  • Days Details
  • 1 Arrival Vilnius, Lithuania
  • 2 Vilnius to Klaipeda stopping off at Trakai Bizarre, beautiful and bewitching, Vilnius is a fascinating mix of Old Town charm, fairy-tale baroque splendour, and an underlying uniqueness that creates it soul. Unesco has declared this, Europe’s largest baroque old town, a World Heritage site. There are more than 1,200 medieval buildings and 48 churches in the city. See some of these in the panoramic sightseeing tour that also takes in the Old Town and Vilnius Cathedral, Gediminas Tower, Peter and Paul Church, St. Anne’s Church, the Old University and the Gates of Dawn. Trakai Island Castle is the only Eastern European castle that has been built on an island. Surrounded by the waters of Lake Galve this well-preserved 15th century castle held great strategic importance in its time. Arrive at Klaipeda late afternoon.
  • 3 Klaipeda and the Curonian Spit Klaipeda is close to the fragile spit of Curonia – a thin, 100km stretch of land set between the Baltic Sea and the Curonian Lagoon and dotted with small fishing villages, beautiful pine forests and endless sand dunes. First stop is Witches’ Hill in Juodkrante and a sculpture trail where devils, witches, ghouls and other fantastical and grotesque wooden carvings appear from all angles and range from the fairytale to the nightmare. At the small village of Nida, climb a flight of steep steps from the promenade to German writer Thomas Mann’s former Baltic villa, which is now a museum. Back at Klaipeda – Lithuania’s only port of call for Titanic-sized cruise ships – wander through the Old Town and dine at one of the riverside restaurants.
  • 4 Klaipeda sightseeing and attractions and onto Riga, Latvia Klaipeda first became a part of Lithuania in 1923 and had a long history as a German town call Memel. Enjoy a short sightseeing tour through the cobblestone streets of the Old Town and past old guild houses, and see the German influenced Theatre Square, and the impressive Aennchen von Tharau Fountain. Continue to the Samogitia National Park and enjoy a walking tour around picturesque Lake Plateliai, 9thbiggest lake in Lithuania and surrounded by rolling green hills. Enroute to Riga the tour stops at one of the holiest sites of Catholic Lithuania – Siauliai and Cross Hills where thousands upon thousands of crosses dot the landscape. Large and tiny, expensive and cheap, wood and metal, these crosses are devotional and finely carved folk-art master pieces, and some are memorials and tagged with flowers. This site has inspired countless pilgrimages. Arrive Riga early evening and enjoy an organ concert at Riga’s enormous dome Cathedral, founded in 1211, and the largest church in the Baltic.
  • 5 Riga sightseeing and attractions Riga is overflowing with architectural gems and architectural styles. It was founded in 1201 by the German bishop Albert and is the largest of the three Baltic capitals. Take a walking tour of the Old Town past Riga Castle, the Dome Cathedral, St. Peter’s Church, the Swedish Gate, the Three Brothers, the Large and Small Guilds, and the Freedom Monument towering above the city between Old and Central Riga. Wander through the Central Market – visiting Riga without seeing the central market is like going to Paris and not stopping at the Louvre. Visit the vibrant Latvian sea resort of Jurmala, famous for its wooden architecture and sandy beaches.
  • 6 Riga to Tallinn, Estonia Travelling along the beautiful Estonian coast to the summer resort of Parnu with its white sandy beaches, shallow waters and rich cultural scene. Continuing through the land of forests of north Estonia and arriving in Tallinn – a charming blend of medieval tranquillity and modern urban life – in time for a walk through the Old Town, famous for its authentic Hanseatic architecture.
  • 7 Tallinn, sightseeing and attractions Take a sightseeing tour around the medieval city walls. Take in Toompea Castle, the Dome Church, and the Aleksand Nevsky Cathedral with its golden onion roof-tops and luxurious interiors. Kadriorg Palace is considered to be the grandest example of palace and park design in Estonian architectural history. The palace, originally an imperial summer residence has been extremely well preserved since the early 18th century. Enjoy dinner sitting under the Gothic arches of the cellar at the Pepper sack Restaurant where everything is prepared right before your eyes in the open kitchen.
