Baltic Cruise — Helsinki, then on to Klaipėda


Vision of the Seas in Helsinki

Most of this week I’ll be showing you Klaipėda, Lithuania, but I’m also today going to throw in Helsinki, Finland because the weather was so dismal and rainy I didn’t get many photos, let alone worthwhile ones. As such, here’s one more shot of Helsinki before we move on today:

Besides, Klaipėda, Lithuania was much more picturesque anyway, so let’s skip Helsinki and move on.

Klaipėda, Lithuania

Klaipėda is a really fun place to walk around. Indeed, next to Talinn, Estonia, it was one of Ursula’s favorite Baltic stops on this cruise. Here, the building are rustic, including exposed timber framing:

And even the occasional splash of art in the street:

Baltic Cruise — Continuing Around Stockholm


Stockholm, Sweden

Despite unfavorably cloudy skies, Stockholm is still fun to photograph as long as the rain holds off. We weren’t so lucky at a preceding stop into Klaipėda, Lithuania, as you’ll see next Monday.

Stockholm, Sweden

The architecture of Stockholm has evolved over the centuries. But I prefer the classic look of the ‘Old Town,’ or Gamla stan as it’s known locally.
