See what it’s like to step back in time during a Baltic Sea cruise with Celebrity Cruises in this video, where we explore this unique region filled with Medieval history, fascinating culture, and extraordinary art and design.
Discover the highlights and ports of call of this spectacular cruise itinerary, where you’ll stop in Russia, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Estonia, and Germany.
Start off in St. Petersburg, a city full of opulent palaces, world-class museums, and picturesque canals. Go inside the State Hermitage Museum, the second-largest art museum in the world, and visit the famous domes of the Church of the Savior on the Spilled Blood, one of the city’s most iconic buildings. See the lavish summer residences of Russian tsars at Catherine’s Palace and Peterhof, where an enthralling complex of palaces, gardens, and fountains await.
Then head to Stockholm, the capital of Sweden and one of the most exciting destinations you’ll visit on a Baltic cruise. Get a sneak peek at Gamla Stan, the city’s historic Old Town, where you’ll find important landmarks like the Royal Palace and the Stockholm Cathedral.
See the Vasa Museum, which houses the world’s best-preserved 17th-century ship, or the Abba Museum, a fun, interactive destination where you can enjoy the memorabilia, costumes, and hit songs by Sweden’s most famous band.
Witness the Medieval castles of Copenhagen, Denmark. Catch a glimpse of Frederiksborg Castle, a spectacular Renaissance structure that also houses the Museum of National History. See the 16th-century Kronborg Castle, the setting of Shakespeare’s famous play, Hamlet, along with the imposing Rosenborg Castle and its sprawling gardens.
Our video tour also stops in Helsinki, a city full of minimalist design and bold architecture. Discover neoclassical buildings like the Senate Square and Helsinki Cathedral, then visit two striking architectural gems, including Sibelius Park and Rock Church, a domed cathedral built inside an excavated rock.
Explore the burgeoning city of Tallinn, Estonia, which was formerly occupied by the Soviet Union. Tallinn’s most impressive attraction is its impeccably preserved Medieval walled city, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that dates back to the 13th century.
Finally, get a look at Warnemunde, Germany, a charming port city with quaint beaches and picturesque landscapes. Warnemunde is a great jumping-off point to nearby Berlin, where you can spend the day visiting the city’s historical landmarks, like the Berlin Wall and Checkpoint Charlie, the former crossing point between East and West Berlin.
