Day 2
Tallinn | Tallinn

This morning meet your guide in the hotel lobby for a walking tour. The Upper Old City or Toompea Hill, is the oldest part of Tallinn, inhabited since pre-history.  Note the defensive wall and towers ringing the old city, which are the town’s most striking feature.  Unlike Vilnius and Riga whose walls were destroyed, eighty percent of the original wall around Tallinn in the 1500’s is still intact today.  In addition to having Tallinn’s oldest buildings, the upper old town has good viewing platforms to view the entire old town.  Toompea Castle is one of Estonia’s most treasured landmarks, built by Danes and Germans after they defeated the Estonians in the early 1200’s.  The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral is an Orthodox church built in 1900 in the Moscow style of the 17th century.  This church is topped with 11 bells, including the largest (15 tons) in all of Estonia.

Also on Toompea Hill, you may make a brief stop at the Cathedral of St. Mary, also called the Dome Cathedral. Originally built by the Danes in the 13th century, it is the oldest church in Tallinn and the only building in Toompea which survived a 17th century fire. Most of the furniture inside dates to the period of the 17th - 18th centuries. The altar, chandeliers, and the numerous coats-of arms are from the 17th – 20th centuries.

At the foot of the hill, you will see the St. Nicholas Church, which was originally built in the 13th century by German merchants and dedicated to the patron saint of sailors and merchants. It was partially destroyed when the Soviet air force bombed the city in World War II. After extensive restorations it is now used as an art museum and concert hall.

This afternoon is at leisure to enjoy Tallinn and we recommend relaxing over a leisurely lunch on or around Old Town Square and then exploring the lower part of the town.

Day 3
Tallinn | Tallinn

Today is at leisure to enjoy this wonderful city. We recommend visiting the KUMU art museum – Estonia’s largest. Opened in 2006 in an enormous, cutting-edge facility built into a limestone cliff in Kadriorg, the KUMU exhibits works from Estonian artists dating from the 18th  Century through the end of World War II, as well as a permanent exhibition of Estonian contemporary art dating from 1945-1991.

Or you may wish to explore the seaside town of Rocca al Mare (Cliff by the sea), where you will have the opportunity to visit the Estonian Open Air Museum. The Open Air Museum presents a unique collection of old Estonian buildings from different regions of the country, exhibited on a large expanse of seaside land.

If you would like us to arrange for additional sightseeing please advise your travel consultant and we will be happy to plan this for you.
