Tallinn hosted the Tall Ships Races for the first time in 1992 and will host the fleet for the second time in 2024. We can’t wait to visit the city as it welcomes the Tall Ships to its coastline.
The festivities take place across four days from 11 – 14 July, the Tall Ships will then sail out in a spectacular parade of sail before the start of Race Two where they will head for Mariehamn, Åland Islands.
The city, which is located on the southern coast of Finnish Bay, has previously been the European Capital of Culture in 2011 and is recognised as a Unesco World Heritage site as one of the most well preserved medieval cities in Europe.
The capital of Estonia has lots to offer for visitors with plenty of facilities, including restaurants and museums within close proximity of the harbour areas.
