Having visited Tallin for a city break a few years ago, I just wanted to give you an insight of what to expect and experience:
If your doing an organised excursion or your own thing then head to the old town. There’s a reason it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Bit of History:
Estonia’s Capital was part of the Soviet Union for nearly 50 years. That ended in 1991 when the Soviet Union collapsed. Estonia is now the smallest Baltic independent nation.
Skype was developed in Estonia
The old medieval town has been restored. Although there are plenty of modern day shops, funky bars and cafes it still retains its 1400’s era charm! Cobblestone streets and medieval architecture have remained unchanged for over 600 years.
Walk through the cobble streets, you come across hidden cafes that lead into enchanting courtyards.
I brought a day pass to the bus tour, which as most cities stops at interesting sights. I found this gets you a little further out of the city, getting to see everyday life which is a throw back in time to Soviet era life.
Visit Kadriorg Park & baroque palace
