With both the train station and a tram stop just outside, this hotel is perfectly placed to explore the gems of historic Tallinn.Take the number one tram to sightsee outside the centre to Kadriog Palace which Peter I begun constructing in 1798 in honor of Catherine I. This grandiose palace and surrounding manicured gardens are an example of Tsarist extravagance but now the former palace houses the foreign art collection of the Art Museum of Estonia.In few places in Europe does the aura of the 14th and 15th centuries survive intact the way it does in Tallinn's old town where visitors will find a jumble of medieval walls and turrets, needling spires and winding, cobbled streets. Popular local bars include Hell Hunt, Karja Kelder and the Beer House. Visitors should try the Olde Hansa which serves medieval food and features canopied toilets. Another not to be missed is Cafe Kehrwieder with its warren of cavelike rooms.
