Outside of the center, concrete Soviet construction is considerably less charming, although the Kadriorg park and palace and beach resort at ... Read more
Pirita both have their charm. Today Tallinn, part of the former Soviet Union, continues to have a large Russian population and language contingent. Summer is the most popular time to visit, although the city makes a great weekend getaway year round.

Tallinn combines centuries of history with high tech modernity. You can enjoy the best of both worlds while sampling food at a steadily increasing number of fine food restaurants.

A must see if you are visiting Helsinki as it's a quick ferry ride away. This city is one of the most beautiful in Europe (inside the old city walls). While there do need to be some kinks worked out in terms of addressing the large influx of tourist, I would imagine in the years to come, this city will explode with greatness.

Located on the Gulf of Finland this the capital and largest city of Estonia is a fun place to explore for a day. The old town is one of the best preserved in "walled cities" in all of Europe. Winding alleyways, attractive square with lively entertainment, lots of color. Many restaurants and cafes abound. If you are in Helsinki it is just a short boat ride away - I highly recommend doing this.

I went to Estonia last summer and I loved it, from swimming in the lakes to taking a walk in the beautiful forestry, there is so much to do and see the list is endless. Tallinn is picture postcard, littered with fabulous little coffee shops and bars. Bottom line I will definitely be back Estonia!

Tallinn is a beautiful city with a mix of old and new structures/architecture. The old city is absolutely charming and filled with little nooks and crannies that make Europe so intriguing.

Last week, I visited Tallinn. I visited there Prangli Island, Tallinn old town, Kumu art museum and town hall square. It was really a wonderful trip. Tallin is an amazing city to visit and also very cheap. I was there for a week, so I rent a car from a local rental company http://www.tallinnairportcarrentals.com. Their sevices was great throughout the whole trip and they also offered me 5% discount. It was a great experience to travel by car around the city. This city has something for everyone. If someone is planning a trip to Tallinn, then I would suggest them to hire a car, It would be great experience for you really.
