Baltic States

Discover places of historical interest and natural beauty of the Baltic countries!

Our thematic travels are designed to allow maximum exposure

to the people, culture, history, art, and nature of the Baltic countries:

Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania.

 

The Baltics are among the few world countries where natural ecosystems, hardly affected by man, are still abundant. The climatic and geographic diversity accounts for the many national parks in the Baltic region, offering fascinating divergence of landscape, flora and fauna. Discover the scenery where enchanting lowland plains interchange with hillocks and river valleys, lake districts and islands, wealth of unspoilt natural landscapes of forests and meadows.

But these states can proud themselves not only in rich and flourishing natural sights, but also in cultural and historical heritage of various historic periods and former rulers, manifestations of which one can find in urban development styles, architecture, clothing and traditions.

Get to know the hidden gems of these historic farmer and merchant cultures! The Baltic states offer numerous possibilities no matter what the aim of the trip - business, leisure, adventure, education or a bit of everything.

 

Estonia

A country of small size, but many islands (about 1500), rivers, cultural and natural wonders. Estonian capital Tallinn, whose Old Town surrounded by a fortification wall, is one of the best preserved medieval cities in Europe

In the Western part one can discover the many Estonian archipelago islands with their characteristic wooden windmills and log houses with thatched roofs, the juniper groves, white sandy beaches, and numerous recreation centres.

In the North of Estonia dolomite steep banks, many waterfalls and white sand beaches adorn the landscapes.

In the Eastern part one can travel along the seemingly endless coasts of  lake Peipus and try the famous smoked fish and cucumbers of the region.

Southern Estonia however offers a mix of hillocks, nature parks, charming manors and grand palaces.

 

Latvia

The nation that sings - this is how sometimes people call Latvians, the nation that gathers together every four years for the grand Song and Dance festival; the nation that is still so close to nature that many families still carry the last names of birds, animals and trees; the nation that every spring goes to their own or friends' owned forests for birch sap, every summer and autumn flock to the forests for berries and mushrooms; the nation whose national sports are hockey and basketball (Latvia is the country that Kristaps Porzingis calls home).

Here one will find the most northerly located outdoor vineyard in Europe, the widest waterfall in Europe (where one can see flying fish, as well!) and possibly the widest range of Art Nouveau buildings.

Come to Latvia to get acquainted with Latvian unique traditional culture, as well as world class modern culture - opera, theatre, world renowned choirs and symphonic orchestra.

Take a chance to lie in the 500 km of Latvian beaches, most of which are white sandy beaches, hike along the hilly and picturesque lanscapes or visit one of the numerous craftsmen to learn about (and try!) their trade. Look into the exciting world of Latvian Craft beer or the life of a fisherman in one of the small fishing villages along the coast.

 

Lithuania

Uncover the diverse Lithuanian mentality with its brightest characteristic - self-concsiousness and the hospitality and tolerance towards curious travellers that arises from it. 

Almost in every populated place in Lithuania one can find peculiar craftsmen, thanks to whom Lithuania is now taking pride in wooden and stone sculptures decorating many manor yards, rural landscapes and cities, and telling the stories of Lithuanian historical heroes and their quite close relationship with Christian religion.

Discover the shimmer of royalty that once were considered the elite of Lithuania and the region and are known far beyond the Baltic borders nowadays - the Radziwiłł or the Tiškevičiai families - in their heritage.

Marvel upon the Catacombs of the rulers, the Gediminas tower and the flamboyant gothic architecture in Vilnus, the grandeur of Trakai castle, the picturesque Old Town of Kernavė city, situated in the bends of Neris river, and the palaces of Nemunas river valley.
