St Petersburg and the Heart of the Baltic
Fortress ruins, crumbling castles, cobbled streets and soaring church spires - when it comes to fairytale scenery and settings, the Baltic States really deliver. As you cruise around the region, you’ll tick off a string of elegant Scandinavian cities, including culture-packed Copenhagen and neo-classical Helsinki. We’ll dock overnight in opulent St Petersburg, Russia’s most ‘European’ city and the grand jewel in the Baltic crown, before traveling home via the Kiel Canal - the world’s busiest artificial waterway.
