Historic Cities of the Baltic Sea: Seven 8-night Departures Between May and August 2020 In Ponant’s Brand-New 184-berth Le Bellot

The Cruise

Culture Cruises invites you to discover St Petersburg and other cities steeped in history of the Baltic Sea. From Stockholm, embark on a 9-day cruise, including three exceptional days in the former capital of the Tsars.

Your first port of call will be Visby, a site that was important for the Hanseatic League in the Baltic Sea around the 13th century. UNESCO Heritage Site, this once opulent city still has remarkably well-preserved ramparts, public buildings, merchant houses and warehouses.

Your ship will then head to Helsinki. Located on a peninsula surrounded by almost 300 islands, the verdant capital of Finland will charm you with its Art Nouveau architecture.

You will then visit St Petersburg. Architectural gems in the Baroque style, churches with domes so elaborate they seem otherworldly, palaces, gardens, canals, and the famous “perspectives” that criss-cross the city: at each street corner a new theatrical decor is revealed. We invite you to visit this colourful city where the atmosphere is rich with the splendour of the Tsars and the traces of the Russian Enlightenment.

After a final port of call in Tallinn, your ship will head for Copenhagen, where you disembark.
