Things to See and Do in Estonia
From beautiful beaches along the coasts of the Gulf of Finland to the cobblestoned alleys of Tallinn, Estonia is a dynamic destination with lots to see and do. The seaside resort towns of Toila and Narva-Jõesuu in the east are some of the best in the country. In the west, Pärnu attracts throngs of Estonians during the summer. The islands of Estonia also offer unique destinations to explore with your car rental, including the thatched-roof houses, windmills and medieval castle on Saaremaa.
Tallinn’s medieval old town is one of Europe’s best preserved, and its nightlife is just as famous. There are also remnants of Estonia’s Soviet occupation, including the deserted Paldiski army base that can be visited with your car rental on a day trip from Tallinn. The capital is also within easy reach of Lahemaa National Park and several coastal towns, as are the ‘singing’ sand dunes of Laulasmaa and the summer resort of Vösu. In the south of Estonia, Tartu is a lively university town and the country’s second largest city. It is also the oldest city in Europe, with nearly a thousand years of history.
