Discover Tallinn, capital of Estonia

Kadriorg is one of the more dignified areas even today, and one of the best loved residential regions of Tallinn. The Estonian president’s residence and many foreign embassies are located here. The park is one of the favourite spots for walking of Tallinners young and old. But Kadriorg is famed mostly for its baroque palace and park ensemble, begun in 1718 as the summer palace for the family of Russian tsar Peter I. In February 2006 the Estonian Art Museum opened in Kadriorg. Kumu is the first purpose-built museum in Estonia – KUMU – where both classical and contemporary Estonian art are displayed and exhibitions on international contemporary art are held
St Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, a spectacular, onion-domed structure perched atop Toompea Hill is Estonia's main Russian Orthodox cathedral and just off Town Hall Square stands a 14th-century Holy Spirit Church with an octagonal tower
Open since as far back as 1422, the Town Hall Pharmacy is a curious little shop, in fact the oldest continuously running pharmacy in Europe. Remedies sold at the pharmacy in Medieval times included snakeskin potion, mummy juice and powdered unicorn horn. Marzipan was one of the pharmacy's best sellers, one that local legend insists was actually invented as a curative here in the 15th century
On the slopes of Toompea hill between the city wall and Lower Town is an open, garden-like area that happens to be the legendary birthplace of the Danish flag. This relaxing spot is called the Danish King's Garden because it was supposedly here that King Valdemar II of Denmark and his troops camped before conquering Toompea in 1219
You won't be blamed for imagining you can hear monks chanting as you wander through the corridors of St Catherine’s Dominican Monastery. Established in 1246, this is Tallinn’s oldest intact building
Towers Square gets its name from the Town Wall towers that border one of its sides, and the fact that a number of the church spires can be seen from here
Ever since the German Knights of the Sword first built a stone fortress here in 1227-29, every foreign empire that ruled Estonia used the Toompea Castle as its base. Today it's home to Estonia's Parliament.
