The republic of Latvia has a proud history dating to medieval times.  An independent country since the dissolution of the USSR in 1991, 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.

Contributor shulmanaerial created this amazing drone video of Lake Ladoga in northwestern Russia. The footage  is shot from the northern part of the lake in the Republic of Karelia, which is part of the Russian Federation.  Covering 17.7k square km (around 6.7k square mi.), it's the largest lake located entirely within Europe.  In frozen form, the lake was the site of the famous "Road of Life" which was used to supply nearby Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) during its brutal hunger seige by Nazi Germany during World War II.

Prepare to be amazed by this music video from Moldova, an Eastern European country which was once part of the principality of Moldavia.  It features one of the country's top DJ's playing piano on the Moldavian Plateau, which lies to the east of the Carpathian Mountains.  Moldova was part of territory seized by the Soviet Union from Romania prior to World War II which then devolved into its own country when the Soviet Union subsequently split apart.

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.

Berdyansk is a Ukrainian port the Sea of Azov, a large and extremely shallow body of water which is an extension of the Black Sea.  While not as large as the port of Odessa further to the west, Berdyansk is nevertheless an important shipping center in the southern Ukraine, which otherwise lacks access to the sea.  In this video, contributor Daniilsamoilenko uses a DJI Phantom 3 drone to do an epic selfie pull out shot revealing the red sand beach and the blue sea water behind it.

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.

Kaunas is the second largest city in the Baltic Republic of Lithuania, after Vilnius.  Like Vilnius, it sits not on the Baltic Sea but in the interior of the country.   Kaunas was actually the capital of the country during the interwar period, when Vilnius was considered to be part of Poland.  Contributor ThePaulenzo used a DJI Phantom 4 drone to create an impressive aerial view of this well preserved medieval city at night.  Considered the country's cultural capital, Kaunas has a population of about 300,000.

Autumn in Riga (4k)

Andrey Semjonov

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 this dynamic and well-preserved city, compliments of content creator 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.

Majestic - Eastern Europe

Efremov.cinematography

From its beautiful mountains and rolling hills to its seaside towns and thunderous rivers the landscape of Eastern Europe is something to behold. Although there is no consensus on the precise area it covers, the area is mostly defined by socioeconomic and cultural connotations. Most definitions include formerly communist European countries just outside of the Soviet Union block. The area includes the unique architecture and towering monuments you see in this dynamic, 4K aerial video by EF.cinematography.
