Liverpool is, without doubt, one of England's most
exciting cities to visit. Before they visit, many already
feel that they know the city, especially the sports
scene and cultural life throughout time. The Beatles
with Paul McCartney and John Lennon as front
figures is from here, and the city is home to the two
football flagships, Liverpool F.C and Everton.
However, there is much more to Liverpool than
football and music.
Latvia’s capital, Riga, is the largest city in any of the
three Baltic countries. It is a European metropolis
with all the gastronomic, cultural and shopping
facilities that entails.
The old part of town is very atmospheric. It has
cobblestone streets, Brick Gothic churches, wellpreserved
buildings, some dating centuries back, and
excellent museums. The newer parts of the city lie
outside the old earthworks. It is there one finds
Europe’s largest concentration of houses in the
beautiful Jugend style....
Tallinn is unique in Europe because of its medieval
city centre. It has a special atmosphere created by
the many buildings dating back to the 15th and 16th
centuries when commerce brought great treasure to
The old Town Hall, St Olai Church, which was once
the tallest building in the world, and the more than
2-kilometre-long preserved city walls are just some
of Tallinn’s many attractions. The modern Tallinn,
with its parks, walking streets and shopping centres
lies just next to the old centre, and the short
distances can make an ordinary walk feel like timetravel....
Vilnius is the capital of Lithuania. Its atmosphere is
a blend of the charms of the Baltic and Central
Europe. The small, cosy streets in the city centre,
characterized by Baroque architecture and a wealth
of churches, give way further out to modern
buildings and a cosmopolitan feel. Shopping
opportunities and cultural and gastronomic
experiences abound everywhere.
