Estonia may be small in size compared to the majority of the Baltic countries of Europe, but it offers a wealth of things to see and do.
The capital and largest city, Tallinn, is one of the most enchanting cities in Europe and it's sometimes hard to leave. The city is a mix of medieval and modern with cobblestoned streets, 14th century churches, the World Heritage Old Town, museums, cafes, boutiques and nightclubs.
Don't overlook the 1500+ islands - most are tiny, but the ones that are inhabited offer friendly atmospheres and traditional Estonian culture. Over 50% of Estonia is forested, with beautiful hiking trails. There are many castles and quaint little villages to explore all across the country, and, if a winter visit is on your list, a drive across the frozen Baltic Sea between the mainland and the islands is an unforgettable experience.

The winter months of January and February are the coldest, but there's plenty to do including ice-climbing, skating, ice sailing, or just enjoying the natural beauty.
