The capital of Estoina, Tallinn is one of the best-preserved medieval cities in Europe and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It boarders Russia, Latvia and the Baltic Sea – the language is Estonian and the currency is the Euro. I visited this beautiful town and to be honest, wasn’t sure what to expect. I hadn’t heard much about Tallinn and hadn’t known anyone who had visited. I will admit that my expectations were low, but wow was I wrong!
Tallinn was one of the most quaint, beautiful and interesting cities I have seen. The city itself id divided into to sections the upper town (Toompea Hill) and the lower old town. It is a very easy city to visit on your own or you can take a walking tour which includes some of the more prominent churches (Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, Toomkirk “The Dome Church”) the Town Hall Square, and the Kadriorg Palace. There are a multitude of cute cafes, beautiful buildings and many local artisan shops. I highly recommend a lazy stroll around the town if you ever find yourself in Tallinn.
Some interesting facts I learned about Estonia include:
So if you ever find yourself in the Baltic region, definitely plan to make a visit to Estonia and spend a beautiful afternoon in Tallinn.
See the world, make it better.
