Private tour in Tallinn, duration 4 hours
From the earliest times, Estonians have used the sea and the sea has shaped the history of the country. So is the Baltic Sea the very reason Tallinn exists. The location of the city on the coast of the Gulf of Finland has formed its essence and made it one of the liveliest centers in this region of Europe during the Middle Ages. What followed wasn´t always so glorious yet was an interesting turn of events…
On this tour you will explore historical areas, former industrial sites, a residential district and more. You will learn about social and cultural topics, and a truly unique history featuring some colorful characters that have become the fabric of Tallinn.
The tour starts with a 1.5-hour guided walk along the narrow cobbled streets, one of Europe’s most complete walled cities. We focus on the lower section of the Old Town, bursting with medieval sights and exciting stories. History is on every street corner in this area. We`ll visit (amongst other things) Town Council´s Pharmacy from 1422; church of the Holy Spirit; Great Guild Hall; St. Catherine’s Passage with its open artists’ studios and some of the ancient watchtowers.
We then continue with a 2.5-hour drive along seaside areas, highlighting the role of the sea in the city’s development. Your private tour in Tallinn includes stops at places such as the notorious Patarei Sea Fortress-Prison; architecturally unique Seaplane Harbor; Noblessner territory once established as submarines shipyard…
You will also get to see the most outstanding urban park in Estonia housing Kadriorg Palace; the Office of the President and Kumu Art Museum; and characteristic locations like the Song Festival Grounds; an outdoor exhibition of Soviet Monuments and a neighborhood of private homes…. Each stop will have a different story to tell.
