Are these countries worth visiting if:
1. I can only go in the winter.
2. I know a local in Lithuania who can show me around.

The capitals all look like such cute towns, and I don't mind being cold.

    It is a beautiful region. The only con is there are not much things to see. 3 days max in all capitals are more than enough

      Quite a dichotomy isn't it

    Try to visit something outside the capitals as well.
    Estonia has both some nice coastlines as well as cities in the East that feel like Russia.

    Lots of the towns and cities have a charming Hanseatic feel to them to contrast with the Soviet brutalism elsewhere. Nature is quite nice in places but they’re small EU countries so you’re not getting wilderness and the big cities have a day or two of stuff for anon. Winters can be harsh and daylight short.

    i went to tallinn before christmas
    was pretty comfy
    the old town is like a medieval amusement park and every drainpipe had a little christmas tree and teh centre had a christmas market
    while i like summer holidays i am from a cold country so i didnt mind exploring harsh cold coastline or neighborhoods

    i had never been to eastern europe, so even little everyday differences were interesting to me if you're not into the typical tourist attractions

    I'm trying to figure out the best way to get from Krakow to Vilnius.
    It seems like my best option might be a train to Warsaw and then a bus from there. Would there be a direct bus that goes straight there even though the drive is like 9 hours?

      Actually frick it I might just fly straight from Krakow, seems like it might be a nightmare to figure out public transport on the ground, and I can't take any route that goes though Belarus

          Vilnius is a priority though since I might be meeting someone there.
          Another question, what's the best way to travel between the Baltic capitals? It looks like there are direct bus routes

            Buses are frequent, cheap and comfortable.

        Pole here. Definitely get a flight. Trains are much better than they used to be, pleasant even, but it will take you hours and hours to get there.

    Tallinn is a pretty nice place to visit. I would highly recommend going to:

    1) The Old Town
    2) Pirita Beach (it's begins with a huge pine tree forest with sand on the ground and you walk through it until it opens out into the sea).
    3) Lake Männiku and Lake Raku (you should be able to hire rowing boats... it's truly a beautiful lake)
    4) There are other natural places to visit and ols soviet history to see as well (if they haven't torn it down yet in defiance), if you want to get your Bald and Bankrupt on.

    It used to be very snowy in the winter but not so much anymore. I like snow and ice so this would make summer a better option for me.

    Lithuania is so cozy. My girlfriend showed me around Vilnius, Kausnas & Klaipeda last winter. It's so damn peaceful, people leave you alone and it really feels like a good break from the hustle of most of the world.

    please cum to tallinn and cuck some tõnus and toivos
    just stay away from russian chicks, you don't want to catch the z-virus, don't ya?
    inbetween fricking estonian prostitutes you can hang around the old town for a couple of days, but all the rest (museums, commieblocks, hipster places) is not unique, so you can hop on a bus to riga and spend a couple of days in their old town which is different from tallinn's
    never been to lithuania, can't comment on that

    I'm from Latvia. Baltics are very boring, but if you do visit make it into a trip to all of them. Winter is actually a great time as when it snows it looks quite nice - what you want to avoid is the shitty in between seasons with much of spring and autumn being a grey, rainy mess. Summer is nice, but only if you really hang out in the country side or drink beers at the beach.

    Do Tallinn.
    Then take one of the busses to Riga.
    In Riga see Old City, Art Nouveaux buildings, Jugendstil as it is known there, check out open air ethnographic museum just outside of Riga and maybe catch opera there as the tickets are dirt cheap. Two days max I'd say.
    Then Vilnius.

    There are other cities in Latvia, but most are basically small towns by international standards and there's frick all to do. Nature is quite nice, but you should be able to see most of it by taking busses that connect the Baltics. If you insist on nature, maybe go to Kemeru national park.

    We're quiet little places so you will get exactly that.

    Our food is quite underrated after having lived in France, Italy and Spain, especially pastries. Good mix of German, Russian, Polish and Swedish cuisine. Make sure to try piradzini or any kind of pastry. Try Lido if you like big portions and loads of meat. If you want more USSR experience, buy a cheburek from random lady in the streets. Maybe try plov in Central -stan restaurant or see if you can find a Georgian restaurant. Narvesen sells the best hot dogs I have ever tried. They're everywhere and cheap. I'm serious - get one.

      To add, nature is just pine forest and sea coast basically. Kemeru National Park is bit different since it is a big swamp basically and you can truly get that Shrek experience. Plus you can visit a town called Ogre to say it is all ogre now. There's nothing to do there BTW.

      AND to really answer your question, probably not, it really depends. We're bit out of the way as far as geography goes in Europe, and places like Poland and Hungary are cooler destinations in Eastern Europe in comparison with lot more to do and see. But if you've exhausted things you can see or do, why not?

    I've been to the Baltics twice and both times in the winter. Imo Tallinn is best visited in the winter. Riga is a sloppy mess in the winter, but I still enjoyed it. Lithuania is easily the most boring and lackluster of the three.

    I actually really liked Tartu as well.
