An informative and exciting tour that will enlighten you on the history and mystery behind Baltic cities.
Our journey begins in Krakow. This most elegant Polish city has a splendid old town that – miraculously – escaped war destruction. It is the other side of the cultured and frenzied Warsaw, the capital of the country over the last five centuries, which seems to have survived everything, even the Apocalypse that it experienced during the Second World War. Vilnius, Riga and Tallinn, the capitols of the three small Baltic republics, are very different cities: the first is primarily baroque, the second modernist, and the third medieval. The landscape that embraces them is wooded, dotted with blue lakes, farmland or maritime beaches. Then you arrive in Sankt Petersburg, a symbolic city par excellence where each building is an attraction in itself and its canals, bridges, museums, and the imposing Neva River. To finish our journey, we travel by train to the capital of the Russian Federation. Few cities experienced as much change in the last century as Moscow. A modest city that became the center of a modernist and futuristic utopia and expanded majestically and monumentally. Today, the second-largest city in Europe is a fascinating megalopolis, with palpable energy in the streets and the people.
