A beautiful, historic, city
Tallinn; what a lovely, friendly city, and as we had imagined, was very easy to access on foot. So we set about exploring the city, strolling all around the cobbled streets and lanes.
Although there was a bit of a climb up to Alexander Nevsky’s Cathedral and Toompea Hill, it was certainly worth it.
The impressive defensive walls, towers and gates that surround the medieval Old Town, has a wonderful imposing presence and makes this a very striking element of Tallinn.
The Raekoja plats, ‘Town Hall square’ to you and me, this is quite an impressive square, which considering its size is well hidden behind the architecture that encompasses it. This felt a very relaxed meeting place for locals and visitors alike.
Tallinn’s Old Town is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one greatest preserved and intact medieval cities in Europe and for this alone is worth the visit
Strolling along the cobblestoned streets, and around some corners it was like stepping back in time.
We stayed for one quick beer, then I made a swift move for the exit once someone else had turned up.
A slight disappointment
We really enjoyed Tallinn and has certainly given us a taster for other Baltic countries.
