Top 500 places to visit before you die (P.67) Tallinn: The heart of Estonia


( Tallinn is not only an important economic, political, and cultural center of Estonia. It is also a vivid reflection of a magnificent medieval Europe.

Tallinn's old town is surrounded by a solid wall, inside there is a square, neat high-rise building with a medieval style.


Despite the changes in nature, politics, and economic fluctuations, Tallinn still retains the typical Hanseatic architecture from the Middle Ages. The ancient beauty of the city has almost not faded over the years with its cobblestone streets and ancient houses built in the 13th century. In 1997, Tallinn's old town was recognized by UNESCO as a world heritage site and was the European Capital of Culture in 2011.


The winding, cobbled streets around ancient castles and churches give the feeling of traveling back in time. The streets of the old town weren't straight and seemed to curve in every way, but they all went in the same direction, all huddled in the Town Hall square, the old marketplace. Each street has its own unique character. The road through the old town takes visitors past famous places such as the Danish King's Garden, Kohtuotsa lookout or Town Hall square, and St. Catherine's church.


The country of Estonia is located in an area with a mild climate, all year round is a good time to visit and roam. However, summer is the best time to visit this medieval city. Besides the ancient buildings, visitors will have the opportunity to roam the romantic beaches, visit the green national parks and enjoy the fresh air here.


The cuisine here features black bread and salmon roe, which are two dishes on the list of famous Tallinn specialties that you should try when coming here.

If you have the opportunity to once come to Estonia, a beautiful and hospitable Nordic country, you will surely be treated to the best memories.
