    Wow, supercool! Talinn has been on my list for a bit :-) And I guess TWO citytrip in one makes it even more attractive!

  2. As we visited Helsinki in the end of February we also went for a daytrip to Tallinn and I loved it :) it’s such a lovely city. And I love the fact that we almost made the same picture from the “The Time we had” spot :D

    Looks like you have fun! I’ve never considered Estonia as a travelling destination prior, but you sure have got me thinking about it!

    Wow! The Titanic Exhibition looks really interesting. I have been to the Titanic Exhibition in Belfast, but it doesn’t look as interesting as this!

      I loved it, great set up and the Seaplane Harbour Museum itself was just stunning, an amazing space to hold the exhibition. I think they said that on this one, they have actual artifacts, where most travelling exhibitions only have replica’s? Not sure about it, but would make this visit extra special!

    I wanted to cross to Tallinn by ferry once (when I was in Helsinki) – that was in 2010. I’m sorry I had no time and I had to rush back to catch my flight… It’s an awesome city (Tallinn).
    As for “Titanic” – are you sure you want to hear that word when traveling by ship/boat between Tallinn and Helsinki? :P

    Prachtige foto’s! Ik wil al lang eens naar Tallinn, maar had niet verwacht dat het er zo modern en tegelijk ook zo traditioneel uitzag!

      Hi Adrian, that’s really interesting! I’ve never been to the Philippines, but it’s definitely on the list! Thanks for your comment, have a great week!

  12. Great post. Many visitor blogs to Tallinn don’t really have many insightful things to say, but you’ve done a really good job of covering some things other than the cliched.

  13. Interesting blog you did on Helsinki and Tallinn in Estonia. I didn’t realize they had a Titanic museum there. I’m sure you must have been reminded of the ocean liner’s poignant story, its own and its passengers.

    • Nienke Krook says:

      The museum was set up in a great way, where you really got to experience how life on board must have been and there was plenty of information about all the things that went wrong during this trip, most of them that could have been easily avoided unfortunately.
