Port of Tallinn

About Tallinn: Tallinn has made huge strides in transforming itself into a high-tech, cosmopolitan over the past decade, but as much as Estonians are proud of the forward-looking nature of their capital, there’s no question that the city’s most valuable treasure is its connection to the past. Tallinn is the best-preserved medieval city in Northern Europe, with its Old Town listed on UNESCO World Heritage list since 1997. The web of winding cobblestone streets and properties, dating mainly from the 11th to 15th centuries, has been preserved nearly in its entirely thanks to a strong defensive wall.

You are welcome to wake the legends and follow the steps of great kings and czars strolling around the Old Town. Or beep into the Danish King’s Garden, the spot where, according to old legend, the Danes first received their national flag. Oleviste Church used to be the highest building in Europe during the Middle-Ages. Tallinn boasts a town wall with 26 defense towers, the 600-year-old Gothic Town Hall, the world`s oldest functioning pharmacy and the Dominican St. Catharine`s Monastery founded in 1246. Next to the ancient pearls of the Old Town you find all the modern treasures with reflecting glass office, residential and public buildings. There are also the high-tech solutions that go hand-in-hand with Tallinn life, like free, wireless Internet available practically everywhere. This is, after all, the country that invented Skype. Most shops in the Old Town and department stores throughout the city are open seven days a week, and major credit cards are widely accepted. The city is also home to wide array of dining venues, everything from cozy cafes to exclusive gourmet restaurants.

Foreign tourists spent approximately 800 million Euros on all the different goods and services in Tallinn in 2012. Cruise travelers spent roughly 26.4 million Euros whilst visiting the city.

Sights to see: Many architectural and historical pearls from medieval era are situated in Tallinn`s old town . In the St. Nicholas church you can find the collection of Medieval art with altars from the 15th and 16th centuries, most notably a fragment of Bernt Notke`s 15th century masterpiece, Dance Macabre. The Dome Church (Cathedral of St. Mary the Virgin) is the oldest church in Tallinn, first mentioned in the 13th century. In the interior the gravestones and a unique collection of coats of arms of German nobility. Tallinn Town Hall is the only surviving Gothic town hall in Northern Europe. The Town Hall has witnessed the trade and social activities for over 700 years. On the top of the Town Hall the ancient weathervane Vana Toomas (Old Toomas) is the main character of several legends. St. Catharine`s Passage is a spectacular place where you can find different master workshops surrounded by a medieval atmosphere. There are open workshops, where visitors can see glass blowers, leather smiths and patchwork seamstresses close-up. Peter the Great`s summer palace in Kadriorg Park (Catharine`s Palace) is a fine example of Baroque architecture built by the Italian architect Niccolo Michetti in 1723. In 2000 the renovated palace was opened as the foreign art collection of the Art Museum. One of the most popular places in the park is the Swan Lake and its surroundings.
