Estonia’s capital Tallinn has in recent years emerged as a gem at the Baltic Sea. The reason is the Old Town, beautifully restored buildings, proximity to the sea and great prices. But in winter, do you really want to go here? Find out!
Autumn in Tallinn starts usually mild, and it is not unusual with temperatures up to 15 degrees during the day in October. In November it will be cold for real and freezing temperatures are almost mandatory. Wet snow is common, with mild winds from the Baltic Sea.
When the weather is dull, there are a lot of indoor activities to do. From the ferry terminal to downtown is about 15 minutes walk so an umbrella or warm clothing can be a good idea.
The Naval Museum
Here you can among other things see and go into the submarine Lembit from 1936. With over 300,000 annual visitors to the museum is it worth at least an hour.
Needs no introduction. In Tallinn, it is two square meters of retail space on each inhabitant.
Alexander Nevsky Cathedral
In and around Tallinn are many spas. A couple of hours here can cost half the price compared to Western Europe.
