Baltic oddities and period hotels queries

Jump to last reply

Guides to Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia remain rather limited, both in print and (unsurprisingly) on-line.

Those who've been to any of the three capitals (Tallinn, Riga, and Vilnius), is there anything you came across there accidentally (a sight, an activity, a restaurant, an hotel, a museum, an event) which struck you as particularly interesting, enjoyable, or otherwise special, and which made you wonder why it wasn't mentioned in guide books? And if so, what exactly was it?

Secondly, I see that there's an increasing amount of accommodation in well-preserved ancient buildings, from the 16th century to Art Deco or Jugendstil. Probably there are more of these than appear in current issues of guide books. Regardless of that, can anyone particularly recommend any historic hotels in these cities from personal experience of them, or even from stumbling across them and wishing they'd known about them before booking elsewhere?

Finally, does anyone from a nation which doesn't have visa-free access to Estonia (Canada, for instance), have experience with purchasing an invitation? From whom, and how much?

With thanks,
