Tallinn (Estonia)

Community Quote

Fortunately, I knew in advance that Tallinn wasn’t going to be the way it looked as we came in to land, or I might have been depressed. The plane’s flightpath brought us in from the east, flying over the dreary sprawl of apartment blocks that disfigures so many cities scarred by a Soviet ... Read review

A Tallinn of Two Cities Diamond review Review with images

AdvantagesThe residue of earlier centuries

DisadvantagesThe residue of the Soviet era

"...I knew in advance that Tallinn wasn’t going to be the way it looked as we came in to land, or I might have been depressed. The plane’s flightpath brought us in from the east, flying over the dreary sprawl of apartment blocks that disfigures so many cities scarred by a Soviet past. And quite a few without a Soviet past, of course. I knew that amid the sprawl I would find an attractive historic centre – a World Heritage Site, no less – with other ..." Read review

A tour of Tallinn, Estonia Review with images

AdvantagesClean, easy to get around, pretty views of the coast, PAAT restaurant, fairly good tour, Old Town!

DisadvantagesThe open air museum wasn't really a 'museum' and there wasn't that much to do/see, in my opinion

"...close proximity of the sea, Tallinn was a trading port particularly during the 14th-16th centuries. The medieval section of Tallinn (the old town) is still well preserved from this busy trading time. Before and after the founding of Tallinn Estonia was invaded and occupied by numerous countries such as Germany, Denmark and Russia among others. Estonia became independent from Russia thorough the war of independence during the early 20th century. But ..." Read review

A new song for Europe Review with images

AdvantagesPicturesque, fascinating, variety of things to see, Depeche Mode bar

DisadvantagesCruise ship passengers, stag parties

"...disappointed not have got to Tallinn before the stag parties but its proximity to Finland where I was holidaying last September coupled with the touristic worth of Estonia's capital city meant I would have been foolish to let a few drunken Brits put me off. As it turned out, the irritations came from another group altogether.... Some geography.... Tallinn is situated on the Baltic Sea a couple of hours across the water from Helsinki. The Russian ..."

Well Preserved

Advantagesold, attractive, no annoying street vendors

Disadvantagesaching feet, we were done in a day

"...take a day trip to Tallinn in Estonia. This we did yesterday and had a great day out. There were a huge number of museums and galleries that we didn't look at, a huge number of shops we didn't go in and a vast number of traditional Estonian restaurants that we didn't have the space in our stomach to try. This is just a brief description of our trip; there is plenty more in the city that we didn't see. ~~~ Getting There ~~~ There are plenty ..." Read review

The Scruffy Shoe Diaries BOOKING AHEAD ADVISABLE Review with images

AdvantagesMedieval old town

DisadvantagesIrish theme pub

"...of the cloistered protection of Tallinn old town and out into the metropolis proper. Here we observed what might be described as "contrast". The old town just opens out onto a congested main street that you'd find in any city pretty much anywhere, with department stores and hotels and office blocks and the like. Beyond that, a few blocks over was more interesting. This is where the residential areas began, and the spectre of Soviet planning was plain. ..." Read review
