Tallinn is the capital and largest city of Estonia, with around 400 000 inhabitants. Situated on the shore of the Gulf of Finland, it is 80 km (50 miles) south of Helsinki and 300 km (200 miles) west of Saint Petersburg. The oldest surviving structures in Tallinn date from the 13th Century. Between the 14th and 16th centuries the city was a major trading hub of the Hanseatic League. Tallinn’s Old Town is one of the best-preserved medieval cities in Northern Europe and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Other notable sites include the 18th century Kadriorg palace and park and the late 19th century neighbourhood of Kalamaja, with its wooden dwellings and recently re-converted industrial sites.
