Must see

 

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.

CURRENCY

The official currency is the Euro, but I had no problem paying by credit card.

Local TRANSPORTATION

I walked the majority of the time. I took Uber as well because it was raining, but there are also extensive public transportation options.

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!
