Highlights of the tour:

VILNIUS (Lithuania) • RIGA (Latvia) • TALLINN (Estonia)

 

Vilnius
Vilnius

Lithuania’s capital is one of the driving forces behind the country’s great tourism industry. Boasting the largest medieval old town in central and Eastern Europe, Vilnius is increasingly popular for its warming sense of history, bewitching architectural heritage and bustling cafe culture.

Tallinn
Tallinn

Tallinn, one of Europe’s newest capitals. Its Old Town was almost untouched by war and remains perfectly preserved, yet it has a surprisingly modern, sophisticated air; this is a city looking forward as well as to its traditional, folkloric roots.

Riga
Riga

Riga, selected European Capital of Culture in 2014. Riga is one of those cities that look like a Christmas card all year round. It feels intimate in the way only a medieval city can; the buildings in Riga’s Old City look like dollhouses, the streets are narrow and cobbled, and the iron church steeple of St Peter’s is visible at almost every turn. We highly recommend joining the Sigulda sightseeing tour; Sigulda is often called the Latvian Switzerland because of the beauty of its landscape.
