Tallinn at a Glance

Tallinn has famous nightlife, a rich medieval history and has blossomed with new clubs, restaurants, cafes and contemporary art galleries since the fall of the Soviet Union.

Many people visit Tallinn to join the crowds of dancers, drinkers and revelers inside the clubs that shake the walls of the old city. Tallinn has a fierce party spirit  and dancers often find themselves leaving as the first rays of sunlight hit the church spires and stone fortifications. For those who haven't been up all night, the old city has charming cafes, art galleries and plenty of historic churches and towers to explore. Learn about Tallinn's early history as a fortified city, its growth and splendid buildings, its Soviet years, right up to its re-birth as a contemporary center.
