Tallinn Holidays

Overlooking the Gulf of Finland, Tallinn, Estonia's capital, is the best-preserved medieval town in northern Europe. The cobbled streets of its unspoilt centre are still lined with former merchants' homes, guild halls and warehouses.

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.
