Through BBC programme 'The Hairy Bikers Northern Exposure' we were re-acquainted with our colourful neighbours from the Baltics. The Hairy Bikers served up a dish full of the splendour of Baltic culture, history, architecture and, last but not least, the traditional Baltic cuisine. The programme showed us all there is to know about comfort food from across the Baltic Sea region.
Like its Baltic neighbours, Latvia and Lithuania, Estonia has a long history of occupation by invading empires. The positive side to Estonia's occupants is the stunning medieval architecture and grand manor houses that were left behind, now restored to near perfection.
Estonia, with its coastal region on the Baltic Sea, offers great traditional dishes with fresh fish and sea food, alongside wonderfully coloured salads and pickled condiments drawing on Russian and Polish influences. New Nordic cuisine, which originated in Denmark, and the trendy lifestyle approach of foraging in your local area has gained momentum, especially on the island of Muhu.
Modern Estonia has a very Nordic feel from its neighbours from the north, with glass and steel buildings springing up outside the fairy tale like capital city of Tallinn and its Old Town. You will enjoy the contrasts of the old and new and appreciate the warm atmosphere created by your welcoming hosts.
Tallinn is the largest city in Estonia and it centres around Toompea Hill, which is the home to Toompea Castle (the Estonian Parliament Building), the spectacular Alexander Nevsky Russian Orthodox Cathedral, a 13th Century Lutheran Cathedral and many other fascinating medieval structures. The views from the hill across the Gulf of Finland are fabulous. Find a winter wonderland in Estonia as Christmas approaches with the Tallinn Christmas Market, an excellent way to embrace the holiday spirit.
Aside from Tallinn, Estonia plays host to much more. Dense forests, rivers, lakes and waterfalls abound in northern Estonia. There are numerous islands off the coast of Estonia. Two of the largest are Saaremaa and Hiiumaa. The islands are sparsely populated, but offer some beautiful coastlines, unspoiled nature and the occasional castle. Saaremaa is an ideal place for a spa break and there are lovely coastal towns in Estonia such as Parnu, which are ideal for seaside holidays.
