Easter at the Open Air Museum
Easter has many names in Estonian - Egg Holiday, Spring Holiday, Swing Holiday. You can learn about Estonian Easter traditions on 16 April at the Estonian Open Air Museum in Tallinn.
Lent finishes at Easter, meaning that meat can be eaten again. This can be seen during the celebration; the Open Air Museum’s Kolu Kõrts will be offering traditional Easter food. Eggs will be painted in front of the museum.
There are many other things to do in the other houses of the museum. You can learn about Orthodox traditions at the Setu and Peipsi Old Believers’ houses. An egg rolling competition, singing and egg painting will also take place.
