Estonian design: Interior design shops in Tallin

If you visit Helsinki, it is worth to make a trip to Tallin and Stockholm too. Finnish people usually stop in the old town of Tallin, go to a restaurant, or a cafe, walk a bit and get back to the ferry. 

The furthest I went so far from the harbor was the Kadriorg Palace, which was built for Catherine I of Russia by Peter the Great. It is a Petrine Baroque Palace, not as grandiose as the Summer Palace in St. Petersburg, but it still gives a good insight to Russian architecture.

There are two things I really would like to do next time in Tallin: stay over for a night in a nice wellness hotel and the get to know Estonian interior design more. 

I am sure that I will find a hotel easily, for the design-exploring tour I made a list now after reading couple of articles.

+ on the map you will find also info about the opening hours and the short description of the stores
