  12:00am Wismar, Germany
The historical towers of Wismars impressive old Churches can be seen from a great distance. Huge warehouses, imposing Gothic brick buildings and walls are all evidence of the heyday of the Hanseatic League. The close affiliation to Sweden profoundly shaped the city and you can still see the Swedish architecture when walking along the Market Square. See the Wasserkunst, Art of Water as well as the classical city hall before you return to the ship.

  12:00am Ronne, Denmark
The island of Bornholm is a far-flung bit of Denmark that appears to have gotten lost in the Baltic Sea between Sweden and Poland. It boasts numerous picturesque fishing villages and 15 medieval churches, some of which are 12th century round structures with unique artwork and architecture. Take a stroll down quiet cobbled lanes in the old part of the capital, Ronne, a garden town, where backyard plots produce flowers and fruit, though they may not be easy to spot behind the fine half-timbered houses. Wednesday is market day on the main square of St. Tory, a great opportunity to chat up the locals, and see what's on offer at their stalls.

27 Apr 2019
  12:00am Visby, Gotland, Sweden
Visby boasts a rich history with tales of the Viking Age when it was a stronghold and trading post, a flourishing medieval period, and its membership in the powerful Hanseatic League. Today Visby is best known as the Town of Roses and Ruins; you can stop and smell the blooms in all their glory in the Botanical Garden, and visit an array of impressive ruined medieval churches. Wander a maze of cobbled streets in the old walled city, bicycle through beguiling countryside and dramatic coastal scenery, cast a line on a fishing expedition, or take a few swings at one of the seven excellent golf courses.

  12:00am Klaipeda, Lithuania
Lithuania's sole seaport, Klaipeda is your gateway to Vilnius, the nation's capital. Europe's City of Culture for 2009, Vilnius boasts an historic city centre that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The old city is renowned for its stunning examples of late Gothic and Baroque architecture. Highlights include the Cathedral, where the Grand Dukes of Lithuania were crowned and one of the oldest universities in Eastern Europe.

  12:00am Gdansk, Poland
Gdańsk is a 1,000-year-old port city on the Baltic coast of Poland, which, together with the city of Gdynia and the town of Sopot, makes up the metropolitan area Trójmiasto, “the Tricity”. Home to the Westerplatte, where World War II broke out in 1939, Gdańsk was mostly destroyed during the war, but there are still many impressive sights. Wander through cobblestone streets and mazes of red-brick buildings to discover the Upland Gate, St. Mary’s Church, the medieval Gdańsk Crane or the stunning facade of the Great Arsenal.
