Trip Overview
Uncover the cultural riches and historical intrigues of four fascinating countries on a journey across northern Poland and the Baltic states. Beginning the adventure in Poland's premier seaside hub of Gdansk, learn of the city's former shipbuilding industry and military significance during a boat ride out through Westerplatte and into the Gulf of Gdansk. See where Pope John Paul II took time out among the lakes and forests of Wigry National Park and visit a major military headquarters used during fighting for the Eastern Front. Crossing into Lithuania, spend an afternoon exploring Vilnius' old town (and kooky breakaway republic), then finish things up becoming acquainted with the lively and picturesque capitals of Latvia and Estonia, Riga and Tallinn.
