Trip to Pärnu, Viljandi and the wild nature in between

At the weekend I had the oppurtunity to participate in a trip to South Estonia organized by the International Club of the University, which was very cool. On the first day we made some stops in the nature. We stopped at a waterfall and then went to Pärnu which is the summercapital of Estonia, whith one of hte biggest and widest sandbeaches in Estonia and some mudbathes and a long tradition of being a Baltic Bath. The next day we visited the naturepark with sandunes and swamps wich was very cool, because it was big and empty and silent and the weather was so good. Afterwards we went to see a tiny, haunted cave and the smallest town of Estonia. There we observed a huge ruin and more of idyllic autumn landscape. We took quartier a the beaver farm. The stay there was the highlight of the trip. Everything there was just beautiful, cosy and romantic and the food was sooo good! We were the onlyones there and so we decided to heat the smoke sauna and splash into the ice cold deep black pond afterwards. AWESOME! The next day we visited Viljandi, which is the place were one of the biggest folk music festivals is held and you can also find a beautiful museum for naive art or art bruit there. Its namend after Paul Kondas a popular estonian naive art painter who lived in Viljandi. Some of his works are also exhibited there.
All in all it was a great weekend!
