Discover the Wonders of Pokumaa!

If you are in Estonia and want to try something new one weekend, why not venture into the enchanting world of Pokumaa! Located in south eastern Estonia, Pokumaa is based on the creation of Estonian writer/illustrator Edgar Valter. First published in 1994, 'Pokuraamat' is the story of the Pokus, childlike grass mound creatures with long golden hair reaching down to their feet and who live in the bogs of south eastern Estonia. They are beloved children's characters who are respectful of the land and live in harmony with it.

Opened in 2008,  Pokumaa brings the works of Edgar Valter to life. Here you can see some of his original oil paintings and illustrations as well as a life size Poku village.

During his 55 year career Edgar Valter has over 250 books to his name and Pokuraamat is undoubtedly his most famous work.
