I think Estonia would have to be my favorite of the Baltic states but it's definitely close because I loved them all! It was absolutely beautiful and there was so much to see and do in Tallinn.
Kohtuotsa viewing platform / Alexander Nevsky Cathedral - these are both located in the elevated part of town. Kohtuotsa offers an amazing view out over the old town. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral is a great Orthodox Cathedral.
Town Hall Square / St. Olaf's Church - visit Town Hall Square for the picturesque buildings and St. Olaf's for the climb up the tower to have amazing views of the city. Both are located in Old Town.
Kumu / Kadriorg Park - Kumu was one of my favorite stops in Tallinn. This art museum is in a modern architecturally amazing building and the art collection was moderate in size but very enjoyable. Kadriorg Park is nearby and is beautiful to walk through.
The official currency is the Euro, but I had no problem paying by credit card.
I walked the majority of the time. I took Uber as well because it was raining, but there are also extensive public transportation options.
I flew Air Baltic from Riga (RIX) to Tallinn (TLL). I flew Air Baltic from Tallinn (TLL) to Vilnius (VNO).
Estonia has tons of food options. I had some great crepes and waffles while I was there!
PLUGS / ADAPTERS
Estonia uses European plug type F.
Estonia is a member of the Schengen Agreement. This means that U.S. citizens can visit Estonia for up to 90 days without a visa.
I felt very safe throughout my entire visit.
SHOULD YOU VISIT?
Yes! Estonia was my favorite Baltic country and there was so much to see and do in Tallinn! I loved just walking around the city and admiring how beautiful it was. The Baltic countries are much less frequented by tourists than Western Europe but are definitely worth visiting. I loved my time in Estonia and would definitely like to go back!
