Estonia - Small but Beautiful
Tallin old townEstonia is a popular tourist attraction. People from all over the world come to this beautiful country with the purpose of: getting familiar with its ancient culture; attend music festivals (widely-preferred option in this region) and take a rest on the sea resorts of the Baltic region.
Estonia is remarkable for its sandy beaches and rocky sea coasts; old mansions; ruins of ancient castles; churches and monasteries built centuries ago; symbiosis of different cultures and long history. Tourists who come to Estonia on weekend tours or on holidays are offered wonderful recreational facilities.

Tallinn (the capital of the country) is one of the most well-preserved ancient cities of Europe. The city’s name was first mentioned in manuscripts in 1154. The historical centre of the city – the Old City – is situated on the hill. It is famous for numerous cathedrals; fortifications walls and medieval towers. The city’s castle was founded by crusaders in the 13th century. During the entire course of its history, the castle was rebuilt many times. At the present days the castle complex is supplemented with a gothic cathedral “Thomas Church” (13th-15th centuries); a massive baroque style tower (18th century); three fortification towers (including the famous “Long Hermann” Tower) situated at corners of the entire complex.
It is interesting to note that Estonia is famous for its small cozy houses with roofs covered by red slates; narrow windy streets paved with polished stones; ruins of city walls built in medieval times; gothic roofs and numerous weathercocks. All these elements make Estonia a unique place in Old Europe.

One of the main tourist attractions of Tallinn is the City Hall Square. The city hall itself was built in 1404 – on its roof one can see the most famous Estonia weathercocks named “Old Thomas”. Here tourists can find excellent shopping and walking facilities; restaurants and cafés serving meals of national kitchen. Tourists can have their photos taken in the special metal circle symbolizing the centre of Tallinn; attend the Europe’s oldest chemist etc.

Estonia used to be a part of the Russian Empire. Russian Tsar Peter I built here a palace surrounded by park. Now this place is used as the official residence of the President of Estonia. People are invited here to listen to chamber music orchestras and attend exhibitions of fine arts.

As a matter of fact, there are more than 20 museums in Tallinn. There are: the Museum of Fine Arts (paintings and sculptures); the Marine Museum (representing exhibits connected with sea navigation and industry); the Museum Under Open Sky (demonstrating historical and cultural exhibits); the State Historical Museum; the Tallinn Municipal Museum (here visitors can see exhibits connected with the city’s establishment and history) and a lot of others.
