Estonia - 5 day visit in August

My husband and I are planning to visit Estonia in August.

Please could you suggest how many days should we stay at Tallinn.

And is it worth going on a day trip to Parnu or Haapsalu or Tartu or any other place?

How much time do you think it takes to visit Lahemaa National Park, is it a day visit or just couple of hours?

You can cover the main attractions in Tallinn in 2 - 3 days.

"And is it worth going on a day trip to Parnu or Haapsalu or Tartu or any other place?" - Yes.

A day trip to Helsinki is easy to do from Tallinn. Details on ferries here: https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g18989…

The White Lady Festival is held in Haapsalu in August. That's worth a look. www.valgedaam.ee/pages/eng/legend.php?lang=EN If that doesn't suit your timing, it's still worth a visit for its charming village feel and ruined castle.

Tartu is more urban but still a small town. If anything it's more Estonian in character than Tallinn, as it was never heavily colonised during the occupation.

About Lahemaa, the surrounding area has some nice stuff worth seeing. It makes a full day's outing by car.

Thank you John.

We don't have a car. Do you think it is worth hiring a car for Lahemaa or should we opt for the day tour to Lahemaa National Park from Old town?

Depends on how independent you want to be and if you want to do your own research. A day tour package is the easy option.
