Your tour starts from the cruise port with a drive to the upper section of the best-preserved medieval town in Northern Europe. Within these fortified walls you will be stepping back in time and travelling on foot to explore the unique treasures within. You will see our famous Dome Church which took over 2 centuries to complete and the opulent Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. There are the 15th century gothic Town Hall in the Town Hall Square and the oldest continuously functioning pharmacy in the world, just to name a few. Your guide will reveal the rich colourful history and legends associated with each of these treasures. Before leaving the Old Town, we will delight in stopping at a charming old town restaurant for traditional local soup. You will also have some free time to do some shopping or just relax.
After saying farewell to the Old Town, the sightseeing tour continues on to Kadriorg park with it’s majestic baroque woodland, ascending rose gardens and a swan pond. Kadriorg is home to the beautiful Kadriorg Palace which was built as a summer residence for the Russian Empress, Catharine the 1st. Also located in the park is the Estonian Presidential Palace and the architecturally stunning KUMU Art Museum. You may have heard that Estonia is a singing nation and since 1869 massive song festivals have been held to echo the spirit of this nation. We will make a stop at the specially constructed Song Festival Grounds where mass choirs of over 25,000 singing voices have sung in the past and will continue to do so for generations to come.
The tour continues with a drive along beautiful Pirita seaside. Then, on to the Olympic Yacht Center, built to host the 1980 Olympic sailing events. Nearby lies the popular Pirita beach and the romantic ruins of St. Bridget’s Convent.
Now that you have been saturated with Estonian culture and coffee, we will get you safely back to your cruise ship.
