Hi Rick,
We are heading from Berlin up to Tallinn on our way to Finland in May.
We have not got a lot of time, as our main tour is Scandinavia. I would be interested in any comments on a route through Poland and the Baltic states.
Is there anything worth really seeing? We have been to Warsaw, found it really nice but extremely busy.
Very vague post, but thanks anyway.
Derek

Derek - there is lots worth seeing, but if you are short of time, it depends a bit on your preferences. The capitals are well worth time - Riga, Tallin and Vilnius. Tartu is also a city well worth seeing. The corunian spit is very beautiful, and not to be missed if you are nearby. you could then take in Klaipeda, which has some amazing buildings. The area around Trakai is also a not to be missed area. If you get that far - the border areas with Russia are very interesting. We travelled from Berlin to Vilnius via Gdansk. An OK route - and we would have liked some time in Gdansk but couldn't spare it because of our schedule,

Any specifics - give me a shout,

Cheers

Rick

Thanks for the reply. Going to spend a couple of days in Riga and Tallinn, will see how the time goes across Poland to see if we can fit in somewhere else. Will keep note of these other places when we have more time in the Baltic states.
