The Baltic States

Along with Latvia and Estonia, Lithuania comprised the three Baltic States that were taken over by Russia after WW2. After gaining their freedom when the Iron Curtain came down they are emerging economically and architecturally and becoming important tourism areas.

Vilnius

Old Town Vilnius is known for its beautiful architecture. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994.

Its Jewish influence has led to it being described as the “Jerusalem of Lita" or as Napoleon called it "The Jerusalem of the North."
