Baltic region

Baltic Sea and surrounding countries

The terms Baltic region, Baltic Rim countries, and Baltic Rim refer to slightly different combinations of countries in the general area surrounding the Baltic Sea.

Etymology

The first to name it the Baltic Sea ("Mare Balticum") was eleventh century German chronicler Adam of Bremen.

Denotation

  • The group of countries presently referred to by the shorthand Baltic states: Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania.
  • Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Kaliningrad Oblast of Russia, exclaved from the remainder of Russia.
  • The former Baltic province of Imperial Russia: Today's Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania (without the formerly German area around Memel).
