Tallinn's Upper Town

Recommended
The nucleus of Tallinn and seat of Estonian government, the upper town of Toompea dominates from its hilltop location. Aristocratic residences line its little medieval streets, giving it a genteel calm which contrasts with the bustle of the lower town. Up here the views are naturally splendid, especially from the viewpoints of Patkuli and Kohtuotsa.

Estonia: Jouluturg Christmas Market in Tallinn

Christmas is best celebrated up North, with snow on the ground! Wrapping up warm and taking a stroll through the frosty streets of Tallinn’s Old City heralds the holiday spirit far better than lazing about in a hammock in the Bahamas!
