeri National Park or enjoy a guided tour of Old Town Riga followed by a monumental pipe organ concert.

Day 8 - Klaipeda (Lithuania)

Walk the cobblestoned Old Town in Klaipėda and you’ll see its German heritage in the architecture, beginning at Theatre Square where Hitler once spoke. The old warehouses by the Dane River are now pubs and restaurants. Other sites to see include Memelburg Castle, the Ethnographic Fisherman’s Farmstead, and the quaint village of Palanga.

Day 9 - Gdansk (Poland)

The 1,000-year-old port city of Gdańsk was mostly destroyed during WWII, but there are still many impressive sights. Wander through cobblestone streets and mazes of red-brick buildings to discover the Upland Gate, St. Mary’s Church, the medieval Gdańsk Crane, the Great Arsenal, and the Amber Museum and National Museum. During your time here, there is a special AzAmazing event - a Classical Concert at the Poland Baltic Philharmonic.

Day 10 - Ronne (Denmark)

The island of Bornholm boasts numerous picturesque fishing villages and 15 medieval churches, some of which are 12th century round structures with unique artwork and architecture. Take a stroll down quiet cobbled lanes in the old part of the capital, Ronne.

Day 11 - Kiel Canal (Germany)

This is the world's busiest artificial waterway, linking the North Sea with the Baltic. Operating since 1895, it was widened to accommodate larger vessels in early 20th century. Still narrow enough to keep ships close to shore, and with no locks, it's basically a gentle cruise through the backyards and gardens of local folk, whom you may see riding their bicycles or picnicking on a fine afternoon.

Days 12-13 - Amsterdam (Holland)

With more canals than Venice, Amsterdam is a winding wonder of waterways just waiting to be explored. Whether by boat or by foot, learn about the city's past inhabitants such as Rembrandt, Van Gogh, and Anne Frank. You'll soon discover there's so much more to Amsterdam than windmills and wooden shoes.
