Travel highlights Estonia
Old City of Tallinn
Tallinn is one of the most beautiful cities in the Baltic. The old city is like stepping into a fairytale: Where ever you look you will find an enchanting combination of charming cobblestoned streets and beautiful medieval buildings. Bars, craft shops and street traders mark the streetview and give Tallinn its very special atmosphere.
Song Festival Ground
This is a very important place for Estonia. Once every five years Estonians come together and celebrate Estonia's independence with a song festival.
St. Catherine's Passage
St. Catherine's Passage is one of the most picturesque streets in Tallinn. It is famous for its craft workshops. Here you can watch artists creating new goods and get the chance to buy a souvenier which has been crafted in front of your own eyes. Where else can you do this?
Toompea Hill is considered as the birthplace of Tallinn. The limestone hill is home Toompea Castle, the seat of the Estonian government and the parliament and provides visitors with beautiful views over the city. Here you can also find the Russian Orthodox Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, a beautiful peace of architecture. Built in 1900, this Cathedral was a symbol of Sovjet power over Estonia.
