Your tour begins with a scenic drive through the cultural heart of Tallinn. View the Tall Herman Tower (from the outside), one of the three remaining towers of the Knights of the Sword Castle. From the base of the nearby cannon tower, enjoy a wonderful view of the churches and towers of Tallinn's Upper Town.
Continue on through Kadriorg Park, a true highlight with its charming Baroque ensemble that was designed as a summer residence for Peter the Great. Visit the Song Festival Ground, a natural amphitheater that hosts Estonia's national song festivals. Next, drive through a beautiful residential area drowned in greenery to the popular Pirita beach. From here it's on to the lovely St. Birgit's Convent, an outstanding monument of the 15th- century limestone architecture.
As you make your way back to the pier, you'll drive past the summer residence of count Orlov and the delightful statue of Russalka, Estonia's mermaid, on the sea coast.
