Public Holidays

Public holidays in Estonia

In the Christian world, most holidays are oriented towards Easter or Christmas. But also in other countries far away from home there is enough reason to celebrate.

Not all holidays are statuted by law - and those that are, do not necessarily mean a day off in all regions of Estonia. Rather, it is often up to the respective parts of the country whether the holiday is also a day off.
