Estonian impressions - forum members visit Estonia

Post by Felis silvestris » August 20th, 2014, 9:50 pm

Several forum members have mentioned that they have visited Estonia, this year or in the past. It would be nice and also interesting for those who have not had the possibility to visit this lovely country, to see and read about such visits. So I invite everyone who would like to share photos and stories about your visit to Estonia. Where have you been, what have you seen, what did you like most?

I have made a small collage of photos - maybe it brings back some memories?

You maybe remember these elegant lamps? They somehow remind me of ice spoons, which is, again, quite fitting for a beach

Or the beautiful wooden houses

and maybe you stopped for a short dance with this gentleman?

Great photos and I do recognise quite a few places. Our route has some similarities to your route :mrgreen:
