The Baltic Sea
Vegan Travel's Baltic Sea Summer Cruise 2019 - Welcome aboard!
Join Vasco da Gama in Kiel, Germany to begin your all vegan discovery of the Baltic. On arrival in Sassnitz, step ashore to discover what is today one of Germany’s most popular and most beautiful islands. Cruise on to the Polish city of Gdansk, where you can wander the narrow lanes of the Old Town lined with elegant historic buildings. On to Latvia to discover Riga’s UNESCO-listed centre, which displays an impressive collection of art-nouveau architecture. Vasco da Gama then sets her sights on Estonia’s capital, Tallinn, a city with an intriguing Soviet past and a UNESCO-listed Old Town. Tallinn is one of the most intact medieval cities in Europe, where spired churches and ancient merchant houses are among the many gems.
Petersburg is your next destination. Built from nothing by Peter the Great, St Petersburg, blossomed into Russia’s imperial capital. An extended stay gives you time to immerse yourself in its rich and colourful history – seek out the innumerable treasures housed in the Hermitage Museum and revel in the grandeur of the Peterhof Palace. Take your place on deck the next morning as Vasco da Gama cruises through the Stockholm archipelago to the Swedish capital, a maze of 14 islands connected by bridges. Marvel at the medieval heart of the city, Gamla Stan, and view the Vasa, a 17th century warship which capsized on her maiden voyage and now resides, carefully restored, in the Vasa Museum. Next, step ashore in Helsinki, Finland’s vibrant yet compact capital. Its centre is home to Senate Square, an archaeological masterpiece, or explore Suomenlinna, a group of seven islands, where the world’s largest sea fortress resides. A relaxed vegan day at sea then takes you back to Kiel, Germany.
