Total: £109.03,€253.73 – This was quite a luxurious holiday by my standards. Although I was staying in a hostel, I ate out for all meals, and went to a lot of coffee shops in addition. I saved quite a lot of money with the Tallinn Card, but there were quite a few attractions on the list which I went to because they were included, and wouldn’t have bothered going to if I had to pay extra. On the other hand, without the card I would have probably missed out on some of the attractions I enjoyed the most, such as the TV Tower, St. Bridget’s convent ruins and the open air museum, just because they were a bit out of the way.
