Away For Women announces an exclusive summer tour for women-only to the Baltic States over 9 nights from July 17 to July 26, 2011. Itinerary highlights include city stays in baroque Vilnius and seaside Palanga (Lithuania), art nouveau Riga (Latvia), and medieval Tallinn (Estonia).
Thriving in post-Soviet independence, the three culturally rich and diverse countries of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia are Northern Europe’s best kept secret. Though having much in common, these three countries are distinguished by different language, history, ethnic origin, and cuisine. The capital cities of Vilnius, Riga and Tallinn, each with a unique character of cultural richness and beauty, have earned all three the designation as UNESCO World Cultural Heritage sites.
July touring offers ideal weather for enjoying the outdoor Baltic Folkloric Festival that is scheduled to be hosted by Latvia this summer, although celebrations will be held throughout the entire region from June through August. The tour will take advantage of concerts and special events within each city stay as the schedule become available.
Extensive sightseeing includes the following highlights:
In Vilnius: Old Town, Cathedral Square, Church of St. Anne, Gate of Dawn, Presidential Palace, Jewish Quarter, Town Hall Square, Vilnius University, the Amber Gallery, Trakai Castle with Sailing on Lake Galve, and Pazaislis Monastery.
