Tallinn's old town. Photo: hhj1


Soviet-occupied until 1991, Estonia is a society looking forward. The capital city of Tallinn may seem quaint, with two old towns and under 500,000 residents, but citywide wifi makes Tallinn one of the top digital cities in the world. In the south, the university city of Tartu has museums, galleries, and a rowdy nightlife. The Baltic sea coast is spotted with over 1500 islands where more traditional culture endures in fishing villages, medieval castles, and thatched cottages.

We’ve tipped you off to a traveler’s Estonia: budget-friendly, romantic, and not yet overrun with tourists. Go now.
