Clinging on the western edge of Europe are the Baltic states of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. Rich in natural resources and strategically important, these small countries have been key players in the geopolitics. Formed in the rampage of the Crusaders, they have seen the rise, wrath and fall of many empires. Most recently, Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union both left their mark on these three countries.
On our Soviet Baltics tour we provide an action-packed journey through the countries of the Baltics in an affordable and time-efficient manner. Beginning in Lithuania, we head towards Estonia via Latvia. On the way we explore the military heritage and dark modern history of these ancient lands, from KGB prisons and micronations to Soviet nuclear bunkers and WW2 battlefields still littered with relics.
We also dive into the military history of the region by driving tanks, shooting Soviet guns and experiencing KGB treatment at the infamous Karosta prison. This is the quintessential Baltics tour in classic YPT style at an affordable price!
