"Estonia" is a Baltic state in northeastern pe. It has land borders with Latvia and Russia. With a coastline on the Baltic Sea and Gulf of Finland, Estonia also has sea borders with Finland and Sweden.

Medieval city wall in Tallinn

Estonia is a Baltic gem offering visitors the chance to see an exSoviet occupied country that is now proudly part of the pean Union. Traces of the Soviet era are still there to be seen — e.g. Paldiski, a deserted Soviet army base that was once offlimits to Estonians themselves, can easily be visited on a day trip from the capital, Tallinn. Tallinn"s medieval old town was built by the Germans in Middle Ages and is in magnificent condition, with the medieval city walls and towers almost completely intact and it rates as one of pe"s best medieval old towns. Glorious beaches pepper the extensive coastline, although the swimming season is short. After all, the Baltics are not renowned for warm weather something that any visitor to Estonia must be aware of — the summer is short and the winter is severe.

After 7 centuries of German, Danish, Swedish, Polish and Russian rule, Estonia attained independence in 1918. Incorporated into the USSR in 1940, it regained independence in 1991 through its Singing Revolution , a nonviolent revolution that overthrew an initially violent occupation. Since the last Russian troops left in 1994, Estonia moved to promote economic and political ties with Western pe. It is now one of the moreprosperous former Communist states, enjoying a hightech environment, an open and liberal economy and a transparent government system. On the other hand, it is faced with a fairly low (but growing) GDP per capita (in a pean Union context), as well as a very low birth rate, which is creating a population decline. Between 19912007, the country saw rapid economic expansion, leading it to be among one of the wealthiest, and the most developed of the former Soviet Republics. However, it"s economy was badly damaged during the ongoing Global recession. By 2011, the was adopted as the official currency.

Since accession to the EU, Estonia is becoming one of the most popular destinations in NorthEastern pe with (EU highest) 30% growth in the number of visitors in 2004, according to stat.

; "Climate" : maritime, wet, moderate winters, cool summers
; "Terrain" : marshy, lowlands; flat in the north, hilly in the south
; "Elevation extremes" : "lowest point:" Baltic Sea 0 m "highest point:" Suur Munamägi 318 m (in the south east of Estonia, 20km north of the main highway that runs from Riga to Russia close to the borders of Estonia with both countries).
; "Geography note" : the mainland terrain is flat, boggy, and partly wooded; offshore lie more than 1,500 islands and islets
;"Nature" : World War II and the subsequent occupation were devastating on humans, but the destruction and the closure of large areas for military use actually increased Estonia"s forest coverage from about 25% before the war to more than 50% by 1991. Wolves, bears, lynx, elks, deers as well as some rare bird and plant species are abundant in Estonia. The wild animals from Estonia are exported to some EU countries for forest repopulation programmes. Most animals can be hunted according to yearly quotas.

* "National holiday" : Independence Day, 24 February (1918); note 24 February 1918 was the date of independence from Soviet Russia, as 20 August, 1991 was the date of reindependence from the Soviet Union. Each 24 February, a grand ball is held by the president for the prominent and important members of society and foreign dignitaries.
* "Jaanipäev" : St John"s Day or Midsummer Day held on the night of 2324 June. The evening of the 23rd and well into the morning of the 24th is celebrated with bonfires and a traditional festive menu concentrating on barbeques and drinking.
* "Võidupüha" (Victory Day) : 23 June is celebrated to commemorate the decisive victory over BalticGerman forces in the War of Independence.
* "Christmas" : or Jõulud is also celebrated in Estonia, this is strictly a family event.
* "New Year"s Eve" : As a Soviet province, the authorities sought to promote the New Year holiday as Christmas was all but forbidden for its alleged "religious" and "nationalist" character. After the restoration of independence, the significance of the New Year decreased, but it is still a dayoff and celebrated. This day is used by the leaders of the country to address the nation.

Estonia itself is divided into 15 counties (or "maakonnad", singular "maakond"). However, to bring out the unique characteristics of Estonia, we use 4 distinctive regions in this guide. As the country is small, "most destinations can be reached within a couple of hours from Tallinn".

Get in

A growing number of foreign visitors have been traveling to Estonia in recent years. According to Statistics Estonia the nation"s statistics agency, 1.3 million foreigners visited the country in 2000, and that number climbed 38 percent to 1.8 million foreigners by 2005.

