Peipsiland is a unique cultural, historical and social community that naturally connects many different regions on the shore of Lake Peipsi. Various regional languages are still spoken in the coastal areas of lake Peipsi.

The project Heritage Hunters is based on achievements of previous ER164 “PeipsiRing” project.
