Ports

Pori is a city in Western Finland, near the Gulf of Bothnia, established in the XVI century. Visit the Pori Art Museum and the Juselius Mausoleum or relax on a nearby sandy beach - Yyteri. The Satakunnan Museo has, among others, Viking skis and indoors market Kauppahalli offers snacks, fresh produce and local specialities.

Kaliningrad is the main town of the Kaliningrad Oblast, a Russian enclave between Poland and Lithuania. The strategic location on the Baltic Sea coast resulted in many battles fought over the city, as well as its long maritime traditions. Discover the B-413 Submarine Museum and scientific research vessel "Vityaz" - both part of the Museum of the World Ocean. Visit the Königsberg Cathedral, dating back to Prussian times, and walk around the city to take in the unique mix of architectural designs.
