We invite you to discover St Petersburg and other cities steeped in history of the Baltic Sea.
From Stockholm, embark aboard Le Dumont-d’Urville for a 11-day cruise, including 3 exceptional days in the former capital of the Tsars.
Your first port of call will be Helsinki. Located on a peninsula surrounded by almost 300 islands, the verdant capital of Finland will charm you with its Art Nouveau architecture.
Your ship will then head to St Petersburg. Architectural gems in the Baroque style, churches with domes so elaborate they seem otherworldly, palaces, 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.
You will then visit two sites that were important for the Hanseatic League in the Baltic Sea around the 13th century: Tallinn and Visby. UNESCO Heritage Sites, these once opulent cities still have remarkably well-preserved ramparts, public buildings, merchant houses and warehouses.
After a final port of call in Gdansk in Poland, Le Dumont-d’Urville will head for Copenhagen, your disembarkation port.
