Once you’ve landed at Tallinn Airport and collected your car, there are so many places for you to visit in this amazing Baltic State.
The obvious place to start is the Estonia’s capital, Tallinn. Dating as far back as the 11th century, the city’s Old Town boasts winding cobbled streets and wonderful architecture which ensures it ticks all the culture boxes. Head to Kadriog Park and Palace if you want to escape the city for some peace and quiet or stop off at one of the many wonderful bars and cafés for a drink or two.
Head south-west from Tallinn Airport and you will soon come across Haapsalu. This peaceful, yet popular spa and seaside town is the perfect place to take in Estonia’s amazing culture, whether you are checking out the resort’s unique wooden buildings such as the Kuursaal or taking in the history of the extraordinary Episcopal Castle.
Just a short drive east from Tallinn is Narva. Sitting on Estonia’s border with Russia, this wonderful city stands out for the Friendship Bridge – a crossing that leads tourists over the Narva River and into Ivangorod on the Russian side of the river. The dominating Hermann Castle is the best preserved in the country and home to an excellent museum that covers Narva’s history in great detail.
The university city of Tartu is another must see part of Estonia and is a relaxing drive south from Tallinn. Known as the City of Good Thoughts, this is officially the oldest city of Estonia and located on the Emajõgi River. One of the architectural highlights is certainly St John’s Church which is considered one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture in Europe.
