Welcome to Lahemaa National Park

Lahemaa National Park

Roughly 31 miles (50km) east of Tallinn, Lahemaa National Park is a popular day trip for tourists looking to explore the Estonian countryside. The park contains varied terrain and ecosystems that include forests, swamps, bogs and even beaches. A number of marked trails make hiking a good activity, and visitors can take a rest at Sagadi Manor, a 500-year-old building that is now an education centre with a forest museum, hotel and restaurant.

Information & Facts

Locals speak Estonian, which is part of the Finno-Ugric family of languages. English is widely used and understood among the younger generation and those involved in the tourist industry.

The Estonian currency is now the Euro, as the Kroon (EEK) was discontinued from 2011. Foreign currency can be easily exchanged at hotels, banks and exchange bureaux in the larger towns, at the airport and main railway station. Major credit cards are generally accepted in the larger hotels, main restaurants and shops, but it is wise to check first. Preferred travellers cheques in Estonia are Amex, Thomas Cook and Eurocheque. Banking hours are weekdays 9am to 4pm. Exchange bureaux are open till 6pm on weekdays and from 9am to 3pm on Saturdays. Some open on Sundays. ATMs are available in most towns.
