Park life this autumn

 Although it may not feel like it, it definitely looks like it — the autumn has arrived and painted over the parks and greenery across Estonia. The mild temperatures allow you to spend hours on end exploring the gardens and historical places across the country.

Kadriorg Park is the most famous park in Estonia, covering around 70 hectares. There are a number of museums in this 18th century masterpiece, including KUMU (the Estonian Art Museum), Kadriorg Art Museum and the Mikkeli Museum. Oru Park with its gentle streams and scenic valleys in northeastern Estonia is a larger, more natural and relaxed example of local historical parks. Honourable mentions in this category go to Toomemägi in Tartu and Narva River Promenade on the border of Estonia and Russia.

Perhaps you'd like to learn something new while taking in the fresh autumn air? If you'd like to build something new using your very own two hands, check out the nearby Atla manor. Dating back to as early as the 15th century, the manor today is a dedicated workshop of woodwork and ceramics using materials sourced from the surrounding nature.
