  • 6.  Sleepy fishing villages, working windmills, thatched cottages, plenty of deer, moose and birds plus a more secluded location help define Muhu as profoundly Estonian. St. Catherines church has pagan tombstones and is one of the oldest in Estonia http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=exNNiy899l0&f eature=bf_next&list=PL632D1DD0F69E2656
  • 7.  The second largest island was formed as a result of a meteor explosion. It has an airport with flights to Tallinn but you can also access via ice-road from the mainland, in winter. Hiiumaa is well known for its lighthouses, unspoilt nature, Hill of crosses and the sense of humour of its inhabitants. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DzCj1baC R2E&feature=bf_next&list=PL632D1DD0F69E 2656

  • 10.  It is said that in Pärnu, anyone and everyone can become an artist. Versatile architecture, beautiful parks and court yards, numerous galleries and art centres -- all combined with colourful crowd and easy-going flow of life is, without a doubt, a fertile soil for discovering your creativity. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uB6yd8u6uV4&l ist=PL632D1DD0F69E2656&index=3&feature=plp p_video 3:41min
  • 11.  Tartu has always been the intellectual capital of Estonia. It is the cradle of the Estonian Song Festival, Estonian Theatre and the Estonian State. In the period Estonians call "The national awakening" Tartu was known as the Athens of the Emajõgi River ("Mother River") and until now the city has retained its intellectual and bohemian ambience. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lWgvfwCz0- s&list=PL377D7C484182A9E9&index=8&feature=p lpp_video 2min
  • 12.  Tallinn is a mix of east and west. Its Nordic Lutheran culture and language connect it with Scandinavias Stockholm and Helsinki. But two centuries of Tsarist Russian rule and nearly 50 years as part of the Soviet Union have blended in a distinctly Russian flavor. Tallinn has modernized at an astounding rate since the fall of the Soviet Union, while also remaining one of the best-preserved medieval cities in the north of Europe. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7O7E- WlVjc&feature=fvwrel 3min

  • 14.  The Dominican Monastery was one of the most powerful institutions in medieval Tallinn – until it was comprehensively trashed by anti- Catholic rioters in 1525. The site was subsequently used as a school, hospital and arsenal before a new church was built in the mid- nineteenth century, which remains the main Catholic place of worship in the city. Some of the former monastery buildings now accommodate the Dominican Monastery Museum (Dominiiklaste kloostri muuseum), home to an extensive collection of medieval and Renaissance stone-carving, including some intricate fourteenth- century tombstones. Look out for a delightful relief of an angel set in a triangular frame courtesy of Arendt Passer – the doyen of sixteenth-century stone masonry who also worked on the portal of the House of the Blackheads at Pikk 26, and the tomb of Pontus de la Gardie in Tallinn Cathedral. Immediately south of the monastery, a narrow alleyway known as Katariina kaik ("Catherines Passage") runs round the surviving wall of the original monastery church, passing a string of craft workshops where you can observe potters, bookbinders and glaziers at work. http://www.kloostri.ee/?1,35,41,1
  • 15.  St. Olaf’s Church or St. Olavs Church (Estonian: Oleviste kirik) in Tallinn, Estonia, is believed to have been built in the 12th century and to have been the centre for old Tallinns Scandinavian community before Denmark conquered Tallinn in 1219. Its dedication relates to King Olaf II of Norway(a.k.a. Saint Olaf, 995-1030). The first known written records referring to the church date back to 1267, and it was extensively rebuilt during the 14th century. A legend tells that the builder of the church, named Olaf, upon its completion, fell to his death from atop the tower. It is said that when his body hit the ground, a snake and a toad crawled out of his mouth. There is a wall-carving depicting this event in the adjoining Chapel of Our Lady. In origin, St Olafs was part of the united western tradition of Christianity, whose polity continues in the Roman Catholic Church today. However, from the time of the Reformation the church has been part of the Lutheran tradition. Eventually proving surplus to the requirements of the Lutheran Church in Tallinn, St Olafs became a Baptist church in 1950.[2][3] The Baptist congregation continues to meet at St Olafs today. From 1944 until 1991, the Soviet KGB used Olevistes spire as a radio tower and surveillance point. Around 1500, the building reached a height of 159 meters. The motivation for building such an immensely tall steeple must have been to use it as a maritime signpost, which made the trading city of Tallinn visible from far out at sea. Between 1549 and 1625, until the spire burnt down after a lightningstrike, it was the tallest building in the world. The steeple of St. Olav has been hit by lightning at least eight times, and the whole church has burned down three times throughout its known existence. Following several rebuildings, its overall height is now 123.7 meters.
