Estonia Day Tour 2nd part; Tallinn City Walk

Day trip to quickly sight-see the best marvels of Estonia
June 28, 2015

I roam the city through self-guided walk accompanied by a downloaded map online starting from Talinn Coach Station which is around 3 kilometer away to the Old town. I passed-by the Kumu (the largest one in the Baltics and one of the largest art museums in Northern Europe), Kadriorg Park and Palace (Petrine Baroque palace built for Catherine I of Russia by Peter the Great which means "Catherine's valley"), Toompea (limestone hill in the central part of the city), Alexander Nevsky Cathedral and how locals and other tourists hassles on the streets. Photography and video taking is allowed.

Tallinn, lies on the southern coast of the Gulf of Finland, only 70 km (43 mi) south of Helsinki. At the historical and medieval heart of the city is the hill of Toompea, covered in cobbled streets and filled with medieval houses and alleyways. The lower town spreads out from the foot of the hill, still protected by the remnants of a city wall. Around the city wall is a series of well-maintained green parks, great for strolling. The city's old town has been astonishingly well preserved and was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1997, it is now in better shape than ever, with the bigger roads converted into fashionable shopping streets reminiscent of Zürich or Geneva.
