TripAdvisor Reviews Hotel Telegraaf Tallinn
Travel Blogs from Tallinn
It’s a rainy Monday evening in Tallinn. I arrived yesterday by ferry. It was an easy check-in but a long walk up 3
floors to boarding. I was on deck 9 on a
very quiet area of the ship with a perfect view. I felt the ship move so perhaps it’s not as
gigantic as I thought it was.
FROM MY SEAT …
... is also the place with the most persevered city wall in the world and it is very impressive to see how well it has survived. The old town has also weathered very well with lovely cobbled streets and houses dating back to the 11th century! The view from the higher part of the city is a particularly impressive spot for a panorama of the majority of the old town. In 1997 the old town became an UNESCO World Heritage Site and it's easy to see why! We passed the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral ...

That part of town doesn't really have a beachfront, though there is one about a 15-minute bike ride away.

... to be. 26th floor, easygoing, cocktail lounge with a view over Riga. Even the toilets have a view. I will ensure I put up a photo. Smithy, was able to come in a join us, so had another catch up with him. We then headed down to ground level to the nightclub. Awesome venue, with a mix of music, including a singer who gets up and belts out some tunes... She was fantastic. Another great night. Tomorrow we leave for our final northern country of Estonia, before heading east to ...
Anyways, we headed back out for a walk and stopped off to have Pizza, yes I know not really traditional Danish food but all was good.
The Danish people are very beautiful and very fit. Bike riders everywhere. hardly an overweight person to be seen, excepts for us the tourists!
Well after a bad night with my back, I thought walking it off might help but alas it just got worse so I said goodbye to the others ...
