Adventure awaits

The Baltic Overland Adventure roves the countryside and urban centres of four distinct nations: the three independent Baltic countries - Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania - and Kaliningrad, an exclave of Russia. They form a mosaic of countries ruled in early years by the traders of the Hanseatic League and later occupied by the Soviet Union at the end of the Second World War. The Baltic countries were the first to re-establish independence from the U.S.S.R. Visit Tallinn, Estonia's capital, with winding cobbled streets, red roofs and turreted fortress wall all on the UNESCO World Heritage List. See Curonian Spit, a strange and beautiful landscape of corrugated dunes, little villages and forests. Explore 14th century Trakai Castle, the Brick Gothic residence of the Lithuanian Grand Dukes. And more. http://www.mircorp.com/trip/kaliningrad-the-baltics/
