Baltic Bank Holiday Adventure
Explore some of Northern Europe’s least-known ports as Marco Polo cruises from Portsmouth to the Baltic. See six centuries of Germany’s finest architecture in one place on Wismar’s vast Market Square, including the intricate, copper -roofed Wasserkunst fountain that stands in its centre. Stroll the pretty streets around Ronne's lively St Torv market on the Danish island of Bornholm, and explore Visby, on Swedish Gotland, where you'll find wooden cottages and Gothic churches still protected by the town's medieval walls.
Sail south to Klaipeda in Lithuania and to Gdansk - one of Poland's most unexpectedly beautiful cities – and through the Great Belt, which effectively separates Denmark into two halves, to the fortress-city of Fredericia. After Marco Polo cruises back through the tranquil waters of the Kiel Canal she’ll make one last call, at Ijmuiden in Holland, where you’ll have the chance to join an optional shore excursion through tulip fields and orchards to the spectacular medieval city of Haarlem.
