Description

This tour includes:
- Round trip transportation from the cruise ship pier
- Exploration of the St. Nicholas Church-Museum in Old Tallinn
- Visit to the KUMU Art Museum in modern Tallinn
- Admissions not included
- A great 1/2 day of discovery!

Our first stop will be in Lower Town, where we'll walk to St. Nicholas' Church-Museum. The exposition of ecclesiastical art from the Medieval and Early Modern periods presented here is the most significant and extensive collection of church art in Estonia.

The Gothic architecture of the church lends itself to be a showcase for the city's treasures. Pieces dating from the 13th century are housed here, including its most famous work, the eerie Dance Macabre by Berndt Notke from the 15th century. Other artifacts include baroque chandeliers, 15th century altars, and the silver chamber.

After exploring this fascinating museum, we'll depart and travel outside the ancient walls to the new KUMU, a futuristic building which is in total contrast to our first stop. This museum is home to over 60,000 works by Estonians, as well as foreign artists. It was opened in 2006 and contains the largest art collection in the Baltic.

The setting alone is lovely and unusual for Tallinn, as you will see during your ride.

Your guide will have an expertise in the KUMU Museum, as well as the St. Nicholas.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
