Tallinn is an excellent example of seamless intertwining of ancient European history and modern age. The capital of Estonia is not only a picturesque city with lots of narrow streets, old-time shops and craftsmen's shops; here vallums and 14-17 centuries Gothic Cathedrals rise near cozy cafes and modern shopping centers.
The city itself is an interesting architectural ensemble crowned by an ancient castle offering a fine view of Lower Town tortuous maze. If you are interested in atmosphere of mediaeval Europe and you always dreamt to visit practically an unaffected model of ancient architecture and see artworks of ancient and modern Estonian painters with your own eyes, Tallinn is just the thing.
Unique colour and one of few places where history is in harmony with the time being are waiting for you. However, as an interested listener has already understood, Tallinn is not so easy to explore with no outside help: it is easy to go astray walking the intertwining medieval streets with period houses.
