Travel by coach to Kaunas
Come to the "skansen-style" museum of Rumsiskes near Kaunas during the Great Midsummer Eve and Shrove Tuesday celebrations and you will see how the Baltic people celebrate! Each year the night of June 23 is very special in Baltics, because most people go out into the countryside to drink locally brewed beer, build campfires, make wreath of oak leaves and flowers, and sing and dance from dusk till dawn. Or, put on your most horrifying mask, enjoy a great variety of pancakes with hot drinks and see an evil symbol of winter, called More, burn in a big fire during the Lithuanian "mardi gras" Shrove Tuesday.
Travel by coach to Nida
Visit Nida with its great sand dunes on the Lithuanian seaside, or Saaremaa island in Estonia, where the waves of the Baltic sea break at the rocky scarps, for a quiet and relaxing stay surrounded by dense forests. Almost half of the territory of the Baltics is covered with forests. A long Baltic Sea shoreline of white sand is sparsely populated. Many animal species, such as wild boar and storks which are rare elsewhere in Europe still can be seen in Baltic woods. White stork is a rather typical site in rural Baltics, and the possibility to meet a stork, while travelling in a countryside, is most probable.
Skiing in the Baltics
Although there are no large mountains in the Baltics, our people are real downhill skiing fans. As a proof, there are many outdoor facilities open through the winter in all three countries, like Sigulda in Latvia, or Otepaa in Estonia, as well as the Baltics' biggest indoor snow arena near Druskininkai in Lithuania.
