Some of the places...

Small map
 
Everything started from Saint Petersburg. We boarded a big "River-liner" similar to this one. The cruise took us through Karelia to the Lakes Ladoga and Onega and on the river Svir. Click on the map for a bigger picture. See Finland and Sweden? See Moscow? Now you have located the area.
I have another page with more maps. The latitude of St Petersburg is a little North of that of Stockholm, 60°N. And we went further North. By end June, there was only about two hours of night, and it was not very dark.

MS Saint PetersburgHere is a small picture of the M/S Saint Petersburg (from their web page) and its characteristics:

Map of the ship
You see from the shape of the hull that this large ship is not an ocean-going liner: the freeboard is very low.

The music you are listening to if you have clicked on the small icon at the top of this page is the introduction to the second act of Peter Tchaikovski's "Swan Lake".
