Tour Overview


This extensive 13-day exploration of the Baltic States and Russia is nothing short of a truly wonderful experience. Visit the chapel of Saint Kazimieras, located in Cathedral Square in Vilnius, Lithuania, or look up at the Gedimino Tower and admire this 14th-century defence system. A relaxing walk along the cobblestone streets of the Jewish quarter of the city might just lead us to one of the many recluse courtyards. Riga, Latvia, is located near the two majestic rivers of the Nemunas and the Neris and it has just as impressive Baroque architecture throughout. The Town Hall in the centre of the city sets the tone of ambience,as do the rolling green hills just outside the city's boundaries. Set foot in one of the many souvenir shops along the harbours of Tallinn, Estonia, and then it's off across the cold waters to Helsinki, Finland, also known as the 'Daughter of the Baltic'. This trip could not end on a better note than by visiting one of the world's most important museums, the Hermitage, and by seeing the collection of porcelain in Catherine's Chinese Palace in St Petersburg, Russia.

Testimonials


Chris S. (Nanaimo, BC, CA)

An intense and busy tour providing a lot of history about the Baltic countries

Helen B. (White Rock, BC, CA)

The combination of the three States that have regained their freedom from Soviet Russia, combined with the visit to St. Petersburg was an excellent combination for a tour. I learned a lot.
