Spare time

Spending your spare time with hobbies, cultural events or sports should not be a problem in Estonia.

The Estonians themselves quite actively visit cultural as well as sporting events. Concerts, the theatre and exhibitions are popular. There are several databases on upcoming events. Tickets to concerts and cultural events are often cheaper if you buy them beforehand than right before the concert or event.  Concerts of the Estonian National Male Choir, Estonian National Symphony Orchestra or Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir are definitely worth watching out for. The most important organisation that curates classical music concerts is the State Concert Institute, Eesti Kontsert.

The variety of museums ranges from a mining museum, a glass museum and railway museums to the Estonian Flag Museum. The Estonian National Museum was founded in 1909 in Tartu. The permanent exhibition of the Estonian National Museum introduces the everyday life of Estonian peasants, Estonian holidays and changes in Estonian culture. The most recent addition to Estonian museums is KUMU Art Museum, which was opened on February 18, 2006. offers contact information and links to the websites of Estonian museums.
