In the north of the country, on the Baltic coast, is the capital of Tallinn. It is one of Europe’s least explored cities, combining a perfectly preserved medieval inner city with a modern downtown area. It was voted European Capital of Culture in 2011 and is also one of the top 10 digital cities in the world. The medieval quarter is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is known for its museums, restaurants, bars, and cafes. During Christmas, the city is famous for its festive Christmas market, serving hot cocktails to warm you up. The nightlife here is lively and inexpensive.
The public transport system is one of Europe’s best, being totally free for all residents! You can also reach other European countries easily. For example, Latvia is only a few hours away by bus, and Helsinki (Finland’s capital) is only two hours away by boat.
