The northernmost and smallest of the Baltic states, the country has charming old towns and heritage back to the Hanseatic League. Tallinn’s medieval old town was built by the Germans in Middle Ages and is in magnificent condition, and it rates as one of Europe’s best medieval old towns.

Estonia has over 1,500 islands. The nature is essentially untouched and offers quite a different beach experience with their remoter rustic feel. Most of the public beaches are sandy and the average water temperature is 18°C in summer. Inland waters and some shallow bays’ waters are even warmer.
Estonia has a comprehensive bus network all over the country. Nearly every city can be accessed by a direct bus from Tallinn or Tartu. All connections are available online through Tpilet.ee (for long distance connections) and Peatus.ee (for short distances and local connections).
