The Estonians know a little secret for staying safe and visible during dark winter days. It's small, simple and inspired by a cat's eyes. Find out why you should be sporting a reflector whenever you are in Estonia.
Darkness inspired invention
Estonia is located quite north in the world; Tallinn sits at the same latitude as Stockholm, Oslo, and Juneau, Alaska. In the winter, the days are short - a mere six hours on the Winter Solstice in December. The early sunsets, however, do not stop people from going about their business and enjoying recreation. Tourists as well can enjoy the special things the dark nights have to offer, such as possibilities to glimpse the Aurora Borealis.
