Estonia, or the Republic of Estonia, is a Baltic state bordered by the Gulf of Finland, the Baltic Sea, Latvia, Lake Peipus and Russia. The country is divided into fifteen counties, with its capital city being Tallinn. Estonia offers many historical sites, particularly from the Soviet era. There are also great beaches though the summer is short.

Travelling overland to Estonia tends not to be the shortest of journeys, but some routes go through some of Europe’s most interesting cities and landscapes.
