Life on the edge of two worlds
As of summer 2013, when travelling through South-Estonia, you can have a look at some sights worth discovering through the yellow windows of the National Geographic magazine.
Bright yellow squares placed in the landscape narrate a story about a special place near Russia and Latvia, on the border of the European Union, where urbanisation and the industrial world has not yet reached.
The yellow windows draw the attention of both local and foreign tourists to the rich cultural heritage of South-Estonia, to its magnificent landscape and its innovative businesses.
3 National Geographic yellow windows have been placed in Põlva county. They are located in Valgesoo, Estonian Road Museum and near Süvahavva wool mill.
