I'm researching a Summer trip and looking for suggestions. So far, we will definitely go to these cities;

Copenhagen
Stockholm
Helsinki
Tallinn
St Petersburg
Moscow

From Moscow we will go west via train stopping in one or two cities before flying home from a major city (Frankfurt, Berlin,Prague, Warsaw, etc).

My question is, what places in Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine or Poland are interesting to visit? We've only been to Krakow in Poland and loved it. We have not been to the other countries listed above.

We primarily enjoy the local food, bars, shopping districts (local, not upscale) and architecture. Also wineries. Art Museums are not high on our list, but we do enjoy historical (WWII) museums. We frequently do food tours.

Thoughts?

Listening as well.. I am planning a solo trip in May and the only city for sure on the itinerary is Budapest.

I've been to Copenhagen and LOVED It.. We are actually going back for Christmas this year. Also, we are going to Krakow in January, can't wait!

I've been looking at going to Bratislava, Bucharest, or Sofia in addition to Tallinn and Helsinki

Add to the list TriCity in Poland (Gdansk/Sopot/Gdynia) tourists love it! And Riga in Latvia.

Copenhagen is beautiful, but not an Eastern European city. Stockholm & Helsinki are Northern European cities
St. Petersburg - is very much worth to be seen. Expensive, though...

We are headed to Prague in March for 5 days and would love to hear any advice on things to do from others that have been there.

Krakow in January?? Cold, wet and not much going on. If you visit it around Christmas, you at least will catch the holiday spirit - Christmas Market, Christmas Creche Competition...

Yeah, we are already going to be in Berlin so we figured we'd pop over to Krakow. We are actually looking forward to a low key time.

I understand. The first half (or more) of our trip is northern europe and has been pretty well planned out; the last part will be eastern europe and I'm just starting to research that area.

We were there in the summer so the weather was wonderful. Here are a few places we enjoyed;

- The Absinthe Bar; they have over 100 different Absinthes and the presentation ceremony is entertaining.

- The Communist Museum; great historical collection of artifacts.

- Spa Beerland; you really do have a soak in beer and drink all you want.

- I had pork knuckle at two places (U Mateje Kotrby and another place) and loved it.

In Prague, we did a beer and tapas tour that was top notch.

One really cool thing we did was take a train to Kutna Hora to see the Bone Church. Awesome place! It was great to see the countryside and that town has insanely cheap food and drinks.

If you are foodie, I recommend to visit Rogacki Deli, in Charlottenburg, for quick lunch. Outstanding deli food quality! Iconic!
