From Tallinn, why not take a day trip to the western shore of Estonia? At Paldiski on the Pakri Peninsula, you can visit what was once a highly restricted military base. Now abandoned, you can explore the enormous 'Pentagon' complex, where the Soviet Union used to house its naval submarines.

Discover Tallinn, one of Europe's smallest capital cities, where the red roofs of the medieval city and maze of cobbled streets merge seamlessly with designer malls and gleaming skyscrapers, all observed imperiously by the hilltop Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. Step back to the Soviet era at the Occupation Museum or to the reign of Peter the Great at his opulent, Baroque summer palace, Kadriorg Park. Pass the time people-watching from a table in the Old Town Square and indulge your taste buds in a range of international restaurants. Hit the high note at the Estonian National Opera or mingle with the hip crowd in any number of bars and clubs.

The medieval capital of Tallinn sits proudly on the Baltic coast, 30 miles from Helsinki. It is probably the most modern of the Baltic capitals, awash with chic cafés, gourmet restaurants and trendy bars. At the heart of this modernity is Tallinn's ancient city centre, an enchanting 13th-century muddle of church spires and red slate roofs connected by a maze of cobbled streets. Admire them leisurely from a café in Town Hall Square.

Regent Recommends

Taking the local bus to Rocca Al Mare, which means cliff beside the sea. Inspect farmhouses, churches and even windmills brought together from all over Estonia. Do not leave before enjoying the local pea soup followed by spicy mashed potatoes.

There is plenty to keep visitors occupied, from visiting Tallinn's many museums and churches to flexing your credit cards in the sparkling new designer shops of the centre. Any walking tour should include the 14th-century Gothic Town Hall, the pink Parliament Building, Nevsky Cathedral and the dramatic videos shown at the Tallinn City Museum.
