Passing picturesque islands and small cliffs, the EUROPA 2 will navigate through the famous rocky inlets where you can enjoy fantastic views of this natural panorama. You can enjoy a more hands-on experience with the green island world off Stockholm on a tour in an RIB**, a manoeuvrable inflatable boat. A city tour** will take you to the Vasa Museum**. The old warship sank more than 300 years ago on its maiden voyage and has now, after being lovingly restored, been returned to its former glory.

Gdynia (Gdansk)
The glamour of Gdansk, which has evolved into a major centre of commerce, culture and politics over its 1,000-year history, is reflected in majestic town houses, the impressive St. Mary’s Basilica and the town hall on the Dlugi Targ (“long market”). A kayak tour** will provide exciting views of the city. The majestic Malbork Castle**, formerly the headquarters of the Teutonic Order and the largest brick building in Europe, is just as worth a visit as Gdansk itself.

On a walk along the coast**, we will cut through the picturesque town of Gudhjem before our path leads us to the rugged Helligdomsklipperne, also known as Sanctuary Rocks. The four round churches, which were built around 800 years ago and which were originally used to protect the population, are the landmark of Bornholm.
