Nõmme, part of Tallinn!
Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, is located in Northern Europe in the north-eastern part of the Baltic Sea region. Area of Tallinn – 159,2 km² (Estonia 45 227 km²). Tallinn, the capital of the Estonian Republic is one of the oldest capital cities in Northern Europe. It is is one of the best retained medieval European towns, especially the the Old Town with its unique medieval surroundings. The unique value of Tallinn’s Old Town lies first and foremost in the well-preserved completeness of its medieval milieu and structure, which has been lost in most of the capitals of Northern Europe. Since 1997 Tallinn is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The golden era in Tallinn’s history lies in the period between the early 15th and mid 16th centuries. During that period Tallinn attained fame and a powerful role in the Baltic Sea area through its membership in the Hanseatic League. During the walk in the Old Town you can feel and touch history everywhere. The web of winding cobblestone streets and buildings from the 11th to 15th centuries has preserved nearly in its entirety. Thanks to this you can sense the atmosphere of the old days. During the past ten years our capital has developed into a very modern and open city with new tall glass and steel buildings, illuminated signs of major international companies, large shopping malls, newly renovated airport, ever growing cargo and dozens of new manufacturing and warehouse complexes. Tallinn offers much to discover for people with various interests – for those who love the arts, as well as those who are interested in nightlife, for gourmet lovers, for shoppers, for friends of nature and many others.
