This is a classical one-week travel itinerary that brings you to all the major cultural sites of the Baltic States. On an international scale, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania are tiny and most of the exciting places are situated within a short driving distance. All Baltic States are green, affordable and still less touristic than other European countries. Although many people confuse the three Baltic States, there are significant differences between them and their capitals, all included into the UNESCO World Heritage List:
  • Vilnius Old Town with outstanding examples of the last vivid flash of Baroque in Europe.
  • Fascinating art nouveau architecture in Riga.
  • Cozy, fairytale-like Tallinn - one of the best-preserved medieval towns in the world.
  • Venture outside the capitals to see some extraordinary sites: the town on water, Trakai, the Hill of Crosses with more than 100,000 wooden crosses.
  • Relax in Jurmala - Latvian seaside resort and relax in possibly the best white, sandy beach in Northern Europe.
