Know More About Culture and Music of Estonia:

Without music, Estonia as we know it probably wouldn't exist. The Estonian national identity was born to hand in hand with the recognition of the region's folk music in the 19th century when local songs were recorded and the first Song Celebrations were organized. Today, the musical landscape in Estonia is more colorful than ever.

Estonia has a wild festival scene, with events covering the whole spectrum of music genres. Big or small, urban or rustic, pop, rock, classical or alternative music – there's a festival for every preference. And if you can't really choose, come and check out Tallinn Music Week, the only festival in the world that hosts a dedicated program for every music genre from outsider/underground to chart-pop, including an extensive lineup of classical composers and interpreters.

Music can be found all year round and everywhere in Estonia, whether at concerts, in the opera, nightclubs, bars, or just in the streets. Vivid, colorful, and not 100% discovered yet, the Estonian music scene in and outside of Tallinn is waiting to be seen and heard.

Treat yourself to a chocolatey experience

Chocolate has been produced in Estonia since the 18th century. In the old days, before sugar was easy to come by, Estonians turned to honey for a sweet pick-me-up after a long day of work. Tallinn's Old Town Pharmacy started selling marzipan as a medicine in the middle ages, claiming to be the original inventor of the sweet.

Estonian marzipan traveled far, becoming a favorite of the Russian emperor's court in St. Petersburg in the 19th century. Visitors can get a taste of the original marzipan recipe at the Maiasmokk Cafe in Old Town Tallinn, the longest continually operating cafe in Estonia.

Founded in 1806, Kalev is the king of Estonian chocolate. It is the country's largest confections producer and a household name. You can visit one of their shops in Tallinn, Tartu, Kuressaare, and Pärnu to see their full line of sweets.

At the Tallinn showroom, you can even enroll in chocolate and marzipan-making workshop. Another smaller Estonian chocolate crafter, Chocolala has earned international acclaim as one of the world's top chocolate shops for using unexpected regional ingredients like buckthorn, birch juice, spruce tip, and cup lichen. Come visit Chocolala in Tallinn and take a workshop to see what all the fuss is about!
