Warm seawater, curative mud and fresh air have made Haapsalu famous for centuries. Only 63 miles away from the capital, Haapsalu has always been a beloved summer resort in Estonia. Even the Russian czars used to take the occasional mud cure here.
In Haapsalu, enjoy a scenic drive along an inlet to capture a sense of how idyllic and peaceful Haapsalu is for summer guests. Relax over lunch at a local restaurant; then, walk along the Promenade admiring the sights until you reach the Bishop's Castle. The Dome Church of the castle has outstanding acoustics and is often used for concerts. Its baptismal chapel is famous for the White Lady ghost that appears at the window of the chapel. You won't see her today -- she appears only on full moon nights in August.
You will have some time for shopping before you return to Tallinn.
Visit the Upper Town of Old Tallinn. See Dome Hill -- site of the Parliament of Estonia, Tall Herman Tower, the Russian Orthodox Church of St Alexander Nevsky, and the Lutheran Dome Church. A walk through the narrow cobblestone lanes will take you to a scenic viewpoint for a magnificent view of the Lower Town with its red rooftops, slender church steeples and beautiful outlook to the sea.
Re-board your coach for the short drive back to the port.
There are steps and gravel paths at the Bishop's Castle, and cobblestone streets in the Upper Town. Tour is available only on select sailings.
