We have some great news for the beginning of this semester!

Join us and ESN Tallinn for an amazing 10h day-trip to discover more of your new home-country Estonia!

We have prepared a great day full of activities. We start the day in the morning with something special for breakfast in the bus and we hit the road towards Rakvere, a small town 100km from Tallinn. In Rakvere, we will visit medieval fortress together with a local guide and you will all have an opportunity to practice for battles, see the cannon shot, visit torture chamber and the hell. After all these activities, we will eat some proper medieval lunch in the fortress restaurant and then it is time to discover Rakvere city by bus tour and continue our day.

Our next stop brings us to Käsmu – a small fishermen village with a very special museum – very well know Käsmu Maritime museum. A place that shows thel ife of this small village, life of sailors and boat construction tools and methods. After some history and chat with the charismatic owner, we will continue to see some manor houses on the road.

There are a few more important things to see and visit in this area – beaver track and Viru bog. These visits will bring us to wild nature and we are going to see, how beavers live and what they can cause with their lifestyle. And as it is autumn time, one must-visit place for all locals and visitors is Viru bog – a great hiking track for around 3km. Wooden path on water with autumn colors.

Despite the weather and temperatures, we have some hot tea and Estonian snacks to enjoy before we arrive back home in the evening.
