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. Its World Heritage Site Old Town is arguably the city's most popular and intriguing attraction, boasting cobbled streets, curious alleyways, and a variety of well-preserved 15th- and 17th-century constructions. As well as offering heaps of historical and cultural destinations, this northerly metropolis has a reputation for partying, making it a long-standing destination for European holiday makers searching for a good time on a budget. The sleazier elements of the city's nightlife have been toned down and today most visitors spend their evenings in bustling restaurants, lively bars, and cozy cafes. Take a peek at our custom trip planner: Tallinn and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
