    Latvia: Riga the capital is a must, some nice jugend/art nouveau architecture there etc.

    Estonia: the old town in Tallinn is a must even though it can be crowded with tourists, its a lovely place just to stroll arround in.

    Kadriorg has a park and the museums for Art and lots of old oak threes is worth seeing (tram 1 10 min. from centre or take a cab approx. 6 Eur)

    Have a glimps of the seaside & Pirita River and the monastry ruins in Pirita, allso the beach is almost across the street (buss 8 or 1A from Viru Square center / 15 min.)

    Wow Russia is big and allso Saint Petersburg, if you are in to art and architecture the Winter Palace is not to missed, take your time its a huge place.

    Hi Fran,
    I loved Riga for it's culture, the beautiful art nouveau, the central market and the bars!

    Jurmala is a cute beach town only a 20min drive from Riga and definitely worth a trip.

    If you have some time on you hands, you should check out the Hill of crosses in Lithuania, which is only a two hour drive from Latvia.

    I've written a few stories about the cities and you can find them here:

    Have fun,

    In Lithuania - Trakai - mid-eval castle some 35mi from Vilnius, Old Town Riga, small but very very nice. In Estonia I like Saaremaaisland, very different nature and peace comparing to the rest of the region. Saint Petersburg (Russia) - been there few times but have blurry memories! :) Recommended time of the year early/mid May to end of June.

    Some basic places to visit in Saint Petersburg (Russia):

    State Hermitage Museum

    Savior on the Spilled Blood

    St. Isaac's Cathedral

    Faberge Museum

    Catherine Palace

    Petergof

    do a canal cruise if the weather is fine (if you are coming from May to early October).

    Optional less visited (but interesting) places -

    Pavlovsk, Lomonosov, Russian Museum, Yusupov Palace

    The majority of people come from may to September because of the weather. It's extremely busy period as cruise ships come during the same time as well. In my opinion, less busy period with relatively nice weather are May, September and beginning of October. Late autumn, winper and early spring are best for art lovers as museums are empty compared to summer, but the weather may be not perfect.

    I live in St Petersburg and have a tour company here, so if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
