Tallinn
Stepping into Tallinn is like entering a real-life fairy tale. Cobblestone streets, narrow alleyways, red roofed houses, open air theaters, museums and local markets — Tallinn is pure joy. Also, don't forget, if one wants to enjoy Midsummer celebrations, Tallinn is the place to be!Getting around in TallinnWalk! Discovering Old Town in Tallinn is best done on foot. Honestly, that's the hub of tourism and most backpackers decide to stay there because of cost-effectiveness. If venturing outside, then the best options are bus and trams because it's very cheap. It doesn't really make sense to hire taxis. If one wants to go for a day trip to Finland, just take a ferry ride across! Remember, the euro is used in Estonia.Accommodation in TallinnThe Old Town is filled with hostels and has many a price range. If hostels aren't your scene, then the next best bet is Airbnb. Most tourist locations are in the vicinity and night life is pretty on point.What to eat in TallinnThe food scene in Tallinn is vast. From sandwiches to meat, Chinese to even Indian! But to get an authentic taste of Estonia, try Elk soup, flaky pork patty and local beer! The best place to indulge would be Old Town where there are plenty of restaurants and food stalls.
Vilnius
Vilnius, the capital city of Lithuania, is a mixture of the old and new. Slow paced life, happy people and the Baltic country's beautiful Baroque architecture draws a lot of tourists. It's a cheap country and gives your backpacking in Europe alone itinerary a must-visit stopover.Getting around in VilniusIt's easiest to walk in the Old Town area on it's cobblestone streets, gazing at old churches and soaking in the atmosphere. When venturing outside, use the trolley buses which ply back and forth all across the city. Buy a ticket from the driver and then punch in to validate it. Unlike many Eastern European countries, the euro is used in Lithuania.
