The most Northern of the Baltic countries, Estonia takes the spotlight in a short comparison between the three: it is the most developed and has a unique language and culture, strongly related to Finnish and Hungarian. In the past 60 years or so, Estonia has also been influenced by Russian culture, after being part of the Soviet Union. Since independence, this small country has grown into Europe’s digital powerhouse, almost all government and private services being offered online.
There are two alternative road trips that one could do in Estonia. The first and most advisable has its starting point in St. Petersburg, just over the border from Estonia, in Russia. St. Petersburg has a bigger airport than Tallinn, the capital of Estonia; it’s better connected to the world and cheaper to travel to. The problem is that if you require a visa to travel to Russia, then this whole procedure is going to have an extra as well as extra time. And thus comes, the alternative – landing in Tallinn, on Estonia’s tiny international airport. Anyway, both airports feature a large variety of car rental services, including international companies (that are the ones to choose if you want to travel across international borders).
Arriving from the east, Narva is the biggest city you’ll come across. Narva is home to one of Estonia’s biggest monuments – the Narva castle. Built in the 14th century, the citadel is split in two by the homonymous river. It’s open for visitors all year and includes a medieval weapons expo. Further South, the Peipsi Lake is Estonia’s biggest inland water surface, serving also as a border with its not so friendly neighbor, Russia. The road going along the lake is a spectacular drive, especially in the winter, when the water freezes and the scenery is all white and icy. Be careful though with the slippery surface on the roads during the winter. After passing the lake, you’ll end up in Tartu, Estonia’s second largest city and one of the oldest in the Baltic region. The Old Town of Tartu is riddled with cobble stone streets, classical architecture and numerous quaint cafes – definitely worth a visit.
Back on the road, you head on to Tallinn, Estonia’s capital and largest city. The historical center is the main attraction here – the guys at UNESCO also liked it so they decided to include it on the list of World Heritage Sites. The Town Hall square is reminiscent from the times when Estonians locked themselves inside the city walls in order to protect themselves from invaders. Saint Olaf’s church is thought to have been the tallest building in the world for some 80 years in the Middle Ages and is today visited by most travelers that come to Tallinn. Similarly, Tompeea Hill, housing the Parliament and Government of Estonia, should not be missed. If you get the chance, take a short cruise in the bay of Tallinn; the view of the skyline of the city is spectacular.
For the bravest of you, end your trip on one of Estonia’s 2222 islands that are easily accessible by ferry from Tallinn. Most of them are stuck in time, with traditions and customs still being respected, as well as a natural habitat that even the most environmentally friendly would envy.
