Lili Travels – Estonia: 24 Hours in Tallinn
I am super excited to share this vlog of our trip to Tallinn with you! I talked about it in the August Inspiration List video, but now it’s ready, for you to enjoy it with me!
I hope you also like the tips. I love Tallinn, it’s a beautiful, medieval-styled town that will make you fall in love with it!

I’ve done another post already with several tips about the city (that’s how much we enjoy Tallinn lol as we’ve been 6 times in a year to be exact)! Moreover, I’ll probably go many other times because I love taking our friends and family that come over! =)
I mention a pancake restaurante which is a more local obe in the old town. It’s called Kompressor and seriously, people… No kidding! Their pancakes are delicious, very well served and most of them, for only € 5. Those who live in the Helsinki area, know that this is a bargain to eating well. Here the values are much more expensive and this is an advantage of Estonia. Many things are much cheaper there.
Of course it’s not everywhere. The restaurant itself we had lunch, the Von Krahli Aed was not cheap. It was more modern and sophisticated food, but yummy too! Kompressor is very local and with simpler environment! I showed a bit of it on my Instagram Stories this past weekend that we were there again with other friends haha ! Follow me on Instagram too! =)
The place we had breakfast is called Reval Cafe. It’s a quite place, with good service and good food. Not to mention that has very honest prices!
- Kiek in de Kok & Bastion Tunnels
- Danish King’s Garden
- Freedom Square
- Alexander Nevsky Cathedral
- Saint Mary Lutheran Cathedral
- Saint Olaf Church
- The Parlament of Estonia
- Maiasmokk Cafe (oldest cafe in Estônia with delicious marzipans)
- Raeapteek (one of the oldes pharmacies in Europe working in the same place)
- Sightseeing in Tallinn
To get to Tallinn, you will take a ferry. They are the same-cruising style and they go crowded. The companies that do the journey are:
- Viking Line
- Ekerö Line
- Linda Line Express (operates only between April and November and depends on weather conditions as it is a smaller boat)
The walking tours leave from the Tourist Information Centre located in the Old Town. There is more than one company that operates, but they are always free. They ask for a contribution, which you can give what the amount you wish. I really recommend doing them, as the guides usually are students or tour guides and have a lot of knowledge to share. We have had guides from Traveller and EstAdventures and both were good!
