Escorted Rail Tours to Tallinn
The intriguing capital of Estonia
Estonia's beautiful capital city is filled with pretty churches and charming cobbled streets. Its central, Old Town district (Toompea) is surrounded by historic and wonderfully preserved defensive walls. Toompea is the oldest part of Tallinn and is the often referred to as the most attractive part of the city. Throughout its history, this part of Tallinn has been home to the top echelons of society, including aristocrats, top politicians and the city's wealthiest residents.
However, many tourists and locals will point to Lower Tallinn when asked to name their favourite part of the city. This part of the city, known as An-Linn, is arguably as beautiful as Toompea - the cobbled streets, limestone buildings and terracotta-tiled roofs have a real charm, and this area certainly has a more vibrant, welcoming street life.
