Unearth a fusion of fairy-tale charm, riveting history and Baltic cool with a stay at our carefully selected hotels in Estonia. You will want to dedicate some time to Estonia’s entrancing hilltop capital, Tallinn, with its ravishing warren of cobblestone streets that teem with enticing pastel-hued shops, pavement cafés, and chic restaurants. Yet, explore beyond this enchanting city along winding centuries-old postal roads and you will unearth a seductive country of endless sandy beaches, mountain resorts, and national parks. Through pristine wilderness you will don special bog shoes and ramble across squelchy marshlands, home to Estonia’s rarest plants and wildlife, and then eventually gather round a campfire for a delicious feast of slow-cooked game — in every sense it is a wonderfully evocative taste of rustic Estonia.
Discover colorful villages and towns peppering the landscapes, offering fascinating insights into centuries of Slavic tradition and heritage, such as Kolkja on Lake Peipus and the region of the ‘Old Believers’; browsing the local museums and ornate incense infused Orthodox churches you’ll learn more of this unique age-old Russian culture and its heritage. Scholarly Tartu is also certainly worthy of a couple of days: an elegant classicist city bustling with students, and its handsome main square is brimming with history and culture.
Throughout your journey, you can opt to stay in historic and charming 16th century country estates and opulent palaces that have since been converted into luxury hotels; Estonia certainly knows how to treat you like royalty and is a treasure trove of captivating sights and experiences.
