We all love to indulge in something sweet once in a while, and Estonians are no exception. Find out where to find the most delectable chocolates in all of Estonia, and some of the most unique in Europe.
Before chocolate, there was marzipan
Chocolate has been produced in Estonia since the 18th century. In the old days, before sugar was easy to come by, Estonians turned to honey for a sweet pick-me up after a long day of work. Tallinn's Old Town Pharmacy started selling marzipan as a medicine in the middle ages, claiming to be the original inventor of the sweet. Estonian marzipan traveled far, becoming a favourite of the Russian emperor's court in St. Petersburg in the 19th century. Visitors can get a taste of the original marzipan recipe at the Maiasmokk Cafe in Old Town Tallinn, the longest continually operating cafe in Estonia.
