Question about Tallinin and Riga.

Jump to last reply

I've allotted three days each for seeing Tallinin, Estonia, and Riga, Latvia. However, as I read my Lonely Planet, it appears that there's a lot more to see in Riga than in Tallinin. I'm interested in history--WWII and the Cold War, architecture, and culture. I like those open air museums and museums that show how people lived in past times. I'm not crazy about art museums. Riga, of course, has the wonderful art nouveau facades, which I love.

Those of you who've been to both cities, what do you think? Should I add another day to Riga? Or are three days enough? I'm a very relaxed tourist--I'm not running from one sight to another. I'll probably keep Tallinin to three nights because I'll be taking a train from St. Petersburg, which will cut down my time in Tallinin to 2 and 1/2 days anyway.
