As always when you have to choose between different travel destinations ask yourself what do you want and what do you like. Riga and Tallin has diffeent things to offer.

Riga is bigger and surely has more sights and things to do than Tallinn. Is it architecture (Art nouveu) or museums (Occupation museum) or wild nightlife, but also best cultural scene in Baltics - respectable opera house or organ concert of famous organ of Riga Cathedral, one of the biggest in world (6700 pipes), many restaurants etc.

But if you like escape from city and want a calm weekend, avoid crowd in narrow streets of a medieval Old Town, if you want to spend a romantic weekend with your beloved or feel a bit alone, and has not too many requirements for the program for couple days Tallinn could also be a nice choice. It is certainly a beautiful city too.
