Estonian Institute’s free schooling program “Culture Step“ offers visits, trips, lectures and discussions for non-natives in Tallinn and Harju county.


The program is aimed at people whose native tongue is not Estonian and who are interested in Estonian culture, nature, history and everyday life. When registering, the participants aim to collect between 24-27 academic hours of activities that introduce them to Estonia from different aspects – nature, history, day-to-day life and much more. Each participant can freely select the events they wish to attend based on their interests and possibilities. The events are held in English and Russian as group activities.

Registration for the “Culture step”2020 summer program is open from the 18th until the 25th of June on www.kultuurisamm.ee/en. The events start in the first week of July and last until mid-August. Further information regarding the program will be sent to everyone who has registered.

The program is open for everyone who isn’t a native Estonian speaker and is at least 16 years old.

Estonian Institute started the “Culture step” program in autumn 2018. In the first year 252 participants completed the program. In august 2019 a new group was opened for people living in Ida-Viru County. Since then more than thousand people have joined the program.

Estonian Institute’s “Culture step” program is funded by the Integration Foundation.
