We have to admit, Estonia isn’t usually at the top of most travelers’ vacation itineraries. With the glaciated mountains of Sweden and the vast wilderness of Finland nearby, it’s no wonder so many people think Estonia fails in comparison.

A simple search on the web will pull up even more reasons why you should plan a visit, but knowing what not to do is just as important. Here are 13 things to keep in mind when traveling to this Northern Europe country.
