Estonia - General Information

Estonia faces the Baltic Sea & the Gulf of Finland and includes more than 1,500 islands, many lakes, old forests and rocky beaches. Over the centuries Estonia has been ruled by a few other countries, most recently the Soviet Union. Just over one million people reside here with most people speaking Estonian and about a third of the country speaking Russian.

The capital city, Tallinn is the country's cultural hub; inside of Tallinn is Old Town, a walled, cobble-stoned, medieval city. There are many shops and cafes and is a great place for tourists to visit. Tallinn still has a 15th century defensive tower, Kiek in de Kok. The Estonian History Museum located there is dedicated to the country's 20th century history. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral is also located in Tallinn and is a 19th century Russian Orthodox Cathedral. There are many interesting and enjoyable things to do in Estonia.

Their food traditions are heavily influenced by Finland and Hungary and will show many similarities. Food in Estonia is traditionally seasonal; meat, potatoes, dairy, vegetables and herbs fresh from the garden is what you'll typically find; there are also some delicacies like blood sausage served with lingonberry sauce. During the warmer months of summer, outdoor grilling is very popular. Kringle, sweet yeast bread flavored with cardamom, and Rhubarb pies are popular desserts. Kissel is a dessert soup or pudding made from a variety of fruits, it can be served hot or cold; any way that it has been made it is refreshing and delicious!

Summers are mild and there can be cooler temperatures on the islands. It can also be humid and breezy due to the proximity of the Baltic Sea and thunderstorms can occur commonly in the afternoon times. It might be a good idea to bring a light jacket and compact umbrella when visiting.
