Day 1

Me and my husband arrived in Tallinn, Estonia from Helsinki, Finland by Eckero Line ferry. It was just a 2hour 15mins journey and costed around 45 Euros for 2 ppl. It was an amazing experience...There was live music, restaurants on the lower & upper decks and even Casino Slot machines on board. We had a great time. We had booked our accomodation in the Old Town, Tallinn which was a short 10 minute walk from the Port. After check in, we rested for a while then headed out to explore the Old Town. The Main Town Hall Square was so lively and buzzing with tourists. There were handicraft/souvenir stalls all over the place and quaint Cafes & Restaurants offering various cuisines. We bought a couple of souvenirs and tried the local cuisine at one of the Restaurants. The weather was lovely, around 15 degrees. We enjoyed the evening.

Day 2

Just off the Main Square is a road going to the top of Toompea Hill. It was a short and easy climb uphill. The views of the picturesque Old Town from the top were breathtaking. There are a few other sights on Toompea Hill like Churches etc. and restaurants & souvenir shops. This was the highlight of our Tallinn trip.

Day 3

On the last day, after completing our sightseeing of the Old Town, we decided to visit the Olympic Park Casino at the Hilton which was a 20 min walk from the Old Town. We had a great time there. We then returned to the Old Town for dinner. There are a few bars and nightclubs in the Old Town. We had a couple of drinks and ended our trip on a happy note. I have been to many European Countries but the Old Town in Tallinn is one of the most beautiful. It was definitely worth the visit.
