This striking seaside port is surrounded by uplifting natural landscapes that are easily accessible from each area of the city. The port also boasts a UNESCO-listed sea fortress just a short distance from the shore which is worth the short ferry journey to explore its historic walls and gates. Senate Square, one of Finland's most
photographed places, is home to fine examples of neoclassical architecture including unique designs from renowned architect Carl Ludvig Enge.
- 2 days to explore St. Petersburg. The jewel in the Baltic crown and Russia's most European city, elegant St Petersburg was the imperial capital for two centuries and Tsar Peter the Great's 'Window on the West'. The sheer grandeur of the city and its revolutionary spirit never fail to impress. Founded in 1703 by Peter the Great and immortalised by the city's iconic Bronze Horseman statue, St Petersburg remains Russia's cultural centre. The
Mariinsky Theatre hosts world-class opera and ballet and the State Russian Museum showcases a wide collection of superb Russian art. The Winter Palace, with over a thousand rooms is the most magnificent of six buildings that make up the Hermitage Museum. It is one of 125 museums and galleries including the imposing seafront Peterhof Royal Palace and Park.
- Riga, Latvia. Set at the mouth of the River Daugava, the cultural centre of Riga has been an important centre for trade and finance over the centuries and boasts fine examples of architecture, museums and concert halls. The city's modern urban structures blend seamlessly with medieval castles, churches and the wooden buildings of its medieval Old Town.

- Lubeck is one of the major ports of Germany Located on the River Trave.

- The Kiel Canal. Connecting the North Sea, at the mouth of the Elbe River, to the Baltic Sea at Holtenau, the Kiel Canal is one of the world's busiest and most important shipping routes.
