Subject: Baltic Region
Hello Ziners:

Have my next trip already booked to the Baltic Region for 3 weeks. I depart Seattle WA on Sept. 4th. My itinerary is: Helsinki, Finland Stockholm, Sweden St.Petersburg, Russia Tallinn, Estonia Riga, Latvia There is tons of information on the main attractions in these cities in printed form and web sites, But I would truly appreciate any hotel recommendations, side trips and off the beaten path ideas. Also transportation info, e.g., Silja vs. Viking Line, Stockholm to Helsinki. And train vs. bus, Helsinki to St.Petersburg. And St.Petersburg to Tallinn and/or Riga. I am a CRIBS traveler.
