Estonia has plenty to offer in the way of natural beauty, but its cities also boast an exciting mix of bustling activity and old-world charm.
Travelers in Estonia will have a multitude of options when it comes to picking a city to stay in, but most will be drawn to the capital of Tallinn on the Northern coast. Tallinn is a beautifully-preserved city built in the medieval style. While tourists will find all the modern amenities they could ask for, they should also visit the old town, where the buildings still look as they did when they were first built.
Tallinn is a vibrant city with a bustling nightlife and arts scene. One must-see location is the Kumu Art Museum, which was named the European Museum of the Year in 2008 - no small feat given Europe's vast amount of famous institutions. Visitors to Tallinn will also want to take some time to shop, whether its in a modern shopping center or one of the many boutiques in the old town district.
Estonia has several other cities worth checking out. The beach town of Parnu truly comes alive in the summer, and its located close to natural attractions like Kihnu Island or Soomaa National Park.
Younger travelers may also be interested in Tartu, the home of several Estonian universities and thus an up-and-coming hotspot of culture and fun.
