Quietly Wonderful Saaremaa awaits

A Magical Island

Natural diversity and historical prosperity are key factors of Saaremaa – the largest island of Estonia. Saaremaa has retained its uniqueness throughout the times: There are still stone fences and houses with thatched roofs in the villages, beautiful national costumes and dialectal language in use. Junipers, dolomite, windmills, beautiful lighthouses and the famous local home-brewed beer are considered the symbols of Saaremaa. This hidden gem of the Baltic Sea also features the 2nd oldest nature protection area in Europe – Vilsandi National Park and the historical, highly original resort town Kuressaare.
