Holidays In The Baltics

If you’re looking to take on a trip in or around the Baltic area, then please read our guide below for more information.

The Baltic area consists of countries that have shorelines along the Baltic Sea, and they are:

  • Denmark
  • Estonia
  • Latvia
  • Finland
  • Germany
  • Lithuania
  • Poland
  • Russia
  • Sweden

One of the best ways of travelling to see these countries is via a cruise.  There are many cruise providers who excel at providing a great service when it comes to visiting these countries, and you can find them all online.  

Being on a cruise will allow you to unwind and relax, whilst the crew do all of the hard work in getting you to the locations, and thus allowing you to prepare for an amazing trip to take in a variety of towns and cities across the many Baltic area nations.

Another method that could be enlightening for you is driving.  What is better than driving through country after country, being able to take in the amazing scenery you will encounter, and being able to immerse yourself in all of the different cultures from behind the wheel of your own vehicle?!

Obviously the Baltics have a lot of interesting places of note that you can visit, so below we have made a list of two or three interesting places for each country that you can try to cram in to your visit:

  • Denmark – The Original Legoland in Billund, The Oresund Bridge which connects Denmark to Sweden, and The Kronborg Castle
  • Estonia – The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in Tallinn, Kadriorg Palace, Laheema National Park
  • Latvia – Rundale Palace and Museum, Old Town Riga, Ventspils
  • Finland – The National Museum of Finland, Temppeliauklo Church, Suomenlinna (which is a UNESCO – listed 18th century sea fortress)
