Above all, South-Estonia is renowned for its beautiful nature – deep forests, winding country roads, shimmering blue lakes, and fields on rolling hills. Here you can enjoy untouched primeval nature in national parks and conservation areas, while also taking in the special architectural beauty of local manors, castles, churches and sleepy small towns and villages.
Culture in South-Estonia is doubtlessly special! The Russian Old Believers, the Seto and Võru people and, of course, the indigenous Estonians offer various exciting events and possibilities to get to know their way of life. Many long-standing traditional folklore festivals are held here every year. In addition, South-Estonia offers various sports events, which pose a serious challenge on our special terrain.
You may notice that the Estonian language spoken in Southern Estonia differs somewhat from the one spoken in Tallinn. The special dialect of the Setos is hard to understand even for local Tartu people.
Southern Estonia with its clean nature provides work and income for many farmers and South-Estonian food is held in high regard. Every participant in the LINC conference will be able to enjoy Estonian food both at the opening and final dinner. You can read more about Estonian food here.

South-Estonia covers six counties in the southernmost part of Estonia: Jõgeva County, Tartu County, Viljandi County, Põlva County, Võru County and Valga County. Information about the sights to see in the region is available at www.southestonia.ee
