We will not only admire from the viewpoint, but also pay a closer visit to the exquisite lower old town. Through the hidden courtyards, magnificent Town Hall Square and inviting historic details we will find the unique old worldly atmosphere, that defines the heart of old town so well.

As a singing nation, no tour would be complete without a photo stop at the Song Festival Grounds casting a light to the essence of Estonia and it´s folkloric traditions. On the way back to town we will also enjoy a visit to the regal Kadriorg Park & Palace ensemble, once a residence of the Russian Czar Peter the Great.
