Thriving, glamorous and strikingly different, cool Nordic Iceland and Finland and proudly independent Baltic Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia offer a chilly culture shock of old and vibrantly new. Their cities reveal their pasts in a treasure trove of glorious buildings, cobbled lanes, churches and museums, and celebrate their present with festivity, food and song - this up-to-the-minute new guide equips you with essential information on the top city sights and the choicest restaurants, hotels and nightlife, Or escape entirely on day excursions and longer tours: take a lazy steamboat trip, soak in a bubbling geothermal pool, sip cocktails in a bar built of ice, climb a volcano, go whale-watching or puffin-spotting, be pampered in an ex-Soviet health spa, explore a Russian palace, or go mad in the midnight sun. For a week or just a weekend, head north for a short break thats really special.Inside you will find: * eight major northern cities and towns in one guide* how to get there, by air and sea* getting between the cities by train and sea* up-to-date, insider advice on where to stay, eat and shop* local history, food and drink explained* simple day trips by local bus, train or ferry from each destination city* foolproof short tours by car for those with more time to spare* user-friendly town maps, and area maps to help you plan your trip The Baltic States joined Europe on May 1, 2004 and since then tourism is really gearing up--no visas are required, only three hours from London by plane, and a vast improvement in hotel accommodations and restaurant fare, so go now, before the cities change out of recognition and lose their old-world charm. Travel in winter for a full-on icy experience--swim in hot volcanic pools while it snows in Iceland, shop in pre-Christmas markets in Finland, see the Baltic capital cities by horse and cart, and skate on the frozen River Neva in St Petersburg. Or, travel in summer for outdoor music beside lakes and in parks, White Nights in Finland where the daylight never ends, and experience an outdoor cafe culture to rival Brussels or Paris. In Tampere there is a museum devoted to beloved childrens author Tove Jansson (the Moomin books), that have been translated into many languages. Combining all three countries in one trip is easy as there are plenty of ferries to take travelers between Helsinki and St. Petersburg.
