TravelPod Member ReviewsSt. Petersbourg Hotel Tallinn
Gracious, elegant hotel in a gorgeous old building in an even more gorgeous street in an outstandingly beautiful part of the world. Comfortable room with excellent bed, lovely and quiet. Wonderful food - we have tried both dinner and breakfast and they were quite different: dinner elegant and refined, breakfast enormous, hearty, and will set up up for a week. The biggest selection of delicious Baltic cold meats, smoked fish and pickles I've ever seen, and that's BEFORE they brought the hot breakfast! And finally, outstandingly helpful and friendly staff. The service in the outside terrace at dinner last night was some of the best I've ever experienced - so unobtrusive and yet he was right there the second one needed anything. Outstanding in every respect.

But apparently the spire acted a a huge lightening rod and the whole church was burnt down and rebuilt three times. It’s current height in only ...
... iesti läbi vettinud, jõeäärset kitsast rada ümbritsevad heinad on nagu märjad švammid, mis igal sammul vett riietesse juurde vajutavad. Soe just ei ole. Miks ma ei võiks olla kuskil soojas ja kuivas kohas?
Jalgrattur on rabatud kui poole kümne paiku kohale jõuan. Tulid selle vihmaga? Pakub oma gaasipriimust vee keetmiseks. Jah, peab sööma ja teed tegema ja panema selga ainsad järelejäänud kuivad riided - magamisriided. Iseseisvalt ma täna suure ...

We pass the KGB headquarters on Pitt Street , nicknamed the highest building in town, "because when you are in the basement you could already see Siberia"We head to the town hall and square, a pharmacy, the Raepteek in operation since 1422.
Our last stop is Kiek in de Kok (means peek into the kitchen) , where we take a great tour of the underground tunnels from medieval times. Originally there were 46 towers in the ...
... country. There's a 25% ethnic Russian population who lives here in relative peace, though relations between the two groups have not always been smooth as butter. Still, most Estonians seem to feel that what's happening in the Ukraine couldn't happen here -- the circumstances are just too different.
