12-day roundtrip

Poland, country of central Europe; bounded by seven nations, among them with Lithuania one of the Baltic States. This northeastern region of Europe containing the three countries: Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia, with a long history and diverse culture between regions.

Today: Lithuania – an expanding economic market, it has some of the best natural countryside in Europe. Latvia – a predominately Protestant country, its forefathers were of Germanic background; Estonia – the most Nordic of the three Baltic countries, with linguistic connections to Finland.

This is a land of crumbling castles, restored palaces, soaring dunes, enchanting forests and magical lakes – a trip to Poland as well as the Baltic States proves that dreams come true…
