Tallin: One of the best-preserved and most comprehensive medieval cities in Europe
As one of the best-preserved and most comprehensive medieval cities in Europe, Estonia’s ancient seacoast capital exudes a sense of romantic history.
A spirit of mystery still pervades the cobbled courtyards of Tallinn’s picturesque old town where winding alleys, overhung with original 12th and 13th century merchant’s houses combine a profusion of perfectly-preserved medieval churches and state buildings.
Tallinn, released just over a decade ago from the clutches of Soviet rule is not, however, stuck in the Dark Ages!
This well-kept city and UNESCO world heritage site is just as forward-thinking as any other modern European capital. We recommend you leave your luxury MSC cruise ship for the day and opt for one of our unique Tallinn excursion packages.
Not only will you enjoy the best deals on all the sights, we cater for passengers’ different tastes. Culture buffs will be eager to experience the special ‘Art and Architecture tour’, an informative guide that covers Tallinn’s main sights.
If it is your first holiday in Estonia you will really get a flavour for local culture in the full day trip around Tallinn and the nearby Open Air Museum – a reconstruction of life in the 18th century and great for children, too.
Add a sporty element to your vacation here with a fun bike ride around the Open Air Museum combined with a relaxing ride through picturesque woodlands.
Whether you leave the ship for shopping and sightseeing or history and culture, your day will be set against a backdrop of fairytale architecture and you are sure to leave enchanted.
