Being a private tour, it’s built around your interests. You will also get a video clip of your day as a thanks for visiting Estonia. You’ll have the freedom to decide on every part of your journey or just relax and enjoy one of the attractions along the way.<br><br>We are going to explore Western-Estonia today during one of these day trips from Tallinn. The main draws for western Estonia are nature, the Paldiski area, Noarootsi Peninsula and the resort town of Haapsalu boasting some cute wooden architecture and oodles of summer concerts and outdoor terraces.<br><br>There are many interesting cultural and nature-related sites to stop along the route. Like the calm and friendly small town of Haapsalu, Noarootsi peninsula with untouched nature and Scandinavian feel, limestone cliffs in Paldiski and a beautiful waterfall near Tallinn.

Great attraction with a long history. We liked it. One can only imagine how nice it was here during the tsar's time.

Wow. We were amazed about this special little place stuck in time. It was built at the beginning of the 20th century and even though it is out of service conserves all its charm. We did not expected such a beauty hidden by the sea.

It is a very grand train station, built in 1904 and it has been beautifully restored. Entrance to the station is free. You can see the waiting rooms, the 216m long covered platform and some old steam engines on the tracks behind the station. There is also a museum, entrance is 4 €. The museum is divided in 2 parts. On the left is about telecommunications and on the right about the history of the railways in Estonia. This part I found the most interesting, especially all the stuff from the belle epoque era. But what a pity you can't take here a train anymore.

The bus stopped right next to the train station which is now a museum and a good place to start exploring Haapsalu. The building itself is rather grand and the platform is 216 m long. The Russian Czars used to come here as it was a summer resort town. Part of the station building has an imperial pavilion. The station was used from 1904 to 1995 and is now a museum. Some old railway stock can be seen on the tracks and there is a small entrance fee but i was never charged.

If you happen to be in Haapsalu, a quick visit brings you back to the very early 1900s and a magnificent building in a most unexpected location.
