Tallinn, a Medieval City Evincing Digital Modernism

Streets of Tallinn in Estonia

A port stop at Tallinn was our first shot at taking a close look at the Silicone Valley of Europe. We were sailing from Helsinki to Stockholm when we stumbled across this 12th-century ancient city. Featuring colonization records, dating back to 5000 years, Tallin stands as one of Northern Europe’s oldest capitals. This Estonian cultural, political, financial, and educational hub is the largest city in the nation. Home to several UNESCO world heritage sites, Tallinn is a well-preserved destination with a twist of digital and cultural modernism.

Tallinn, a Traditional City with a Modern Twist

Laid with cobblestone streets to reinvigorate old town charm, Tallinn is a city worth visiting for its 13th-century wall, Gothic Town Hall, and Main Square. Even though, all along, you will sense a quality of modern thoughts and techniques. We were thrilled to find out that Estonia acquired the title of an E-country long before other countries acclimatized the concept. In fact, E-voting in Estonia has been prevalent for over 13-years, making the nation one of the most advanced in the European enclave. 

Estonian Flavours in Tallinn

Beyond sightseeing, awaits the food culture of Tallin with an authentic burst of Estonian flavors. From sea oysters, caviar, mussels to other local specialties, Tallin is a wondrous gastronomy dream. In a conversation with a few Estonians, we learned that the digital city Tallinn hosts the highest number of startups in Europe. Making almost every second person, independently driven! Besides, this city of entrepreneurs is also a laying foundation for business magnets like; Skype, Tallink Group, Ericsson, Olympic Entertainment, ABB, Saint-Gobain Glass, and Norma AS. 

Rated as one of World’s top 10 digital cities, Tallinn should be your next stop in Europe. By all means, we want to return back to the digital city to discover it medieval-age assets. We would love to hear a few tips from you if, you have already been here. Until then, adieu!
