Very interesting to see Estonian town that is not Tallinn, Tartu or Pärnu. Aitäh. Streets seem rather dead, though, but that's how almost all small locations in S&B region are. Kinda funny, but Otepää could be just any small town in Sweden or Finland by the looks of it. (Trying comparing their livelyness with their Central and West European counterparts..)

Cute little town! Thanks, erki89! Is the town booming or why are they building several new hotels? Is it a big Estonian tourist destination?

@DenverDane
yes, many tourist come here (esp. finns) and many sport events take place here and there are sometimes problems with the acommodation of the athletes and fans. This years Skiing WC leg was followed by about 10 000 people. Thats almost 5x the population of Otepää :)

Nice. Otepää seems like a cozy and developed town. I don`t remember when I visited Otepää or have I ever visited that town. That`s really cool to see Otepää pics in this forum. :eek:kay:

Nothing against Otepää, Otepää rules! :)

And they really demolished the good old "kaubamaja"??
And they will build a hotel there?
Anyway, I will see in summer!
