With an 800-year-old past, Tallinn is a patchwork of historic areas. The city's pride and joy is its Medieval Old Town, but equally enchanting is the Kadriorg district, a throwback to the time when Estonia was ruled by the Russian Tsars. Other areas of Tallinn are perfect for those who want to get a glimpse of Soviet-era life, or just want to spend time in the great outdoors.
Tallinn is full of museums, ranging from the standard, high-quality history and art variety to unique museums specialising in old-fashioned dolls, antique cameras, musical instruments and even sea mines. For true museum buffs, consider buying a Tallinn Card, which will give each guest free entrance to most of the city's museums. Note that many museums in Estonia are closed on Mondays and/or Tuesdays.
A variety of guided and self-guided tours are available in Tallinn. These tours include everything from ghost walks to pub crawls. Many of these tours require advance booking.
Tallinn is a city that stays connected with its history, with many neighbourhoods providing excellent snapshots into the various periods of its past. To see where the city is heading in the 21st century, take a stroll through the Rotermann Quarter, discover Tallinn's new public gathering spot, Freedom Square, or visit the nation's premier art museum.
Catholic, Lutheran, Russian Orthodox, and more recently Jewish, houses of worship have played a central role in Tallinn's cultural life since German crusaders Christianised the country in the early 13th century. The Medieval-built churches were known to be magnificent projects that drew the city's best artistic talent. Today, many of the city's churches are true architectural treasures, with interiors that should not be missed.
Guests do not have to go far to find wide-open spaces in Tallinn. The city is filled with well-maintained parks and other relaxing patches of greenery. There are also seaside promenades and multiple beaches, all of which offer ample opportunities for strolling, quiet contemplation or just a relaxing afternoon.
Visitors who come here within a few weeks of the summer solstice (21 Jun) have the added bonus of experiencing the White Nights, when the sun sets just before midnight and rises again around 04:00.
A number of fantastic day trips are available for guests that would like to learn more about nature and history in Estonia. From the islands off the coast of Tallinn to vast national park areas to curious nearby towns, there is plenty of fascinating options.
