Bunker Down

Skagen's coastline is home to a number of bunkers dating back to World War II, some half-submerged in water or sand. Check out the Skagen Bunker Museum, located in an old German bunker.

A close-up view of The Sand-Covered Church in Skagen, Denmark

Sandy Worship

Built in the 14th century and dedicated to Saint Lawrence of Rome, the Sand-Covered Church was overcome by rising levels of sand that buried the structure faster than it could be dug out. At one point, the door had to be dug out before every service, which led to the locals abandoning the church. Today, just the main tower remains, still at the mercy of the shifting sands and winds.

The Skagen lighthouse in Skagen, Denmark

Northern Lighthouse

Make time for a visit to the Skagen Grey Lighthouse. Not only is this a distinctive sight of north Jutland, with sweeping views of Kattegat Bay, it's also home to a migratory bird sanctuary – head here to spot species of Arctic birds on their way from Scandinavia to warmer environments.

Two filets of smoked mackerel

Medieval Roots

From the red-roofted towers of its Town Walls, to the Orthodox Alexander Nevsky Cathedral and the smoky pink Riigikogu parliament house, Tallinn's medieval Old Town looks straight out of a fairy tale. Make sure to stop in central Raejoka Plats, a charming square filled with cafes and restaurants.

Aerial view of the business district in Tallinn, Estonia

Tallinn's New-School Side

Estonia was the birthplace of tech giant Skype, after all, and Tallinn's modern central business district reflects this futurism. Meanwhile, the Rotterdam District hearkens back to the pre-Russian Art Nouveau period of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Estonian food mixes Baltic and Russian influences — pickled herring is a common sight on Estonian tables, as is hearty black rye bread. Check out one of the cool cellar restaurants, which are situated on the garden level of warehouse buildings.

Local Cuisine

Russians flock to St Petersburg because of its cosmopolitan vibe, but use your stop here to discover local cuisine.

St Petersburg's shopping options are as grand as its architecture. The luxurious Gostiny Dvor shopping centre is an essential stop with your St Petersburg cruise.

INSIDER TIP

Keep your cruise documents with you. Being on a cruise (and stopping for 72 hours or less) is all that exempts you from needing a visa, so you'll want to have your papers in case authorities ask for them.

SHOPPING

De Bijenkorf has been the city’s most famous department store since 1870. Daily open-air markets span the city, including the aromatic Flower Market. Browse jewellery shops and boutiques amongst The Nine Streets – or pick up cannabis-inspired goods in the Red Light District. Also be sure to take home the region’s legendary blue Delft pottery.
