City profile

Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, is located in  north-eastern part of the Baltic Sea region and has a population of 410 050. Capital of culture 2011.

The climate in Tallinn is characterized by a very cold winter, a cool spring with little precipitation, a moderately warm summer and a long and rainy autumn. However, some summers have weeks at a stretch of temperatures around +30C, and a warm, sunny summer can keep autumn at bay until mid-October. Estonian's official language is Estonian. Russian, Finnish, English and German are also understood and widely spoken.

Like most cities with an eight-hundred-year-old past, Tallinn is a patchwork of historic areas. The city's pride and joy is without a doubt its Medieval Old Town, but equally enchanting is the Kadriorg district. The Estonian Open Air Museum, in Rocca al Mare, west of the city, preserves aspects of Estonian rural culture and architecture. While its rich heritage is plain to see throughout.

Tallinn has been listed among the top 10 digital cities in the world.
