Reasons to visit the Baltic on a cruise holiday

Artwork and Architecture

Feast your eyes on incredible artworks and architecture – think Copenhagen’s Little Mermaid statue and the colourful domes of St Petersburg’s Church of the Saviour on the Spilled Blood. Helsinki is a design lover’s dream: the city boasts some of the finest examples of Art Nouveau architecture, with the central train station and National Theatre being prime examples. Be sure to also visit the Design Museum, a treasure trove of Finnish design.

Contemporary Cuisine

The Baltic’s food scene has boomed in recent years. When in Oslo, you can’t go wrong with seafood – smoked salmon and tørrfisk (air-dried cod) are good bets. Scandinavian and German influences are evident in Estonian cuisine – sample the local delicacy of kiluvõileib, a sprat sandwich made with traditional black bread, washed down with a local craft beer.

Fascinating History

Discover fascinating history in sensational Baltic ports. The Gotlands Museum in Visby is home to hundreds of fascinatingartefacts from the Stone and Bronze Ages, as well as unusual Viking picture stonesand the Spillings Hoard, the largest Viking Age silver hoard ever found. Over the centuries Estonia has been a battleground for Danish, Swedish, Polish, German and Russian forces all jostling for supremacy, but today Tallinn is a peaceful yet vibrant modern capital.
