Classic Eastern Europe Itineraries

Eastern Europe in 1 Week

One week in Eastern Europe isn’t nearly enough time to explore the entire region, but it is enough time to get a good taste of a few countries. Exploring the Baltic countries is a great introduction to Eastern European culture and history.

Day 1, Tallinn, Estonia: Spend your first day in the Baltics exploring Tallinn’s Town Hall Square and Old Town. Check out the handicrafts market in the Square during summer, or walk along the ancient city wall bordering the city.  

Days 2 and 3, Riga, Latvia: Walk around Riga admiring the art-nouveau architecture. Stop by the Three Brother, a set of three houses on Mazā Pils Street dating back to the 15th century.

Days 4 and 5, Vilnius, Lithuania: Visit some of the 28 catholic churches in Riga. Climb up to the campanile of St. John’s church for the highest point in town, and a stunning view of the city below. Rent a boat to explore the green lakes of Verkiai Regional Park.

Days 6 and 7, Warsaw, Poland: Stroll through Old Town, stopping to shop artisanal goods from stalls in the town square before heading the the Royal Castle. If the season is right, take in a free concert on the banks of the Vistula River.

Great Holiday August 2016


Highlights of Albania

This was a brilliant holiday in a little known country. A lot of ground was coveered and our Albanian guide was excellent. Hotels and all our meals were very good The whole experience was very positive.
The visit to the churches in Voskopoje

Ilir the leader was fantastic. However on reflection, I realise that he did not ask to see anyone's insurance details which could potentiall have caused problems in the event of mishaps or accidents. The bus driver was amazing. Nothing was too much trouble and he drove very considerately. A bigger bus would have been better since we were 20 in a 20 seater and finding room for the luggage was a problem every day. I was slightly annoyed by some of the group who always hogged the best seats. The older perhaps less mobile people were often squashed into the back seats where it go very hot.

Go for it.
