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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Town Hall Pharmacy and Rotermann Quarter. Appreciate the collections at Tallinn Museum of Orders of Knighthood and Fat Margaret (Paks Margareeta). Change things up with a short trip to Rakvere Castle in Rakvere (about 1h 20 min away). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Toompea Hill, take a stroll through Tallinn Old Town, take in the spiritual surroundings of Aleksander Nevski Katedraali, and examine the collection at Lennusadam Seaplane Harbour.
