Winter square in St Petersburg, Russia

The Baltic is one of the world's most dynamic regions.

A Baltic cruise is a unique way to discover some of northern Europe's best kept secrets. Discover Estonia's medieval capital, Tallinn; the Art Nouveau buildings, cafés and welcoming locals of Helsinki; Riga's stunning UNESCO-listed Old Town; and Copenhagen's statue of the Little Mermaid, which celebrates the tales of the city's Hans Christian Andersen.

St Petersburg and Stockholm represent two magnificent, must-see destinations. The beautiful capital of Sweden owes much of its unique appeal to its setting on 14 islands of the archipelago that stretches out into the Baltic. [ReadMoreDesk]While the Baltic’s most precious jewel, St Petersburg, is renowned for its baroque palaces along with the spectacular art collection in The Hermitage, Catherine the Great's former private residence. 

Ancient meets modern and contemporary, literally at every turn. The enthralling 17th century fortress city of Fredericia contrasts with the wonder of LEGOLAND; the twinkling delight of Copenhagen’s Tivoli sits divinely beneath numerous royal palaces; and Shakespeare’s castles are uncovered along the trail of Viking legends. With so much variety in architecture and history across this region, a Baltic cruise really makes for an inspiring and deeply cultural experience that is hugely fulfilling.
