      You'll wind your way down through the merry hubbub of Town Hall Square to Great Guild Hall, now home to the Estonian History Museum. This medieval memento dates to the early 1400s; it has been rebuilt three times since then, and every renovation turns up new archaeological discoveries, like the ancient Roman heating system running through the floor. Here your taste buds will share in this feast for your eyes when you sample the delectable caramelized almonds, a popular local street snack.

      Tallinn makes a great time capsule not just for medieval architecture but for other eras as well, like the Kalamaja neighborhood, where quaint workers' houses are the best-preserved examples of wooden architecture in the country.

      Nowadays, however, the young, creative residents of this neighborhood are turning Kalamaja into a cultural and artistic center. You'll visit the local market and pause for cake and coffee in a local cafe in an up-and-coming bohemian village where wooden houses are turning into trendy restaurants and abandoned factories are turning into art galleries ... bringing you the best of Tallinn, old and new.

      Breaking black bread

      Estonian cuisine sometimes means more than just a warm, full belly. Black rye bread, for example, has such significance to Estonians that their version of "bon appetit" is "jätku leiba," or "may your bread last." A tradition begun in hard times demands that an Estonian who drops his bread on the floor not only eat it, but kiss it.
