Follow this guide to make sure you don’t miss out on the full range of attractions that Tallinn has to offer. This incredible city might just become your new favorite.
This arched alleyway is made up of buildings dating back to the 15th Century, while St. Catherine’s church itself was built more than 700 years ago.
From the beautiful St. Catherine’s Passage, it is only a stone’s throw to the next attraction which is Meistrite Hoov. This little courtyard is perfect if you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the crowds.
If you start feeling a bit peckish during all the exploring, why not enjoy some pavlova and coffee at Maiasmokk café – the oldest café in Estonia!
Once you have had your fill of historical sights, why not get to know Tallinn’s more modern side in the Telliskivi Creative City? This hub of inspiration and creativity is located in a former industrial complex just outside of the city center.
The creative city is also home to the world-renowned Fotografiska Tallinn museum of fine-art photography. The cafe on the first floor is perfect for grabbing a coffee or a snack or even getting some work done.
The rooftop restaurant has a terrace bar with a great view over the old town and Telliskivi Creative City. If the weather is nice, it is a fantastic place to enjoy a drink with a view.
The Viru Bog in Lahemaa National Park is the perfect day trip to escape the bustling city and enjoy some tranquil scenery if you come early in the morning.
