When I told people I was going to Estonia, I was commonly met with blank stares. “Where’s Estonia?” they’d ask. “What can you see there?”
If you’ve never heard of Estonia before – here’s a quick geography lesson. Estonia is part of the Baltics, which includes Latvia and Lithuania, and sits right next to Russia. Estonia faces the Baltic Sea and it’s capital Tallinn is only a short two hour ferry ride from Finland.
For a small capital, Tallinn has a lot to offer if you know where to look and it’s a worthwhile stop while transiting to and from Helsinki, or from Latvia’s capital city Riga.
