L'Austral - Baltic Sea Cruise: Stockholm (Sweden) to Copenhagen (Denmark)

May 19-26, 2014 - 8 days / 7 nights on board 

  • Explore the natural sites and cities steeped in history of the Baltic Sea.
  • Architectural gems in the Baroque style, churches with domes so elaborate they seem otherworldly, palaces, fountains, 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.

Day 2 - Helsinki (Finland) 
Helsinki is known as the “daughter of the Baltic” and this superb port city and cultural capital possesses great historical treasures. With its blend of European, Scandinavian and Russian influences, Helsinki is a city of contrasts. The different architectural styles are the perfect reflection of the multicultural past of the country and its capital. Discover the Lutheran temple of Temppeliaukion that was dug from the rocks, Finlandia Hall, the palace of Concerts, designed by Aalto, and the magnificent Orthodox cathedral. A city that is literally built on water, Helsinki is surrounded by numerous islands, some of which are fortified, such as Soumenlinna.

There is so much to see here: Pavlovski Palace (the tsars summer residence), Peter and Paul Fortress, the Pushkin Museum, the magnificent Saint Isaac’s Cathedral and of course the world-renowned Hermitage Museum where more than three million items are on display. The pomp and ceremony of the tsars still hang in the air of this UNESCO World Heritage site.
