One of most fantastic places of the world. Churches, old streets, museums... You may walk one week there and it will be still interesting.
If you haven't visited Tallinn? You should! Beautiful old town, the castle and the square of the old town and the selection of restaurants is absolutely a must and will give you a very good relaxing feeling especially at mid summer.
But this town us even beautiful during winter time. Yes the square in old town is full of sales stands with local hand craft and a cosy atmosphere during the weeks before Christmas. Just do it :-) !!! I have been there many time as a business man but also with my family and will come back many many times again.
If you are looking for inexpensive drinks and snacks, try Kompressor (3 Rataskaevu) for Estonian Pancakes.
But you had better be hungry. If there are 2 of you, have one savory and one sweet and share. If you are looking for fancier Estonian fare, try Vanaema Juures (just down the street at 10 and 12 Rataskaevu). Both are around the corner from the St Olav Hotel
Tallin is a mysterious and amazing city. It holds so much history. Old meets the new. You will find so many wifi-spots from the oldest and smallest corner to the highest cafés.
many attractions can be reached by foot and I warmly recommed that you stroll around and just follow your nose...explore by foot is the best. AND buy the Tallin card, wich make you go round for free at many sites, scenes and travels, 24/48/72hrs.
Take a day trip out of Tallinn into the countryside. We took the tour to Lahemaa National Park with Tallinn Travellers (booth opposite the tourist office).
It was great - Soviet submarine base, Captain's village, Manor house, hike and foot bath in the bogs - but the best part was to talk to young Estonians and find out what they really think about their country, their future and their big neighbour! Splendid.
Tallinn is a wonderful and amazing place to visit. It is definitively worth going and discovering its charm and beauty,
Fascinating old city with lots of quirky streets and buildings. Well worth taking a 2 hour walking tour from around 10 Euro.
. Eclectic mix of ancient and modern, and contrasts between occupation of Nazis and Soviets, to modern times. Not too many western chains (except McDonalds and the ubiquitious "Irish" bars). Lots of souvenir shops if you like this tat, and one or two half decent restaurants. Good connections to Finland ferry (2.5 hours)
Its a vibrant city with a most amazing old town in europe, and its so perfectly located beside the sea , there is modern town and old town its is so beautiful.
Best time to come is Dec-FEB in winter or summer June July Augusit.we have midsummer day june what is worth to visit.
old town is still spectacular and the standard of restaurants and shops has increased. the kalamaja area with its wooden houses is close to old town and worth of a stroll in there and lennusadam is good to visit for all ages.
A very lovely place to visit. With more time we would have like to exploe beyond the immediate tourist areas.
Nice people, safe, the price of food and goods are a bit higher than Lativa. There are so many supermarket round and normally closed at 23:00.
The old town is nice but a bit more tourist than my expectation.
