07/08/19 Tallinn (Estonia) 0815h 1500h
Estonia’s capital is a fascinating blend of Scandinavian elegance, Soviet era concrete and medieval Hanseatic city. The old town, stretching down from Toompea Hill, is a labyrinth of narrow, cobble-stoned streets and alleys, surmounted by ramparts and church towers. The intact, original medieval walled city is interspersed with mighty towers with imaginative names, with the castle and the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral with its onion domes towering above it. On the town hall square with the pretty merchant houses, the Ratsapotheke and the gothic town hall, as well as in the whole old town, not only the buildings but also the atmosphere of the 14th and 15th century survived. Not far from the city, the Rocca al Mare open-air museum shows Estonia’s rural architecture from the 18th to the 20th century.
08/08/19 St. Petersburg (Russia) 0700h o / night
Peter the Great founded St. Petersburg in 1703 as “Window to the West”. Inspired by Europe, the Russian Tsar and his followers created an extraordinary city on the banks of the Neva, whose opulent palaces, grand churches and beautiful parks make up a highly elegant architectural ensemble. The grandiose Hermitage with its priceless art treasures, the incomparable splendor of the Catherine Palace in the former Pushkin and the golden fountains in the gardens of Peterhof testify to the elaborate lifestyle of the once ruling Tsars and nobility. St. Petersburg is considered the birthplace of the Russian Ballet, making it the perfect place to enjoy a masterful dance performance in the evening.

10/8/19 Helsinki (Finland) 0930h 1430h
Finland’s capital is a modern, vibrant city yet is very much in tune with the surrounding nature. The majestic Senate Square, lined with elegant neoclassical buildings and the imposing Lutheran cathedral with white Corinthian columns and five green domes, forms the center of the city. An eye-catching exception to Helsinki’s unified architectural style is the Russian Orthodox Uspenski Cathedral with its onion domes. It rises on a hill at the end of the marketplace and dominates the skyline of the city. Built in massive rock, Temppeliaukio, better known as the Felsenkirche, also presents itself as a rather unusual place of worship. There are plenty of museums, some of the most notable being the National Museum of Finland,
11/8/19 Stockholm (Sweden) 0750h 1745h
They approach Sweden’s magnificent, spacious capital through an archipelago of about 24,000 skerries and islets. Stockholm is itself built on 14 islands, which are connected by about 50 bridges. Founded in 1252, Stockholm evolved from Gamla Stan. The charming old town consists of a labyrinth of medieval streets and tiny lanes along 16th-century buildings. At many houses you can still discover the wrought-iron signs of the old artisan guilds. The Royal City Park Djurgården is a beautiful mix of parkland and woodland. The island is home to the magnificent Wasa Museum, which showcases the upscale Swedish warship that sank during its maiden voyage in the 17th century.
