One of the most popular attractions in Tallinn is the Kohtu Viewplatform. It offers the best view of the city.
I was lucky to visit the platform on two occasions during my stay in Tallinn. Both experiences were like chalk and cheese.
My first visit took place on Saturday afternoon which happened to be when the platform was at it most busiest. It was difficult to be able to get a decent spot to be able to take photographs. To be honest I was in fear of dropping my camera over the edge.
My next visit took place on Sunday evening. It was my final full day in Tallinn and I wanted to soak up the atmosphere of the city for one last time. Here I found the platform to be much quieter. There was room to move around and to enjoy the stunning of the city. It was worth making a second visit.
The Kohtu Viewplatform is one of the most touristy area of Tallinn. As you get nearer the platform you start to see all the souvenir shops which are aimed at the coach parties that visit every day during the summer.
However the biggest I can give you is to avoid the Kohtu Viewplatform from between 1-5 pm. You miss the coach parties and avoid getting into a scrum to take the best photos.
The Kohtu Viewplatform is a must see on any visit to Tallinn. With good planning you can get to enjoy the great views of the city. If the locals can avoid the crowds so can you.
I leave you with another view from Kohtu Viewplatform.
Until the next post stay safe, stay healthy and keep smiling.
