Medieval old towns with their ghosts and legends, deserted beaches, impressive ancient manor houses and forests rich with wild animals – Estonia has much to offer the discerning traveller. Although the country itself is small (17,413 sq miles), it’s very diverse.
Tallinn's old town was built by Germans in the Middle Ages and is in magnificent condition. Most people agree it is one of the most impressive cities in Europe and has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1997.
Estonia is a member of the European Union and NATO although some traces of the Soviet era are still there to see.
There are numerous music related events and festivals all year round including four active opera houses around the country.
Islands (such as Kihnu) and Setumaa (in South Estonia) preserve their own traditions even until today. Both Võrumaa and Mulgimaa are also culturally culturally interesting and diverse regions.
