Tallinn among ‘world’s most beautiful’ cities ({{commentsTotal}})

UK's daily The Telegraph has included Estonian capital among the world's most beautiful cities.

"For anyone jaded by tacky German-style Christmas markets in Britain, the capital of Estonia will restore faith in the festive marketing of mulled wine and undefinable wooden decorations. The city has the festive season down to an authentic and tasteful tee, but its medieval streets – forming one of Europe’s best preserved old towns – and modern cafes and eclectic collection of museums and galleries are worth visiting at any time of the year. Difficult to believe that just 25 years ago it was clad in Soviet gloom," The Telegraph said.

Other cities in the list include Florence in Italy, Paris in France, Jerusalem in Israel, Cambridge in England, Cape Town in South Africa, Sydney in Australia, Fes in Morocco, San Francisco in the US, Edinburgh in Scotland, Prague in Czech Republic, Kyoto in Japan, and others.

The Telegraph is a quality daily, published in London since 1855.
