Cruises for lovers of Architecture

If you are passionate about architecture and design, if you yearn to visit some of the architectural marvels of the world, then Viking has a host of opportunities for you to tick off your wish list.

29-day Mediterranean’s Iconic Shores from Barcelona to Istanbul or v.v, starting from $19,695pp.

Admire La Sagrada Família and more of the creative architectural genius of Antoni Gaudí’s surreal works. View some of his finest work at Park Güell. Covering almost 50 acres, the park was built between 1900 and 1914 and declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984.

22-day Adriatic & Mediterranean Sojourn from Rome to Istanbul or v.v, starting from $14,495 pp

Visit the magnificent Hagia Sophia on a private tour free of crowds. Built as a cathedral—by some accounts by more than 10,000 workers—it was later converted to a mosque then a museum and now back to a mosque containing some of the world’s most beautiful mosaics and frescoes, plus runic inscriptions left by Vikings in the 10th century.

13-day Waterways of the Tsars, from Moscow to St Petersburg or v.v, starting from $7,995pp

Visit the Kizhi Pogost and the centrepiece that is the 22-domed Transfiguration Church made entirely of wood making it one of the tallest log structures in the world. According to the Russian carpentry traditions of that time, the Church was actually built without using a single nail, but instead made of scribe-fitted horizontal logs, with interlocking corners joinery.

15-day America’s Great River, St Paul to New Orleans or v.v, starting from $16,995 pp

Antebellum architecture refers to the large, elegant mansions — usually plantation homes — built in the American South during the 30 years or so before the American Civil War (1861-1865).  Explore some of the country’s famed antebellum architecture in the charming city of Natchez which celebrates its southern heritage and history through its beautifully preserved historic downtown.
