Enjoying Estonian Parks this Autumn

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

Among parks in Estonia, Kadriorg Park is one of the most famous covering around 70 hectares. Built on this 18th-century beauty are a number of museums, including KUMU (the Estonian Art Museum), Kadriorg Art Museum and the Mikkel 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. For other spots to check out and relax, you should visit Toome Hill Park in Tartu and Narva River Promenade on the border of Estonia and Russia in Narva.

Perhaps you'd like to discover some of Estonia's history while taking in the fresh autumn air? If you'd like to build something new using your very own hands, check out the Atla Manor. Dating back to the 15th century, the manor today is a dedicated workshop for carpentry and ceramics using materials sourced from the nearby nature.
