Lutepää
Lutepää
is a small community on the Värska-to- Saatse
Saatse
gravel road in southeast Estonia. At first sight, it is just like a thousand other villages in the lake and forest landscape of this region, where the Russian-Estonian border twists and turns in a manner that defies the logic of everyday life. But Lutepää
Lutepää
and the neighbouring villages of Saatse
Saatse
and Ulitina
Ulitina
are utterly unusual for Lutepää
Lutepää
is one of the few villages in the European Union
European Union
that can only be reached by travelling through Russia. The one and only road through Lutepää
Lutepää
cuts, on either side of the village, through Russia's Saatse
Saatse
Boot area, making Lutepää
Lutepää
a practical enclave. No Russian visa is required to drive the road to Lutepää, but those in transit by car though the territory of the Russian Federation
Russian Federation
are not permitted to stop en route. Lutepää, small hamlet as it is, is scarcely featured in many maps and guides, but a note about this diminutive community can be found at the website Hidden Europe
