Tallinn's Medieval Old Town takes on an especially magical quality this time of the year as a fresh powdering of snow covers its gabled rooftops and outdoor candles fill its cobblestone lanes with a flickering glow. Though the nights may be dark, winter is when you'll find Tallinn at its most enchanting.
The Christmas Tree on Town Hall Square was erected by the Brotherhood of Black Heads guild already in 1441, making it the first public Christmas tree ever put on display in Europe.
From shopping at the charming, old-fashioned Christmas Market to skating on Old Town's outdoor ice rink to enjoying a cup of mulled wine in a cosy café, every day brings new delights.
The frosty city is further brightened up by a full schedule of festive concerts, a jazz festival, film screenings and other engaging cultural events. Come and experience Tallinn's winter full of magic!
