Tallinn

Recommended Posts

Off to Tallinn for a few days in two weeks time. Mainly going for the Christmas markets.

Anyone been before? If so anything worth seeing or doing whilst there?

The town square area is pretty enough with lots of bars and restaurants , its kinda in the old town so also has the bastion ,  couple of nice churches and look scenic look out points ..the invention factory might be interesting if that's your thing  .. Kadriorg  park is nice for a walk about and also where a lot of the museums are based ( again , if that's your thing)

No real "wow "factor though , other than the women :) ( but I doubt they will be wearing the skimpy outfits they were wearing in July when I was there  )

 

if you are feeling adventurous then take the Ferry to Helsinki for the day   , there is a big(ish) market along the front as you come out the ferry terminal and you can eat Reindeer in some of the restaurants if you want some novelty value ... there is a Tractor restaurant that is quite famous within walking distance  ( called Zetor i think)  where you can have mousse of smoked reindeer , reindeer soup  , reindeer steak  ..other meats are available though so fear not
