One of the most mature holiday destinations is undoubtedly the beautiful Tallinn, the capital of Estonia. The outdoor Christmas market was declared the best for 2019!
Defying the cold – average temperature -2 degrees Celsius – and dressed in warm clothes and accessories, you can see the medieval city center adorned and probably snowy.
Raekoja plats – Town Hall Square
Walk through the ornate alleys of the medieval city with its towers, churches and walls and head to the town hall square. The largest tree in the city is decorated there, the open-air Christmas market and a skating rink are open.
The Christmas market is open daily from 11/15 to 7/1, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Hot drinks are sold until 11 pm. The small stalls sell sweets, candies and handicrafts.
Try hot wine sausages in various types, even without alcohol. At Gingerbread you will find the famous cookies, on which you can if you ask to write your name or whatever else you want!
From the square starts the train that walks in the paved alleys of the city.
Reapteek-The historic pharmacy
It is located in the town hall square and is the oldest and in fact pharmacy in Europe.
It is the highest point of the old town and offers stunning views over and above the roofs and towers with the skyscrapers in the background. In the background is the TV tower.
Visit the point where the walls join the three towers, Nunna, Sauna and Kuldjala. There visitors can climb and explore the towers and the wall as well as see the city from above. The walls are 1.9 km long and 20 towers survive to this day.
St. Alexander Nevsky cathedral
Built in 1900, the Russian Orthodox Church is still one of the most beautiful buildings on Toompea Hill.
A huge arena that hosts concerts of domestic and foreign artists. In winter, the place turns into a huge skating rink!
