All of the Baltic States are members of the European Union and NATO and also parties of the Schengen agreement.
The nordic-medieval Tallinn near the Baltic Sea that has excellent connections with Helsinki, Stockholm and St Petersburg and is also one of the world's smartest cities, the glamorous Riga nourished by the wide Daugava River with its elegant Art Nouveau boulevards and almost Mediterranean-like Vilnius rich in baroque and churches.
All three Baltic states have had strong influences from foreign occupations and yet have a face of their own. You can definitely sense how different the countries really are - from the catholic Lithuania to the world's least religious country - Estonia.
