The southern city of Otepää became Estonia's winter capital for the 27th time on Sunday.

Leader of Otepää municipality Jaanus Barkala accepted the rotating seasonal capital title at 4 p.m. on the city's main square.

A traditional market was held to mark the occasion, as well as singing and a visit from Santa.

The event also marked the 140th anniversary of the blue, black, and white Estonian flag.

Estonia has a capital for every season. Otepää is the winter capital, Türi holds the title of spring capital, beach town Pärnu is designated the summer capital, and Narca holds the autumn title.
