“A Tallinn of Two Cities”

published 11/07/2007

ProThe residue of earlier centuries

ConsThe residue of the Soviet era

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 past...

ConsCruise ship passengers, stag parties

I was a little 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...

“Well Preserved”

published 12/08/2007

Proold, attractive, no annoying street vendors

Consaching feet, we were done in a day

I'm currently staying in Helsinki, Finland with my boyfriend because of a summer job. As something to do, it was recommended to us that we 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...

ProMedieval old town

ConsIrish theme pub

A train of thought clattered through my head and came to a halt at anxiety station. It was seven o'clock on Sunday evening. I was on the dockside in a very foreign country. A very bleak, foreign country. All I could see was crumbling Soviet architecture looming in the approaching dusk. I had no...

“Cruise to Talinn”

published 25/03/2003

ProHistory, Cheap, Trouble-free

ConsNone that we can think of

The first bit is about getting there, and after that it's about Tallin itself, ok? 1st Bit ------- We board the Fantaasia ship, after some initial problems finding the terminal, signs would be helpful. Still we make it in time, and find the cabin, thanks to one of the staff who strangely speaks...

“Don’t Tall anyone else…”

published 05/08/2003

ProScandinavia on the cheap

ConsQuick - before its too late!

but the secret is pretty much well and truly out. The Estonian capital of Tallinn is in fact one of the most beautiful and best preserved medieval cities in Europe. Not only that its pretty cheap when you get there. All good news then? Well no – not quite. Truth is that you haven’t got much...

“Tallinn.”

published 16/02/2004

ProPrice. Cheap way to see Helsinki.

ConsStill Third World.

The city itself is a wonderful medieval north European one. It is steeped in history and the architecture is very pleasant on the eye. It is one of the oldest cities in Europe. There is a great deal of Russian influence still to be seen, but many Russian people and military were thrown out when...

“Try Tallinn!”

published 13/08/2000

ProAtmosphere, history, cheap shopping

ConsNot on the beaten track, cold

For a great day trip from Helsinki, visit Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, which is just a short hop across the Baltic from Helsinki. On a whim, my friend and I checked out the times of the ferries that leave the harbour in Helsinki on a regular basis and we just went for it! The ferries are...
