What’s special about the Baltic natureThe Baltic countries are a unique spot of land on the Eastern shores of the Baltic see which has not yet been completely invaded by the “modern civilization”. Where else in Europe it is possible to walk tens of kilometers along sandy beach without meeting a single soul? Or ride your bicycle on quiet roads through forests for hours without seeing a car? Or go boating down a naturally meandering river with red sandstone rocks lining its bank and birds singing unseen in the trees. In the Baltics, one can still see tens and hundreds of plant, animal and bird species and their habitats which are extinct or rare in modern Europe.
In this section, read about nature in all three Baltic countries:
