Estonia is more than endless forests, high-tech digital solutions, new-Nordic cuisine and medieval architecture. This Northern country is also a versatile and interesting culture destination, and home to Tartu, the European Capital of Culture in 2024. Thanks to its compact size, even a long weekend trip to Estonia gifts the traveller with many opportunities to attend festivals and exhibitions in different parts of the country. And still have time to enjoy everything in between.

However, it is music that has always played a highly important role in the cultural identity of Estonians. Estonia stands out from its neighbouring countries with its unconventional classical music and passionate love affair with singing.
