Baltic States

The Baltic States are Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. These countries are very different despite the fact that they are very closely located and are often used within the same context. These countries are famous for their virgin nature, amber, and medieval towns. The Baltic States today are dynamically developing countries with young population and great opportunities for tourism. The Baltic States offer tours and excursions of all kinds.

 

The most beautiful place in Estonia is its capital, Tallinn, which is an old city surrounded by a medieval wall with several cathedrals and churches, romantic narrow streets, and a harbour. Estonia is an ideal place for a vacation in the country in the woods.


The capital of Latvia, Riga, is the largest city of the Baltic with an approximate population of 800 000 people. Riga is known for its architecture and broad boulevards. The rural regions of Latvia are similar to that in Scandinavia, but much more pleasing. In Latvia you will have a chance to see the long coastline of the Baltic Sea with its seaport towns such as Liepaja and Ventspils, and seaside resorts such as Yurmala. In the rural areas there are small towns often standing there since the medieval times. 

 

Most of tours to Lithuania begin with its capital, Vilnius, which is also known as Northern Jerusalem because of its numerous churches. In the old city which is one of the largest in Central Europe and is a part of UNESCO heritage one can see the signs of Polish, Jewish, and Lithuanian cultures.


Helsinki - Capital and the largest city in Finland. Helsinki was founded in 1550, as a "rival" to the Hanseatic city of Reval (today known as Tallinn, the capital of Estonia) by King Gustav I of Sweden. In the streets of Helsinki we can see a variety of neoclassical buildings - dating, for the most part, from the early nineteenth century - with a definitely Russian style that are nothing more than a living part of the heritage left by Tsar Alexander I when he wanted make this city a place with strong reminiscences of Saint Petersburg.
