Do you want to visit Tallinn in Estonia?
Great choice! Who wouldn’t want to visit Tallinn? It’s a gorgeous country!
As for me, Estonia had lingered on my “travel wishlist” radar for FAR too long! I’m not sure what intrigued me, exactly. I mean, have you ever seen pictures of a place and just wanted to visit without knowing much about it at all? Totally me and Tallinn. Anyway, when I had the opportunity to visit Tallinn in summer of 2016, I couldn’t even contain my excitement.
Upon arriving, I instantly fell in love with the medieval magic sweeping throughout Tallinn’s streets, buildings, and art. I didn’t even mind that the prices were a bit higher than in Riga or Vilnius. Honestly, the city’s entire atmosphere was straight out of a fantasy RPG, which more than satisfied me. Yes, I’m a nerd, haha.
Furthermore, I couldn’t believe all the wonderful things to do in Tallinn. It’s a small city, but packs a big punch!
While many visitors take a day trip to Tallinn, usually from Helsinki via ferry, the Estonian capital has lots of great accommodation, and I personally enjoyed spending a few days staying in the city itself. Trust me, early morning is the best time for you to explore without fighting day trippers and cruisers for a great photo. You benefit.
Now grab a cup of tea and gaze at these (cough, amazing, cough) photos of Estonia. And don’t forget to tell me all about your own trip!
Note: Most of these photos are taken in Tallinn’s Old Town. However, the city is sooooo much more than that! There are a lot of tips to follow to have a good trip in Estonia and in Tallinn itself! For example, I have a “shopper’s crush” on Telliskivi Creative City.
