What to see in Tallinn

Tallinn Attractions


A city steeped in history and a rich cultural heritage, Tallinn is a sightseer's paradise and a great place to explore on foot or by bus. Dubbed 'mini Prague', the beautiful cobble-stoned streets of the Old Town are the perfect place to start your discovery of the city.

Featuring old buildings and churches, such as Alexander Nevsky Cathedra and St Olav's, the tallest church in Medieval Europe, travellers will love the enchanting feel of the town. Stroll through the Estonian Open Air Museum, take the kids to the Tallinn Zoo for the day, or pack a picnic and enjoy a day out at the Botanical Gardens.

Visitors in Tallinn keen on doing a lot of sightseeing should look into purchasing a Tallinn Card, which enables the bearer to free public transport, a free two-hour city sightseeing tour, and free admission to all of Tallinn's museums. The card is available for 6 hours, 1, 2 and 3-day options starting at EEK 185 for adults and EEK 95 for children. The card can be bought from the airport, harbour, tourist information offices and most hotels.
