Hanseatic city Viljandi

The heart of the Viljandi tourist area beats in an ancient rhythm. The rhythm is slightly mysterious and contains the past, the present and the future, creation and preservation. It represents centuries of life in this area, strong cultural history and old traditions. In Viljandi every footprint of land talks of its history, culture and traditions.

Viljandi is like a real Estonia and worth for more attention in Europe.
Due to its favourable location, beautiful scenery and good connections, Viljandi has always been a wonderful place to live, work and rest in. 

Green parks, old wooden houses, monuments and small art galleries allow for pleasant walks in the town. Its good location, varied nature and good connecting roads convinced merchants as far back as the 14th century that this was an excellent place also for trade and stopovers.
In 1991 the tradition of Hanseatic Days was revived here in this old Hanseatic town. During the Hanseatic Days is the town crowded with guests, there are concerts and a handicraft fair and people walk in the streets wearing historical costumes.

Cultural and creative destination Viljandi is ready to pass its welcoming hand to people from all over Europe. 

Viljandi has the honour to invite all Hanseatic Cities and guests from near and far to the 35th Hanseatic Days in 2015, which will be held in the Estonian town of Viljandi in June 4-7, 2015.
