Tallinn

A historic city with its eye firmly on the future, Tallinn blends medieval fortifications, gleaming skyscrapers, and charming boutiques with a spattering of Soviet relics.
Step out of the city life by going to Traveller Tours and Eesti Vabaõhumuuseum / Estonian Open Air Museum. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Church of the Holy Spirit Puhavaimu Kirik and Toompea Hill. The adventure continues: examine the collection at Fat Margaret (Paks Margareeta), don't miss a visit to Long Street (Pikk tanav), enjoy breathtaking views from Viewing Point Kohtuotsa, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Olaf’s Church.

Small in size but big in character, the proud nation of Estonia manages to pack historical cities, swathes of charming countryside, a picturesque coastline, and rugged islands into a relatively small amount of space. Thanks to its compactness, visitors can easily travel between the many tourist attractions the country has to offer. Although just a stone's throw away from Finland, Latvia, and Russia, Estonia boasts its own distinct culture, evident in the country's cuisine, music, and traditions. This vibrant nation emerged from over 40 years of Soviet rule to be one of the most economically successful of the European Union's eastern members and is leading the way in tech industries.
