Tallinn holidays

On the north-eastern edge of the Baltic Sea, Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, is one of the best preserved medieval towns in Europe, and as such the Old Town area is included in Unesco’s World Heritage List. The aura of the 14th and 15th centuries survives intact in Tallinn’s Old Town, through its jumble of medieval walls and turrets, needling spires and winding, cobbled streets. The city can be easily explored on foot, which is the best way to see the historic old town and absorb the atmosphere and bright activity of its bustling squares. Tallinn was first referred to in the chronicles of Arabian geographer AL-Idrisi in 1154, and was formerly founded by the Danes at the beginning of the 13th century. The German’s have had the most lasting influence on the city as Tallinn was once one of the leading cities of the Hanseatic League. It has also been ruled by the Swedes and the Russians.
