There are highlights throughout this journey though; away from Russia’s shores, you’ll also get discover the historical and cultural treasures of destinations in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Explore Tallinn – the picturesque Estonian capital – to discover its former Soviet prison and UNESCO-listed Old Town, where medieval castles, cathedrals and churches await. You visit the Latvian capital too, with time to visit the Museum of Occupations, see ‘Stalin’s birthday cake’ and the aviation museum in Riga, while important Soviet landmarks – including Plokštinė missile base – await in Klaipėda, Lithuania’s third-largest city. Speaking of Soviet sites, there are plenty to discover on the remote Estonian island of Saaremaa, which is also home to centuries-old monuments and landmarks such as the 14th century-built Kuressaare Castle.
