You will find fireworks, cards, presents, parties, and a huge shopping rush in Tallinn, other seacoast towns, and all over the country are a big part of the celebrations. And private parties and dinners also figure large.

But it’s probably the tradition of going to public events like cultural performances at The Estonia Concert Hall, acrobatic acts, theatres for stage plays, and at other venues that marks Estonian New Year’s most distinctively.
