Baltic Sea Cruise

The route: Copenhagen, Denmark; Rostock, Germany; Tallinn, Estonia; St. Petersburg, Russia; Helsinki, Finland; Stockholm, Sweden; return to Copenhagen


The first leg of the cruise is a bit surprising on the map. The reason for sailing counterclockwise around Zeeland island is that the Oresund Bridge connecting Copenhagen to Malmo, Sweden is not tall enough to pass large cruise ships.

Rostock, Germany

The first stop on the cruise portion of our trip was Warnemude, Germany, and nearby Rostock. Both had military installations during World War II and were heavily bombed.
