Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, is definitely one of the most remarkable cities in the Baltic Sea Region because of its historic riches and future potential, located on the coast of Gulf of Finland. Tallinn is one of the best-retained medieval towns in Europe, with its web of winding cobblestone streets, developed in the 11-15th centuries, preserved in its entirety. The Old Town of Tallinn has been inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List.
