Soviet Life - Eastern Estonian Industrial Landscapes

There's no better way to get that back-in-the-USSR feeling than travelling to the cities of Estonia's industrial east.

Between viewing the unique ash mountains and industrial landscapes, you'll hear all about what life was like in the days of the sickle and hammer.

A major highlight of the tour is the unforgettable, underground Kohtla Mining Museum, a former working mine where you'll don a jacket, helmet and miner’s lamp before heading underground to learn all about oil shale extraction. On the way back we can make a short stop at the impressive Ontika limestone cliffs and Valaste waterfall.

Additional information: Kohtla-Nõmme is situating 150 km from Tallinn. Comfortable footwear and warm clothing are needed for visiting the mine in summer-time. Temperatures can drop to +8 C.
