City Break in Tallinn
Tallinn is the capital of Estonia. Tallinn sits on the southern shore of the Gulf of Finland, just 83 km south of Helsinki. A ferry trip between the cities takes 2 hours or less.
Tallinn is a good place for sightseeings, cultural events, dining, shoping or nightlife.
During Estonia`s White nights in June the sky here stays bright from 4am until around 11pm.
Thanx to its small size and compact layout, Tallinn is extremely easy to get around.
Lennart Meri International Airport is only 5 km from the city center.
Tallinn is European Capital of Culture in 2011.

WHERE TO GO
Surrounding the palace is the vast Kadriorg Park, the best place in town for pigeon feeding and life pondering.
With its 3km stretch of sand beach and a yachting harbor, Pirita is best known as a center for summer frolicking. A quieter way to enjoy teh area is to head across the road to teh Pirita River delta, where row boats, canoes and also water bicycles can be rented. Pirita is also worth visiting for its own bit of Medieval architecture - the ruins of St. Bridget´s Convent.
Wooden House Districts
Kalamaja, Kopli and Pelgulinn are quiet neighborhoods best known for the colourful hodge of old-fashioned, proletarian houses that line their streets, a scene that has sadly disappeared from most other European cities.
Bus tours with hop- on hop-off city tours
Red double-decker buses make a circuit around teh city´s main attractions, allowing you to hop off where you want, see the sights, and hop back on a later bus. Buses run on three different routes, and audio commentary is available in 10 languages.
