All things historical, from swords to candlelight
Estonia is a land of contrasts, with heaps of historical stories and settings that should easily cure even the heaviest case of a writer's block. From medieval German merchants to the tsars of Russia, Estonia has hosted many visitors throughout the history each leaving behind a wealth of stories and legends. Monks, knights, merchants and countesses once filled the busy market tows of the prosperous medieval Estonia.
