What in Europe are the Baltic states (Lithuania, Latvia etc) located?

Obviously everyone knows which countries constitute northern Europe, southern Europe etc., but I'm not quite sure where the Baltic States fit.

What do you think?

    "Lithuania is a Baltic country in northeastern Europe. It has a Baltic Sea coastline in the west and borders with Latvia to the north, Belarus to the east, Poland to the southwest, and Russia to the west.

    Latvia is a European state with a coastline on the Baltic Sea. One of the three Baltic states, it is bordered by Estonia to the north, Lithuania to the south, Russia to the east, Belarus on the south east, and the Baltic Sea on the west."

    The Baltic States are considered part of Northern Europe.

    I beg to differ.. Many people might think they do, but they're often the same ones who divide Europeans into Anglo-Saxons, Vikings, Germans/Aryans, Slavs, and Latins who are mixed with Arabs or something. I doubt that you could correctly define us.
