Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, is located on the southern coast of the Gulf of Finland and is home to one of the best-preserved medieval cities in Europe, which is recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city is the political, financial, cultural and educational centre of Estonia and proved to be an irresistible attraction for the Tall Ships Fleet in 2017 when over 44 ships chose to visit the city during the Cruise-in-Company leg of the event.


For four days, the grand maritime festival will offer a unique opportunity to discover the excitement and cultural diversity of the city. Tallinn is a historic maritime city, and the sea laid the foundation for its importance as a Hanseatic city and has shaped the lifestyles of its residents over centuries. Beautiful beaches, a city facing the sea, a harbour with a special atmosphere, cafes, galleries, and maritime museums – all of this fits along the city’s 46-kilometre coastline.
