You will discover that Tallinn is an extremely attractive medieval town that has managed to keep most of its ancient buildings and city walls intact. It is, therefore, a treasure trove of historical architecture (listed by UNESCO on its World History List). When you climb the central area of Toompea you will enter a cobbled maze of ancient buildings surrounded by a well-preserved city wall and large green parks.
Tartu is Estonia’s second city and is a university town where English is widely spoken and you’ll be welcomed warmly by the cosmopolitan locals. It has an impressive Old Town, and the Estonian National Museum is a great place to explore.
Typical food and drink in Estonia
Black rye bread is the staple food of Estonia and is served with most traditional main courses after a salad dish to start and then a soup to follow. Pork is the most popular meat, but seafood is well liked too. Rich and meaty flatfish like herrings and flounder are particularly in demand.
