While you can explore species of animal from all stretches of the globe at Tallinn Zoo, there’s a range of wildlife parks out in the country where you can catch a glimpse of the brown bear, lynx and deer right here in their natural habitat.
You can even jump in and learn about the life in the country, with many farms welcoming visitors of all ages to experience the rural lifestyle first hand.
