Information for Travelers
Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, sits on the Baltic Sea and is the country's cultural hub.
With surprises around every corner, Tallinn bursts with charm like no other European city.
The most famous are the cobbled old town, surrounded by a city wall, with numerous cafes and shops.
The city is exceptionally photogenic, especially during midnight sunsets in summer.
And if you want to see the city at its best, plan your visit during the Estonian Song Festival.
It brings together 30,000 of Estonia's best singers on one stage every five years to create music that vibrates throughout the city.
You can still stroll through the ivy-covered Viru Gate, explore the Gothic Town Hall, and walk along the city walls like others have done for hundreds of years.
But you should also spend time exploring Tallinn's modern offerings.
The city boasts Scandinavian-inspired restaurants, observation decks, lush parks, and candy shops.
The city is steeped in history but has all the modern offerings that tourists expect from a 21st century destination.
The Nikolaikirche, a 13th-century landmark, showcases church art.
Tallinn's Old Town has managed to preserve its medieval heritage through centuries of domination by foreign rulers.
This special place has rightfully earned the UNESCO World Heritage designation.
