"Crossing was good, food well, bad signs "
Reviewed 24 September 2013 by Anonymous
The crossing was on time, and very quiet. The equipment is very simple, but adequate. The food was not my case but that's a matter of taste. Unfortunately Very bad was the journey to the port of Travemünde, because, unfortunately, lack of signage for Baltic (you drive direction Finland, Norway ...) Unfortunately, the support provided by Stena in this point too low. a detailed directions there is not only an inaccurate Google Maps view. As should be between Travemünde and the correct port about 7 KM a timely arrival to be scheduled. Conclusion: Overall, a nice place to ride, deductions when " trappings "

Travemünde is a borough of Lübeck located at the mouth of river Trave into Lübeck Bay. Travemünde arose out of a stronghold placed here by Henry the Lion, Duke of Saxony, in the 12th century to guard the mouth of the Trave, and the Danes subsequently strengthened it. It became a town in 1317 and in 1329 passed into the possession of the free city of Lübeck, to which it has since belonged. Its fortifications were demolished in 1807. Travemünde is an old seaside resort (since 1802) and Germany's largest ferry port on the Baltic Sea with destinations to Sweden, Finland and other baltic countries.
Annually, some 1 million passengers pass through the Travemünde Skandinavienkai ferry terminal as the starting point or destination of their trip across the Baltic Sea. The terminal is also the contact point for a number of impressive cruise ships from all over the world.
Liepaja is a city in western Latvia on the Baltic sea. It is the third-largest city of Latvia and an important ice-free port. Liepaja was founded by Curonian fishermen and was first known by the name Lyva in 1253. The Livonian Order under the aegis of the Teutonic Order established the settlement as the town of Libau in 1263. The name Liepaja began to increase in usage after 1560. In 1625 Duke Friedrich Kettler of Courland granted the town city rights, which were affirmed by King Sigismund III of Poland in 1626.
Liepaja and Courland passed to the control of Imperial Russia in 1795 during the Partitions of Poland. The city became a major port on the Baltic Sea for the Russians, and was a central point of embarcation for immigrants travelling to the United States. For a brief time in 1919 when most Latvian territory was occupied by Bolsheviks, Liepaja was a provisional seat of government for the country.
