Sadly, the Baltic states as a whole are usually ignored by tourists. On the upside, this is part of the reason why they have so effortlessly retained their charm.
Tallinn, the Estonian capital, has risen with grace from its time under the hold of the Soviet Union. Its Old Town, a walled medieval city, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, defined by its iconic coned terracotta roofs, gothic architecture and cobblestones.
Perfectly complementing this preserved history is an eclectic sense of modernity. Art galleries, chic cafés, and high-end restaurants offer comfort and luxury to travelers, far from Europe’s tourist hot spots.
