Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, is located in the north-eastern part of the country. This city of approximately 400,000 inhabitants is the country’s most important seaport.
Summer is the best time to visit Tallinn. Temperatures average 16.7°C; however, at times, they can rise to as high as 30°C. Winter is quite severe; autumn, wet.
For years, Tallinn’s location made it the bone of contention between Russia, Germany and the Scandinavian countries. Through the years, the city was looted, ransacked and bombed several times. Nevertheless, today it is a flourishing cultural and commercial centre.
In 1997, the old town Tallinn was included on UNESCO’s World Heritage List as a site of cultural importance.
