Port information

Tallinn (c) Port of Tallinn


Estonia is situated in Northern Europe, on the coast of the Baltic Sea, neighbouring Finland, Sweden, Latvia and Russia. Estonia is known above all for its beautiful capital of Tallinn. It’s no use hiding the fact: Tallinn is Northern Europe’s oldest capital city.

Tallinn’s marvellous Old Town is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list. The unique value of Tallinn’s Old Town lies first and foremost in the wellpreserved completeness of the medieval milieu and structure, something that has been lost in most other northern capitals. The web of winding cobblestone streets and properties, which date from the 11th to 15th centuries, are preserved nearly in its entirety.

All the most important state and church buildings from the Middle Ages have been preserved in their basic original form, as well as many citizens’ and merchants’ residences, along with barns and warehouses from the medieval period.
