A unique mix of Scandinavian and Eastern European cultures, Estonia’s charming capital is a delight to explore with plenty of modern cafes, galleries and creative spaces attracting the hip crowd.

The UNESCO World Heritage-listed Old Town is, of course, the highlight. Home to splendid baroque palaces and magnificent merchant dwellings, coiling cobblestone lanes and spiralling church towers, all you need is time and a good pair of shoes to scratch below the surface of this storied city. Interestingly, many of the historic structures that date back to medieval times have been preserved – even with the devastations of wars and fires of centuries past – making it one of the best-kept old towns in the whole of Europe.
