Official site

This compact corner of the Baltic is drawing trendy visitors seeking new destinations. Although a former Soviet Republic, Estonia shares ethnic and linguistic roots with the Finns. The countryside is dotted with medieval castles and manors.

 

Tallinn, the capital, is one of Europe's best-preserved medieval cities, famed for its ancient stone walls; winding, cobbled streets and torchlit alleys; secret stairways; and tower ramparts. See especially the early 13th-century Toompea Castle, Toomkirik (domed church) and Raekoja Plats (the city hall square). In summer, the sun never really sets, bringing out locals and visitors alike to enjoy the numerous outdoor cafes. Come winter, and the cafe scene moves into the unique cellar bars. Enjoy Estonia.
