DAY ONE - ARRIVE IN TALLINN
Tallinn is the capital city of Estonia and an ideal holiday destination if you want to combine the comforts of modern world, versatile nightlife and luxurious adventures with rich cultural scene in the local historical setting. Tallinn’s medieval Old Town is known around the world for it’s authentic Hanseatic architecture. Enjoy the cobblestone streets and houses dating back as far as to 11th century.
DAY TWO - TALLINN OLD TOWN
Tallinn excursion (2,5hrs) - on the tour we cover: Town Hall Square, Freedom Square, Danish King's Garden, Parliament Building, City Wall, Alexander Nevsky Cathedral and Toompea Castle was erected on the foundations of the crumbling eastern wing of the fortress built on the site in the 13th and 14th centuries. Eyecatching for its late baroque facade, the castle was built between 1767 and 1773. Today the castle is home to the Riigikogu (the Estonian parliament).
The afternoon is free to wander the town centre’s many shops, galleries, cafés & restaurants.
DAY THREE - KADRIORG CASTLE
Tour in Kadriorg palace (2hr) - it can be considered to be the grandest example of palace and park design in Estonian architectural history. The palace, originally an imperial summer residence, has been extremely well preserved since the early 18th century. Designed to resemble the Italian palaces of the time, the palace has a facade which is three levels at the front and sides and two levels at the rear in a mix of architectural styles. A banquet hall and winter garden were added to the rear facade of the palace in 1933/34.
Excursion in the Seaplane Harbour museum (2hr) is a memorable experience for the whole family: lots of interesting reading, a voyage around the world in the Yellow Submarine, photos taken in naval uniforms, the big aquarium, the simulators, paper plane precision throwing and many more exciting activities. The Seaplane Harbour, including the Seaplane Hangar, was built to become part of Peter the Great’s naval fortress 100 years ago on orders from the Russian emperor Nicholas II. The architecture of the Hangar is remarkable, featuring the world’s first columnless thin-shell concrete domes of such volume. The building was used for seaplanes until the Second World War!
DAY FOUR - DEPARTURE
Arrangements end after breakfast with transfer to the airport.
