Are you ready for an adventure through the Baltic states? These three countries – Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania – offer a unique blend of historical landmarks, natural beauty, and cultural experiences. Here are five things to add to your itinerary for a road trip through the Baltics.

Explore the Old Towns of Tallinn and Riga

The old town areas of Tallinn, Estonia, and Riga, Latvia, are two of the most well-preserved medieval cities in Europe. Both are UNESCO World Heritage sites and offer a glimpse into the past with their cobbled streets, Gothic architecture, and ancient walls. Take a stroll through Tallinn’s old town and visit Toompea Hill, where you’ll find the Tallinn City Museum, the Parliament of Estonia, and the famous Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. Riga’s old town is equally charming, with its iconic Blackheads House and the beautiful St. Peter’s Church.

Discover the Beauty of the Baltic Sea

The Baltic Sea is a stunning natural wonder that borders the three Baltic states. Take a ferry or a boat tour to admire the beautiful coastline and see the scenic islands dotting the sea. You can also visit the popular resort town of Jurmala, Latvia, for its long sandy beaches and colorful wooden houses and the Curonian Spit. 

Visit the Hill of Crosses in Lithuania

The Hill of Crosses is a unique and meaningful landmark in Lithuania. Located near the city of Siauliai, this hill is covered in hundreds of thousands of crosses, each symbolizing a prayer or a wish. Whether you’re religious or not, the Hill of Crosses is a powerful reminder of the human spirit and the resilience of the Lithuanian people.

Indulge in Local Cuisine

Each of the Baltic states has its own unique culinary traditions, so be sure to try the local food as you travel through the region. Estonia is known for its hearty meat dishes, such as black pudding and smoked ham, while Latvia is famous for its smoked fish and delicious pastries. Lithuania, on the other hand, is known for its traditional dishes such as cepelinai (potato dumplings) and saltibarsciai (cold beetroot soup).

Take a Hike in the Natural Parks

The Baltic states are home to some of the most stunning natural parks in Europe, including the Gauja National Park in Latvia and the Žemaitija National Park in Lithuania. Take a hike through the forests and rolling hills, bog shoe & canoe in Lahemma National Park and enjoy the stunning scenery. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit the famous Parnidis Dune, a 60-meter high sand dune on the Baltic coast in Lithuania.

A road trip through the Baltics is the perfect opportunity to explore these unique and beautiful countries. With its rich history, stunning natural beauty, and delicious food, a trip through the Baltics is sure to leave you with memories that will last a lifetime.