By plane=
Tallinn is Estonia"s international gateway. In addition to direct daily flights to/from all major Scandinavian (Stockholm, Copenhagen, and Oslo) and Baltic cities (Riga and Vilnius), there are direct flights from all major pean hubs like London, Paris, Frankfurt, Brussels and Amsterdam and regional hubs like Prague and Warsaw. Eastward connections are from Moscow, () and Kiev. Local carrier Estonian Air provides half of the services and the rest is provided by Finnair, SAS, Lufthansa, LOT, CSA, Air Baltic, Ryanair and others.

Ferry lines connect Tallinn with Sweden (Stockholm), Finland (Helsinki, Mariehamn) and also with Germany (Rostock) during the summer months. TallinnHelsinki is one of the busiest searoutes in pe and has daily 20 ferry crossings and nearly 30 different fastboat and hydrofoil crossings (the latter do not operate during winter). For details see Port of Tallinn passenger schedules .

Minor international routes include recently reestablished connection between Latvia port of Ventspils and the island of Saaremaa and Paldiski Kapellskär (Sweden) with two different operators.

Get around
In Estonia, the public transport system is welldeveloped and it is preferable to walk, cycle or use public transport, given the local Eastern pean style driving culture may be dangerous for unexperienced.

By train
Estonia"s train network does not cover the whole country. The quality of services has suffered considerably from privatisation and the main means of local transport is now the bus. Tallinn has three frequentlygoing local train lines (TallinnKeilaPaldiski/Riisipere and TallinnAegviidu) see: .

Domestic routes are operated by Edelaraudtee .

The TartuTallinn train route is good, fast and offers wireless internet access.

By bus
Estonia has a comprehensive bus network all over the country. All bigger cities like Tartu, Pärnu, Viljandi and Narva are accessible by bus. There is a journey planner called , in Estonian, English and Russian. There is also a timetable search at . But check also (only between bigger cities and to outside Estonia).

By bicycle
The international bicycle project BaltiCCycle may provide you with a lot of information and help.

By thumb
Hitchhiking in Estonia is generally good. The Baltic countries have a strong hitchhiking culture.

By car
The road system is quite extensive although road quality varies. The speed limit in countryside is 90 km/h and 50 km/h in the cities unless specified otherwise. Passengers are expected to wear seat belts. Lights must always be switched on.

In the central areas of bigger cities, a fee is levied on parking cars, but finding a provider of tickets is sometimes difficult as mobile parking is widespread.

Estonia has lots of car rental companies and the level of English spoken by their representatives is generally very high. If you go to Level 0 of Tallinn international airport, there are several car rental agency counters.

Car rental in Estonia is very cheap compared to Western pe. You can get a decent car shared between two people for approximately 150EEK/person/day e.g. a 2004 Fiat Punto.

An excellent day trip is to drive from Tallinn to Tartu. It takes about 2.5 hours each direction.

As of September 3, 2006, the drive from Tallinn to Tartu has been much improved. Outside of Tallinn, it is a two lane paved road with some construction ongoing to upgrade it. It takes two to two and a half hours. There are few sights of interest along the way. The terrain is flat and most of the road is bracketed by a birch tree and a few pines. Sam"s grill is recommended; about 1/2 way between Tallinn and Tartu as a place to stop. There is a gas station next door.

Driving in Estonia can be more dangerous than in much of the pe and United States.
Some drivers can be aggressive, recklessly overtaking vehicles and traveling at high speed, even in crowed urban areas. Estonian laws against driving under the influence of alcohol are strict and follow a policy of zero tolerance. Unfortunately, accidents involving intoxicated drivers are distressingly frequent.
You should always remain alert to the possibility of drunk drivers and drunken pedestrians. Standards of driving can range from bad to downright lethal. The best advice is to drive defensively: don’t assume your fellow drivers will do what you expect them to do, like avoiding overtaking in poor visibility or signal before they merge into your lane. If you can avoid it, it’s probably best not to drive on intercity highways.

The official language is Estonian which is linguistically very closely related to Finnish. At the same time many in urban areas (especially younger people) speak English well. According to the barometer poll of 2005, 66% of Estonians can speak some Russian. This does not include nativelanguage speakers. Thanks to heavy tourism and TV broadcasts from the other side of the gulf, Finnish is also spoken quite well by many people in Tallinn, the capital. German is taught at school in Estonia and a large number of people can speak some (22% according to barometer).

There is a large Slavic minority, particularly Russian and Ukrainians (some 25%).


Medieval History & Manors

The main reason most people first come to Estonia is to see the best protected and intact medieval city in pe Tallinn. The unique value of "Tallinn"s Old Town" lies first and foremost in the wellpreserved (intact) nature of its medieval milieu and structure, which has been lost in most of the capitals of northern pe. Since 1997, the Old Town of Tallinn has been on UNESCO"s World Heritage list.

