The Baltic nation of Estonia is home to some of Europe’s best-preserved medieval architecture, with spectacular city walls, beautiful palaces and impressive castles. One of the best places to go to soak in this architecture is the capital city of Tallinn, which is home to a fascinating Old City which dates back to the 15-17th centuries. Upon entry, you would be forgiven for thinking you had entered a fairy-tale kingdom, with many impressive colourful spires dominating the skyline.
Some of the best buildings to visit include the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, the Tallinn Raekoda (Town Hall) and the Tallinn Kadriorg Palace. All of these and many more historical landmarks can be admired from above via one of the many viewpoints offered on Toompea Hill.
An ocean cruise offers a fantastic opportunity to explore the Estonian capital as well as neighbouring Russia and the Scandinavian nations of Finland, Sweden and Norway. Wherever you would like to go, TravelQuest can offer a range of possibilities to help you create your perfect holiday.
