Tallinn: Top Travel Destination 2018

Tallinn is a city where old and new come together. As Estonia celebrates its 100th anniversary of independence in 2018, there’s never been a better time to visit. Tallinn was named Lonely Planet’s Best Value Destination of 2018. Worth exploring is the up-and-coming Kalamaja district, boasting a truly bohemian atmosphere, and the Telliskivi Creative City; but all of the city’s neighborhoods have their own distinct personality. Now, TrainAway can also help you find the best gyms in Tallinn while on your sightseeing tour. 

Tallinn offers the curious visitor a wide variety of things to see and experience, from visiting museums, churches, and parks to walking around the beautiful old town of Tallinn to window-shopping at the historic handicraft and glassblowing shops.
