Nestled in the Baltic region of Northern Europe, Estonia is geographically similar to its neighbours but culturally, it’s unique. With the pirates and plagues of its past a distant memory, the country has flourished as a must visit for history enthusiasts and culture vultures alike.
Sitting on the north coast on the shore of the Gulf of Finland, Tallinn is Estonia’s capital and largest city. In contrast to the city’s recent digital innovations – it’s the birthplace of Skype – Tallinn is a blast from the past with its medieval architecture and UNESCO –protected Old Town. Wander through the cobbled streets and take in the sights of this charming city. Make sure you browse some of Tallinn’s shops, famous for fine amber and silver jewellery.
