Russia and the Baltics
June 2020

Discover four different parts of the former Soviet Union — the three Baltic States, and then Mother Russia itself.  In Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia explore three fascinating capital cities, each with a charming historic centre as well as evidence of a more recent and turbulent history under Soviet and Nazi occupation.  Travel between these cities through beautiful landscapes along the coast of the Baltic Sea and Gulf of Finland.  Then sample the rich cultural heritage of Imperial Russia —in magnificent St Petersburg, the first great capital of Russia, and the current capital Moscow.  Connecting these two great cities of the world is a six-night cruise through lakes, rivers and canals on a small ship.  Daily shore excursions will introduce you to cities off the beaten track, village life and showpieces of religious architecture.  A return of a very popular tour.
