GLOBUS 2024: Warsaw, the Baltics & Helsinki (RQ)
9 days from Warsaw to Helsinki
This tour of the Baltics and Northern Europe is impressively full of high notes. Making your way from Poland to Finland through Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia, you'll see the historic sights, spoon the hearty stews, and hear the harmonious songs this distinctive region is famous for, starting with a private Chopin concert in the music maestro's hometown. Beyond Warsaw's resilience and its 'Wedding Cake' Palace of Culture and Science, there's more to fall in love within every capital city along your journey-Vilnius' bohemian artist quarter, Riga's Black Balsam liqueur and sweet Laima chocolates, and Tallinn's fairytale Old Town and onion-domed cathedral. A breezy ferry ride across the Baltic Sea to the design-centric city of Helsinki is the perfect encore.
