6# Tallinn, Estonia. A member of the EU, Estonia is one of the most progressive former soviet states. It's culture is a blend of the Russian Soviet Union and the Norse countries that lie above it such as Finland. Parts of the city resemble a Tolkein-like fantasy scape, which light up in the snow like a Christmas Town. The mindset of the capital is known as being very European in it's feel. Although not highly-populated, Tallinn has a vibrant night-life and many clubs.
