This historic, harbour city has long been a popular stop for Northern European sea fearers, now hosting around 300 cruise ships each year. The reason is no mystery. Tallinn has a lot going for it – its Medieval, UNESCO listed Old Town, free WI-Fi equipped, cosy cafés, high-quality, elegant restaurants and plenty of shopping opportunities.
The city is thrilling enough to explore for days, yet also small and compact to give you the full Tallinn experience in a few hours and why not just on foot on the cobblestone streets! It takes just 15 minutes to walk from the harbour to the Old Town and another 15 min to reach the Town Hall Square at the centre of the Medieval hub.
If culture, sights and museums are your particular passion consider getting a wallet friendly help in the form of a Tallinn Card. Tallinn Card is all in one city card offering free entry to most of Tallinn’s museums and sights along with excursions and public transport. The city card’s benefits start right from the port and take you to most must see sights and museums for free.
With majority of the cruises calling during the summer season the passengers are treated with full on cultural events that flood the city’s streets as soon as the weather warms up. Winter cruises are equally lucky to experience the magical white season with charming Christmas Market on the Town Hall Square and wintry events.
