Tallinn is neither too big nor too small. It is just the right size and has a lot to offer. Culture, contrasts, and amazing architecture from different eras.

In addition to the wonderful Old Town, Tallinn enchants guests with its diverse and vibrant neighbourhoods, clean and varied urban nature, diverse cultural life, and food experiences inspired by local traditions and Nordic flavours.
