TALLINN LIGHT FEST

Fri 3 's Sat 11 's This year's Tallinn Light Festival will have a new theme "Ice and Fire." For years, the festival has been made up of ice and snow sculptures, as well as staged fire performances, especially Christmas-tree bonfires. But, as of 2006, the festival aims at combining the two, as a reflection of the tiny country of Estonia itself - hot and cool. The Tallinn Light Festival is a thermometer, indicating the warming of Nordic culture.

URATU

Of all of Riga's Caucasian restaurants, Uratu has arguably the best interior, set in the basement of one of Riga's most beautiful Jugendstil complexes. The neighborhood is virtually a museum of architecture. This spacious restaurant is perfect for a formal night out, and has long been popular with the locals.

TRADITIONAL HORSE RACE 2006

Sat 4 's There are good reasons to go to Zarasai in the dead of winter. For one thing, nearly half of Lithuania seems to go there. For another, there's a great horserace in Dusetos. And hey, Dusetos: that place is like a festive oasis in the middle of so much bleakness. Plan ahead. A lot of people will be coming as well.
