One Day in Tallinn, Estonia

Since we stayed in Helsinki for one week, we decided to go to Estonia for one day since it’s just a boat ride away from Helsinki. We took Tallink Megastar going there and spent the entire day just appreciating the beauty of this old, cultural city. I also created a vlog about our trip on my YT channel and you can watch it HERE. Tallinn is known for retaining the city’s old charm– the walled, cobblestoned Old Town, quaint cafes, and even Kiek in de Kok that’s a 15th century artillery tower. Browse through my travel diary and know more about my experience in Tallinn.

We took Tallink Megastar from Helsinki to Tallinn and it was only 2 hours going there. To be honest, you really won’t notice the time because there are so many things you can do while in transit.

There’s even a game room and a Burger King inside!

There was even a live band playing.

… And a HUGE shopping area!

And we’re here!!!! Here’s the Tallinn town hall.

Thanks to #VisitTallinn, we were able to get this card that includes free transportation + free entrance to a lot of museums and tourist places! You can use this for one whole day at Tallinn and it’ll save you a lot of money if you really want to go around and check the entire area. I heard you can even use this on the hop on hop off bus!

We ate at Restaurant Kaerajaan where they serve traditional Tallinn dishes. It’s located at the town hall too.

Tallinn is also known for their delicious almonds and fudge. Also, I only learned about this when I was already back in Helsinki so I wasn’t able to try it. Bummer.

St. Catherine’s passage.

Just like other tourist destinations, you can find a lot of stores and shops around the area.

St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. It’s an old Russian cathedral designed by Mikhail Preobrazhensky.

Probably my favorite spot in Tallinn. We went up to Toompea Hill to see the entire city.

Yes, there’s also a hipster district in Tallinn called Telliskivi and we spent the rest of our afternoon just shopping and eating around this area.

I wish we could’ve stayed longer so we can experience the night life here too– but hey, more reason to go back right? Thank you so much Visit Tallinn for taking good care of us! BMS.

    I know I’ve said it already, but you really are my inspiration on putting up my own blog. I also really really love your style and though we have different styles (I’m kind of a minimalist), I pick up a thing or two from you and inject it with mine to make it more fun! Like your short hair (I cut mine!), hoop earrings, eyeglasses and boots! I could go on and on but this is looking long already! 😂

    Continue inspiring people, not just in blogging or fashion, but also in feeling good about themselves.
    Pass your light on Laureen! ✨

    P.S. This is the link to my blog 😊

    P.P.S. My boyfriend told me we were about to *beso* last (Friday) night but I got down the stage already 😭
    I’ll be sure to catch your next talk, for now, virtual hug!!!

    Love, Karen 💕
