Baltic Holidays 'As Seen In' The Press
To many, Belarus conjures up images of the former Soviet Union - a communist regime, concrete blocks and tractor factories...OK, so some of these characteristics do still exist and some are even worthy attractions in themselves, but don’t be deceived. There’s a whole lot more to Belarus.
Belarus is quirky and full of contrasts. Cities are packed with high-rise Soviet blocks but as you venture in to the countryside you’ll discover picturesque wooden houses with blooming gardens and home-grown produce. Look out for beautiful medieval castles in various states of repair. Some have been abandoned to nature, whilst others (like Mir Castle) have been preserved in all their glory, earning their status as recognised UNESCO World Heritage sites.
For those with an open mind, Belarus provides much to see and do. Appreciate the history, be sensitive to the present situation and be willing to join in the local entertainment. You’ll have no regrets!
Belarus is on the brink of change, there's no other place in Europe like it. See it in all its unique glory now.Our Top Belarus Tours

HATS OFF TO BALTIC HOLIDAYS. YOU GAVE US A TRIP OF A LIFETIME.
Our trip was superb, Philip. As you well know, before the trip I customized it quite a bit. Your team was terrific in accommodating that customization. The result was a unique and spectacular trip. I could go on at great length to tell you how much we enjoyed this trip but, instead, will save time by simply telling you that Denise and I have traveled quite extensively and we both agreed that this was one of our favorite trips ever. That is in large part due to your team's hard work before we landed and once we were in country. The Baltics trip was the first time that we traveled on our own but used a tour company to help plan and then fully support the trip. You have now spoiled - and ruined - us. Hats off to Baltic Holidays. You gave us a trip of a lifetime.
