Attractions from Estonia


The castle of Hermanni kindlus

The greatest attraction in Narva is the castle Hermanni kindlus that rises off the banks of the Narva River as a true demonstration of power, looking over at the mighty Russia, which for so many years threatened the independence of Estonia. The castle has recently been renovated and contains the town museum.



The seaside and spa resort Narva-Joesuu is situated well outside of Narva and with its long sandy beaches of the Gulf of Finland it is a nice place to swim or contemplate the Eastern countries' formerly prosperous spa resort culture.



The town Otepää, situated about 50 km south of Tartu, is such an ideal place for cross-country skiing, that the Russian official training camp for cross-country skiing was placed here. Today the Russians are gone, but the area is still amazing, and makes a great place for skiing trips in the winter and long hikes in the beautiful nature during the summer.


Saaremaa Monument

During the Second World War, Saaremaa experienced a series of battles between the Nazis and the Red Army. Several villages were wiped out and an impressive monument in the shape of a 20-meter high sword marks this event

The Saaremaa meteor crater

Every visitor to Saaremaa should see the island's fantastic meteor crater, which is situated northeast of Kuressaare. It's the biggest of its kind in Europe and represents, with its enormous dimensions, a both intimidating and fascinating example of the unpredictability of nature.


Tallinn town hall

The medieval town hall in Tallinn was built during the reign of the Danes in the middle of the 14th century. With its many exhibitions and its museum it is a good place to start a historical tour of the historic city of Tallinn.

The Dannebrog fell in Tallinn

In 1219, the Danish flag Dannebrog fell from the sky in Tallinn and ensured the victory of Valdemar the Victorious and the Estonians' conversion to Christianity. A monument in the Royal Danish Garden of Tallinn marks the event.

The park at Kadriorg

The biggest park in Tallinn is the Kadriorg Park, which surrounds a large palace erected by the Russian Tsar, Peter the great. The baroque park as well as the baroque palace are quite impressive and are situated somewhat outside of Tallinn's centre, but if you are interested in history and fascinated by the pompous demonstrations of power of the past - or if you just like a nice trip in idyllic surroundings - the place is definitely worth a visit.


The National Museum

Many people consider Tartu the cultural centre of Estonia and the country's national museum is correspondingly placed here. Through the museum's exhibitions of costumes, furniture and crafts-work you get a good impression of the Estonian cultural history.
