The reason why Tallinn is so popular is no mystery – its UNESCO-listed, medieval Old Town, free public Wi-Fi, cosy cafés, elegant gourmet restaurants and plenty of shopping opportunities continue to draw visitors.
The city is thrilling enough to explore for days, yet also small and compact enough to give you the full Tallinn experience in a few hours. It takes just 15 minutes to walk from the cruise pier to the Old Town, and another 15 minutes to reach the Town Hall Square at the centre of the medieval hub.
Taking an organised tour provided by your cruise ship is often the simplest option, however, in case you want to explore the city on your own, we have compiled a list of suggestions for you to choose from.
A top tip: if you plan to visit museums, use public transport, or the hop-on-hop-off tour bus, consider purchasing a Tallinn Card, a sightseeing pass that includes free entry to Tallinn’s top museums, free use of public transport, and a 50% discount on the hop-on-hop-off tour bus (free with Tallinn Card PLUS).
