Alatskivi located right on the shore of Peipsi lake in Nina village. #visitestonia #eesti100 #estonia100 #alatskivi

alatskivi1 (2)Alatskivi located right on the shore of Peipsi lake in Nina village. Alatskivi Castle is a Neo-Gothic castle in Alatskivi, Estonia. Dating to the 17th century, it is situated in Alatskivi. Visit Alatskivi Castle during summertime to admire beautiful roses and enjoy Peipsi lake.

Peipsi area is home to Old Believers, a traditional religious minority recognised as hard-working and skillful fishermen, builders and keen onion cultivators. 

Estonia is the Paradise of Introverts 🙂 Estonians saying : A good neighbour is one where you can just barely see the smoke of their chimney from your window.’
In Estonia  you can feel, how is to be last soul in the Earth 🙂 You can drive through the Estonian countryside and not see another living soul for miles.

And be careful. This is the area of States Borders. Be careful and follow signs. Latvia is in EU and you welcome to visit Latvia, but for Russia you need visa.

Berry Cake by Siiri. Siiri mustikakook

A fresh, light, berry cake

Siiri mustikas1 (13)

I have been used in all my posts word “blueberry” in meaning ” wild blueberry”. Now I read Aho blog and found out that right expression is bilberry?

In Estonia we are saying: “Heal lapsel mitu nime” – a good child has many names.
As I live in Estonia, Estonia is one of the greenest countries in the world: about 50% of Estonian territory is covered with forest.
I forage my berries by myself from forest. And use in recipes wild blueberries/ bilberries.
Picking fresh blueberries, your mouth and hands are pink, fresh air and high roaring pines… this is amazing. This is a summer.,

This year is The Blueberry Year.
I believe, that this is the first time I would say thank you for global warming. May and June and July in Estonia were amazing. Very warm, lot of sun. Real summer.

Did you know ? Estonia has the 2nd cleanest food in Europe (EFSA)

Muhu Island #visitestonia #Eesti100 #estonia100 #muhu

Muhu Island #visitestonia #Eesti100 #estonia100 #muhu The sleepy fishermen's villages, windmills, thatched cottages and wildlife provide a perfect retreat for those looking to get lost in the nature. 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMuhu is an island in the Baltic Sea. With an area of 198 km2 (76 sq mi) it is the third largest island belonging to Estonia, after Saaremaa and Hiiumaa.
The sleepy fishermen’s villages, windmills, thatched cottages and wildlife provide a perfect retreat for those looking to get lost in the nature.

My family is from South Estonia, but 15 years ago my parents moved to Saaremaa. To get to Saaremaa, one must first get to Muhu island.

Muhu is beautiful and peaceful.

Muhu is interesting in wintertime, as well : you can drive on the ice

if it’s cold enough. During particularly cold winters (like the ones we used to have) you can drive between some of Estonia’s islands. The roads are marked with signs and speed limits.
