The Nordic country on top of the Baltics
Estonia is the smallest of the three countries. Although 2.000 km 2 bigger than Denmark, the population is only a little more than a quarter of Denmark – 1.3 million people, of whom almost a third live in the capital Tallinn.

Despite its relatively small size, Estonia offers the greatest variation of landscapes and environments
Enjoy the North
Known for the unspoiled nature of the “Bay Land” at the Finnish Gulf, with idyllic
fisher villages and beautifully restored Baltic German manors, and the vast swampy forests down
towards the sandy beaches of the enormous Lake Peipsi and the multiple medieval fortresses spread
all over the territory.
Go to the hilly South
With the highest point of the Baltics is popular among skiers (from here several
world champions in long race come!) and home of the “intellectual capital” Tartu with the old university
and the shores of Lake Peipsi with idyllic villages of the Russian Old Believers and the Seto people.
Or go West
Explore the archipelago as well as idyllic historical towns like Haapsalu and
Kuressaare, the summer capital Pärnu with its gorgeous spa hotels, wide sandy beaches and charming lively atmosphere. In the inland the bog lands of Soomaa offer a unique hideaway from human civilization and great hiking experiences whether you prefer to walk or ride in a canoe.
The capital, Tallinn
With its outstanding Old Town. It may not be the oldest, but it certainly has the best preserved medieval Old Town of any capital north of the Alps,
naturally listed on the World Heritage List of UNESCO.
