Still the best guide to the Baltic states for those touring these cultural capitals, this guide excels in packing all the essentials travelers need into one trim book.

A section on excursions out from each center expands the possibilities further for visitors, and includes gems such as the medieval Trakai castle on the outskirts of Vilnius, the Latvian seaside resort of Jurmala, and the year-round delight and tranquility of the Kadriog Park near Tallinn.
>City information including sightseeing and walking tours plus half-day excursions from each city
>Background material including history and culture
>Essential words and phrases in four languages
