Moscow, Russia


Moscow / Uglich / Yaroslavi / Goritsy / Kizhi Island / St. Petersburg / Tallinn / Riga / Vilnius / Kaunas Trip

This Moscow post is the start of  open Jaw trip starting in Moscow, Russia and flying home  from Kaunas, Lithuania. We took a riverboat cruise from Moscow to St. Petersburg then flew to Tallinn, Estonia. We picked up a rental car in Tallinn and drove to Vilnius, Lithuania. I'll make separate posts for each leg and a couple of great stops in between.
