A brief walk in the UNESCO-listed Tallinn Old Town inspires everyone from history buffs and architecture admirers to boutique-shoppers. Picturesque cobbled streets like Lühike Jalg, Vaimu or St Catherine’s Passage are bound to set the right mood for a romantic city break. For an unforgettable experience, be sure to visit Kohtuotsa viewing platform, as this is the perfect place for watching the sunrise. If you’re visiting Tallinn in winter, be sure to get on the ice at Harju Ice Rink, or at least walk by and get the magical feeling. Harju ice rink is just a few steps away from the vibrant Adamson-Eric Museum, as well as the coziest cafes and restaurants in Tallinn. For evening entertainment, head to this majestic, historic opera house – Estonian National Opera.
Don’t just spend your time in the Old Town as there are romantic discoveries aplenty in Kadriorg and Pirita. Have a walk in Kadriorg Park where the beautiful Swan Pond and Japanese Garden are a must. For those of you with a literary interest, find out about one of Estonia’s great writers and his love story at the Eduard Vilde Museum. Not far from the park and the museum, lies the Pirita promenade. This offers by far the most spectacular views of Tallinn’s rocky shoreline, with the Old Town cityscape in the distance.
If the promenade is a great place for a romantic walk all year round, then summer brings out some seasonal delights. For example, Tallinn Botanic Garden, near to Pirita Beach, and Tallinn TV Tower, is a great destination for relaxation. It’s a nice spot for picnics or just for a stroll through the colorful rose garden. Pirita offers also some nice ideas for evening entertainment. This is true, whether you decide to end your day with a romantic dinner at NOA, one of Tallinn’s best gourmet restaurants, or to visit Viimsi 18+ Spa, where you can get away from the hustle and bustle and focus on spending quality time in the more soothing environment.