Living under the rule of Scandinavian kings, Russian empire and Teutonic Knights has left Estonia with unique and rich blend of historic landmarks. Over one thousand manors were built across Estonia from the 13th century onwards. Some of the manors have perished or fallen into ruins but a lot have been reconstructed and now are favourite attractions with tourists. Nowadays there are "about 200 manor houses" under state protection as architectural monuments and 100 in active use.

Islands & Coastline

Bogs are clean in Estonia and provide a unique swimming experience

Jägala falls to 20°C in winter

Estonia has "over 1,500 islands". The nature is essentially untouched and offers quite a different beach experience with their remoter rustic feel. Most of the public beaches are sandy and the average water temperature is 18°C in summer. Inland waters and some shallow bays" waters are even warmer.

The largest island is Saaremaa with an intact and wellrestored medieval castle in its only city, Kuressaare. Stone fences, thatched roofs, working windmills and home made beer are all distinctive to Saaremaa. Hiiumaa, on the other hand, is well known for its lighthouses, unspoilt nature, the Hill of Crosses and the sense of humour of its inhabitants. Both islands have an airport so they can be quickly reached from Tallinn.

Other important islands include Kihnu, Ruhnu (with its "singing sand" beach), Muhu and Vormsi, each with its own unique characteristics. Most of the other tiny Estonian islands don"t carry much cultural significance, but can be appealing for bird watching, canoeing, sailing or fishing etc.

In July and August, Pärnu, Estonia"s summer capital, is the main attraction. The coastline itself has loads of untouched beaches and a tour from NarvaJõesuu (in the East) towards Tallinn is great for exploring the coastline. Some of the well known places include Toila, Võsu, Käsmu and Kaberneeme.


"Tickets for events" can be bought online via or the lately established .

Guided Tours
There are a number of private companies who offer walking tours and day trips from Tallinn.

*Day tours from Tallinn

*Tallinn walking tours.


The Estonian kroon (EEK) ceased to be legal tender on January 15, 2011, but any kroons you have left over can be changed into euros at any Estonian bank until the end of 2011 and indefinitely at the Bank of Estonia at a fixed rate of 15.6466 kroon to €1.

ATMs and currency exchange offices ("valuutavahetus") are widely available. You will get the best rates by exchanging only after arrival in Estonia. Avoid changing money in the airport or port as the rates are lower.

Estonia remains cheaper than Western pe, but it is no longer the bargain basement it used to be; and in touristy areas (say Tallinn"s Old Town), prices are almost at Scandinavian levels.

Estonian food draws heavily from German and Scandinavian cuisine. The closest thing to a national dish is "verivorst", black pudding, served with "mulgikapsad", which is basically sauerkraut stew.

Many types of food are close to Russian and have their equivalents almost exclusively in former USSR, such as "hapukoor", smetana in Russian, a sour 20%fat milk dressing for salads, especially "kartulisalat" or "potato salad".

As Estonia used to be a food massproduction powerhouse in the times of USSR, some of its foods, unknown to Westerners, are still wellrecognized in the lands of the CIS.

Among other everyday food, some game products are offered in food stores in Estonia, mostly wild boar, elk sausages and deer grill. Some restaurants also offer bear meat.

For those with a sweet tooth, the national chocolate manufacturer is "Kalev", with many specialist stores around the country as well as supermarkets retailing the product.

The more adventurous may want to try "kohuke", a flavoured milkcurd sweet covered with chocolate and available at every supermarket.

Like their neighbours the Finns and the Russians, the Estonians know their alcohol. Favorite tipples include the local beer "Saku" or "A. Le Coq" , the local vodka "Viru Valge" (Vironian White) and the surprisingly smooth and tasty rumlike herbal liquor "Vana Tallinn" (Old Tallinn) , famous in the countries of former USSR.

A local soft drink is "Kali" (the Estonian equivalent of "kvass"), made from fermented brown bread. It can be described as an acquired taste.

Many locals also swear by "keefir", a fermented milk concoction.


Number of hotels has exploded from few to tens and hundreds after Estonia restored independence. In 2004, Tallinn achieved first place among the Baltic Sea cities in the number of overnight stays in hotels, though still behind Stockholm and Helsinki in the number of total overnight stays.
A list of bigger hotels as well as some restaurants and nightclubs could be found at "Estonian Hotel and Restaurant Association" .

As Soviet collective farms were disbanded, many farmers switched to running "turismitalud," or tourism farms, which are inexpensive and indispensable places for spending holidays in the nature, usually in a former farm house. A site on "Estonian Rural Tourism" provides information on the tourism farms in Estonia. Hostels are a another popular option for budgetsensitive travellers; see the website of the "Estonian Youth Hostel Association": .

