This market is relatively new – founded in 1991, the article says.
"Tallinn Christmas Market has made a name for itself in Europe as one of the most charming and romantic festivals on the continent. Held in the Estonian capital's beautifully medieval Town Hall Square, its 200,000 visitors a year can't be lying," noted Thorin Engeseth, Portland Europe Travel Examiner, in a review of the best Christmas markets, reports LETA.
The Christmas market in Tallinn's Old Town has a zoo as well, marks the Examiner.
The Tallinn-based market was included in the list along with Nuremberg, Germany, known as the Christkindlesmarkt, Vienna, Austria, for its lively atmosphere and spectacular market, Copenhagen, Denmark, which was titled "unique on this list" due to multiple Christmas markets in different parts of the city, as well as Prague, Czech Republic, for variety of goods on the counter and lots of local specialities.
