Tallinn, Estonia is a beautiful medieval city in the Baltic, mostly very quiet, laid back, and peaceful. Big cruise ships connect Helsinki and Tallinn 20 times per day, and there is never a better place to watch them than far away. So I took a stroll along the coastal line; it was an incredible experience.

Kadriorg and Park Area

Two days in a row, I spent most of my time in Old Town and sightseeing around the city. Then, I decided to take a walk away from the city. It was a bright and sunny morning for a long walk from my hotel all the way to the Maarjamae War memorial.

A Walk Along The Baltic Sea

Walking through the park, between the beautiful big trees and boardwalk with a breathtaking view of Tallinn Bay on the left and Pirita Road (Lasnamae district) on the right, was one of the best things you could do while visiting this beautiful city.

Arrived at Maarjamae war Memorial

At the end of my long stroll, I arrived at the Maarjamae War Memorial, which was built for those who had fallen defending the Soviet Union. Finally, I thought it was enough time for me to call it off for the day.

Tallinn Skyline From a Distance

A 4 km walk was an enjoyable one. On my way, I saw Tallinn Song Festival Grounds, Russalka Memorial, a bronze monument erected in 1902 to mark the sinking of the Russian warship Rusalka en route to Finland in 1893. A beautiful view of the old town of Tallinn from miles away was spectacular.

Tallinn Port

I could also see many passenger ships coming to and from the city port and disappearing on the horizon. I have taken pictures to capture those beautiful moments. Beautiful white sandy beaches were deserted, but I could imagine how crowded it would be in the summertime.

I would recommend this to those who like to escape the city crowd and still enjoy the city from a distance.
