They may be the ones who relentlessly push us to our limits, but they are also the ones who selflessly lend a hand whenever we’re in our lowest points. Indeed, families are our most treasured people.
Reward your loved ones with some quality time on a trip to Estonia. Its oldest name was Maarahvas translated in English as “people of the land.” This country located west of Russia is currently one of the world’s fastest growing states in terms of economy and tourism. Aside from being known as the greenest nation on the globe, it’s a destination that’s affordable as well—a small price for memories that will last a lifetime.
Spend your vacation exploring the beauty of Tallinn, the capital and largest city. Traverse passageways and journey through time as the place offers many historical sites that tourists frequent for its stunning splendor. Discover breathtaking sights of the metropolis like the Toompea Castle whose popular myth also gave its name Lyndanisse; St. Olaf’s Church constructed in honour of King Olaf II of Norway; St. Catherine’s Passage popular among tourists for its medieval vibe and its many cultural shops; the Ivangorod Fortress standing proud at the border of Russia and Estonia overlooking the Narva River; and lastly take a shot of the Bull Tarvas situated in the town of Rakvere, considered the largest sculptured bull in Europe.
Families are our greatest strength. They help build who we are and what we become. Never forget to show them their worth, so indulge them in a vacation they’ll never forget by seeing the beauty of antiquity in Estonia.
