The next time you plan a trip to the capital of Estonia make sure to consider our Tallinn car hire services. Tallinn has maintained its medieval center with its cobbled streets and medieval houses, in fact there are still parts of the old city wall which used to protect it from invasions.
If you fly into the city then you will be landing at Tallinn Airport, it is located a mere five kilometers from the city center and connected to it via bus routes and of course taxis but your best choice by far would be to employ our Tallinn car rental services and have a car ready for you at the airport as soon as you land.
Once you get into you should definitely check out the Medieval Old Town. This is a place best navigated on foot as it is wonderfully preserved and compact, as towns tended to be five hundred years ago.
Then there’s Toompea Hill, this is the site where the Danish built a castle in 1219 thus founding the city as well. The aristocracy that lived here was oftentimes at odds with the inhabitants of the village and this is why the castle is surrounded by thick walls and the entrance is guarded by a gate tower.
The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral is a classic 19th century Russian Orthodox church that has become something of a tourist symbol of the city even though some locals consider it to be a symbol of Soviet oppression.
The remnants of the City Wall can be climbed and the towers can be visited as well but the spiral staircases are rather steep and narrow so those who suffer from claustrophobia should take care if they want to enter and climb them.
There are quite a few attraction outside of the city as well such as the Tallinn Zoo and the Open Air Museum, the later including seventy-two traditional Estonian buildings.
These are of course only a few of the many attractions that Tallinn has to offer its visitors and in order to see as many of them as possible you would be best served to employ our Tallinn car hire services.
