Everybody has a child in them who longs for fairy tales, ghost stories and thrilling legends. One of the dearest and most charming places for me is my hometown Tallinn and its romantic medieval city-center. Here almost every house or corner has a legend or more. On your journey through the city you`ll definitely meet water-goblins, the city`s guardian Old Thomas, Stout Margaret and even devil himself.

After a long hunt for ghosts it`s time to have a break in one of the cozy cafeterias hidden in the depths of an old dwelling that bewitch you with the fragrance of spices and rough limestone walls. The special favourites of mine, where I love to hide for an hour or two are the Kehrwieder Cafes, sprinkled around the city center. As the moto of the cafeterias say – it is one family, different personalities. And honestly all of them are worth visiting.

If you are hungry for something extraordinary, one of the spots you should definitely peep into is Restaurant Olde Hansa. Entering the old storage house, where the honorable restaurant is located, you`ll have a feeling as you had just travelled about 500 hundred years back. Everything you see has flawless medieval essence – atmosphere, costumes, interior, music and of course food and drinks! Speaking about drinks you need to try the house beer, wether with honey, cinnamon or herbs. But still, be careful, the liquids might be very crafty effect! One of the special features of the restaurant, that amazes me everytime I go there, is that the every member of the crew is chosen very carefully. The ones interested in the post has to pass the language, history tests and I suppose even personality tests. No matter what you ask about you`ll definitely get a very intelligent and refined answer.

The best time to visit Tallinn is in summer, though also other seasons are charming, but quite cold. I must warn you that the summertime is the busiest touristic season, so my personal recommendation would be that spend your day on one of the multiple beaches or in a cool park reading your favorite book, but in the evening find a nice place for chilling in the city center or have a romantic walk in the moon-light and climb on top of the historic town-wall.
