Baltic Capitals

Four countries, four capitals, and seven centuries of architectural styles, in their street-scenes and monuments, form the focus of this intriguing Baltics tour, as we travel to Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, and take the ferry across the Gulf for a final day in Finland

Starting in the southernmost of the states, the tour is immediately immersed in the easy tempo and assorted architecture of Lithuania’s capital, Vilnius. Renaissance and neo-classical façades are teamed with 20th century buildings set on Gothic cellars, and the big Baroque Old Town is a beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site. After a detour to Trakai’s Island Castle, its round towers reflected in the waters of Lake Galvé, the tour makes its way across the Latvian border to Riga. The largest city of the Baltics, it straddles the Daugava River with cobbled lanes and soaring spires in its medieval Old Town, a stunning spread of art-nouveau architecture in its city centre, and monuments recalling its uneasy past. From here, the route continues into Estonia to Tallinn, on the north shore. The busy port city of Soviet-style buildings turns into a fairytale at Toompea Hill, the heart and soul of the capital. This is its medieval town, oozing old-world charm from its city walls to its Baroque splendour, colour-washed houses, and skyline of turrets and domes. Crossing the Gulf of Finland to its compact capital, Helsinki completes the tour where urban melds with nature, and neo-classical grandeur meets cutting-edge design.
