The Latvian airline airBaltic will enter the winter season on October 30, 2016 with an improved schedule to exciting winter holiday destinations. airBaltic introduces the TOP 5 of the most popular destinations for this winter. 

  1. Munich is the third largest city in Germany and the capital of the Bavaria region. Munich is captivating with its folksy traditions, outstanding architecture and modern spirit. During winter, Munich is also the perfect place to begin an Alpine ski trip, because it is located just a little over an hour away from some of the best winter sports resorts in the Alps. 
  2. Milan is Italy’s second largest city and is rich in history and art, cutting-edge technology and an overflowing spirit of creativity. If you are visiting Milan in the winter, you can explore the beautiful city and also enjoy a wonderful ski trip. A number of resorts are within easy driving range of the city.
  3. Zurich definitely becomes magical when the winter sets in, especially during the festive season. Zurich is a city in touch with nature, as it is set against the wondrous views of the Swiss Alps and the smaller hills that surround the city, where the Limmat River flows from the north western end of Lake Zurich. Near Zurich you will find great ski resorts in breathtaking Swiss Alps.
  4. Poprad in northern Slovakia stands nearly 700 metres above sea level, but thanks to the proximity of the magnificent High Tatra Mountains, it feels even higher. The city acts as the main gateway to the natural splendours of the National Park of High Tatras and is geared up for tourism. Poprad provides breathtaking scenery and possibilities for great outdoor activities in winter like skiing and snowboarding.
  5. Tbilisi is a rising star amid the mountain ranges of Saguramo and Trialeti. Tbilisi is a great city where you can explore the beauty of Georgian culture, cuisine and nature. In addition to plan more unconventional winter getaway, you might want to visit Guardian ski resort in the Caucasus Mountains of Georgia.
