Why Tallinn?

Tallinn offers the visitor an eclectic experience comprising the old and the new.

Welcome to old Tallinn

  • Tour a UNESCO-listed Heritage Site
  • admire one of Europe’s most complete walled cities
  • explore the Bastion Passages and its hundreds of tunnels buried beneath the city
  • walk original 13th century cobblestone streets dotted with medieval churches

Welcome to new Tallinn

  • explore the waterfront, a dynamic area offering a modern port, beachfront properties, and promenade
  • see why the New York Times has characterized Estonia as "a sort of Silicon Valley on the Baltic Sea"
  • relax at Telliskivi Creative City, a warren of shops, restaurants, bars, offices, and event spaces
  • experience a truly smart city built on accessibility, interoperability, and user-friendliness

Regardless of old or new, Tallinn is also safe, clean and environmentally friendly.
