The best of Estonia (nature)...

by song99

The best of Estonia (nature)...

I am planning a 2 week Estonia trip, after a 2 week Latvia trip this summer. I want to focus on pristine nature, and the great outdoors. If you know of any places off the beaten track (especially since I am going in summer, and I don't want to go to touristy places, especially tourist traps, rather quiet, untouched natural areas of Estonia. Anyways, if you live in Estonia, and are fond of nature, photography, and hiking, please help me. Thanks.

WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR:
1) memorable/dramatic scenery, landscape photography, or specifically where to find the best (viewpoints, vistas, natural views, panoramas, etc..)
2) also looking for the unique outdoors, and other amazing, breathtaking views?

WHAT I'VE FOUND SO FAR:

-Tartu, Elva Vitipalu Lake, Võrtsjärv Lake (northern or western shore), Karula National Park, Haanja National Park (access from Otepää)
-Parmu, Soomaa National Park , Matsalu National Park
-Saaremaa, Angla windmills, Kuressaare, Vilsandi National Park
-Hiiumaa island (ferry from Haapsalu), Sääre Tirp (Kaasari)

Thanks

Saaremaa with Sõrve Peninsula and Vilsandi is definitely worth a visit. Otepää's surroundings are beautiful, too. You have plenty of time in Estonia, so you can see a lot of nature here.

Friendly people (and most speak good English)

by BillNJ

While not the most outgoing people in the world, the people of Tallinn are very friendly and kind. Also, most of the local people that I met spoke pretty good English. This is especially true of the young people because English is a mandatory subject in the schools.

We did not have a need to buy a Tallin card, but we did see them for sale in the Old Town below Toompea where I would not have expected it. Public transport is free if you have a Tallinn Card, although in Old Town there are no buses or trams because the streets are too narrow.

Apparently you can get it on line. An adult card costs 12 EUR for 6 hours to 32 EUR for 72 hours. The 6 hour card doesn't include all of the items on the longer length cards.

Tallinn Card is:

• non-refundable and cannot be exchanged for other types of cards;
• valid only when the date and time are marked on the card;
• valid for only one admission to each establishment.

Free with Tallinn Card:

Probably visiting major tourist destination in Estonia (Tallinn) you want to visit also other places in Estonia.
Decide to go to the East - to Narva city on the border of Russia. Narva is one of the largest and oldest cities in Estonia.
In middle ages Narva was a city of kingdom of Sweden. Main attraction of Narva is a beautiful castle and bastions., Narva river and view to the Ivangorod stronghold on Russian side.
