“Despite also being pretty dreamy, the Estonian capital of Tallinn feels about as permanent as destinations get. The UNESCO-certified Old Town district is an astonishingly well-preserved medieval city, encircled by majestic stone walls studded with conical red-roofed towers. Its interior is dominated by massive churches that range from the stern austerity of the huge St. Olaf’s to a fantastically gaudy Eastern Orthodox cathedral, both lined by peeling antique houses, colourfully painted streets and roughly cobbled alleys. All this makes the Old Town an intoxicating setting for the fleeting fun of a music festival.”
