The Estonian capital is at once historic, modern, romantic, intellectual, grandiose and elegantly understated.
Tallinn is Estonia’s capital city and is situated on the Baltic Sea. It is loaded with culture and history, but it still a cool city to visit and to explore this part of the world. It is generally regarded as a hidden gem there in the north-east corner of continental Europe, but more people are recognizing it these days. We offer tours and other services for our clients visiting any destinations, and we assume all day-to-day planning and time-consuming organizing needed for clients to enjoy their stay to the fullest.
Visiting the ‘old town’ on foot brings you face-to-face with history at eye-level in possibly the best-preserved medieval cities in Europe. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site which can make it seem a bit touristy, but it is charming and intriguing.
It is not well-known, but you can go surfing in Tallinn. The nearby beach of Vääna-Jõesuu provides waves that are usually small, but ride-able, and when Pikker and Uku – the Estonian gods of thunder – decide to throw some weather at Tallinn it is possible to hire surfboards and head on out with a local surf coach and ride a few Baltic waves.
So many options, from fine dining to Game of Thrones-style comfort food of pork, rye bread, and beer, with vegetables and vodka thrown in when the situation calls for it. There are fine dining options, but it is the steady Estonian seasonal food that usually wins through. One firm favourite of all visitors is Mulgipuder is a rustic Estonian porridge consisting of mashed barley and potatoes. It often incorporates bacon and sautéed onions.
Visit St Olaf’s Church. Named after the saint King Olaf II from Norway, the church has been around since 1267 or thereabouts and is a wonder to behold. The Estonian Maritime Museum, located in the Seaplane Harbor, is also worth a visit, and contains the remains of the oldest ship ever found in Estonia, and simulators and play areas so that the whole family can enjoy.
Tallinn is full up with awesome 5-star hotels for luxury stays but has a long list of delightful apartments to rent options as well as many other alternatives. For the woke traveler there are so many possibilities, but the guideline state that if you want history and tradition then look for options in the Old Town, while the creative vibe can be found around Kalamaja. For maximum peace and quiet then head for Pirita.
Apart from walking, Tallinn has a very effective network of public transport, including bus trolleys and trams and the system, runs from early morning (6 am) to late at night (11 pm). It is safe and effective for transport and the transport costs are fair.Share this tour
