I'm planning to visit Estonia,Latvia and Lithuania this March and April..however I got a few problems:
I'm planning to start at Lithuania and then Latvia, then to Tallinn, if possible I might go to Helsinki as well. Is this a good idea?
Is Riga enough to see Latvia, any small cities around Riga that are worth going(This question applies to all three cities)?
and If I can only go to one place in Lithuania, Kaunas or Vilnius? On Paper Kaunas looks more interesting(and possibly I can get direct flight from London)
Almost forgot. If I am going there for 2 weeks. 3 days for each city. Will that be enough?
Big Kudos to all fellow TFers for answering my questions
Hey! I lived in Estonia and have been quite a few times to all countries, so will gladly help out. First of all, I wouldn't go to Helsinki, you'll have a busy schedule just seeing the Baltics alone, and there are more interesting places than Helsinki to be honest.
As for Latvia, you have to go see Ventspils at least as well, and there's Jurmala by the beach which could be fun, and also check out Liepaja.
If you only want to see 1 place in Lithuania (which you shouldn't do), go go Vilnius. Kaunas is really nice aswell, but the old town of Vilnius is gorgeous. But you should also go to the beach side in Lithuania. Klaipeda and Palanga are well worth the visit.
And try to go longer than 2 weeks, hehe. In Estonia there's, besides the drop dead gorgeous Tallinn, Pärnu to see, Viljandi is fun, Tartu is a must (that's where I lived), Kuressaare, Haapsalu is nice and Narva is interesting aswell. You should check out these cities and see what looks most interesting to you.
If you need any help feel free to pm me!
