Western Counties Take the Stage in Tallinn's Old Town ({{commentsTotal}})


Those who are Tallinn-bound over the weekend but are longing for an infusion of juniper and smoked flounder can visit a western Estonian fair on Town Hall Square, the city's press department Raepress said.

Part of a four-part series on Estonia's regions, this one samples Hiiumaa, Saaremaa, Lääne County and Pärnu County. Music ensembles and dance troupes will take the stage on each day.

There is also an online quiz in basic Estonian at www.avalava.ee (deadline at 15:00 Friday) with prizes, such as a sea cruise and visit to Roosta adventure park, to be drawn at 14:00 on Saturday.
