Estonia Cruise Holidays

The port city of Tallinn, melds the medieval and the modern almost undetected, from terracotta church spires to glass buildings reflecting the city’s green spaces. There’s no better time for a cruise to Estonia.

Estonia Cruise Holiday Highlights

Estonian cuisine is a new star on the scene, with chefs in Tallinn combining traditional dishes with modern flavours and techniques. Rye bread is a staple, so much so you'll find it in their drinks. Whilst in Estonia's cruise port; Tallinn, try a glass of kvass - a traditional fermented drink made from the black bread. It's non-alcoholic and tastes a little like root beer; a mix of beer and fizzy drink.  

Tallinn, Estonia

Tallinn has fully embraced urban and technological development, its real charm is in the Old Town, one of the most enchanting walled settlements you’ll find. Outside of the Old Town, Tallinn possesses a thriving business district, a tantalising restaurant scene and world-class visitor attractions. An UNESCO World Heritage Centre and major Hanseatic centre, Tallinn’s Old Town is a fairy-tale mix of Gothic spires, cobbled alleyways and pastel-painted merchants’ houses.

Explore Estonia on a Cruise Holiday

Over the centuries Estonia has been a battleground for many European countries, all jostling for supremacy, but today Tallinn is a peaceful yet vibrant modern capital. Evidence of its colourful and varied past abounds, from the Danish 13th-century St Mary’s Cathedral and the Danish King’s Garden – the legendary birthplace of the Danish flag – to the Russian Orthodox Alexander Nevsky Cathedral and the stark 1970s Soviet TV tower, the Teletorn. Scandinavian, Nordic and German influences are also evident in Estonian cuisine – sample the local delicacy of kiluvõileib, a sprat sandwich made with traditional black bread, washed down with a local craft beer.
