There are so many things to see that we organise two guided tours to make sure that everyone gets a chance to at least go through the main spots. We could quote here the colourful and historical Old Town city centre, the seaside and harbour, the viewpoint from the top of the hill, the orthodox cathedral with its splendid architecture,… Tallinn’s city centre is actually a UNESCO heritage so there are plenty of things to see and visit!
And for the hipsters among you, just head towards Telliskivi district, you will find everything you would dream of!
