Tallinn’s medieval Old Town (you have a new and an old part) is rather small and easy to explore within a day. I’ve visited the city twice during my Erasmus adventure and pinky swear, Tallinn has its charm any time of the year! The first time being there was in the middle of winter when my parents and sister came to visit me at my dorm in Finland; the second time was with my boyfriend at the beginning of Spring.
People often say that ‘former Soviet’ countries are dull and grey, but the opposite is true when it comes to Tallinn. All those colored old building breathes happiness and has so much character. You’ll see in a minute, I got proof. ;)
Alexander Nevsky Cathedral
With those black and orange details, the Alexander Nevsky cathedral will get your attention for sure while walking up to Toompea Hill.
