Tauck Exclusive – Evening at the Vasa Museum

Exclusive reception and dinner for Tauck guests only at Stockholm’s Vasa Museum

One of the world’s mightiest vessels when built for Sweden’s celebrated royal fleet in 1628, the ornate warship Vasa infamously sank to the bottom of Stockholm Harbor immediately upon its launch. Finally raised after more than three centuries in 1961, the well-preserved ship is now the centerpiece of the most-visited museum in Scandinavia... and will be your treasured dining companion during Tauck’s exclusive, private reception and dinner at the Vasamuseet (Vasa Museum) in Stockholm.

Early-opening visit to The Hermitage

Day 10

Privately guided early-opening visit to The State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg

Comprising a complex of six historic buildings along Palace Embankment in St. Petersburg – including the former Winter Palace, once a residence of Russia's ruling Romanov family – The State Hermitage Museum ranks among the greatest museums in the world. Although only a fraction of its vast holdings of art and artifacts – including the world’s largest collection of paintings – is on display at any one time, its exhibits encompass works from the Stone Age to the 21st century, reflecting the development of art and culture through the ages. On your privately guided, early-opening tour of this extraordinary institution, you'll enjoy a special visit to the Gold Room, whose dazzling exhibits of gold artifacts and jewelry are sure to impress.

The trip was more than I expected. Most surprising was Tallinn, Estonia. It was charming and beautiful.
