I enjoy nature and saw that estonia have very majestic forests and countryside and would love to come closer to see,

Hello there,

Sorry for being late, but if you can now, then just nearby (evensay in Tallinn) there's nice green place called Suur-Paljassaare poolsaar (peninsula). Situated in north Tallinn. You can hike there (track is around 6 km) and just enjoy the great view over Tallinn. There's a bench (5-6 m high) at the top of the peninsula.

By the way, this peninsula was once an island :-)

Enjoy! :-)

Please see the following webpage https://www.loodusegakoos.ee/kuhuminna/voimaluste-otsing you might find something from there (nature).
For soviet times - maybe to visit Naissaar or Loksa area, but it might be hard to get there. For visiting Loksa you need to hire a car. There should be boats to Naissaar - also day trips, see more https://www.infosys.ee/kajsamoor/booking/ship_booking.php?o=kajsamoor&type=3&LC=1&cal=98

You can even download the new app for the forest hikes, even better than the web-page as shows on the map as well: https://www.rmk.ee/organisation/rmk-mobile-app
Hi, there is a nice walking area in Pirita. People usually do some running or walking there and the spot has a feel like in the country :) Also nice to visit rose garden by the Presidents castle and Japanese garden near by.
To get to go outside of town to see nature is doable. For example catch a train from the Balti Jaam and go to Aegviidu, there are really awesome roads to walk around in nature. Trains go in almost every 30 min. and the drive is abouet 45-50 min. Elron train tickets you could get from this site or by Balti Jaama train station https://elron.pilet.ee/et/results/Tallinn/Aegviidu/2019-08-22
Have a nice time!
