Baltic Sail invites to visit colorful maritime festivals in several harbours.

Founded in 1996, the first festivals under the Baltic Sail umbrella took place in 1997 in Gdansk (Poland), Helsingor (Denmark), Karlskrona (Sweden) and Rostock (Germany).

Baltic Sail events are exciting international festivals for everybody, combining efforts not only to bring maritime traditions and the cultural maritime heritage to citizens and visitors but also promoting the Baltic Sea as a first class sailing resort. All festival programs offer maritime flair and a large variety of actions. Seamen’s craftsmanship, sail trips on board of lovely restored traditional ships and exhibitions take you back into cultural and maritime history of Baltic cities and regions. Sailors and visitors from all over the world are warmly welcomed to enjoy the fascinating atmosphere of the seaside locations, impressive coastlines, beautiful beaches, imposing brick churches and historical buildings in the centre of the cities.
