Everything is easy here because bureaucracy is nonexistent; most things are done electronically. You can walk around the whole city in under an hour and the Old Town is beautiful. Other than that, it is hard to fly anywhere in the worlds since there are only a few direct flights.

Tallinn is a beautiful city with a great wealth of history and culture. Despite being the capital of Estonia, it is quite small and most places worth visiting can be reached on foot. For residents of Tallinn, however, public transport is free of charge. My favourite part of the city is the ‘Old Town’ with its pretty cobbled streets.

Someone moving to Tallinn should be prepared to meet countless tourists from all around the world and happy locals who are excited to help you with anything. It is important to know learning the basics of the main language is important to show respect, but you can manage with English when necessary. When moving it is crucial to learn public transportation as it is free for people in the city and should be taken advantage of.

Flats in the areas of the city built during the Soviet regime are cheap and quick to come by. However, living there usually involves a 30-minute commute to work.
