Best Baltic Travel Guide?

Recommended Posts

I'm waiting for the 2008 Rick Steve's Guide. I understand from other posts that it's simply the best. It should be on the market shortly as the 2007 guide was available last March.

Which travel guide have you found most useful? When was it published? TIA


For travel in most parts of Europe, I am super big fan of the DK Eyewitness books. They have a great mix of pictures, maps, building cut-aways, history, text, etc., to give you a well-rounded preview for what you will or can experience and enjoy. We have done well by their dining suggestions, etc. Rick Steves can be very good, also, along with Fodor’s, Frommers, etc. The green Michelin books offer greater depth on many areas of these countries. The downside with Eyewitness is that they don't have one book that covers most of the main Baltic countries. Their books are separate for Norway, Sweden, Denmark, etc. Steves, Fodor’s, Frommers, Michelin does offer one book that covers multiple countries, but not St. Petersburg as a part of that Scandavian coverage. BOTTOM LINE: Use your library and review key highlights for several of the top books. When traveling in Europe, we see the Eyewitness and Michelin books carried the most by travelers.

TLC makes some really great recommendations for Europe as a whole. other books we just photocopy


Great and smart point on taking photo copies of the key parts you really need. With the tightening baggage limits, you can't take as much along as you might like. Google maps are really great and allows lots of flexibility to print off what you'll need, then toss when done. Taking a few books along is good as you'll have more time and need there to check and re-check important info items. THANKS! Enjoy! Terry in Ohio
