Cultural Capitals of the Baltics
Riga and Tallinn
Monday 21 - Saturday 26 September 2020
Despite their histories as major centres of the Hanseatic League and following years of foreign domination (by Denmark, Sweden, Poland, Tsarist and Soviet Russia), both Riga and Tallinn have retained their individuality and unique architecture.
The Historic Centre of Riga has arguably the finest collection of Art Nouveau architecture in the world while Tallinn boasts an abundance of opulent public buildings. With their well-preserved medieval cores both cities have been recognised by UNESCO and are included on the World Heritage List. More recently both have been awarded the status of European Capitals of Culture and undoubtedly offer a wealth of history and culture to uncover and explore.
