“Northern European and Baltic Countries” is the title of the Tuesday, April 10, travelogues that will be presented at 3 and 7 p.m. at the OperaHouse Theater in DeWitt, Iowa.
Sponsored by the DeWitt Noon Lions Club, this travelogue by George Kruckenberg of West Des Moines, who was a popular presenter last year, will involve a “volkswalking” and sightseeing tour of Iceland, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Russia and Poland.
The audience will see photos of geysers, waterfalls and the stark landscapes of Iceland as well as the rolling farmland of Finland. The well-preserved medieval Baltic cities of Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius, which have been transformed into modern capitals, will be featured along with the scenic Masurian Lakes region of Poland and its rebuilt and restored capital of Warsaw.
The extravagant and ornate Russian palaces of St. Petersburg will be another highlight of the presentation by Kruckenberg, who has traveled extensively in Europe, many times with a local “volkswalking” club.
A suggested donation of $4 to see the hour-long travelogue, shown on the theater’s new digital equipment, will go toward Lions Club charities.
