Take a few days during your European vacation to visit the charming city of Tallinn. This erstwhile party capital of the Baltic boasts the best-preserved medieval city centre in Europe and one of the best tourist infrastructures in the region.


This 4-day city stopover in Tallinn is a perfect add-on to a larger exploration of Eastern Europe and its cultural wonders. It allows you to choose your preferred level of accommodation and can be modified or extended. We at Goway are experts in customizing itineraries to suit your personal interests and budget and are at your service!

If you want to explore a city that mixes medieval history with modern eccentricity, then Tallinn is the city for you. Your Estonia tour in Tallinn takes you off the beaten track to explore a city in a rapid state of change. While the past decade saw Tallinn take over as the Baltic’s party capital, it’s making a classical comeback showing off its charming heritage. A city tour will show you just what makes this Baltic capital so lovable. You’ll visit the Old Town of Vanalinn, the best-preserved medieval centre in all of Europe. In Vanalinn, you’ll find the Russian Orthodox Cathedral of Alexander Nevsky as well as the domed Cathedral of St. Mary. If your interest extends beyond medieval architecture, you can spend your time exploring the exploding arts and crafts scene and indulge in the roaring nightlife. This Tallinn stopover also includes a visit to Saaremaa Island where you’ll explore stone castles, hill forts, and thatched-roof villages.
