Take an eye-opening journey to Warsaw, Poland and the capitals of the Baltics—Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia—for a new and distinct European travel experience. “Warsaw is fantastic,” says Rick Steves, with an amazing food scene, thoughtful world-class museums and Chopin. Nearly destroyed during WWII, Warsaw is rebuilt and revitalized with a pretty-as-a-postcard Old Town. “United by geography and a common history, yet proudly unique, [Vilnius, Riga and Tallinn] combine tightly packed, picturesque old towns with first-class museums, hip neighborhoods, stylish bars and a burgeoning food scene,” Rough Guides. These city centers are UNESCO-listed medieval towns with preserved, historic architecture, each embracing a different style. Begin in Vilnius—a Baroque masterpiece that has a young and bohemian atmosphere. In Riga we'll discover the largest collection of Art Nouveau buildings in the world and an eclectic central market, housed in and around former zeppelin hangars—it's one of the largest markets in Europe! Tallinn evokes a fairy-tale charm with its center surrounded by medieval town walls and watch towers.
