Enjoy exploring the cobbled streets and getting lost!
Bonus: try one of these local treats.
I asked my local Estonian friend what would be typical and unique to try from Estonia.
She sort of went blank and couldn’t think of anything.
Then out of nowhere I got a text message telling me to try one of these treats.
It’s typically only found in Estonia. You can grab one for yourself by going to the dairy section of any Estonian supermarket and they will set you back around €0.20 each.
It’s like eating a mini cheesecake. I liked the honey version, for sure worth a try for something local and unique to Estonia.
