Day 5 – Tuesday 29 June 2021 – Warnemunde – Germany – in port from 7 am to 9 pm -

Today we berth in Warnemunde, the port for Berlin. While the drive to Berlin takes 3 hours, a visit
to Berlin is still an attractive option particularly for those who have never visited Berlin. Berlin is one
of the most interesting cities in Europe with a famous history and many fascinating sights,
particularly since the fall of the Berlin Wall and subsequent reunification of East and West Germany.

War with Russia in late 1939/early 1940 when Finland put up a heroic defence following its
unprovoked attack by Russia.
