This shore excursion provides a colorful look at the many different faces of Tallinn. You will start your journey with a drive to the medieval Lower Old Town and have a stroll on the cobbled streets. Take some memorable photos on the vibrant Town Hall Square and continue your contrasting tour out of the Old Town. After rejoining your coach you will pass Kadriorg Park, built by Peter the Great, to stop at the Song Festival Ground and hear stories about this historically important place that has played essential role for Estonia’s independence. Continue your journey past different residential areas, including Soviet style apartment blocks and quaint private houses. To have a more realistic understanding of Estonian peasant life in the 19th-20th centuries, you will visit the Viimsi Open Air Museum, which displays buildings from a former coastal farm. Then enjoy some coffee and pastry before returning to port. From ancient cathedrals to modern music festivals, there's a lot to discover in this diverse Estonian city.
