Baltic Holidays reports that its longer tours are becoming increasingly popular in the winter months, where visitors can go at their own pace and take in St. Petersburg as well as the Baltic capitals of Vilnius, Riga and Tallinn, staying in four- and five-star properties.


The company's owner Phil Teubler said: “St. Petersburg, in particular, is excellent to go to in the winter. You don’t get the crowds at the Hermitage and St Catherine’s place that you do in the summer months.

"In the Baltic capitals you get a very good choice of hotels, and guests are more often than not upgraded. There are also many concerts on throughout the winter months and, increasingly, we are seeing more clients coming over to enjoy the high standard of ballet and opera on offer in winter."

As an example, a 19-night Baltic & Russian Circle itinerary visits Helsinki, Moscow, Riga, St Petersburg, Tallinn and Vilnius and leads in at £2,536 per person.

Prices include four-star breakfast accommodation, private transfers, trains and ferry crossings per the itinerary, plus a selection of private excursions and city tours.
