The Tallinn Christmas Market has been voted as one of the best in the world and its easy to see why. What could be more spectacular than a beautiful mediaeval city covered in snow and floodlit by festive lights? It's like a fairytale, a winter wonderland. From now until the 10th January 2015 Tallinn's Town Hall Square (Raekoja plats) will be a hive of activity, crammed with daily events, concerts and the scent of traditional food and mulled wine permeating the air. Every Sunday an Advent candle will be lit.
The Christmas Market sells a wide range of goods including hats, scarves, gloves, Christmas decorations, gingerbread and other handicrafts made from leather, metal and wood. There is so much to explore and each year the market gets better and better.
If you are looking for a unique gift for Christmas this year - go to Tallinn!
I can't wait to go! I'll be there in a few weeks!
