Founded over 800 years ago, Riga is the largest and the most cosmopolitan of the three Baltic capitals. It is the unrivaled center of the country’s cultural and economic life.

Riga is also an architectural treasure: medieval church spires dominate the Old Town, while early 20th c. Art Nouveau masterpieces line city’s newer streets. Riga has one of the largest collections of Art Nouveau buildings in the whole of Europe.
A walking tour of the Old Town - a wealth of historic buildings - includes Riga Castle, the Dome Cathedral, St. Peter’s Church, the Swedish Gate, the Three Brothers, the Large and Small Guilds and the Freedom Monument. Afternoon is reserved for an optional visit to Jurmala, the vibrant Latvian sea resort famous for its wooden architecture and sandy beaches

DAY 2     SAT      TALLINN
Tallinn has an irresistible blend of Eastern European and Nordic traits. And it still remains loyal to the fairy tale charms of its Old Town. In summer the medieval Old Town is busy with its many shops, galleries, souvenir markets, outdoor cafés and restaurants.

The sightseeing tour takes you around 2.5 km long medieval city walls and into the Old Town where you see Toompea Castle, the Dome Church, Alexander Nevsky Cathedral and medieval Old Town Hall. In the afternoon you might join an optional tour to Kadriorg Park and visit the Kadriorg Palace with its beautiful art collection

In the morning we take the hydrofoil from Tallinn to Helsinki (approx 2 hrs journey, 85 km by sea). Enjoy a refreshing tour along the Finnish Archipelago before you arrive in Helsinki. Transfer to Glo Art Hotel **** or similar, for a 2 nights' stay. The balance of the day is free to explore this scenic harbor city for the latest in Finnish design, and home to hard-partying night owls

DAY 4     MON     HELSINKI
Helsinki, often called 'the Daughter of the Baltic', is truly located at the crossroads of Western and Eastern culture. This is reflected everywhere in this green and lively Finnish capital.

A sightseeing tour takes you around the harbors, up the central Mannerheim Street, by the Parliament Building, the Finlandia Hall, the Sibelius Monument and for a visit of the famous Church-in-the-Rock.

Helsinki occupies a peninsula, surrounded by an archipelago of islands. This makes the city especially attractive. Make sure that you stop at city’s central Market square. It sits right by the passenger harbour in the old part of town. It is an amazingly lively forum for selling fish fresh off the boats, as well as other fresh garden produce and seasonal berries

DAY 5     TUE     HELSINKI - ST. PETERSBURG
