getaway to Haapsalu

Venice of the Baltics

Haapsalu is a seaside resort town located on the west coast of Estonia. It’s so small that you almost will drive past it if you’re not careful enough. Narrow streets line with 20th century wooden houses, outdoor cafes at the city center, and lots of friendly faces. It was a quiet place for us to escape to just before leaving Estonia and right after the mayhem that was Tallinn’s night life {more on that later}.

We visited cafes and sauntered the winding pretty Notting Hill-like streets. Grabbed a coffee in the afternoon and slept like there was no chance of it tomorrow. It’s the perfect place if you’re looking for a quiet retreat with a book in hand and we did just that. At that point, I had switched off for a bit because my month of travel ahead was just beginning. So no reflections, but just a photo series of what is considered the “Venice of the Baltics.”
