 Autumn Visit to the Cultural Capitals of the Baltics

Monday October 7th to Saturday, October 12th

A wonderful opportunity to see the cities of Riga and Tallin  -  both with a wealth of history and culture to explore.   Despite their histories as major centres of the Hanseatic League and following years of foreign domination, both cities have retained their individuality and unique architecture.   Riga of course has a fine collection of Art Nouveau architecture and Tallinn – an old Hanseatic port – has a beautifully preserved medieval town centre, as well as many iconic buildings revealing the influence of Sweden, Germany and Russia over the centuries.

 The cost of the visit is £1,190 per person sharing a twin/double room, with a single supplement of £185.

 Full details of the itinerary and booking forms will be available at our meeting on Thursday, February 28th, but Sue Dennis would be happy to forward you details before then if you so request.
