When a North American holidaymaker thinks of touring the world, a Baltic Sea cruise in Northern Europe comes to mind immediately. Those who’ve already been there always look forward to the day they’ll be back and those who have not yet, always dream of the day they’ll make their voyage.
A voyage through the Baltic Sea to any of the great places in Northern Europe is sure to be very challenging as you’ll be lost for options when it comes to the numerous sightseeing opportunities presented to you. Each of the great capitals has striking royal palaces, thousands of museums, and great architecture, all begging for your attention.
But by taking one of the readily available narrated tours first, you can cover all the major tourist attractions in a few hours, and then go back to the places of very special interest. You’ll relish an amazing amalgamation of avant-garde and historical architecture in Helsinki. Copenhagen on the other hand is the greatest city to take a walk. This is a city that boasts of outstanding gardens, like the famous Tivoli gardens which you can have a clear viewpoint of it by taking a canal.
If you want to be taken 100 year back, you might want to visit Oslo. Another city and arguably the most beautiful in the whole of Europe is Stockholm. Some must visit places in Stockholm is the 600-room royal place, and the St. Petersburg’s State Hermitage Museum that has an encyclopedic art collection.
Learn about Northern Europe’s medieval era by visiting Tallinn, a city that still bears gabled houses and cobblestone streets as they were in 1154 when it was founded. You might also want to visit the city of Gdansk, another attraction that boasts of a very vivacious market area. Berlin, although previously divided, is another city that you can visit and relish modern-day art and culture.
