Fly from Dublin to Copenhagen and board the Regal Princess for this eleven-day cruise to Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Russia, Estonia, Germany & Norway.
Copenhagen was founded during the 12th century. The city owes much of its charm to the buildings erected by Denmark's monarchs, and boasts a treasure trove of late-Renaissance and Rococo architecture. Copenhagen deserves its accolade as the Venice of the North. Founded on a series of islands and islets, the city today is laced with graceful canals and boasts some of the most delightful architecture in Northern Europe. See the fabled statue of Hans Christian Andersen's Little Mermaid, a symbol of the city. Stroll along the old harbor of Nyhavn, lined with cafés, restaurants and 500-year-old gabled houses.
Stockholm covers 14 separate islands and is interwoven with bays, channels and inlets. The city skyline is a sea of copper roofs grown green with patina, towers, spires and graceful cupolas stand sentinel over the historic Old Town (Gamla Stan). A city of nearly a million people, Stockholm is one of the world's most beautiful, clean, and orderly metropolises.
Helsinki is one of the most vibrant and beautiful cities in the Nordic countries. Hailed as the "Daughter of the Baltic," Finland's capital is a city of graceful neoclassical buildings, striking modern architecture and spacious boulevards dotted with squares and parks.
St. Petersburg has provided a historic stage since the day Peter the Great ordained its construction on the banks of the Neva. In its relatively short history - the city is younger than New York- St. Petersburg has witnessed the rise and fall of Imperial Russia, three shattering revolutions, and civil war. The city survived a long and tragic siege during World War II. St. Petersburg remains one of the world's most beautiful metropolises. Perched on the banks of the Neva, the city is crisscrossed by canals. The rich architecture features a mixture of styles from ornate Russian Baroque churches to neo-classical palaces.
Visit a historic Russian Orthodox Cathedral in the Estonian capital of Talinn. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral serves as the dominating landmark in Palace Square. Witness the cathedral's cupolas and golden crosses rising high above the rooftops. Like Latvia and Lithuania, the Baltic republic of Estonia has survived a turbulent history.
The small nation was conquered and ruled by the likes of Teutonic Knights, Polish princes and Russian Tsars. Stout Margaret Tower is one of Tallinn's most impressive defensive structures (also known as "Fat Margaret"). The origin of the name is a mystery: some say it was named for a large cannon, while others claim a cook called Margaret once worked here.
Berlin is a worthy rival to London or Paris in terms of history, art and culture. The city's highlights include the restored Reichstag Building with its magnificent glass dome, the Brandenburg Gate and the stunning Museum Island. Explore the old Cold War hot spots and view the Brandenburg Gate, restored to its original magnificence. Or, stroll along the Kurfurstendamm and take coffee in a local café.
Forest-clad slopes plummet to an island-studded fjord. Welcome to Oslo, Scandinavia's oldest capital city. The commercial center of Norway, Oslo has been a major trading port for over a millennium. The hills and lakes of its outlying countryside are a paradise for lovers of winter sports. Oslo itself boasts a sophisticated, yet cozy charm, with a blend of 19th- and 20th-century buildings, many decorated with woodcarvings and bright frescoes, and wide avenues dotted with public squares and parks.
