Hav'n Canal is in the picture on the left and Tivoli Gardens entrance on the right
Europe is known for the many people who ride bikes but here in Copenhagen, it was shocking the amount of bikes.
On the left, Gifeon Fountain and on the right Little Mermaid Statue.
On the left is the statue of Hans Christainsen while the other two photos show Steples on some of the church/buildings. The first one has a staircase going around it while the other one is of dragons with their tales intertwined.
In Senate Square you will find this Lutheran Cathedral in the right photo, that had a massive organ inside and chandeliers. The center of the square is where this statue of Russian Czar Alexander II stands.
Another church that stands out in Helsinki is this German Protestant Church as it sits up on a hillside to be seen by most of Helsinki. On the right is the Sibelius Monument which caused a huge amout of controversy. It ended up having to have his face added.
From the canal boat ride we took, we got a great view of Menshikov Palace, built for Alexander Menshikov - good friend to Peter the Great and made a Duke in 1707. He was later exciled from Russia. On the right, also viewed from the boat ride is The Admiralty Building - one of the 1st bldgs built orignally for a dockyard. Later as Naval Headquarters and now as the Naval College.
On the left is The Narva Gate. Gates of entrance monuments were usually built for when you enter an area. This was built to commemorate the victory of Russia. Most are built to show a sign of victory also. As we headed towards the summer palace, I took a great photo of this cathedral.
Our tour took us to the town of Gdansk. Along with Gdynia and Sopot they are known as the tri-cities. Gdansk had an old town that took on more of a German charm. A number one tourist spot kept old town filled from building to building.
Thanks for taking yet another adventure with us. This was truly an experience we will never forget and I do hope you enjoyed it. From Denmark to Russia to Norway, wow what a vast difference in what you see. This trip was very hard to cut down to a few pictures but hope you didn't get to bored. Russia just has so much there and every country had a lot to offer. Thanks again for taking a trip along the Baltic Sea with Bob and I.
