The Baltic Sea republic of Latvia has a proud tradition dating to medieval times, with close historical ties to Germany.  An independent country since 1991 following the dissolution of the Soviet Union, its capital city Riga is a well preserved port on the Baltic Sea.  Riga was a member of the Hanseatic League of Baltic port cities which dominated the trade of northern Europe during the Middle Ages, and the old city is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site.  Drone pilot Chris Berg used his DJI Mavic Pro to create this stunning aerial tour of the country, most of which is shot in and around Riga.

TWO SOULS

Antonio Esteban Gonsalez

While Ukraine has many cultural and historical ties to Russia, both the landscape of the country and its people are quite distinct.  It is a country of large cities like Kiev, spectacular peaks of the Carpathian Mountain range in the southwestern part of the countries, and gorgeous Black Sea coastlines in its far south.  Contributor Anthony Esteban Gonsales does an outstanding job of using a drone to create a deeply moving aerial portrait of this amazing country.

Winter Wonderland

Belarus is a landlocked and generally flat country.  More than anything, what distinguishes its landscape it its forests.  About 40% of the land area of the country is forested.  During its long winters, these forests become true winter-wonderlands, on a par with the best forests of Scandinavia.  In this drone video by FFly.Belarus, you'll get a bird's eye views of the country's endless forests in the dead of winter.  It was filmed near Mogilev (the country's third largest city) in its east-central region.

When the Soviet Union dissolved in the early 1990's, its Baltic states were among the earliest beneficiaries.  All three had enjoyed a period of independence between the World Wars, and had longstanding cultural and economic ties to Germany and other countries on the Baltic Sea.  Latvia's capital city Riga perhaps best exemplifies this  economic progress.  Here is a beautiful aerial tour of Riga compliments of Audrey Semjonov and his DJI Mavic Pro drone.

Adrift on the Dneiper River

Antonio Esteban Gonsalez

The Ukrainian capital Kiev is closely tied to the Dneiper River on which it sits.   Kiev sits roughly midway down the 2.2k km (1.36k mi.) river, Europe's fourth longest .  The Dneiper rises near Smolensk in western Russia and empties into the Black Sea to the south.  Along the way, it provides enough hydropower to generate about 10% of the Ukraine's electricity needs.  In this video, you'll get a nice bird's eye view of the mighty river in winter, compliments of contributor Anthony Esteban Gonsales.
