Estonian capital in blaze of glory


Tallinn bathed in a ray of sunshine last week when it came first among 14 cities in Scandinavia and the Baltics in an international tourism survey conducted by the Scandinavian innovation centre Norden. The centre interviewed more than 5,000 tourists who had visited Copenhagen, Arhus, Malmo, Uppsala, Stockholm, Oslo, Bergen, Helsinki, Tampere, Turku, Reykjavik, Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius. As many as 63 percent of respondents cited Tallinn as the city that most fulfilled their expectations because of its cozy atmosphere, while 65.4 percent said that Tallinn was romantic. “Listen to music, walk around the Old Town, step into a café or relax in a spa – in short, enjoy,” is how one Swede put it. In terms of a romantic destination, Tallinn was followed by Vilnius and then Riga.
