Trips to the Baltic Countries and Scandinavia

A cruise to Scandinavia is not complete without stops in the Baltic states too, a region with rich cultural traditions and lovely Old Towns that date back to the medieval traders of the Hanseatic League. If you hope to visit large cosmopolitan cities, some of the world’s “most livable” are in Scandinavia. Everyone will have something to enjoy in Norway, from its colorful Viking history to the beautiful fjords.

Don’t overlook Stockholm’s “Venice of Scandinavia”, Helsinki’s collection of Art Nouveau and Neoclassical works, or Tallinn’s delicate steeples and striking red rooftops. family-591579__340.jpg Finally, no trip to the region is complete without experiencing the spectacular northern lights.

Situated in between the continents of Europe and Asia you will find Russia, the largest nation on the globe. No travel to Russia is complete without a visit to the enchanting Peterhof Palace in St Petersburg. After a tour of Moscow’s iconic Red Square, stop for a meal and sample Russia’s legendary caviar and blini pancakes.