The official tourism site also has information and listings about B&B accommodation, youth hostels, camping and caravan sites etc.

Estonia has a fair amount of foreign students studying in its universities, especially from Nordic countries, as Estonian diplomas are recognized throughout the EU. See the articles for university town Tartu and capital Tallinn for details.


No obstacles exist to citizens of EU countries to come to invest and work in Estonia. Citizens of developed nonEU countries are exempt from shortterm tourist visas. Swedes and Finns have by far the largest working community of postSoviet foreigners in Estonia. Estonia may have had rocketlike growth in recent years, but only from a very low base as a former Soviet republic, and average local monthly salary (4th quarter 2007) is around 800 EUR.

Education is highly valued in Estonia because as a small nation with no exceptional natural resources, they believe that the only way to be competitive is to absorb knowledge. There are so many highly educated people in Estonia that it is a problem in the labour market there aren"t enough workers for jobs that requiring minimal education.

Considerable investments and some workers are constantly coming from CIS countries, though significant legal restrictions are imposed.

"Citizenship and Migration Board" is the authority responsible for dealing with the paperwork.

"CV Online" is one of the oldest Estonian recruitement and HR services operating in 9 countries (as of 2005).

Stay safe

The published crime rate increased dramatically in 19911994 after democratic freedoms were introduced. In a large part, this is due to the fact that crime was a taboo subject before 1991, as Soviet propaganda needed to show how safe and otherwise good it was. However, it is still a significant problem in Estonia. The murder rate per 100,000 inhabitants, as of 2000, was some 45 times higher than in Sweden and Finland, although still significantly lower than in its biggest neighbour, Russia.

Today, the official sources claim achieving considerable reduction in crime statistics in the recent years. According to Overseas Security Advisory Council crime rate in 2007 was quite comparable to the other pean states including Scandinavia. Criminal activities are distributed unevenly across the territory with almost no crime in the island areas and a considerable rate of drug dealing in predominantly Russianspeaking industrial area of NorthEast. In Tallinn, petty crime is a problem and there are some incidents involving tourists, mainly pickpocketing (especially in the markets). Tallinn Old City and other main tourist attractions are closely watched by local police and private security companies.

The majority of Estonians drive carelessly, with about 280 killed and 1840 people injured. Estonia has strick drunk driving laws with a policy of zero tolerance, however accidents involving intoxicated drivers are a major problem. Estonian traffic laws requires headlight use at all times while driving and use of a seatbelts by all passengers is mandatory. In practice, these laws are widely ignored.

The police are very effective and they are not corrupt compared to neighboring Russia.

The main advice to anyone worried about personal security is to stay reasonably sober despite tempting alcohol prices. When driving, make sure you have had absolutely no alcohol beforehand.

For police, "dial 110"; for other emergencies like fires and so, call "112".

It has been mentioned that ordinary Estonians are unlikely to approach a complete stranger or a tourist on their own. If somebody suddenly turns to you in the street (with questions or matters of small business) keeping a cautious eye on your belongings would be wise.

"Open homosexuality" may be met with stares, although violence is very rare.

Stay healthy

For an Estonian, it is considered "mauvais ton" not to criticize the Estonian healthcare system. Recent EU studies showed, however, that Estonia occupies a healthy 4th place in the block by the basic public health service indicators, on the same level as Sweden. In fact, around 19982000, the Estonian healthcare system was remodeled from the obsolete USSR model, directed to coping with disastrous consequences of largescale war and made more uptodate by the experts from Sweden. Estonia has harmonized its rules on travelers" health insurance with EU requirements.

For fast aid or rescue, dial 112.

Estonia has pe"s second highest rate of adult "HIV/AIDS" infections, currently over "1.3%" or "1 in 77" adults. Generally, the rate is much higher in Russianspeaking regions like Narva or Sillamäe. Don"t make the situation worse by not protecting yourself and others.


The most common way of greeting is to shake hands. If there is a "long time no see" situation, then a hug may be suitable.

Do not raise your voice in a conversation. A decent silent conversation is the Estonian way of doing business and is much appreciated.

Be aware that camping on private lands is not allowed unless you ask for permission (which you will most likely get). Forest lands and riparians on the other hand are open for everyone and anytime.

Estonians are usually proud of their nation and their country because as a small nation they have managed to gain independence and survived all the rough times that centuries of history filled with wars has served them.

Around 25% of Estonia"s population is Russian. Any negative talk about the former USSR is not going to be understood in most cases.
