5 Quintessential Ports in the Baltic Seas

Superyachts may flock to the sun soaked olive and lemon grove shores of the Mediterranean and the perfect pampering ports of the Caribbean, but the Baltic Seas is a treasure trove of sheer delight, decadent history and quintessential experiences. The intricately carved mountains, clear water fjords and lavish local customs are all alive and well on the Baltic Seas from the marble minarets of St Petersburg to the contemporary chic cafes of Helsinki.

St Petersburg, Russia

Dramatic, lavish and laced in a long complicated history, St Petersburg is an awe-inspiring destination for the luxury lover. Cathedrals, palaces, ornate museums, linen-drenched restaurants and gilded gold greet your eyes at every turn as soon as you step from your superyacht onto shore. The summer palace of the tsars is a regal masterpiece to behold and art lovers will be dazzled by the astounding collection at The Hermitage Museum. With the soft lit long hours of Russia’s white nights, the world’s finest spirits and upscale restaurants like The Literary Café where Pushkin raised his fork for the last time will bring the decadent tour de force of Russia’s past to life.

Gdansk, Poland

The breathtaking atmosphere of Old Gdansk washes over you as soon as you pull into the port with its charming seaside vibes, colorful cafes and picturesque maritime magic. The old town, the glorious golden beaches and the cultural heritage make this a delightful destination to anchor especially in the jewel green summer months. You can sit on the port front and sip the famed spirit of Goldwasser, which leaves golden flakes clinging to your lips, you can taste fresh Turbot on the banks of the river and you can soak up the elegance of the open air opera in the heart of the forest.

Oslo, Norway

Frozen fjords, Viking boats and some of the worlds’ best art makes Oslo a cosmopolitan wonder nestled amidst the natural beauty of thick forests, climbing mountains and a blanket of stars. When it comes to high class living, Oslo knows how to hit the mark with its gourmet inspired restaurants and boutique shopping. With so much green space surrounding you, it’s simple to escape to nature with the bountiful beaches on Bygdoy, the famous Vigeland sculptures in Frogner Park and the sweet summer isles dotted with bright rustic boathouses.

Copenhagen, Denmark

The capital of Denmark is a fairy-tale come to life with its artistic expressionism, chic café culture and 19th century fun. Old world theme parks, literary heroes and gastronomical delights make Copenhagen one of the best places to swing by in the Baltic Sea. The Tivoli gardens are an open air museum with their soft lanterns, Michelin starred restaurants and vintage Ferris wheel turning in the sun. Streamlined designed outdoor swimming pools are perfect for a summer dip at the leafy green BryggeHavnebadet and spending a morning lingering over a plate piled high with delicate pastries and a cup of coffee is the only way to go. As the sun quivers in the sky before dipping down, be sure to grab an inventive drink at Ruby’s Cocktail Chronicles before bagging a table at the famous Noma for bespoke dining at its best.

Helsinki, Finland

Decadent designs, nude swimming and gastronomical feasts are three things that carve Helsinki out on the map. Neo classical streets, lashings of green space and a perfectly pretty port all welcome you into this simple Scandinavian world of fine art, dining and exceptional architecture. The TemppeliaukionKirkko church carved into the rock, the wildflower islands and the midnight sun that shimmers create a magical atmosphere.
