Welcome to Estonia!




  • ...has a population of just 1.3 million but is larger than Denmark or Netherlands. Being among the least densely populated countries in Europe, Estonia makes for a great nature and city break destination for those looking to stretch out their limbs and enjoy some peace, quiet, and solitude.

  • ...is more than 50% forest. It's fair to say that Estonians have a certain tree-hugging spirit. More than half of the country is covered by forested land and almost a quarter is protected nature. As a result, Estonia has the 4th best air quality in the world.

  • ...has over 2000 islands. Estonia is the only Baltic country with a deep-rooted and extensive island culture. Although most are uninhabited, Estonian islands tend to be rural, with some holding traces of their local Viking and medieval legacy.

  • ...is a Digital Society. From voting to signing documents to doing taxes online, Estonia implements a hassle-free and modern approach to doing errands.

  • ...the capital of Estonia, with over 500 000 Estonians living there. That's more than 1/3 of our population!

  • ...ranked as a global city and has been listed among the top 10 digital cities in the world.

  • ...surrounded by Lake Ülemiste, which was supposedly born out of Linda's tears after our mythological folk hero Kaleva died. Lake Ülemiste is also Tallinn's main water supply.

  • ...full of restaurants, bars and cafes with a selection for everyone. For a great dining experience, check out the Visit Tallinn Eat & Drink section.

  • ...on the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list with its Medieval Old Town. It is one of the best preserved Hanseatic town centres in the world and definitely worth checking out.

  • ...as much modern as it is historic. Tallinn combines its modern and fast-paced city centre with relaxing cobblestone streets and beautiful architecture.
