While Tallinn is a glorious city, Estonia has a lot more to offer visitors than just its capital. One of the country’s major tourist draws is the idyllic Laheema National Park. So, we decided to get away from it all and take a weekend break in this stretch of fairytale forests, beautiful bogland, and captivating coastlines.
City breaks are great and all that. But, sometimes, it’s nice to go beyond the capital and sample something a little more authentic. Thankfully, Porvoo provides the perfect romantic retreat for weary city-slickers and it’s just a stone’s throw from Helsinki.
I don’t know about you, but when I hear the words “salt mines” I’m hardly filled with excitement. That’s why the first time I visited Krakow, I dismissed Wieliczka as a boring day trip for nerds and squares. However, I would soon live to regret my mistake.
