Flights to Estonia
Have you heard of Estonia?
You may know it as one of the post-Soviet Baltic states of Northern Europe and the home of gorgeous medievel town Tallinn, the best-preserved Old Town in the region. But did you know that Estonia’s air has frequently been considered the cleanest in the world by the World Health Organisation, or that 50% of the country’s total area of 45,000 square kilometres is covered by lush, pristine forest? Did you know that Estonia’s off-shore gems - in the form of 6 idyllic islands - contain some gorgeous, undiscovered beaches perfect for a tranquil beach vacation away from the crowds?
Did you know that Estonia is one of the few places in the world where you can actually drive on water? Did you know that Estonian architecture – with its large manor houses, grand cathedrals and cobbled streets – reflect German, Swedish and Russian influences, though it was a Soviet state for decades?
You didn’t know? Well, it’s high time for a visit to this amazingly beautiful country for an idyllic holiday away from the hustle and bustle of city life, where you can engage in a truly immersive experience amidst untouched nature and well-preserved history.
Estonia’s public transport network is generally efficient and extensive, so getting around the country isn’t difficult. Tourists staying within Tallinn have even less to worry about, as the city is rather small and compact – most tourist hotspots can be easily accessed by foot or bike from the city centre.
Those travelling out of Tallinn may want to consider renting their own vehicle, though, as Estonia is a great country for road trips. If you are there in winter, be sure to have a go on the Ice Road to get a feel of what driving on the Baltic Sea is like (it freezes in winter, creating an ice road that links Estonia’s mainland with Hiiumaa Island).
What to see and do
Say ‘Estonia’ and Tallinn, the country’s iconic capital city, may immediately come to mind. This association is for good reason, though – often considered one of Europe’s most charming cities, Tallinn was voted the European Capital of Culture in 2011 and is a darling of tourists worldwide. Constructed by German crusaders back in the 13th century, Tallinn’s Old Town (or Historic Centre) boasts some of the best-preserved historical architecture that can be seen in any Old Town today – medieval towers and city walls are almost completely intact, as are ancient monasteries, narrow winding streets, churches, merchant houses and more. Classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Tallinn is a must-see for all visitors to Estonia. Despite its popularity with the tourists, though, the region still maintains its local flavor: the Old Town continues to be a popular hang-out spot even for Estonians, with restaurants, bars and boutique shops hawking food and wares at decent prices.
