Discover The beauty of Tallinn

The beauty of Tallinn

Tallinn


You’ll discover a bewitching fusion of fairy tale charm, riveting history and Nordic cool with a long weekend–sized break in Tallinn. Founded back in the 11th century, take some time here and you’ll find this compact, beguiling and beautifully preserved city is bursting with treasures all wrapped up within thick medieval city walls. Delve into the Old Town and take pleasure in the simple delights of just ambling for a while. Along its narrow meandering streets you’ll uncover pink and primrose painted townhouses, white conical towers casting shadows over cobblestone squares, and half-hidden courtyards with shabby-chic cafes offering a warm welcome and an array of tantalising sweet treats. Continue your journey strolling along the handsome thoroughfares circling the top of Toompea Hill; this once upmarket preserve of the rich and powerful boasts grandiose government buildings, richly ornate incense-infused churches, and also a number of viewing points offering spectacular panoramas over this red-roofed city as it cascades down to the Baltic Sea. For history of a more modern vintage head beyond the sturdy ramparts to the Seaplane Harbour Museum on the Baltic waterfront. The sheer scale and curved concrete grandeur of this former seaplane hangar is breathtaking, and the ships and planes on show inside are just as captivating. Ask your Tallinn hotel concierge as well to secure you tickets for the cloak-and-dagger confines of the KGB museum: you’ll have a bizarre, fun-filled experience pouring over spying equipment and learning the murky ways the Soviet’s kept tabs on the Estonian populace until 1994. After dark, tantalise your taste buds with the local cuisine: from hearty banquets of game sausage, salmon and smoked sauerkraut to delicately crafted Nordic cuisine served in the stellar array of restaurants and fine hotels in Tallinn. Then, enjoy a romantic tryst over a honey beer in a candle-lit cellar, or even a DJ fuelled all-nighter at a cool club, and drink a toast to charming, cool and classy Tallinn — Terviseks!
