Saue-Saku. Suburbs, manors and a brewery.
The area around the towns of Saku and Saue (Saku is located 15 km along the Männiku Road and Saue is located 20 km along the Pärnu Road) forms a popular residential district just beyond Tallinn’s city limits. If you want to find out what life’s like for the average Estonian, it’s worth jumping in a car or hopping on a bike and exploring the area. One of its biggest points of interest, as the name suggests, is to be found in Saku: the oldest continuously operating brewery in the country, dating from 1820. The area is home to some lovely manors as well. Caravanners are also welcome in these parts: Saue boasts a caravan park offering all the mod cons that’s very popular among foreign tourists. Saue and Saku can be reached very easily by trains (www.elron.ee). Entertainment for families (only in the summer): Vembu-Tembumaa and Estrella Wakepark. Metsanurme area is nice for hiking.
