About Estonia

Boasting a unique blend of history, nature, and innovation, Estonia has long been considered a jewel of the Baltics. Nestled in Northern Europe, this nation of just 1.3 million people is renowned for its breathtaking landscapes and medieval charm.

Tallinn, the capital, showcases a perfectly preserved Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, with cobblestone streets and Gothic architecture. Explore its historic churches, museums, and vibrant cafe culture.

Estonia’s natural beauty is equally impressive. Over half the country is covered in pristine forests, while thousands of lakes and islands offer idyllic retreats. The Lahemaa National Park and Soomaa National Park are perfect for hiking and wildlife enthusiasts.

Estonia is at the forefront of digital innovation, offering e-residency programmes and a tech-savvy society. The country is a hub for startups, and its commitment to e-governance is world-renowned.

Estonia’s rich cultural heritage, lively festivals, and traditional cuisine complete the experience. Sample black bread, hearty stews, and join in with folk traditions. Estonia is an unmissable European destination, where the past and future collide harmoniously.
