Looking for culture? Well you've come to the right place! Tallinn may be a tiny fraction of the size of London, Paris, Moscow and Berlin (only 430,000 people to be precise!), but it still boasts a surprisingly beefy cultural programme for tourists and locals alike. From splendid medieval landmarks and fascinating museums to cutting-edge theatre and modern film festivals, you are guaranteed to find something you like in Tallinn. The city even has its very own Opera House for God's sake - eat your heart out Sydney!
