Dreaming of times of honourable knights and fair ladies? Venture into Tallinn’s fascinating Old Town and up the medieval Town Hall, from where you have a magnificent view of this historical beauty of a city. The scenery is almost theatrical. Yet, this town is in constant transformation, displaying cutting edge architecture, a rocking art scene and a nifty nightlife. Below the surface Tallinn has a complex history – reflected in the diverse composition of the townsmen: Almost as many people speak Russian as Estonian, and the differences between generations and ethnic groups make this city more than just a pretty acquaintance.
Tallinn’s Old Town is demarcated by ancient city walls. It has been listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
Tallinn has a temper and a soul. For a fix of Soviet nostalgia, head up the TV Tower, from where you will enjoy a superb view over the beautiful city and its lush green suburbs.
