Tallinn is a beautiful city which has preserved its history. One of the highlights of Tallinn is the Medieval Old Town. However, there are interesting attractions in each area of the city. Tallinn is divided into different districts, each with its own character and sightseeing spots.
This district is mainly a residential area with large panel buildings of Väike-Õismäe, mainly built during the 1970s. Lake Harku and an extensive beach area at Kakumäe, also the Kopli Gulf all make it a great recreational place. Attractions include Rocca-al-Mare Kaubanduskeskus which is the largest mall in the city and Premia Ice Hall where the family can enjoy an indoor ice rink.

Tallinn, a UNESCO world heritage site, was founded in the 12th century and has been under the rule of Denmark, Sweden, and Germany as well as Russia, and all left their mark on the city's architecture. It is one of the best preserved medieval towns in northern Europe, and makes a beautiful impression from the sea, with its ancient city walls, church spires, and red-tile roofed homes. At the Old Town, you pass beneath the arches of Tallinn's ancient stone walls and enter a world of cobblestones, narrow alleys, and medieval buildings. It's a fun place to explore on foot.
