I’m not going to lie; November in Estonia is a bit dreary. The brightly coloured leaves have more or less finished changing. The days are short, and the grey rainy days have yet to change to white snowy ones. But this is a great month to visit Estonia, and if you’re reading this, it means you’re already here. Great! So here is what you can look forward to: the Christmas season is just around the corner, and Estonians begin celebrating early. By the end of the month, the famous Town Hall Square Christmas Market will be in place, and the streets of the Old Town will be filled with the delicious smells of mulled wine, and traditional Estonian Christmas foods. At the beginning of the month, you can whet your appetite during Tallinn Restaurant Week. The opera and theatre season is in full swing. And best of all, you can easily book yourself into one of Tallinn’s many day spas for an afternoon of relaxation.

The season is changing, and so are we. The Baltic Guide has a new look! We have added more information into our already packed pages. Each month you can expect to find detailed information on upcoming cultural events, shopping, nightlife, travel in Estonia, Estonian history, and much more! But if there is something we missed, we want you to let us know, because after all, this is your guide to Estonia.

Happy travels!
