The northern European country of Estonia, which borders the Baltic Sea and Gulf of Finland, is a brilliant holiday destination in the Baltic Region (the most northerly of the three Baltic States).
The country has more than 2,000 islands and boasts endless natural beauties from rocky beaches to idyllic lakes through its five stunning national parks and various nature reserves. Amazingly, around half of the country is forest!
Bogs and wooded swamplands cover over a fifth of the country while around 10 percent of Estonia is a nature reserve; this is truly a nature-lover’s paradise…
Estonia’s capital city of Tallinn is a fantastic holiday destination as the best preserved medieval city in Northern Europe! The city, located on the northern coast of the country, is known for its historic monuments (particularly in its Old Town surrounded by city walls and medieval towers) as well as its modern, vibrant nightlife and array of high-end shops and restaurants. The city is notably home to the Kadriorg Palace, a stunning 18th century Petrine Baroque palace surrounded idyllically by colourful gardens.
Make sure to visit Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in the Old Town; a spectacular cathedral perched atop Toompea Hill and discover the city’s popular Estonian Open Air Museum, a life-sized reconstruction of a historic village. Take a walking tour around this terrific capital city on your Estonia holiday – or even take a hot air balloon ride for breathtaking views of the country!
