Tallinn is among the destinations that will attract the interest of travellers in 2011, according to Lonely Planet.

Looking forward to some of the destinations and experiences it expects to be popular next year, the travel information provider pointed out that the Estonian city has been 'rightfully' awarded the title of European Capital of Culture 2011.

The company predicted that visitors will be drawn to landmarks such as the Alexander Nevsky cathedral and the cobbled streets of Tallinn's World Heritage-listed old town.

Another forecast from Lonely Planet is that London will become 'the place to be in 2011'.

Several events and developments will put the English capital in the spotlight, including the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, the build-up to the Olympics and the opening of the Shard, Europe's tallest building.

The historic site of Machu Picchu is traditionally popular among travellers and will become even more appealing in 2011 when it marks the anniversary of its rediscovery in the 15th century, according to Lonely Planet.
