Located on the coast of the Baltic Sea, the seaside capital of Estonia Tallinn is a true treasure chest for first-time and returning visitors alike. Tallinn is not a big city. With only 450,000 inhabitants, Tallinn manages to be just big enough to offer constant diversity and change, but comfortably small enough to make it easy to get from one place to another.
With our historically strategic and exciting location, Tallinn has amassed a diverse cultural heritage, which is evident when considering the varied areas that build up contemporary Tallinn. The medieval hanseatic old town of Tallinn gives the city a fairy-tale like ambience which is definitely worth to stroll aorund even in dark and cold times in November. The Old Town is surrounded by distinctive and colourful districts such as Kalamaja (https://www.visitestonia.com/en/telliskivi-creative-city), Noblessner and Rotermanni, which have been built in the centuries that followed and are ideal for experiencing Tallinn’s local everyday life.
In a world where technological advances are happening in an increasingly growing speed, Tallinn is proud to be in the front run of the race. The city has implemented numerous innovative smart solutions; for example, we have a regular bus route “manned” by a driverless bus. You can also meet some adorable package delivery robots on the streets of Tallinn.
