Tallinn’s small heart
Traveling is the moment of life that you always want to extend. It doesn’t matter what direction you take: by plane, bus or even on foot.
The main thing is an inner feeling of joy, a premonition of new discoveries, interesting acquaintances and momentous meetings. Christmas travel always arouses great interest among tourists. This is a fairy tale that is remembered throughout the year.
We do not hesitate to pack our bags, take good friends with us and go on the road. Today, we invite you to visit medieval Tallinn. Alluring and thoughtful … Fabulous city of childhood, in which you always want to return.
Imagine that snow is falling, the stars are shining in the sky, and you are walking through the old town. In Tallinn, you need to make dates, confess love, make a marriage proposal. But we will begin our journey from the very beginning.
The best solution for your trip depends on you. Bus tours, train, plane, ferry … The choice is always for the tourist. It is possible that you want to combine a visit to the Estonian capital with a rest in other places. This is possible. Travel companies will offer you a large number of options. However, you yourself will be able to cope with this task. The most economical offer is a bus tour. Be prepared for the fact that in the winter season you will need to come to terms with some features of the bus journey: snow-covered roads, early twilight, etc.
But driving through the villages covered with snow, and drawing patterns on the windows, you look at life with very different eyes.
Instead of windows, empty eye sockets,
Poplars, only poplars,
The branches are like thick eyelashes,
In the white flakes silent fields …
Random lights flashed inspire confidence in the hearts of travelers. Somewhere ahead of the city of dreams.
Tallinn is ready to meet you at any time of the day or night. Imagine that you have already arrived and are comfortably accommodated in a hotel. The hotel can be chosen in the city center or a little away. Of course, it will be much better if you don’t have a long walk to the old city. After tiring hours on the road, a cheerful and sunny Tallinn morning will surely come. A delicious breakfast and a good mood will inspire you for an interesting walk. Medieval Tallinn is already waiting for you.
