Why? The medieval city of Tallinn was first put
on the map in 1154, and today remains firmly marked as a favourite
holiday destination on the Gulf of Finland. The main reason people
choose to holiday in Tallinn is to roam its enchanting historic
centre, atop the hill of Toompea, filled with medieval buildings
and enticing cobbled alleyways. To complement the history, a
holiday in Tallinn also offers alluring boutique shopping similar
to that found in Swiss cities.
When? The best time to travel to Tallinn is during April and May when the spring weather is pleasant and welcoming. The summer months, while they are the warmest, are also the wettest and in winter it is freezing with only a few hours of dismal daylight and snow clogging the streets.
Who for? A holiday in Tallinn offers all the requirements for a great Baltic break, from historic sights to visit to a lively nightlife and great food. The city will therefore appeal to anyone who enjoys a relaxing getaway in an atmospheric setting.
