I have posted a trip report on the city of Oslo, Norway which was the final port of call on the Baltic cruise that our family took for summer vacation 2009. Oslo is the capital and largest city in Norway and is well-known as a great destination for outdoor activities given its location at the head of the Oslo fjord and surrounded by forest. Oslo is also notorious for being one of the most expensive cities in the world – I believe my large latte cost me close to $10CAD but it was oh so good!
I have posted a report on the day that our family spent in Gdansk, Poland while on a Baltic cruise in the summer of 2009. Gdansk, which was once an independent city-state called Danzig, celebrated its 1000th year as a Baltic city in 1997. The city was almost completely destroyed during the Second World War but the streets of its Main Town have been carefully restored.
I have posted a report on the day that our family spent in Tallinn, Estonia while on a Baltic cruise in the summer of 2009. We had no itinerary - our goal was just to relax and enjoy the historic Old Town on a beautiful summer's day. We discovered that the charm of Tallinn is in wandering the cobble-stoned streets, marvelling at the medieval architecture and absorbing the atmosphere. The well-preserved Old Town is like a picture-perfect fairytale village and an ideal place to while away an afternoon. We had a wonderful relaxed day which was exactly what we needed after two hectic days of sightseeing in St. Petersburg.
