It may not compare to Australia but Estonia's outback is nothing to sniff at; in fact it's damn beautiful and we highly recommend jumping astride a steed and galloping across the countryside in style.
Kiek in de Kok
Suitably located in the historical area of Toompea this is a renowned addition to Tallinn's cultural scene. Toompea's Walt Disney appearance is deceptive however and this monument possesses some interesting weapons of war...

Kadriorg Palace
The equivalent of London's Kensington; this area is only a short drive from the centre of Tallinn however well worth it. The museum offers the only quality European art in the country, but the formal gardens and palace surroundings that provide the
