What’s on this week

Happy Spring! Here’s a look at what’s going on in Tallinn this week:

 

Lady Day – 25 March

Lady Day on March 25 is a widely celebrated holiday in Estonia. Traditionally, by March 25 women had to have finished their handicrafts. Afterwards they would wear white, go to the pub and drink red drinks. Lady Day also marked the beginning of spring.

The Estonian Open Air Museum will celebrate Lady Day with big pancakes and red drink.
