Rick Steves believes that the more money a traveler spends--on deluxe hotels, lavish meals, grand entertainments--the more removed he becomes from the country and the people he has journeyed so far to meet. His "back door" philosophy to travel explodes this ironic condition by encouraging readers to opt for small, family-run lodgings and corner restaurants. The pleasures of Moscow and St. Petersburg, Vilnius, Lithuania, Tallinn, Estonia, Helsinki, and more are revealed in this edition. 12 maps, charts, 13 tables.
