Tallinn Travel Guide
Plan Your Tallinn Vacation
The oldest capital city in northern Europe, Tallinn—or Reval as it was known for most of the last 600 years— first appeared on a map in 1154 and its Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. For a city whose history reaches back beyond the Teutonic Knights, Tallinn as also been described by The New York Times as “as sort Silicon Valley of the Baltic Sea” and the success of the IT sector here is reflected in the city’s modern business area. Tallinn was also named the European City of Culture in 2011, cementing its growing reputation as a cultural hotspot.
