This is a tale of two cities.
Visitors justifiably swoon over Tallinn for its perfectly intact medieval centre. Founded in 1154, it lies on the northern coast of Estonia and is the country’s hub for culture and tourism, as well as its capital.
But there is more to Tallinn’s charms than its UNESCO-listed Old Town. Cross its railway tracks and you will discover a very different side of the city. Telliskivi Creative City with its street art, craft beer and designer studios, and the iconic wooden buildings of Kalamaja offer a refreshing alternative to the cutesy appeal of Tallinn’s medieval centre.
