The capital of the Estonian Republic is one of the oldest capital cities in Northern Europe. It is one of the best retained medieval European towns, especially the Old Town with its unique medieval surroundings. The unique value of Tallinn’s Old Town lies first and foremost in the well-preserved completeness of its medieval milieu and structure, which has been lost in most of the capitals of Northern Europe. Since 1997 Tallinn is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
During the past ten years our capital has developed into a modern and open city with new tall glass and steel buildings, illuminated signs of major international companies, large shopping malls, newly renovated airport, ever growing cargo and dozens of new manufacturing and warehouse complexes. Tallinn offers much to discover for people with various interests – for those who love the arts, as well as for those who are interested in nightlife, for gourmet lovers, for shoppers, for friends of nature and many others.
