Duration: 2.50 Hrs Tour
Date: July 12, 2017 08:30 AM
Dramatically situated at the point where Lake Mälaren meets the Baltic Sea, Stockholm was founded as a fortress in the mid-13th century. Over time, the fortress attracted a populace living outside its walls, and the town eventually spread over more than a dozen islands and onto the mainland. Today, the capital of Sweden encompasses five unique city districts, each with its own special character.
This panoramic tour allows you to view Stockholm’s most notable landmarks from the comfort of your coach. Enjoy a drive around Gamla Stan, Stockholm’s medieval Old Town, past the dignified Royal Palace and by the charming inner harbor. Another highlight is the Royal Dramatic Theater, which you will see along Strandvägen, one of the city’s finest streets, as you proceed to the verdant island of Djurgården, once a royal hunting preserve. Following your tour of the city, you’ll transfer directly back to the pier.
Royal Opera House of Stockholm #Stockholm#royaloperahouseofstockholm #Regent25#regentsevenseasexplorer#h2hssexplorer2017 #H2HStockholm The Royal Palace (1754) with 674 rooms though the King doesn’t live here. He lives around 30 minutes away but comes here for work. They say it’s bigger than Buckingham Palace With high-end fashion stores, stunning eighteenth century buildings, opulent restaurants and a harbour packed with luxury boats, Strandvägen is part of the most exclusive district in Stockholm, Östermalm, although the area used to be a ghetto back in the 1800s. There are just 37 residential properties on this long street (The Local SE) #strandvägen #Stockholm#Regent25 #regentsevenseasexplorer#h2hssexplorer2017 #h2hrealestate#H2HStockholm
We had a proper breakfast only on our last day at the main dining room of the ship – Compass Rose Dining room Best table is always by the window WOW!

YUM!!! It made me even feel worse it was our last day on the ship!! figs
As recommended by our tour guide, we had lunch at Olde Hansa which is a Medieval restaurant. It was very interesting. It was dark inside with candles all over which was how it was doing the Medieval times. We decided to eat outside haha!! #oldehansa #oldehansatallinn #Tallin#Estonia #Regent25#regentsevenseasexplorer#h2hssexplorer2017 Mushroom soup which was under the bread plate Medieval food at @olde_hansa Game sausages made out of wild boar, elk and bear Himalayan Lamb #oldehansa#oldehansatallinn #Tallin #Estonia#Regent25 #regentsevenseasexplorer#h2hssexplorer2017 #h2hlamb Wild Boar Divine Leg of Pork
What a nice way to give credit to the crew who work so hard to make everything perfect for the guests on the ship. Without them there would be no memorable experience on the ship
Majority of the crew of #regentsevenseasexplorer @regentcruises are Filipinos and they are the best! We made sure we watched the show to support our fellow kababayans and cheer for them. Ofcourse Pinoys are great performers and we are so proud of them and love them #Regent25#regentcruises #h2hssexplorer2017#h2hentertainment
My favorite among the Hanseatic league ( Lithuania and Latvia) The old Town Tallin is a UNESCO Heritage Site. It was under the Danish, German, Swedish and Russians.
Tallinn, Estonia’s capital on the Baltic Sea, is the country’s cultural hub. It retains its walled, cobblestoned Old Town, home to cafes and shops, as well as Kiek in de Kök, a 15th-century defensive tower. Its Gothic Town Hall, built in the 13th century and with a 64m-high tower, sits in historic Tallinn’s main square. St. Nicholas Church is a 13th-century landmark exhibiting ecclesiastical art.
