While only a short trip across the Gulf of Finland separates Finland and Estonia, for all their differences, it might as well be a giant ocean. Join Professor Alexei Leporc and explore the history, architecture, art, music and national identities of these two countries with a visit to Tallinn and Helsinki. In Helsinki you will focus on the works of one of the greatest 20th century European architects and designers, Alvar Allto, including his stunning University at Otaniemi. You will explore Tallinn and its charming mixture of Gothic, baroque, classical and neo-Russian monuments.
Uncover the layers of cultural and natural history that explain the identity of present day Kosovo, Albania and Montenegro. These three remarkable countries have always tottered on one of Europe’s great historical fault lines, where the Catholic West meets Orthodox East and the flow of Islam reaches into so much of the region’s history.
