Description

Your guide will meet you at your accommodation and drive you past the modern city centre to Kadriorg Park. You’ll take a stroll in the park and see a palace constructed on the command of Peter the Great.

Afterwards, you’ll return to the bus and travel to the Song Festival Grounds where important Estonian Song Festivals are held every five years.

Next, you’ll visit the Kose-Pirita district where you’ll see a totally different type of architecture – private houses with neat gardens. In the Pirita area you’ll pass by the ruins of the Convent of St. Bridget and the beautiful sailing harbour.

Viimsi Parish is situated just 15 kilometres north of Tallinn's city centre. It’s both a nature lover’s getaway and a worthy destination for history buffs. You’ll visit the seaside Viimsi Open-Air Museum located on a historical farm, and one of Estonia’s oddest-looking restaurants, Paat (“Boat”). Here, you can warm up with a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy a dessert.
