European Baltic Journey Tallinn Estonia

Tallinn, Estonia

We finally arrived in the capital city of Estonia. We were really shocked to see the cultural differences between Latvia and Estonia. Even though they are neighbouring countries their society and cultures were completely different. This was also the feedback I got from my host friend who is a native Latvian.

We had a very short period of time to explore this vast city before we had to return to Latvia. So, we started exploring from the Old Town of Tallinn. Basically, the city is divided between Old Town and more modern parts of the city.

Old Town is all about Gothic style churches, medieval buildings and the history of Tallinn. It’s one of the best preserved medieval cities in Europe and is listed as a Unesco World Heritage site as well. However, Tallinn outside the Old Town area is completely opposite.

The city is also known for its digitally advanced technology, startups and IT Businesses. It is the birthplace of many high tech international companies making it one of the fastest growing developing countries in Europe.

It also serves as the home for the EU’s IT agency and NATO’s Cyber Defense Center of Excellence and is listed as one of the top ten digital cities in the world. One of the things I liked best about this city was how nicely old and modern periods are combined together in one place.

I regret not having had enough time to try traditional Estonian food but I did end up trying their most popular pizza place and it was amazing! The place was called Kaja Pizza Köök. Definitely another must try when in Tallinn.

I never planned to visit Baltic countries since those countries are really underrated in comparison to other European countries but how wrong I was. I had one of the best moments of my life in Latvia and Tallinn!

Therefore, you must make it a point to visit Latvia and Estonia as well because its culture and people are gonna last forever in your heart. I promise!

Here’s a video of the stunning city of Tallinn, Estonia…
