With an overnight in Rotterdam and St. Petersburg, you can explore even more on this sailing. See the best-preserved medieval city in Northern Europe in Tallinn, with the inner town still protected by an ancient wall. While Old Town is a medieval maze of Gothic spires and cobbled paths, the city center is modern. St. Petersburg’s colorful onion domes can be appreciated at the Spilled Blood Cathedral. And art lover or not, The Hermitage Museum is incredible, with over 3 million items. Since you’re here overnight, take time to savor traditional Russian dishes like Beef Stroganoff or Chicken Kiev. Blinis, their version of crepes, are delicious topped with caviar. The White City of the North, Helsinki, is a walkable town that gets its nickname not from the winter weather but from its many buildings constructed from light-colored granite. Built in 1868, the Uspenski Cathedral with its golden cupolas is the largest orthodox church in Western Europe. If you’re wondering if you can drink the water, definitely yes. It comes from mountain springs via the world’s longest water tunnel.
See exquisite Baroque palaces in the medieval town of Estonia.
