A revamped and expanded version of Bradt's Baltic Capitals, this guide recognises a shift in the nature of travel in the region. No longer limited to a Baltics itinerary covering Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius, the guide incorporates the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad, the Baltic coast from Klaipeda to Liepaja, and inland cities of Kaunas and Tartu. Whereas the Baltic states reflect western European influence, Kaliningrad an offshoot of Russia is very different: the Cyrillic alphabet remains and tourists can still see a statue of Lenin, or walk along a Revolution Road. The perfect companion, Baltic Cities details each city s historic sights, from museums to churches, together with scenic walking tours and essential details of where to eat and stay.
