== Location == This was the first hotel we stayed in when visiting Tallinn and it was only one night. After a long day of travelling, my sister and I didn’t fancy figuring out the Estonian public transport system so got a taxi to our hotel and luckily, it only cost close to €7. The location of the hotel was a bit strange though and we both looked a little worried about the area it was in as we were driving to it. We needn’t have worried though. The hotel is situated only a 5 minute walk away from the main city centre and a whole range of shops or a 15/20 minute walk from old Tallinn. The hotel itself is down a little ally that I would have never thought to look down in order to find it. Being wh...Read More

Hotel | "A mediocre hotel in Tallinn"

As we were in Tallinn twice during our holiday, my sister and I didn’t want to stay in the same hotel twice. Wanting something a bit more luxurious for the last couple of nights of our holiday, we decided to stay at the Hotel Kreutzwald, which looked and sounded a bit different to others we have stayed in before. == First Impressions == The hotel itself is situated on quite a busy main road which was not idea. The taxi from the airport had to drop us off at the side of the hotel, not in the car park so we had to walk down the street with our heavy luggage before we even got in the door. As you can see, things didn’t start off well and they continued the same way. As the automatic fro...Read More

Tallinn is definitely one of the most beautiful cities that I have been to and after exploring the old town, my sister and I decided we wanted to know a bit more about the history of the country. I knew after looking around online that there was a Estonian History Museum somewhere so we headed to the tourist information place to figure out where it was. Luckily, the walk from here wasn’t far at all, about 5 minutes. As we entered the museum, both of us were a little worried about how small it looked but decided to give it a go anyway seeing as the entrance fee was so cheap and we had a fair bit of time to kill. The main floor of the museum consists of many artifacts from the religion and w...Read More

When it came to finding things to do in Tallinn, my sister and I weren’t really sure what we wanted to do. The day before we left, I had a really good look online to see what would be open and what looked like the most interesting things to do. We only had one full day there so had to make the most of the time we had.One of the things that I most wanted to go and see was the Nuku Museum which is a museum of puppets. Now, I know this might sound like a pretty crazy thing to want to go and see but I had never seen anything like it before and I don’t know of anywhere else that has a museum like this. After looking up the museum, I did the clever thing and printed out a map so we knew where we...Read More

Quote:
When I was looking up things to do in Tallinn, the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral was high up on my list of things to go and see. Although I didn’t know much about the cathedral, it looked extremely beautiful from the pictures I saw online. == Location == The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral can be found at the top of Toompea hill in the old town of Tallinn. From anywhere in the old town, the hill is visible and although the cathedral is slightly hidden from the lower parts, you will still be able to see where you need to head to. The hill takes a good 5-10 minutes to walk up from the bottom and some of the cobbled streets can be quite confusing to navigate around but because of the height, th...Read More
