The Best of Estonia
From the Old Town of medieval Tallinn to the Baltic Sea beach resort of Parnu and the stunning Estonian countryside, here are the unmissable highlights from a trip to the country.
Estonia's capital city is the country's primary destination, and growing in popularity with foreign travellers. Visitors will want to take a guided tour of the medieval Old Town, or visit the old hilltop part of the city, Toompea Hill. Enjoy exploring the cobbled streets, old town square and historic buildings, with wonderful views over the rest of the city.
The country's premier Baltic Sea (technically Gulf of Riga!) beach resort, Parnu is busy during the country's short summer from June to August. It's popular with Estonians and foreign travellers alike, and the beach is one of the finest in this part of the world, with an unbroken stretch of white sand and a bustling promenade. It's the perfect city for a few days of R&R in summer! Nearby Soomaa National Park is an important bird conservation area.
Alutaguse National Park
Predators such as bears and wolves are returning across Europe as the conservation of the natural world intensifies. And Estonia is the bear capital of Europe, with more than 700 of the animals roaming the old-growth forests of Alutaguse National Park. Located in the north of the country, it's an easy visit from Tallinn. Lahemaa National Park is the largest national park in Estonia, and another great option.
Estonia's second city is the country's intellectual hub, with a famous university and a reputation for classical architecture. Visitors to this old city (the oldest in the Baltic states) will want to head to the medieval old town to see some of the ancient churches and other buildings. And there's the and the soup neighbourhood, home to quaint wooden house and rapid modernisation from what was once regarded as one of Europe's last slums.
