Tell me about the rest?

by drobert360 »

My only visit to Estonia was via cruise ship, a single day visit. We essentially only had time for the Tallinn old city and a bit of the new. We enjoyed this port of call. With a population of only 1.3 million (approx) the countryside is not densely populated. Has anyone been beyond the capital city ... I would enjoy hearing about the highlights of the rest of the country.

  I spent several days in Tallinn and Pärnu to the south.  I really liked Tallinn's old town much more than a lot of other countries. In fact it just seemed to have much more to do and also seemed pretty decent sized for such a smaller city.

  Pärnu is the resort town on the Gulf of Riga.  Spent 2 or 3 nights there last year and it was ok.  It was right before the big June tourist season, so the outdoor beer pubs on the beach were just being set up and the nightlife wasn't quite happening when I was there.  It was decent weather, but I found it hard to amuse myself for that long just wandering around town.  I was hoping for a big nightlife scene, but I was just there too early...

Thank you for the input ... I was wondering if the country is too low keyed. How were the basics in Pärnu (hotels, food, sights)?
