What makes Estonia so special?
Estonia is often seen as the world’s leading innovator against the backdrop of untouched nature and rich medieval heritage. The story goes deeper, and it might just be that Estonia with its diverse background and Nordic temperament ends up being your next holiday destination. Here's why...
Estonia is a real treat for busy city dwellers looking to stretch out their limbs and breathe in a lung-full of the world's cleanest air.
Ever taken an ice road before? Estonia is truly compact and you can see a lot in a short time span. Clever locals have invented many exiting ways to travel, where getting from a to b becomes an adventure in itself.
It’s impossible to deny that Tallinn is the main reason most people first come to Estonia – to see the best protected and intact medieval city in Northern Europe.
Estonian restaurants take after their customers and this little Nordic nation has a taste for the real stuff. While modern Estonian population tends to be mostly urban, many still regularly travel to the countryside to pick fresh fruit and vegetables.
Estonia has six larger islands with well kept traditional culture as well as over a thousand tiny inhabited islands offering beautiful, peaceful and friendly atmosphere. Many of these islands also hide excellent beaches great for camping, sunbathing and swimming.
About 50% of Estonia's territory is covered with forest. This makes Estonia a great place for hiking and exploring the well-kept wildlife which is by now extinct in most other European countries.
Estonians love to sing, and we like to do it in a crowd. Because of this Estonia regularly hosts the largest choir festivals in the world, a tradition which dates back all the way to the 19th century and forms a large part of the Estonian identity.
Estonia is not new, in fact it is old and has been on the map of Northern Europe's most developed states since the medieval era. From the 13th century up until the recent decades Estonia has been under the rule of nearby kingdoms and nations, leaving behind examples of excellent architecture.
Estonia has four distinguished seasons offering great atmosphere and activities all year round. But did you know that Estonia also has a 5th season?
