Travel Forums Europe Recommendations for Estonia?

Sander has indicated that this thread is about Estonia

I'll be in Estonia for a week and a half next month. The plan so far is Tallinn, Lahemaa National Park, maybe a daytrip to Narva from there, and then Tartu + surrounding area.

Looking specifically for where to go around Tartu for good hiking / nice scenery. Is it worth going all the way south to Karula National Park, or are there comparable regions further north? Also would like recommendations on accommodation; hostel, b&b, hotel is all fine, as long as it's a place that you can actually recommend, and stands a bit above the crowd.

Sorry Sander can't help you with most of your request but when you're in Tallinn and hungry, visit F-Hoone in Kalamaja and in the Old Town try a fantastic little place called Kohvik Must Puudel

I'm not promoting but just wanted to share. I was in both places last month and really loved them.

I've only seen Tallinn's Old Town, which is amazing. I visited it on a day trip from Helsinki, Finland. There's a hydrofoil that makes a quick crossing. If you haven't been to Finland, maybe you could try a day in Helsinki? It's a beautiful city, and the people are very friendly.

Hey Sander,

I was there only a few weeks ago. There's a good hostel quite close to everything called the Red Barron owned by an Aussie bloke named Craig who is really friendly and will look after all your needs. Its very clean and has a good atmosphere at night. Plenty of fun things to do.

We did a soviet Prison tour which cost us 9Euro, it was only for about an hour which was good cause it wasn't to drawn out, just enough time to see what you want then get out of there. Also we went to a shooting range there. Now I'm definitely not a gun person by all means, but I must say it was really cool and fun. It was about 70 Euro, and we shot about 6 different guns I think.

Anyway if you Speak to Craig at Red Barron he can organise that plus other things, Good luck ;)

madpoet: We're actually flying into Helsinki and taking that fast ferry to get to Estonia, yeah. Great way to see a bit more. :)

Jason, zaksame: Thanks! I'll look into those.
