Kuressaare Maritime Festival 2011
This festival is set in a stunning location in what many visitors to Kuressaare believe is the marina with the world’s best view. The ships will lie in an inlet of the bay, and visitors can feast their eyes on them or even embark on a tour. Those up for it will have a chance to meet and drive bargains with Saaremaa ship builders.
A diverse music and entertainment programme, an island handicraft and fish market and vintage ceramics market will all take place. An international youth sailing regatta and other sporting pastimes on the surrounding waters will draw in spectators. Nautical conferences and exhibitions for experts and aficionados will also be held. And, naturally, fans of good food will enjoy gourmet seafood experiences in Kuressaare’s small, atmospheric restaurants.
