If someone told you there is nothing special about the Baltics – they must have lied to you very badly or never visited this magical land! Baltics are so special and welcoming that after our visit there all we can do is regret not having visited them earlier. To fix this mistake, we decided to describe our road trip through the three countries, give you some tips on its destinations and share our travel experiences.
We find very hard not to love the green forests, charming old towns and friendly people. Or be enchanted…
Vilnius, Lithuania | Trakai, Lithuania | Klaipėda, Lithuania | Nida, Lithuania | Šiauliai, Lithuania | Jūrmala, Latvia | Riga, Latvia | Pärnu, Estonia | Tallinn, Estonia | Viru raba, Estonia | Vainupea, Estonia | Cēsis, Latvia
Day 01: Arrived in Vilnius ~~ We got an upgrade from the rent a car company for free and the car was brand new – only 2000 Km 🏎 🏎 🏎
Day 03: The Curonian Spit ~~ Our goal was accomplished thanks to the 5-minute ferry ride and the endless beach and sand dunes. How can you not enjoy the shade of millions of trees? 🙂 🌳🌲🌳🌲🌳🌲🏖
Day 04: Jūrmala ~~ Late night sunset on the beach, but before that a new friendship was born in Šiauliai. While “riding” the huge bike with a great chocolate in our hands, we felt like small innocent children. 🌅🌅🌅🍷🍷🍷
Day 05: Riga ~~ An old town gourmet walks, green parks and mirror effect photo on the Pilsetas kanal. 🌉🍽🍵🍲🍮
Day 06: Tallinn ~~ After the peaceful and empty Pärnu, the magic was with us when we drove across a pedestrian street by mistake. The ovations and applause of the pedestrians weren’t motivational but more embarrassing. 🌆🌆🌆🏰🏰🏰
Day 07: Lahemaa National Park ~~ Old fishermen’s village visit and a taste of bog walking, such calm and green scenery all over the park. 🎣🌿🎣🌿🎣🌿
Day 08: Vilnius ~~ 700+ kilometers drive for the day, happy that we had a great stop with dancing experience among the medieval walls of Cēsis. 💃🏻💃🏼💃🏻💃🏼💃🏻💃🏼
After a 2000 kilometers drive and a bit less on foot 🙂 we are closing our eyes for a short sleep before leaving these beautiful countries. We stopped by Malmö, Sweden and Copenhagen, Denmark for two days before getting back home.
We are already planning our next travels to the Baltics – please share with us any cool places, things to do and people to meet. We will be grateful and promise to share more from our future journeys!
And here are some really cool ideas for cities from the former USSR to visit. Some we have already visited, but some we’ll put on the itinerary for our next road trip.
