Continent Estonia


Why Travel Estonia?

Estonia is a country in Northern Europe, which faces the Baltic Sea and Gulf of Finland and includes more than 1,500 islands, rocky beaches, forests and many lakes. Formerly part of the Soviet Union, the major attractions of the country include castles, churches and hilltop fortresses. The capital, Tallinn, is known for its preserved Old Town, museums and the 314m-high Tallinn TV Tower’s observation deck.

Though Estonia is small, but it isn’t the smallest country in Europe. It’s bigger than Slovenia, Holland, Denmark and Switzerland. It’s about the same size as New Hampshire and Massachusetts combined. The most extraordinary thing about Estonia is its grasp of technology. When it comes to Internet access, Estonia is one of the most connected countries in the world, and its education is also top-notch.

Speaking about what you could do here, starting from taking a sunbath on the white sandy beaches or at the pools and lakes which abound in the interior of the country; you could also go for cross-country skiing in the resort town of Otepää; visit Haapsalu—a small town on the western coast which is an ideal place to relax. Or simply hop over to Estonia's second-largest island, Hiiumaa—a true oasis of tranquility and biodiversity.

You could also find some peace in Mustvee, situated on the shores of the beautiful and vast Lake Peipsi, and Kuremäe, the site of the only functioning convent in Estonia. Or head for Narva—one of the oldest towns in Estonia; explore the countryside and see un-spoilt forest and bogs, picturesque old fishing villages and historic manor houses in one of Estonia's three national parks – Lahemaa, Soomaa and Vilsandi.

Apart from these, a visit to the Railway Museum, Saaremaa—the largest island in Estonia to see old windmills, stone churches, fishing villages and a 3,000 year-old meteorite crater; wander the magical medieval cobble stone streets of the capital, Tallinn; visit Tartu—Estonia's second-largest city or catch a glimpse of wildlife at Käina Bay Bird Reserve and Matsalu Nature Reserve.
