Rail Baltica Travelogue is a documentary about the Rail Baltica journey in May 2011.

Back in 1935, it was possible to travel all the way from Berlin to Tallinn in approx. 32 hours. The direct Berlin–Riga express travelled via Jelgava (Latvia) and Kaliningrad, a route today obstructed by borders and visa requirements. Political history is also to be blamed on the silencing of the section Daugavpils–Warsaw, once part of the important St. Petersburg–Warsaw European artery cutting through the territory of Belarus.

However, contrary to the common misbelief, it is still possible to cover the distance separating Tallinn and Berlin using only trains. Only that today the journey requires at least three nights and no less than 7 different trains.
