Bornholm, Meet the Nature
The natural world on Bornholm is the main reason why many people choose to visit the island and nature on Bornholm is truly unique! You will meet with your local guide at the pier. You are now ready to start this walk, which is possibly the most beautiful walk along Bornholm’s coast.  You will start to follow the rocky path north around Salene Bay to “Helligdommsklipperne.”  Through the millennia, the surf at this location has eroded the rocky coast and created deep gorges into the mountain. Now standing high and proud are the sharp cutting edges, rugged granite columns and steep rock walls with deep corridors and caves - so-called "ovens" that make up Helligdomsklipperne. The path will take you past “Hestestenene,”  the horse stones, which are three monoliths that act as navigation marks on the edge of a cliff 112 feet above the sea. You will continue through natural forest with the bay on one side and steep cliffs on the other - ending by the rugged rock formations  - Helligdomsklipperne. Here you have a chance to climb down a ladder to get a better overview of the rock formations and to get closer to the water. Then you will continue up to the Art Museum, where a well-deserved refreshment, of your own choice, will be enjoyed. You now have the choice to stay seated and enjoy the view or to have a look around the museum before returning to the pier by bus.

Please note:  Wear comfortable walking shoes and comfortable clothing. Bring sunglasses, hat, sunscreen if sunny. In case of rain, guests should wear raingear or to bring an umbrella. Extra water is also recommended.

Gdansk, Malbrok Castle
Malbork Castle is the most complete and elaborate example of the Gothic brick castle complex in the characteristic and unique style of the Teutonic Order. What is more, in 1997 it was listed as a World Heritage Site by UNSECO. Much of the original structure survives at Malbork to testify to the high standards and outstanding quality of the workmanship practiced in the region throughout the 14th century. Construction along the Nogat River commenced in 1274, with the Teutonic Knights creating this massive stone fortress that includes formidable defensive walls, towers, a labyrinth of chambers, dungeons and wonderful architectural details. In 1309, the Knight’s headquarters moved there from Venice, furthermore when in 1466 both castle and town became part of Royal Prussia, a province of Poland, it served as the royal residence of Polish kings for the next 300 years. Extensive conservation works of the castle were carried out in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Following the severe damage that it incurred in the final stage of World War II, the castle was renovated once again. Nowadays, the castle serves as a museum with grand exhibition halls, which display collections of armory, ceramics, sculptures and spectacular Baltic amber.  You will depart the pier for the 75 minute drive to Malbork where you will spend 2.5 hours in this delightful setting.

St. Petersburg, Peter & Paul Fortress and St. Isaacs Cathedral
Drive to the city center with an introduction to the history of St. Petersburg.  The first stop is at the Cathedral of St. Peter & Paul.  The Peter & Paul Fortress was founded in 1703 to defend the city, and is considered to be the birth place of St. Petersburg.  The Cathedral, designed by Trezini, features a guilded spire stretching more than 380 feet into the sky and is a distinctive, majestic landmark. Continue past the 18th century buildings of the University and across the bridge over the Neva River to the mainland. The next stop is at St. Isaac’s Square.  Here you will visit the St. Isaac’s Cathedral.  The Cathedral, designed by the French Architect Montferrand, is the largest church in St. Petersburg with a capacity of 10,000 people. The interior of the cathedral is richly decorated with different kinds of marble, malachite and other semi-precious stones. 

Please note: Tour order may vary. This tour is not recommended for persons with walking or climbing difficulties. There are long walking distances and cobblestones.

St. Petersburg, Pushkin & Pavlosk
The town of Pushkin, only 50 minutes from your pier contains a marvelous ensemble of palaces and parks. Catherine’s Palace is an ornate masterpiece whose façade is decorated in white, blue and gold. You will see a series of imposing rooms, including the famous Picture Gallery and Great Hall and the recreated Amber Room, whose panels were stolen by the Nazis during the war, smuggled (as legend holds) to Paraguay and lost forever. After lunch, you will proceed on to the Imperial Estate of Pavlovsk and Grand Paul’s Palace, a gift from Catherine the Great to her son Paul on the birth of his son, Alexander. The Grecian Ballroom, adorned with green-fluted Corinthian columns, is probably the palace’s most elegant room. Paul’s rooms are richly adorned with mahogany and heavy gilding while those of his wife pervade a distinctive charm, rather than grandeur. Nearby Pavlovsk Park boasts ponds, valleys, waterfalls and statues and is one of the largest of its type in Europe.

Please note: This excursion is not recommended for persons with walking or climbing difficulties. The palace is not wheelchair accessible due to its steep staircase, absence of elevators and long walking distances. Expect congestion and waiting at attractions. The tour timetable may vary due to traffic conditions.

St. Petersburg, The Hermitage
Your tour’s main destination will be the Hermitage Museum – a spectacular landmark which ranks among the world’s finest museums. The Hermitage was created in 1764 by Czarina Catherine the Great. Her original purchase of 225 canvasses by Dutch and Flemish masters provided the nucleus of today's collection, which consists of almost 3 million exhibits and represents many cultures. The museum boasts 353 rooms, filled with masterpieces by Raphael, Titan, Giorgione, Michelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci and others. Located within the Winter Palace on the banks of the Neva River, the Hermitage Museum is a work of art in itself. Pay special attention to the spectacular staircases, marble structures, malachite columns and highly decorated floors and ceilings, in this former residence of mighty Russian czars.

Please note: Flash photography is not allowed in the Hermitage Museum. The Hermitage requires extensive walking and stair climbing and there may be lines and delays between galleries. Guests in wheelchairs must advise the Shore Excursion Desk ahead of time in order to pre-arrange the use of the elevators in the Hermitage, which are not accessible to all visitors. Guests in wheelchairs will require assistance for pushing their wheelchair in order to stay with the group. No free time in the Hermitage on Mondays.
