Narva & The Eastern Bloc
A day in Tallinn cannot be compared to a day in Narva. To be honest, nothing can be compared to the Eastern side of Estonia.
A day hunting hammers and sickles is time well spent. The tour takes you from beautiful medieval castles and coastal cliffs to ash-hills, half empty industrial ghost towns and the most bizarre Soviet themed museum in Estonia.
It doesn’t matter if Soviet history is something you’re familiar with. It’s fun either way: nostalgic block houses with indistinguishable looks or a 101 of the absurdist tragicomedy known as "Reminiscences of the Soviet Union". The Eastern side of Estonia is for adventurers.
And yes, there will be a tank and a statue of Lenin!
All our day trips are in small groups (up to 8 people) taken around in a minivan or a car.
