One of Europe’s emerging and most dynamic event and travel destinations, Estonia rarely fails to impress conference delegates with its combination of culture and city experiences, nature, centuries-old charm and amazingly modern, high-tech solutions.
First-time visitors are sure to be surprised by Estonia’s boutique ambience and captivated by the beauty of its rugged coastlines and pristine natural environment. In the charming capital and smaller towns one can experience both the medieval ages and also the more recent history of the country and learn about the unique culture that has been preserved by the small Estonian nation of only 1,2 million people.
Furthermore, visitors are sure to be impressed to learn about the dramatic transformation the country has undergone over the last couple decades, not only catching up with Western neighbours, but even pulling ahead of them with Estonian digital society. As much as it values its history, Estonia is one of the most technologically-minded countries in the world, a place where free WiFi coverage is available practically everywhere.
Tallinn is Estonia’s capital, and with a population of just over 440,000, it is the largest city in the country. The city is best known for its stunning Old Town, a centuries-old neighbourhood of cobblestone lanes, gabled houses, Gothic churches and charming squares, all surrounded by a system of sturdy defensive walls and towers. The area, which is protected as a UNESCO World Heritage site, is the spiritual heart of the city as well as the hub of its dining and nightlife scene. There are, quite simply, very few cities in the world that can rival Tallinn for its well- preserved medieval buildings and timeless atmosphere. Outside the walls of Old Town, Tallinn presents a number of exciting neighbourhoods to discover, each with a very different feel. The city’s modern side comes to light in the ultra-cool Rotermann City commercial/cultural zone as well as in the edgier Telliskivi area, a reclaimed industrial quarter exploding with creative and social energy. Both these districts are extremely central, making them perfect locales for meals and meet-ups around conference time. A bit farther out, a sense of serene, aristocratic refinement can be found among the park, palaces and art museums of Kadriorg, while the beach and forests of Pirita cater to those who love the great outdoors. In short, there’s something for everyone!
