The little heart of Tallinn
Travels are moments of life that you always want to extend. It doesn’t matter where you go: by plane, bus or even on foot.
The main thing is an internal feeling of joy, a premonition of new discoveries, interesting acquaintances and fateful meetings. Christmas travel is always of great interest to tourists. This is a fairy tale that is remembered all year.
We do not hesitate to pack our bags, take good friends with us and hit the road. Today, we invite you to visit medieval Tallinn. Alluring and brooding …. A fabulous city of childhood, which you always want to return to.
Imagine that snow is falling, stars are shining in the sky, and you are walking in the old city. In Tallinn, you need to make dates, confess your love, make a marriage proposal. But let’s start our journey from the very beginning.
The best decision for your trip is up to you. Bus tours, train, plane, ferry … The choice is always up to the tourist. It is possible that you want to combine a visit to the Estonian capital with a vacation in other places. It is possible. Travel companies will offer you a large number of options. However, you yourself will be able to cope with this task. The most economical offer is a bus tour. Be prepared for the fact that in the winter season you will need to come to terms with some features of bus travel: snowy roads, early twilight, etc.
But while driving through snow-covered villages, and drawing patterns on the windows, you look at life with completely different eyes.
Instead of windows, empty eye sockets,
Poplars, only poplars,
Branches like thick eyelashes
There are dumb fields in white flakes …
Accidentally flashing lights inspire confidence in the hearts of travelers. Somewhere ahead of the city of dreams.
