Relish the views from Toompea:

The Old Town of Tallinn can be divided into 2 different parts, Lower Town (All-linn) and Upper Town (Toompea).

If you are in search of a stunning panoramic view, there is no superior area than the picturesque overlooks on Toompea Hill. This tenth-century stranglehold still provides mesmerising views over the city offers a new outlook to the amalgamation of historic charm & modern culture that flourishes within Tallinn.

There’re many viewpoints in Toompea, each with a little different view, and it is worth it to seek them out to see Old Town from all its beautiful angles.

Find St. Catherine’s Passage:

A tiny passageway tucked away behind colossal buildings, St. Catherine’s Passage accommodates the conventional artisans of the city. Once home to a convent & the centre of learning, the paved boulevards have denied modernising.  

Like most of Tallinn, the architecture of this passage has predominantly been untouched since the discovery of the city. Still, the passage somehow feels traditional. Clothing stores, handicrafts, and more can be discovered in small stores marking the passage, an idea stop for memento shopping.

Try an Estonian craft beer:

In the endeavor to sustain its hipster credential, Estonia possesses a lively craft beer scene. There’re innumerable places to relish a great beer in the city, and most eateries will have a reasonable selection of craft beer on offer. So, don’t miss this opportunity alongside exploring the top attractions of this medieval yet modern city.
