Not far from Britain: this city attracts with its old European charm and nightlife

Connoisseurs of unusual tourist destinations should really appreciate one of the hidden gems of Europe. After all, this city is known as one of the most "absurdly photogenic" places in the world.

The capital of Estonia, Tallinn, has been named one of the most peaceful cities on Earth due to its lively yet calm atmosphere. In the MoneySuperMarket Travel Insurance rating, Icelandic Reykjavik came out on top, but budget Tallinn caught our attention as a lesser-known location, Metro writes.

Experts praise the combination of Tallinn's attractions, including ancient churches, medieval streetscapes, and houses of noble merchants. We can also add excellent food and a vibrant modern culture.

The researchers added that the Estonian capital intertwines medieval Old World charm with Estonia's modern technological society. Tallinn is a clean, quiet city that offers a vibrant cultural scene, efficient infrastructure, and a bustling nightlife.

From the UK, a direct flight from London to Tallinn takes about two hours and 45 minutes. During January and February, airfares start at £33. You can fly to Tallinn from Bristol, Manchester, Birmingham, or Edinburgh, but with a stopover.

Tallinn's Old Town is the number one UNESCO World Heritage Site. A number of interesting and important events take place in the Old Town, especially on the Town Hall Square. It is here that you will find the city's Christmas tree from mid-November, as well as an impressive Christmas market.

In addition, the oldest cafe in Tallinn, Maiasmokk, can also be found in the Old Town, which dates back to 1864. And for chocolate lovers, there is Pierre Chocolaterie in the hidden courtyard of the Masters.

Tourists are also attracted by the incredible views near the walls of the Old Town. Toompea Hill is also a must-see for those who love a good view, as there are several observation decks.

For those tourists who are looking for something a little more fun and modern, Telliskivi Creative City offers its services. This is a former factory building that now consists of shops, restaurants, and cultural institutions.

It should be emphasized that there are thousands of enthusiastic reviews of Tallinn visitors on the web. For example, a recent review posted by Bernie843 on Tripadvisor declared it to be "the best winter market vacation ever." "We give this 5/5 for a winter vacation. Everything you need is within walking distance - on a cobblestone road. There are so many cafes, restaurants, and attractions that every time you turn your head, you see another one," the article says.

"The Christmas market is one of the best we've been to. Better than the markets in Manchester/UK," writes one of the tourists.

"Best Old Town we've seen in Europe," writes another.

"One of the best old towns in Europe. A wonderful and well-preserved Old Town, one of our favorite places in Europe. The history is rich, the buildings (towers, fortresses, walls, churches) are impressive and interesting, it's amazing, but at the same time noisy and lively," shares her impression one of the travelers.

"You need to visit this city before it becomes too popular. It is one of the best preserved medieval cities in Europe. Welcome to the magical city of Tallinn, a place that seems to come to life in a fairy tale," say the impressed tourists.
