Planning a city break to Tallinn? We have visited Tallinn many, many times and on this page give you the ‘insiders’ guide to the best Tallinn accommodation and hotels, flight information plus things to do and see.

Tallinn city - great place for a breakAbout Tallinn: Tallinn is the capital of Estonia and is in Northern Europe. It is just 80 km across the sea to Helsinki in Finland and a regular ferry allows for an enjoyable day trip. Tallinn old town was built between the 13th and 16th centuries and is the top tourist attraction. It has twisting cobblestone paths, Gothic spires, magnificent cathedrals, medieval markets and an impressive fortified town wall. If you are staying in a city hotel in Tallinn, there are also plenty of great restaurants, bars and nightclubs close by for those who want to mix culture with a lively night life. This is definately a place for your holiday wish list.

Accommodation in the city of Tallinn
Hotel in Tallinn cityThere are a wide variety of city hotels available in Tallinn, from budget to high end luxury. One of the most important decisions when choosing where to stay it to check that you are based in Tallinn city centre (the old town) as this is where most of the attractions are. A lot of the big hotel chains are in Tallinn and offer rooms that are typically quite expensive and fairly small. If you want affordable luxury Tallinn accommodation you should definably have a look at serviced apartments. These are often within beautiful historic building in the old town and give you excellent value for money for fantastic accommodation.

Tallinn Flight info: The three main airlines with direct flights from the UK to Tallinn are, Easyjet, Ryan air and Estonian air. There are also many flight options with other airlines that have 1 stop somewhere, but this does tend to add quite a bit to the flight time and is not great for a short Tallinn city break. From Tallinn airport you can get the bus to the old town, or it is just a cheap 15 minute taxi ride. There are airport hotels, but with good Tallinn city hotels so close by you would only really need these if going straight on to another destination.

Tallinn city is ideally for an interesting breakThings to do and see on a Tallinn city breakTallinn is an exciting, dynamic city with a rich culture and plenty to do and see. One of the big reasons people go on city breaks to Tallinn, is to explore the UNESCO listed old town, with its beautiful historic buildings, spectacular cathedrals and even a medieval castle. In the summer you can also enjoy the long sandy beaches, with the best being Pirita beach, which is just a 15 minute drive from the old town. A highly recommended place to visi, that is a bit further afield is the Kadriorg Palace and Park. This is a resplendent 18th Century summer residence with wonderful landscaped gardens, built by Tsar Peter 1st for his empress. The Art Museum of Estonia has its foreign branch spread across several of the palaces spacious halls and has a great collection of paintings, sculptures and applied art from West Europe and Russia.
