Young At Heart

Cobbled streets full of cafes, galleries, lovely old warehouses and merchants' houses, some dating from the 11th century, make up medieval Tallinn old town. The street pattern has been preserved down the centuries, unlike so many European cities which have been destroyed by development, but it's far from a museum piece.

The best way to see the old town is on foot. By wandering around, you can allow yourself to stumble on the unexpected, like the many charming small churches. Visit the town square, still a bustling hub, and the site of the first ever Christmas tree in 1441.

If you get tired, you could hire a bike-powered taxi or ride the tour train.
