Kihnu island

Kihnu island is a peculiar combination of contemporary life and historical past. Celebrated by UNESCO, Kihnu cultural is still a living, thriving function of the current day.

With Kihnu women still wearing their self woven traditional skirts (kört) every day, the small children of the area know traditional Kihnu dances and songs while the Kihnu dialect is still taught in school.

Surrounded by a low and stony sea Kihnu island is neighboured by many little islets, and the local Kihnu strait, is a important gathering place for birds, as the nesting area for many birds endangered in Europe.

At a size of 7 km long and 3.3 km around, Kihnu island is the perfect size for exploring by bicycle!
