Estonia never quite became a true Soviet republic following its annexation by Stalin in 1940, somehow maintaining its language and culture. Now a dynamic western European country, following its independence in 1991, travellers to Estonia are unfailingly charmed by medieval Tallinn and Estonia’s blend of formidable castles, wilderness areas and pristine beaches.

The country boasts wonderfully diverse architecture, from Russian Orthodox churches to isolated wooden windmills and Danish Castles. The capital, Tallinn, is often referred to as a fairytale city, rivalling the likes of St Petersburg and Budapest, but enjoying less fame on the tourist trail sees fewer crowds and a more authentic atmosphere. Most Estonia holidays begin here, exploring the maze of cobbled streets that teem with tiny shops, pavement cafés and stylish restaurants.

Don't miss impressive Kadriorg Palace, a Baroque masterpiece that was once Peter the Great's summer palace, and the border town of Narva which, to this day continues to defend Estonia as its imposing castle stares broodily across the river at Russia's Ivangorod Castle. Estonia is well suited to fly-drive holidays and easily combined with the other Baltic States, Lithuania and Latvia.

Tallinn
Top Destination
Tallinn
Tallinn is one of Europe's smallest capital cities, where the red roofs of the medieval city and maze of cobbled streets merge seamlessly with designer malls and gleaming skyscrapers, all observed imperiously by the hilltop Alexander Nevsky Cathedral.
Parnu
Top Destination
Parnu
Officially recognised as Estonia’s 'Summer Capital', Parnu's wide stretch of white, sandy beach and traditionally Estonian town centre makes it a wonderful place to unwind and enjoy the glorious delights of the Baltic Coast.
Saaremaa and Muhu
Top Destination
Saaremaa and Muhu
The islands of Saaremaa and Muhu in Estonia are the perfect destinations for a unique Baltic holiday. With dolomite cliffs, juniper forests, rustic farms, medieval towns and rolling meadows dotted with old windmills, these seem to be islands lost in time and their isolated nature offers an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Tartu
Christina Gibbons's Recommendation
Tartu
Tartu is arguably more authentic and sophisticated than Tallinn. The home of Estonia’s most distinguished university, Tartu is the country’s intellectual and cultural hub, and has a historic heart with beautiful cascades of classical 18th-century architecture, grand monuments and countless enlightening museums.
Narva
Christina Gibbons's Recommendation
Narva
Narva, situated on the border with Russia, is a fascinatingly city. Though it lies on the Estonian side of the Narva river, the city has a distinctively Russian look and feel to it, marking it out as a cultural hilighty and a charming symbol of the East clashing with the West.

Peter Wybrow
The northernmost of the Baltic states, Estonia is probably the most naturally diverse of the three republics, with beautiful and rugged coastlines as well as vast forests with an abundance of wildlife. When in the capital, Tallinn, visit the Pirita Olympic Yacht Centre and the Song Festival Grounds, held dear as the birthplace of the Estonian “Singing Revolution” in 1988 which saw the country move away from Soviet rule.

Peter's Tips
1
Visit Parnu in the summer when cultural festivals and classical music concerts are held.
2
When visiting in winter keep warm with a tot or two of Vana Talliinn – a sweet, dark-brown liqueur, flavoured with cinnamon and vanilla.
3
Estonia is relatively flat, so easily explored by bicycle. Saaremaa and Hiiummaa islands are picturesque and have minimal traffic.
