Baltic Capitals - 2020
Explore the distinctive heritage and architectural styles of the capitals and royal residences of Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Finland
This Baltic beauty is renowned for its Baroque architecture, is adorned with dense forests and glittering lakes, and is home to Vilnius, whose Old Town is Europe’s largest. Lithuania holidays with Jules Verne open visitors’ eyes to cultural gems unseen by so many. Immerse yourself in one of the world’s most stunning locations when you book Lithuania escorted tours with us.
As well as fine Baroque architecture, you’ll also find an impressive array of Gothic, Renaissance and classical examples, particularly in the capital, Vilnius – just one of the many celebrated and protected UNESCO World Heritage sites in the country. Here, on one of our trips to Lithuania, you’ll also discover the former KGB building, which now houses a museum telling the story of the Stalin and Soviet Union regimes. A tour of this town gives guests an insight not only into life in ancient Lithuania but also its recent past and struggles during life behind the Iron Curtain.
Today, Vilnius offers tourists an abundance of narrow, winding streets to explore, cosy cafés to enjoy and splendid restaurants where you can sample some tasty national specialities, such as black bread, cold beetroot soup and the delicious potato dumplings known as Cepelinai.
Explore this largely forgotten treasure on the Baltic coast for sights, sounds and experiences that can never be replicated anywhere else in the world.
Whatever kind of weather you are chasing, Lithuania has it all. To the west of this beautiful country, the coast boasts a lovely maritime climate, perfect if you like to feel the sun on your face and the wind through your hair. Alternatively, the hinterland to the east, has a very continental climate, the perfect weather for many.
Planned to perfection, with over 40 years’ experience in the industry, you can rest assured that your next Lithuania trip will be one to remember. Allowing you to enjoy a more personalised experience; our experts will be on hand for the duration of your trip to answer any questions you may have about the local culture, cuisine, architecture and more.
