Readers offer their most useful advice and tips for stays in Tallinn, the Estonian capital.
Tallinn is a gem of a city and has been luring me back repeatedly since my first visit in 2005. The picture-perfect medieval Old Town is a Unesco World Heritage Site and deservedly so. Explore its narrow streets and alleyways and discover art galleries, craft and vintage shops and indulge in a coffee and cake en route at the gorgeous Café Josephine (Vene 16).
Visit the splendid Russian Orthodox Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, built during the Russian empire, or the Kadriorg Palace, the former palace of Peter the Great) and now a renovated art museum, to get a real flavour of Estonian history.
There’s a wide variety of good-value and stylish hotels at decent prices. My favourites include the contemporary Nordic Forum (Viru Väljak 3; nordichotels.eu) and Baltic Hotel Vana Wiru (Viru Street 11; vanawiru.ee), in the heart of the Old Town. There are plenty of restaurants: the Olde Hansa (Vana Turg 1; oldehansa.ee), complete with waitresses in medieval dress, though touristy, is none the less great fun.
