Day 1: Cruise from Helsinki to St. Petersburg

Your journey will begin in Helsinki, the Finnish capital. This glorious city is renowned for lovely architecture, outstanding museums, and a delectable array of gourmet food. As a seaside city with numerous islands and rivers, Helsinki offers many beautiful bridges to explore on foot. Impressive examples of Neoclassical buildings compose Senate Square and the city center, such as the Helsinki Cathedral. You can purchase a range of crafts, souvenirs and treats at the popular Market Square.

Your Baltic Cruise from Helsinki to St. Petersburg will start at 6:00 pm (18:00)

Day 2: Visit St. Petersburg, Russia Visa Free

You will greet the second morning in St. Petersburg, a majestic city with 18th century imperial roots. As you walk down Nevsky Prospekt with our experienced guide, you’ll see many of this city’s most prominent buildings. On one side is the Kazan Cathedral, with 96 stone columns, a soaring dome, and a grand interior with striking mosaic floors. On the other side of the street is the dazzling Church of Our Savior on the Spilled Blood, designed by the most famed Russian artists of the late 19th century.

The Hermitage Museum houses one of the best art collections in the world within its massive exhibition spaces. This Baroque-style building has over 1,057 halls filled with art and artifacts from around the world, ranging from Egyptian relics to masterpieces by Leonardo di Vinci. We’ll also visit the ancient Peter and Paul Fortress, which is currently a part of the State Museum of St. Petersburg History. This compound is the oldest structure in St. Petersburg and was used for various purposes throughout history, including as a prison, military base, and science lab. Next, at evening we’ll sail to Tallinn.

Day 3: Baltic Cruise from St. Petersburg to Tallinn

At morning you will arrive to Tallinn, the captivating capital of Estonia. Our guide will meet you to show the town within a walking panoramic tour. Surrounded by ancient stone walls, the Old Town will charm you with its winding alleyways, medieval cathedrals and colorful history. Notable Tallinn monuments include the Town Hall Square, built in 1404, and the Dome Church, which has tombstones dating back to the 1200s. You will admire all these beauties with our professional English speaking guide who will meet you upon arrival.  In the evening you will board the cruise ferry for a departure to Stockholm.

Day 4: Baltic Cruise from Tallinn to Stockholm

The cruise ferry arrives in Stockholm at 9:30 am and our professional guide will meet you to take a metro and discover Stockholm and visit the enormous Royal Palace. The harbour city of Stockholm will give you a glimpse of coastal elegance. Spread across 14 islands, this fabulous city is nicknamed “Venice of the North.” One of the most popular attractions in Stockholm is the medieval Gamla Stan (Old Town), where the cobblestone streets are packed with restaurants, boutique shops and museums.

One of the most remarkable and iconic images in Stockholm is the City Hall (optional). This building features a 106 meter high tower that displays the golden Three Crowns – the national coat of arms of Sweden. You can also visit the unique Vasa Museum (optional), where the world’s only preserved 17th century ship is on full display. Ten exhibitions around the ship tell tales about life on board. As the most visited museum in Scandinavia, the Vasa hosts over one million guests each year!
