Baltic cuisine consists of a variety of different culinary influences. Russian, Scandinavian, Polish and German cuisine in particular play an important role in these countries.
Cepelinai is a Lithuanian specialty. These are potato dumplings which are filled with mushrooms, fish, quark, meat or bacon and are served with butter sauce, onions and bacon.
In Latvia, a Latvian variant of the pierogi is particularly popular: "Piragi". These are dumplings filled with minced meat, mushrooms or cabbage, originally from Poland or Russia.
Estonian cuisine is particularly influenced by German cuisine. That's why dishes such as pork knuckle with sauerkraut or lentil soup with smoked meat are known as favorite dishes.
Each of the Baltic countries has its own individual national language. In Lithuania and Latvia, besides Lithuanian and Latvian, Russian is also increasingly spoken. In Estonia, on the other hand, people almost exclusively speak Estonian.
For tourists English is also very good for conversations.
