The capital, on the shores of the Baltic Sea.  A wonderful old town, with walls and gates and towers to explore.  Plus, a German influence from immigration in the 12th and 13th centuries.

Favorite Places in Tallinn

Tallinn Old Town

One of the best old towns I have seen.  Enter in one of the old gates, like Viru Gate, and just explore the town and its treasures. 

Head into Town Hall Square and the 13th century town hall. 

Eat at Old Hansa and experience the German culture. 

Alexander Nevsky Cathedral

One of the many cathedrals in Eastern Europe named for this 13th century soldier and politician who was sainted in the 16th century and is considered one of the greatest Russian heroes.

Freedom Square

large square and symbol of independence surrounded by cafes and shops.
