Money

Estonia started using the euro as its official currency in 2011, so some shops might still display prices in both euros and kroons. Major credit cards are usually accepted in the larger stores, hotels and restaurants, and you can find an ATM in most towns.

Communications

Estonia’s international country code is 372. To call another country, dial 00 followed by the appropriate country code. You can find Internet cafes in Tallinn, Estonia’s capital city, or use the public Internet accessible in the Central Library, National Library and Central Post Office.

Tipping

Tipping 5 to 10 percent at a restaurant is a growing trend, but tipping overall isn’t a common practice. Make sure that your bill doesn’t already include a service charge. Tip taxi drivers spare change.

Safety

Tourists usually face few serious problems in Estonia, but there has been a rise in tourist-related crime. Beware of muggings and pickpockets in the areas surrounding the Old Town, ferry ports and major hotels. Use common sense with your belongings and stay away from parks and unlit streets after dark.

Health

There are no vaccinations required to enter Estonia. Adults are advised to be vaccinated for tetanus and diphtheria if they haven’t received one in the last 10 years. Most medical facilities expect immediate cash payment for services, and you’ll want to have health insurance.

Electricity

Estonia’s electric current is 220 volts AC, 50 Hz and uses two-pinned, European-style plugs.
