Estonia

Estonia is a Baltic state in Northern Europe having land borders with both Latvia and Russia. Estonia’s coastline lies on the Baltic sea and the Gulf of Finland. The city wall in Tallinn Estonia is a Baltic gem offering visitors the chance to see a tiny dynamic land on the shores of the Baltic Sea. Glorious beaches pepper the extensive coastline, although the swimming season is short. After all, the Baltics are not renowned for warm weather – something that any visitor to Estonia must be aware of — the summer is short and the winter is severe. Tallinn‘s medieval old town was built by German crusaders in the Late Middle Ages and is in magnificent condition, with the medieval city walls and towers almost completely intact and it rates as one of Europe’s best preserved medieval old towns
