Winter is officially upon us! But hey, that’s not such a bad thing in Tallinn. The medieval cobblestones are often tucked under a snowy blanket, the warm glow of the shop windows radiate out onto the romantic streets, and although the majority of the city’s residents are bundled up quite snugly against the winter chill, you’ll still find quite a few stiletto-toting, physics-defying fashionistas out and about.If you’ve come to Tallinn over the holidays, you’ll also get to enjoy the long-running ‘Christmas Market’, having been previously chosen as one of the top Christmas markets in Europe by the “Times Online” and “The Daily Telegraph”. Read more about it in our events.
Besides the historic Old Town, there are so many other reasons to spend a little time in this gem of a city. Read about the bohemian district of Kalamaja, or the quaint Viimsi area just north of the city. Also make sure to check out our Christmas Gift Ideas feature in the printed guide, where we take you on a tour of some of Tallinn’s hottest shops, boutiques, and studios.
Wishing you all a pleasant holiday and a Happy New Year!
