From your first stop in friendly Gothenburg to two full days discovering dramatic St Petersburg, this 17-night cruise of the Baltic and northern Europe with Aurora is packed with striking architecture, mesmerising history and rich culture.Gothenburg, filled with green parks and gardens galore, is surrounded by a beautiful archipelago of small islands. The fairytale Tivoli Gardens and Kronberg Castle – the original Elsinore in Shakespeare’s Hamlet – of Copenhagen are next. Stockholm, spanning 14 separate islands and myriad small islets, is often described as the ‘Venice of the North’, while Helsinki boasts stunning architecture and luscious parks. In flamboyant St Petersburg seek out Catherine the Great’s Palace and the Hermitage Museum before heading to Tallinn with its fascinating mix of architectural styles.A stroll through the narrow streets of Riga’s walled Old City is a must before you leave for Oslo, surrounded by snow-capped mountains and rolling green hills. Lying on the banks of the Elbe River, historic Hamburg, with its canals, church steeples and cosmopolitan nightlife, is your final port of call.
