A summer sail along traditional trade routes to harbors of Scandinavia and the Baltic.

Travemunde, Germany
Travemunde is a borough of Lubeck, Germany, located at the mouth of the river Trave in Lubeck Bay. Settled in 1317 it has been a seaside resort since 1802 and is Germany's largest ferry port on the Baltic Sea. The lighthouse is the oldest on the German Baltic coast, dating from 1539.

The annual Travemunder Woche is a traditional sailing race week in Northern Europe.


Baltic Sea, Germany
North Sea's German coastline is endless miles of natural white sandy beaches, salt marshes, picturesque freshwater lakes and rugged cliffs. The coastline is a perfect place to bond with nature.

Gdansk, Poland
It is Poland's principal seaport as well as the capital of the Pomeranian Voivodeship. It is also historically the largest city of the Kashubian region.

Gdansk is an important seaport and industrial center for Poland.

In 1970, Gdansk was the scene of anti-regime demonstrations which led to the downfall of Poland's communist leader Wladyslaw Gomulka. Ten years later the Gdansk Shipyard was the birthplace of the Solidarity trade union movement, whose opposition to the Communist regime led to the end of Communist Party rule in 1989, and sparked a series of protests that successfully overturned the Communist regimes of the former Soviet bloc.

Today Gdansk is a major shipping port and tourist destination and has been the setting for a number of major open air concerts.

Most tourist attractions are located along or near Ulica Dluga (Long Street) and Dlugi Targ (Long Market), a pedestrian thoroughfare surrounded by buildings reconstructed in historical (primarily 17th century) style and flanked at both ends by elaborate city gates. This part of the city is sometimes referred to as the Royal Road as the former path of processions for visiting kings.

There are also beaches along the Baltic coast to be visited by all.


Baltic Sea


Visby, Sweden
It is arguably the best-preserved medieval city in Scandinavia and has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visby is a popular vacation destination for Scandinavians during the summer.

In the first week of July, Visby is the scene of the Almedalen Week, an important meeting place for everyone involved in Swedish politics. During the week, representatives from the major political parties in Sweden take turns giving speeches in the Almedalen park.

In August the tourist season is at its peak. In week 32 from Sunday to Sunday the annual Medieval Week is held. During this time regularly dressed tourists are outnumbered by people dressed in Medieval costumes. There are a variety of events: music, jesters, theater, a medieval market, jousting tournaments and much more.


Stockholm, Sweden
Stockholm has been the cultural, media, political, and economic center of Sweden since the 13th century.

Stockholm's core, the present Old Town was built on the central island next to Helgeandsholmen between 1300 and 1500. The strategic and economic importance of the city made Stockholm an important factor in relations between the Danish Kings of the Kalmar Union and the national independence movement in the 15th century. During the latter half of the 20th century, Stockholm became a modern, technologically-advanced, and ethnically diverse city.

Stockholm is Sweden's financial centre.

Stockholm offers plenty of museums, amusement parks, theaters and festivals for tourists to enjoy.


At Sea


Tallin, Estonia
In addition to longtime functions as seaport and capital city, Tallinn has seen development of an information technology sector in recent years.

Since independence, improving air and sea transport links with Western Europe and Estonia's accession to the European Union have made Tallinn easily accessible to tourists.

The main attractions are in the two old towns (Lower Town and Toompea) which are both easily explored on foot. In Toompea, the major attractions are the walls and various bastions of Castrum Danorum, the Russian Orthodox Alexander Nevsky Cathedral and the Lutheran Cathedral. In Lower Town, major sights include Raekoja plats, the town walls and towers, and St Olaf church tower.


Helsinki, Finland
Helsinki is Finland's capital for business, education, research, culture, and government.

The biggest historical museum in Helsinki is the National Museum of Finland, which displays a vast historical collection from prehistoric times to the 21st century. The museum building itself, a national romantic style neo-medieval castle, is a tourist attraction.

The Finnish National Gallery consists on three museums: Ateneum Art Museum for classical Finnish art, Sinebrychoff Art Museum for classical European art, and Kiasma Art Museum for modern art.

Helsinki has three major theatres.


St. Petersburg, Russia (overnight)
Founded by Tsar Peter I of Russia on 27 May, 1703, it was the capital of the Russian Empire for more than two hundred years. Saint Petersburg ceased being the capital in 1918 after the Russian Revolution of 1917.

During the first few years of its existence the city grew spontaneously around Trinity Square on the right bank of the Neva, near the Peter and Paul Fortress.

The Commission of Stone Buildings of Moscow and Saint Petersburg established in 1762 ruled that no structure in the city be higher than the Winter Palace and prohibited spacing between buildings. During the reign of Catherine the Great in the 1760s-1780s the banks of the Neva were lined with granite embankments. However, it wasn't until 1850 that it was allowed to open the first permanent bridge across the Neva, Blagoveshchensky Bridge.

In the 1920s-1930s the poor outskirts were reconstructed into regularly planned boroughs.

After the death of Stalin the perceived ornamental excesses of the Stalinist architecture were abandoned.

On the territory between the Neva and Nevsky Prospekt the Church of the Savior on Blood, Mikhailovsky Palace housing the Russian Museum, Field of Mars, St. Michael's Castle, Summer Garden, Tauride Palace, Smolny Institute and Smolny Convent are located.

Many notable landmarks are situated to the west and south of the Admiralty Building, including the Trinity Cathedral, Mariinsky Palace, Hotel Astoria, famous Mariinsky Theatre, New Holland Island, Saint Isaac's Cathedral, the largest in the city, and Decembrists Square with the Bronze Horseman, 18th century equestrian monument to Peter the Great, which is considered among the city's most recognisable symbols.

Saint Petersburg is home to more than two hundred museums, many of them hosted in historic buildings.

Saint Petersburg is home to numerous parks and gardens, some of the most famous of which are situated in the southern suburbs, including one of the largest English gardens of Europe in Pavlovsk.

Among the city's more than fifty theaters is the world-famous Mariinsky Theater, home to the Mariinsky Ballet company and opera.
