Tallinn Old Town is encircled by its original city walls, punctuated by two dozen towers of various shapes and sizes which offer great views over the red-tiled rooftops below. Dominating the skyline is the spire of St. Olav's church. This was once the tallest building in the world, and was used by the KGB as a radio mast during the Soviet occupation of Estonia.
The focal point of the atmospheric Old Town is Town Hall Square, where a Christmas market is held in the winter months beneath the magnificent Gothic town hall. From here, streets full of boutiques and cosy cafés radiate.
Just a two hour drive and short ferry ride away is the heavenly hangout of Padaste Manor on Muhu Island. Here you can relax in peaceful seclusion, enjoying a range of innovative spa treatments and equally innovative cuisine, including elk carpaccio. In summer, activities include horse riding, boating, and water-skiing.
