Estonia - A short Guide

 

Estonia has a rich and diverse history as well as a very interesting past, which includes being occupied by Germans, Russians and the Swedish, there are elements of each culture to be seen all around the country. Perhaps the most striking example is the Medieval old town of Tallinn. Here you can see incredibly well preserved examples of Hanseatic architecture, it looks especially enchanting in winter when the buildings are layered with snow. It’s like wondering the streets of a fairytale, and not too dissimilar to cities like Nuremberg in Germany and Bruges in Belgium.The second largest city in Estonia is Tartu, which amongst other things, is often referred to as Estonia’s intellectual capital. It has a nice selection of architecture, but most of the medieval buildings were destroyed in the great fire of Tartu in 1775, so much of the city was rebuilt along Late Baroque and Neoclassical lines, a nice example of which is the Tartu Town Hall. If it’s Estonia’s cities that you’re interested in, then a visit to Viljandi should be on your list of things to do. It’s in the South of the country and is a small city full of cobbled streets, medieval architecture and a sky blue lake. If you’re interested in music, then a visit to Viljandi during the folk music festival in July is an absolute must to help you get a feel for the culture and old ways of the country. Other cities include the culturally diverse Jõhvi, the cosy Paide Town and the impressive Narva City, which is home to the best-preserved castle in Estonia and many fine examples of Soviet architecture.

 

Outside of the cities you’ll also find miles and miles wild areas including the Karula National Park and the Lahemaa National Park which is home to beautiful bays, peninsulas and forests. Best of all it’s just 50km east of Tallinn so it’s easy enough to reach by car from the capital. If you’re in the mood for a swim in the sea, then you should head to Vilsandi National Park that has 163km of sea as well as 160 island islets. If you’d like to explore more of Estonia’s coastline, then you could try Võsu which is a beachside village in Lahemaa National Park, Laulasmaa which you’ll find on the Lahepere Bay just 30 minutes away from Tallinn or Noarootsi which as well as being home to unspoiled natural landscapes and diverse flora and fauna was once also the settlement area of Estonian Sweded. If you’re hoping to take advantage of the beaches and wide open spaces in Estonia, then make sure you plan your trip well, as the summers in Estonia are short when compared to other European countries.
