Places to visit

The colours of Tallinn

 

Tallinn is Estonia’s bustling capital city and offers a lot of opportunities for travellers. The Old Town is one of the highlights, where you can see the 14th century Town Hall, the 19th century Alexander Nevsky Cathedral and the best view of Tallinn from the Toompea hill. You can also spend time at the Port of Tallinn and the Museum of Estonian Architecture or have a taste of Estonian’s cuisine and traditional craft beer at one of the many restaurants throughout the city. 

The Old Town of Tartu

Estonia's intelligence hub

 

Mostly known for its top-level university and the fact it’s the oldest city in Estonia, Tartu is definitely a destination not to be missed. The buildings in the city centre are just as impressive as the old wooden houses in the popular “Soup neighbourhood”. There every street is named after a soup ingredient such as potatoes, beans or peas, so you can create a recipe of your own while walking around and exploring this lively district.

Europe's easternmost destination

 

If you’re looking for travelling to the end of the world (okay, just the end of the European Union) the city of Narva, the easternmost destination might be the one for you. This place has a rich history, including being heavily bombed in the World War II. Luckily, it was not destroyed too much so you get to see some beautiful landmarks. The Hermann Castle is one of them and it dates back to the 13th century. If the beautiful scenery is not enough for you, inside the castle you will find a big collection of handcrafts and many opportunities for workshops, where you can watch and learn some of the skills used in the medieval times.

Historical gem

 

With more than 2,600 years of history, Viljandi is definitely the place to be if you’re looking for historic architecture. The Viljandi Order Castle, despite being mostly ruins, is one of the city’s biggest attraction and is not to be missed. Why you should add this little town to your list, though, is its annual folk music festival attracting more than 20,000 visitors. It’s the largest music festival in the whole country and there are small stages all around the city, throughout the whole day.

Between Estonia and Latvia

 

Have you always wanted to be at two places in the same time? Then the town of Valga is the perfect pick for you. It’s split in the middle between Estonia and Latvia, so there is an interesting mix of cultures, languages and traditions. Of course, the border statue between Valga and Valka is an absolute must. There you can have your picture taken while being in both countries at the same time. Once you’re done, you can experience the Estonian part and its beautiful Town Hall, Jaani Church and the interesting Valga Museum. If that’s not enough, head to the Military Theme Park or to one of the many hiking and biking trails along the Pedeli River.

Between the coast and the forest 

 

If you’re on your way to Finland, make sure you stop by Rakvere, an old city in northern Estonia. It has the perfect location of being close to coast and the Lahemaa national park, making it easy to have the best of both worlds. The city has become a popular tourist destination, as many events and festivals are held annually there. Our favourite highlight is the castle’s ruins, which have been turned into a theme park, where you can expect nothing else than dressing as knights and medieval ladies, torture chamber, wine cellar, alchemist’s workshop and many more.
