I love London and Paris just as much as the next person but sometimes I find the cities way too touristy and overwhelming! You can’t walk more than 10 feet without running into another American. Throughout my travels in Europe, I’ve come across some great cities and regions that offer similar experiences to those touristy cities…without the tourists! And most of the time, these places are significantly cheaper than the touristy destination. So go visit some of these alternative European city breaks before the secret is out and tourists start to overwhelm them!
I spent one afternoon walking around Kadriorg Park. Kadriorg Park is on the outskirts of Tallinn and home to not only a huge park but multiple palaces, monuments, and art museums. I wish I knew how much was in this park because I would have dedicated more than an afternoon to this area!
Estonia was surprisingly a very culturally-filled city! I’ll be honest, I had many misconceptions about the country, its heritage/language, and the general atmosphere. Who knew that Estonia had been occupied by so many countries?
Everyone who follows me on Twitter probably got sick of my countdown to Estonia, which started at least a month before I left! I had the most wonderful, amazing, inspiring time in Tallinn, Estonia and my photos don’t do it justice. The colors of the city were mesmerizing and absolutely breathtaking!
