As well as just getting outside and exploring there are some must sees on holiday in Estonia. The Jagala Waterfall is certainly one, it’s an 8m tall and 50m wide stunning sight to see just before the Jagala river flows into the Gulf of Finland. Capture that Insta-worthy post that’ll make everyone back home jealous. If you’re visiting in the winter, the water freezes over and becomes a wall of large icicles that glisten under the sun.
Another must visit is the tallest building in Estonia (as well as in the whole of Northern Europe) – Tallinn Television Tower. It stands 314m tall but once you get to 170m you have a stunning panoramic view of Tallinn. But that’s not all, within the levels there’s plenty to do for all. Head to the outdoor terrace on a sunny day, get involved with the interactive media to learn about Tallinn and Estonia, walk across the glass floor or even try the walk on the edge! There’s entertainment for children, a mini TV studio and a gift shop to get that all important souvenir.
With Estonia’s heavily influenced history from a variety of cultures, there is plenty to learn about, so put on your historian hat and head to some of the many museums in this intriguing country. Where better to start than the Estonian National Museum. Opened in the early 1900s, this museum showcases collected items from the most popular Estonian collector, Jakob Hurt. You’ll find everything from old folk clothes to old weapons that will really give you an insight into the history of Estonia.
Tallinn is the capital city to visit if you’re looking for a combination of the modern world, great nightlife and days full of adventure, as well as a destination rich in culture and history. You’ll find preserved old town centres just a stone’s throw away from the city’s bustling business centre with luxury hotels and large shopping centres. Estonia’s capital city is known as the most advanced digital society in the world all while home to one of Europe’s best preserved towns from the Mediaeval period. A real mix of the old and new.
There’s plenty of chances to try authentic Estonian food and right in the Old Town you can try some mediaeval dining – you don’t get to do that just anywhere! It’s the ideal destination for a short city break as the city centre is never more than a 15 minute drive away. You’ll always be right in the centre so you can tick everything off your to do list, even with a short space of time.
