According to a poll of readers in Wanderlust, a British travel magazine, the Estonian capital, Tallinn, is the second “most desirable travel destination” among European cities.
The magazine said its “wandering readers” voted “tens of thousands” for the places that captured their imagination and “ignited their wanderlust”.
The most sought-after travel destination among European cities is Dubrovnik in Croatia, followed by Tallinn, Lisbon (Portugal), Istanbul (Turkey), Seville (Spain), Ljubljana (Slovenia), Bordeaux (France), Copenhagen (Denmark), Salzburg (Austria) and Mostar. (Bosnia and Herzegovina).
According to Wanderlust’s Christina Wildman-Bori, “This is a prestigious title that is not easy for European cities to obtain.”
“It’s a difficult prize to win because the competition is very tough,” she told the press department of the Tallinn city government. “Winning this prestigious award is testament to how much Estonia continues to resonate with our discerning Wanderlust readers – something we always knew.”
Wanderlust is a UK travel magazine and brand covering edgy, cultural and special interest travel. The magazine is published in print and digital six times a year with the motto “Take the Road Less Busy”.
