At a Glance

Few places know “bounce-back” like the Baltic States. For almost 50 years, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania hid under the shadow of Soviet rule until declaring their independence in 1990. Slowly but surely, each regained its footing and developed its own identity. With local experts, explore each of the Baltics’ colorful capitals and learn what makes them extraordinary. In Estonia, discover the Baltics’ oldest capital, Tallinn. Latvia’s Riga, the largest of the three capitals, is a complete architectural treasure. Last but not least, venture to Lithuania and explore Vilnius, one of Europe’s cultural gems. Experience the welcoming spirit of the locals in all three capitals on the learning adventure of a lifetime.
