31 Photos Guaranteed to Make You Want to Visit Tallinn

Loved Tallinn. I was expecting drunk stag groups and grim Soviet vibes but instead I found a quaint and unique city filled with interesting boutique shops, healthy restaurants, hipster bars, stunning parks and a full schedule of year round festivals.

I’ll definitely be going back.

I took a lot of photos in my four days in Tallinn, seeing as I’d just got my new camera, so here are 31 of my most favourite, guaranteed to make you want to book that cheapo flight and get yourself over to Estonia. Or at least think about doing it, for a few seconds.

1. Loads of healthy restaurants


2. Wine Museum, with samples


3. Stunning viewpoints, with a sense of humour


4. City centre waterfalls


5. Hipster barbers


6. Al fresco dining by a castle

So, Tallinn, persuaded?


I’m getting a few emails asking me about these photos. They’re not Photoshopped, I don’t even know how to use the program.

They’re all taken on the Olympus PEN E-PL7 Touchscreen Camera, which I’d just bought especially for the trip.

Combined with my (minimal) photography skills, it was obviously worth it.

The President of Estonia has just shared this article on his Facebook page!

I'm from Tallinn and love this town. But i've never seen it with your eyes. It's great, really great. Thank you for the new beauty!

Great pictures. Estonia is a very beautiful and modern place. I'm surprised by some of the idiotic and ignorant comments here though, I've visited all over Europe/America and wouldn't say it is any different from other more well-known places. Most probably they are the types of people who have never even visited any other Central and Eastern EU countries like Estonia, Hungary, Czech Republic, Croatia etc and try to claim that they look the way they did 30 years ago, but w/e.

Hey! I'm travelling to Estonia in less than a week and I'd love to know what the restaurant in photo number 29 is and where it is?

Hi Martha, if you walk up to the castle that overlooks the town square you'll see it. It's hard to miss – just look up high!
