Middle ages was the time, when it has started thriving and building up as an important harbor on the shores of the Baltic Sea. Nowadays every brick in this delightful city speaks about its’ ancienty.
City’s Old Town is surrounded by the bastion with 26 defence towers, so it still feels as walking in the fortress. Tallinn is a perfect mixture of Eastern European as well as Nordic country. Arrivals of any nationality find there an overwhelming cultural life, plenty of crowded pubs, bars and high quality restaurants, amazing shopping facilities and, of course, the outstanding beauty itself. Spend there a weekend at least and you will come back for more.
