Setting sail from Rotterdam
One of the great ports of Europe, Rotterdam's impressive skyline can be seen from far and wide. With great architecture both ancient and modern, fantastic exhibition and concert halls, theatres, pretty galleries and numerous museums, there is so much to do when you stay here. Excellent restaurants reflect global influences, and in this metropolitan city there is also a great night life. During the day, the shopping is excellent, and countless small harbours are situated along the banks of Rotterdam's river, the Maas, each with its own unique character.
Visit the historic and picturesque area of Delfshaven, exploring the tiny courtyards and buildings laced with canals. The Pilgrim Fathers fled England to stay here before continuing to North America.
Wonderful Copenhagen is the perfect city to explore on foot, by bicycle or by water. Visit the bustling wharf at Nyhavn, enjoy the palaces, galleries and museums, wander through the amazing Tivoli Gardens, and if you have time, make the most of Copenhagen’s gastronomic revolution.
Germany: Warnemünde (Rostock)
The old Hanseatic port of Rostock was heavily damaged in the Second World War, though attractive enclaves of historic architecture remain. The little village of Warnemünde, a suburb of Rostock, is home to one of the most appealing beaches on the Baltic coast.
The historic harbour city of Tallinn in Estonia is really quite captivating. Just the perfect size to explore on foot, its medieval (and UNESCO listed) town centre, with its cobblestone streets and a busy Town Hall Square, is the perfect introduction to Estonia’s rich history.
Russia: St Petersburg
Lovely St Petersburg, the jewel in the crown of Baltic cities, features so much to see and do, with its high art, lavish architecture, dramatic history and rich cultural traditions. An extraordinary wealth of treasures sit alongside historical tales which will captivate and intrigue you.
Finland’s lovely capital Helsinki is a maritime city, with the sea on three sides and almost 100 kilometres of shoreline, as well as around 300 islands. Its contemporary architecture and focus on modern design sit surprisingly well alongside its four hundred year history.
Arriving in Rotterdam
The Kijk-Kubus (Show-Cube), part of an innovative new development designed by Piet Blom, is a furnished exhibition house, demonstrating a way of living unlike any other.
