DESTINATION: MULGIMAA HISTORIC REGION
Mulgimaa – a community with entrepreneurial spirit
Mulgimaa is a historic region in southern Estonia. Mulgi farmers were known to be wealthy and the first in Estonia to start buying their own farms from landlords in the late 19th century to cultivate flax. Their growth in wealth was demonstrated by the building of stately houses, as well as being able to send their children to study at the best and most expensive schools. Today Mulgimaa fascinates the senses with its unique nature and heritage from the past, as well as with exciting ventures and active people.
Three Mulgi cultural icons: the dialect, the well-known men’s long black jacket and the traditional Mulgi porridge have survived to this day.
