From Tenet movie to green destinations in Estonia

This autumn has been full of activities in the field of Estonian tourism. We'll give you, dear honorary consuls, a small overview of the activities that may help you to introduce Estonia as an attractive tourist destination in your homeland.

Tenet – iconic filming locations in Tallinn

Tenet, The Warner Bros production from director Christopher Nolan created a real buzz around Tallinn. Rightfully so. Tenet has been the largest Hollywood film shoot in Tallinn, not only boosting the country's standing on the global production map but showcasing some of Tallinn's most iconic landmarks that the film fans can plan their itinerary around. Look at our selection of the must-see locations featured in the blockbuster.

By the way - last year Tallinn's Christmas Market was named the best in Europe. This year, it's been named the second safest amidst the pandemic.

7 of top 100 sustainable destinations are in Estonia

For the sixth time, the Sustainable Top 100 Destinations list was unveiled at the first-ever online Global Green Destinations Days (GGDD). The Sustainable Top 100 Destinations competition is organised to showcase sustainable tourism stories and good practices of destinations, as inspiring examples to others, to tour operators and to travellers. By publishing this annual list and by sharing their destination management good practices and success stories, the initiators acknowledge the steps taken towards making tourism destinations more sustainable, responsible and more attractive from a visitor experience point of view.

Estonia's winners are the islands of Hiiumaa and Saaremaa, Järvamaa, Lahemaa, Tartu, Pärnu and Rakvere

Nominations were evaluated by the Sustainable Top 100 Team, country experts and Green Destination Partners, coordinated by Green Destinations. This year, the selection was more than ever determined by the quality, effectiveness and transferability of the Good Practice Stories that were submitted by the destinations. Top 100 participants have been invited to be featured in the Good Travel Guide, enabling them to tell their sustainability stories to interested travellers.

In addition to this, destination Pärnu won the main prize for sustainable tourism in the Baltic Sea region and Saaremaa island came second! And the famous Tallinn Christmas Market that was named the best in Europe last year, has this year been named the second safest amidst the pandemic.
