Baltic opera tour

The Baltic States are three countries of Europe, with a long history and diverse culture between regions. The three countries were independent, then occupied by the Soviet Union, but they were among the first to break away in 1987—91, the Singing Revolution, and today are proud members of both the European Union and NATO. The Singing Revolution is a commonly used name for events between 1987 and 1991 that led to the restoration of the independence of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

The tour continues by bus to the leafy Kadriorg district, a park area that’s home to amazing wooden villas, art museums, and a baroque palace built for Russian Tsar Peter the Great. It continues onward to the Pirita beach area, where you’ll get a glimpse of the mysterious ruins of a 15th century convent and the city’s Soviet-era TV tower.
