Tallinn Holidays Overview


The capital city of Tallinn lies on the southern coast of the Golf of Finland at a distance of 70kms from Helsinki. The city is particularly famous for its historical city centre that is known to be full of medieval era houses and cobblestone streets. Remnants of the age old city wall can be seen even today and they are known to be a major attraction among tourists. The city centre also finds itself in the list of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites and is also known to consist of numerous commercial delights such as fashionable shopping streets and unique restaurants.

Tallinn might not be known for its museums, but it is definitely known to be one of the best places for those looking for 14th century churches, a beautiful mix of restaurants and cafes and an exciting nightlife. The city is also home to a number of historic wonders and an ever growing art gallery scene. What makes Tallinn so special is that it is quite hard to match the culture of Tallinn anywhere else in the world. Candlelit anterooms, beautiful patisseries and gorgeous patios offer inviting settings for those looking to spend their time people watching and age old dining rooms, mesmerizing wine cellars and steamy nightclubs ensure that there is never a shortage of things to do while in the city.

The city is not just about its atmospheric old town. Tourists can also check out its historical past at sights such as the Kadriorg Palace and St Olavís Spire (once known to be the tallest in the world) or exotic beaches such as Vana Joesuu and Pirita. The Rocca-al Mare Open Air Museum also offers an excellent insight into the cityís past.

Tallinn holidays - Top Places To Go

 
1. The Old Town
Tourist Information Centre, Niguliste 2/Kullassepa 4, in the centre of the Old Town
www.tourism.tallinn.ee/fpage/travelplanning/touristinformation
What is it? The winding, cobbled streets of Tallinn's historic centre are the focus for most visitors to the city and the hub of the major tourist attractions, which can all be enjoyed on a walking tour. The walled old town is divided into two parts: Toompea Hill was the residential area of the aristocracy and gentry in days of yore, while the Lower Town operated independently. The Old Town, much of it dating from the 11th century, is extremely well preserved and complete, its powerful defensive stone buildings having ensured that it was not destroyed despite frequent invasions over the centuries. Visitors revel in Town Hall Square, ringed by the beautiful Town Hall and its adjacent pharmacy, which is still operating on the site it has occupied since 1422. The Old Town is also full of churches, like St Olav's, which was the tallest church in Medieval Europe, dating from the early 13th century. The old town walls and its many fortresses made up one of the strongest defence systems in northern Europe by the 16th century. The dominating landmark on Toompea is the magnificent Alexander Nevsky Russian Orthodox Cathedral. The medieval atmosphere is particularly evident in St Catherine's passage, between Vene and Muurivahe Streets, where visitors can stroll past the open studios of artists and craftsmen who have laboured here for centuries.
