If you were to play connect-the-dots with a map, Estonia would be the link between Scandinavia, Central and Eastern Europe. After learning of its hidden charms, you might find it impossible not to pay a visit.
Luckily you can land right in the heart of Tallinn by plane, ship, coach or train.
1. Land of capitals
While Tallinn is the official capital of Estonia, there are several other ‘capitals’ in their own rights: Tartu is the long-standing capital of culture, Pärnu of summer, Kuressaare of weddings, Jõgeva of frost and Türi of flowers and spring.
Estonia is a digital society which was the first country to implement online voting in 2005, and virtually all tax returns are filed electronically. Citizens can sign legal documents remotely with their ID cards and anyone in the world can apply to be an e-resident.
And yes, it’s true – there is 4G coverage even in the middle of the woods.
