SXUTNQJI : G^YNRJ TWYTZWNXYX Menlo Park photographer Frances Freyberg explores the Baltic countries













Story and photos by Frances Freyberg

Among the delights of independent travel are the unplanned stops: to walk through a castle ruin on a hillside, to visit a windswept patch of coastline, to sample fresh fruits from an outdoor market.


ike many of their former Eastern Bloc neighbors, the Baltic countries — Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania — don’t appear on the radar of the average American tourist. That’s good news for you, because this history-rich and architecturally diverse northern European region is as unspoiled by the tourist masses as its delightful countryside is unspoiled by time.

Gothic cathedrals, all tucked behind the old city walls. Tallinn plays up its medieval past with a summer festival and markwet, where restaurant staff and street vendors dress and act the part. Riga, Latvia, is a haven of stately Art Nouveau buildings within an eclectic mix of old and new architectural styles. Larger and busier than Tallinn’s, Riga’s Old Town is a maze of winding streets lined with outdoor cafes and a wide variety of museums and shops. In the late summer evenings, locals and visitors alike fill the main squares to enjoy live music over a glass of wine. Vilnius, Lithuania, is renowned for the ornate Baroque architecture within its sprawling Old Town. In addition to its many historic churches and cathedrals, Vilnius hosts a 16th century university and an alternative art community, which lend the city a young and vibrant atmosphere. The three countries are also home to castles and palaces galore. In the Latvian countryside outside of Riga, visitors can take their pick of Baroque-Rococo or neoclassical palaces, or of 13th-19th century castles that dot the area. One of the most visited castles in the region is the picturesque Trakai Island Castle in Lithuania. Suited for cycling

Touring each country’s capital city is a distinct architectural adventure. Tallinn, Estonia, is centered on its small medieval Old Town, with narrow cobblestone alleyways, colorful gabled homes, and grand

The Baltic countries are located on the eastern coast of the Baltic Sea, across from southern Sweden. Together, they boast more than 2,700 miles of coastline, including thousands of offshore islands. The mainland is mostly flat, with lowlands to the

west and gently rolling hills to the east. Inland highlights include the pristine lakes of eastern Latvia and Lithuania, as well as Estonia’s unique wetlands that feature swamps, marshes and bogs. Outdoors enthusiasts will find the flat terrain and quiet roads are nicely suited for cycling (but be prepared for well-kept gravel!), while the many lakes lend themselves to recreation such as canoeing and kayaking. National and regional parks cover all three countries and are refreshingly uncrowded, providing ample hiking and camping space for those who can brave the bugs Continued on page 27

Frances Freyberg will exhibit photos from around the world at the Atherton Library, 2 Dinkelspiel Station Lane in Atherton, from Nov. 2 through December. On Wednesday, Nov. 3, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., a reception will follow a slide lecture and discussion of Ms. Freyberg’s 2008 around-the-world journey.

Many of the roads through the region are only two lanes, and once off the highways, drivers can often find themselves on well-maintained dirt roads, passing through quiet forests, rural farming communities, and small country villages. Among the delights of independent travel are the unplanned stops — to walk through a castle ruin on a hillside, to visit a windswept patch of coastline, to sample fresh fruits from an outdoor market, or to listen to folk music at an outdoor festival.

of summer. For those who love the dramatic Northern California coast, beware that much of the Baltic coastline may seem somewhat flat in comparison. However, the mild summer sea is great for children and popular with families. Coastal highlights include Estonia’s quiet offshore islands and Lithuania’s Curonian Spit National Park — a 60-milelong finger of land that is home to some of the highest drifting sand dunes in Europe. Back roads

While visiting the capital cities and a national park or two will give you a taste of the Baltic countries, the best way to really get to know the region is by traveling the ground in between. An extensive bus network crisscrosses each country, but a rental car affords visitors the greatest freedom to explore the rugged Baltic back roads in all their gravel glory.

Rich history, culture

Ancestors of today’s Estonians, Latvians and Lithuanians are believed to have first settled the region between 3,000 and 2,000 BC. From the 13th to the 20th century, the Baltic countries have faced conquest or occupation by the Danes, Germans, Poles, Russians and Swedes. Following a brief period of independence in the early 20th century, the Baltic countries were incorporated into the Soviet Union and did not regain sovereignty until 1991. They have been members of the European Union and NATO since 2004. Throughout its turbulent history, each of the three Baltic countries has maintained a distinct cultural identity. Folk songs and traditional dress from across the region are celebrated at the annual International Folklore Festival Baltica. Each country also has its own currency and language, although English, German and Russian are widely spoken.

Project Read appeals for more volunteer tutors Project Read-Menlo Park is making an urgent appeal for volunteer tutors to work one-on-one with other adults who want to learn to read and write in English. The tutor-training class that began several weeks ago drew fewer new volunteers than usual, and the waiting list of local residents needing help is long, said Menlo Park librarian Roberta Roth, who works with Project Read. In an effort to recruit more tutors before the next tutortraining class meets in February 2011, Project Read staff is urging people to sign up to volunteer and learn tutoring skills through vid-

eotaped and DVD training material available from the program’s office at the Menlo Park Library. No experience is necessary to be a Project Read tutor. Volunteers are matched with students, and the tutor and student determine when and where to meet. Tutoring often takes place in the library, and books and other materials are supplied by the program. All instruction is in English, so knowledge of another language isn’t necessary. The nonprofit program has provided free tutoring to more than 2,000 local residents since its founding in 1985. Some of the beneficiaries are trying to learn to read and write in Eng-

lish as a second language; others are native English speakers, but somehow slipped between the cracks at school and never learned literacy skills beyond a rudimentary level. Although their backgrounds can be widely different, they have an important thing in common: the desire to improve their lives and those of their families through literacy, Ms. Roth said. For more information about becoming a tutor, call the Project Read office at 330-2525, or e-mail Alice Bradshaw at aabradshaw@ Go to projectreadmenlopark. org to learn more about the program.
