For a taste of Medieval Europe, head to Tallinn.
Estonia's capital retains so much of its Medieval history - with its cobbled streets and centuries-old buildings - that it's difficult to believe it's also the capital of one of the most digitally advanced countries in the world.
To help you explore Tallinn, we've picked out our three favorite hotels in the city.
The Three Sisters Hotel
For a traditional perspective on the Estonian capital, look no further than the Three Sisters Hotel.
Opened in 2003, the hotel sits inside three buildings that were built in 1362 and acted as merchant houses at the end of Pikk Street, Tallinn's main thoroughfare in Medieval times.
The hotel owners even claim to have a record of every occupant of the buildings since 1362.
Every one of the hotel's 23 rooms is slightly different, so it's a truly unique stay.
Hotel St. Petersbourg
Hotel St Petersbourg is, like the Three Sisters Hotel, right in the center of the city.
The main draw here is the hotel's two excellent restaurants: one offering modern fare, the other traditional Estonian dishes.
The latter, called the Golden Piglet Inn ('Kuldse Notsu Kõrts' in the local lingo), is worth visiting on any trip to Tallinn. Staying right above it is even better!
The von Stackelberg Hotel
Tallinn's home for spa lovers. The majestic von Stackelberg Hotel has a Finnish sauna, a steam sauna, and a Japanese style Jacuzzi; hotel guests can book a range of massages and treatments.
The von Sackelberg Hotel, like the Three Sisters Hotel, has a long history: it was built in 1874, for the Baron von Stackelberg.
These days, you'll find relaxed, blissed out guests rather than barons. Probably an improvement.
