Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This review is based mainly on the sections covering the cities of Vilnius and Riga.

The maps of both Riga and Vilnius are quite difficult to read, inaccurate, and not very useful. Even the "walking tour" is a jarring mess making the reader jump around the whole chapter trying to get some context. Moreover, the route passes right by some of the "Top Sights" mentioned elsewhere but fails to point this out or even mark them on the map! It feels like following someone's poor directions to their house.

Despite an overall lack of flow, the book is actually well-written, if prone to hyperbole. (e.g. "Visiting Riga without seeing the Central Market is like going to Paris and not stopping by the Louvre.") There is certainly a tendency by the authors to generally overhype yet fail to provide specific discerning advice about what are essentially mediocre European tourist capitals (Riga and Vilnius).

5.0 out of 5 stars Very detailed guide. 9 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found very useful information in this guide, as it is detailed in every aspect useful for a turist.
I especially appreciated the information regarding the public trasportation, which made easier the search of attractions which were not located in the center of the towns.
The only disadvantage was that the prices of restaurants anf museums were higher than reported.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still usefully up-to-date 5 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found the background useful and the descriptions of towns and how to move around good. I use other sources nowadays for restaurant info so the fact that this is not the latest edition doesn't matter.
