The city enjoys a well-developed infrastructure of services and entertainments – it has plenty of accommodation, catering and leisure places of various levels. Vilnius boasts the most wonderful architectural styles of Southern and Western Europe, Gothic and Renaissance, as well as the original “Lithuanian” Baroque, also called the last vivid flash of Baroque in Europe.

Vilnius, for its activities in creating the good neighbourship and civic community, earned the 2000-2001 UNESCO Cities for Peace Prize and was nominated as the City for Peace for the region of Europe and North America.

In 2009 Vilnius will become the European cultural capital.

  ABOUT ESTONIA 

Estonia  is a mixture of colourful history and the dynamic present time, contrasts in lifestyles and nature, a journey from trendy Tallinn to the quiet of bogs and romantic fishing villages, an ascent from the primeval forest to the height of a limestone cliff and a view over the sea. South Estonia is unique and mysterious: the rich nature, lakes and hills of the heartland nourish the character of the hard-working country people, the nostalgic atmosphere of small towns and the academic-bohemian ambience of the university town Tartu. West Estonia is characterised by vast expanses of land, peace of mind and fresh sea air, bays abounding in birds, juniper fields, pine trees and people toughened by the sea breeze on the coast.

FILMING IN ESTONIA

It is quite unusual to find such a variety in landscapes, flora, seasons, weather and moods within only a couple of dozens of kilometers. At the same time Estonia has plenty of space: on the territory with a size comparable to that of Denmark or Holland there are four and twelve times less inhabitants here, respectively.

GEOGRAPHY

Estonia lies along the Baltic Sea, just below Finland. Tallinn, Estonia capital city is only about 40 miles south of Helsinki, across the Gulf of Finland. Sweden is Estonia western neighbor across the Baltic.

CLIMATE

The climate in Estonia is temperate, characterised by warm summers and fairly severe winters. Snow cover, which is deepest in the south-eastern part of Estonia, usually lasts from mid-December to late March. The weather is often breezy and humid due to the proximity of the Baltic Sea. Bring your umbrella and a light raincoat in case of occasional showers.
