Estonia is a small and peaceful country on the shores of Baltic Sea. Its linguistic (and one might say, to some extent also cultural), sister nation Finland is a mere 90 minutes speedboat ride away towards North. From Eastern side, Estonia is flanked by its gigantic neighbour Russia, and from the South, its fellow Baltic country Latvia.
Estonia has a lot of space as the population is just over 1,3 million and so it is no wonder that over a half of the country is covered by forests. With its unique marshlands and bogs, beautiful nature parks and islands, this land is a treat for a nature lover.
However, if you are more into cultural and historical discoveries, Estonia with its rich history, mixed with German, Russian, Danish, Swedish influences, might just delight you. For a start, we would suggest to visit a capital city, Tallinn, with its medieval Old Town as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site, and other sights and experiences an old, yet modern, seaside city can offer. You can have a look at our suggested Tallinn Tour and North Estonia Tour.
Besides the capital city, there are other lovely smaller towns such as a university town of Tartu or Otepää in the South, or seaside resorts Pärnu and Haapsalu in the West. If you like mature parks and magnificent country dwellings, a tour around hundreds of years old manor houses, dotted around the whole country could be just something you’d be looking for.
