The restoration of independence in 1991 in these three states was a happy outcome of the demise of the Soviet Union. Of all the fragments of that former super-power, the Baltic States are perhaps the countries with the brightest future. Though geographically attached, these nations are singularly different - especially when viewed along the lines of ethnicity, language, historical development and religion. The Estonians are of Finno-Ugric origin and their language has nothing in common with their Latvian or Russian neighbours. Lithuanian history in recent times was linked with Catholic Poland, whereas Estonia and Latvia were early recipients of Protestantism. In the 18th century these states succumbed to the Russian Empire, only to regain independence after the First World War. Absorbed by first Russia and then Germany during World War II, they suffered under the Soviet regime following the war. Surprise ranks high among visitors today - surprise that there is so much of interest and beauty, and surprise that the Iron Curtain was so dense as to hide the richness of those societies. Indeed most of us have much to learn about these countries and their heritage. We are very pleased to offer this destination after the wonderful success of our previous journeys there. Come with us as we discover the charms and warmth of the beautiful Baltic States.
