Baltic
For the whole generations the Baltic Sea has been a world of trade, work and pleasures, hopes and tragedies, warfare and conflicts. People had come there from the North Sea, the Norwegian Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, or by way of rivers - the Tornionjoki, Kemijoki, Neva, Daugava, Vistula or Oder. Mystique waters, fiords, cliffs, sandy beaches, beautiful harbours, medieval cities, the Scandinavian metropolis, light houses and wild nature - all kinds of fantastic scenery. Not to mention a rich history with the Viking culture or the era of the Hanseatic League. The Baltic Sea, with all the personal memories and stories it carries is a curious region worth exploring - a charming place for travellers and summer vacationers, but sometimes life-threatening for professional sailors.

It's a mediterranean sea located between Central and Northern Europe and bordered by Sweden, Finland, Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Germany and Denmark. It’s divided into different parts: the Baltic Proper, the Gulf of Bothnia, the Gulf of Finland and the Gulf of Riga. Its western end is difficult to determine, but in general terms its waters flow on through Kattegat Bay into the Skagerrak Strait, and then merge with the North Sea. The Baltic is about an average of 55 m deep, with the maximum depth of 459 m being on the Swedish side.

Now, I’m coming back there after many years. I don’t know whether the area presents any interest at all for you, but if it does, let me take you with me and my family on our 6000 km long journey alongside its coastline.
