Tallinn Estonia sits on the Baltic Sea in Northern Europe. Although it borders Russia, Tallinn is only two hours from Helsinki, Finland and you definitely get that Nordic feeling. Tallinn has definitely moved on since its independence in 1991 and has truly left the dark days of Soviet occupation behind.
Tallinn had been on our ‘must-visit’ list for years and during February 2019 we finally made the trip. Yes, we chose to go in February when the average high temperature is -2°C and a low best described as “bloody freezing“.
So what about Tallinn as a city break destination in the winter, should you grab your balaclava and take the trip?
