There’s no other way to describe it. Tallinn is a Medieval masterpiece.
The lower town of Tallinn is one of the best-preserved Medieval towns on the continent. It is continually being rehabilitated and improved to maintain the feeling of walking back into history. Make sure to linger in the Town Hall square, enjoy Fat Margaret and the other components of the city wall, and tour the numerous Medieval churches in the area.
The upper town of Tallinn used to be almost completely separated from the lower town. It has been the home of the governing power of Estonia since it was created thanks to its easily defensible location. Toompea Castle, the Russian Orthodox Cathedral, and the Dome Church are all worthy of a visit.
If you want to embrace the local Estonian culture, consider making your way outside the city to enjoy a day at a fantastic open air museum. There is a life-sized reconstruction of an 18th century village, including an inn, a fire station, and a schoolhouse with its 80 unique buildings. It’s about 8 kilometers west of the city center of Tallinn.
You’ll also find numerous music venues available in Tallinn, with concerts and live performances frequently available. The nightlife is thriving in the city. And, if you prefer a day trip, ferries can connect you to various other cities so you can explore some more.
Tallinn is a city of magic and wonder. There are few like it. Once it draws you in, Tallinn will never let you go. It is one of those places that everyone should see at least once in their lives.
