Tallinn and Surroundings

Tallinn is the capital city of Estonia and the 2023 Green Capital of Europe. It is located in the North of Estonia and borders the Baltic Sea.

The city is a perfect mix between old and new. Tallinn’s Old Town is one of the best-preserved Hanseatic centers in the world and is full of medieval streets and architecture.

Only a couple of steps away there is the city’s business center where you will find modern towers, trendy neighborhoods, and large shopping centers.

The coast close to Tallinn is a wonderful mix of wild nature, rustic seaside villages, and islands that are only a day’s trip away.

Best Things to Do in Tallinn

1. Kadriorg Palace and park

Kadriorg Palace was built in the 18th century by Tsar Peter the Great. It is surrounded by a park full of fountains and historical wooden houses.

It is home to the KUMU Art Museum of Estonia, the Kadriorg Art Museum, and the Adamson-Eric Museum.

You will find elegant restaurants, charming cafes, and historical wooden houses in the neighborhood surrounding the park and palace.

2. Old Town

Tallinn was once part of the Hanseatic cities and was home to wealthy merchants from Germany, Denmark, and beyond.

The 13th-century city plan developed by these merchants is still exceptionally intact, therefore the Old Centre is inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Walking through the cobblestone streets, you will find medieval churches, merchant houses, barns, and warehouses.

3. Rocca al mare

The Rocca al Mare district lies on the West of Tallinn, along the coast of the Kopli Bay. In this area, you can find the largest shopping center in Estonia.

However, you can also walk along the Bay of Kopli and enjoy the Kakumäe beach and the Harku beach by the lake.

4. Kalamaja and Telliskivi

Kalamaja is a fast-developing area of Tallinn, full of creatives and young people who have transformed the former industrial district into an area full of cafes, restaurants, vintage shops, and galleries.

Typical for this area are the colorful wooden houses and old industrial infrastructure. Tellivski Creative City is a beautiful example of an old industrial complex that has been given a new purpose and is worth a visit.

There is also the Balti Jaama Market, a year-round food market where you can discover all types of cuisines.

5. Estonian open-air museum

The Estonian Open Air Museum is a huge park where you can experience the life and society of Estonia in the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries.

The park has farmhouses, a church, a school, shops, and fishing sheds along the sea. There is also a shop where you can buy traditional handicrafts and try traditional Estonian food.

6. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral

The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral is an Eastern Orthodox cathedral built at the end of the 19th century when Estonia was still part of the former Russian Empire. This extraordinary cathedral is richly decorated both inside and out and is definitely worth a visit.

7. Tallinn TV tower

Tallinn TV Tower was built in 1980 for the Summer Olympics in Moscow, and on 20 August 1991, it became one of the most important symbols of the restoration of Estonian independence, when people from all over Estonia came to defend the tower.

At the tower, there is a permanent exhibition about the tower’s history, Dolores Hoffmann’s glass, periscopic screens, and a virtual flight around the TV Tower. From the Tower, you also have an extraordinary view of the city.

8. Pirita River and Viimsi

Pirit’s seaside area is the place to be for an adventurous Sunday trip and some sunbathing. You can rent a paddle boat or a canoe, cycle along the promenade, or walk in the forests.

There are also the ruins of the Pirita Convent from the 15th century, where in August the Birgitta Festival takes place.

Viimsi is a peninsula 15 minutes away from the city and is known as the Peninsula of Contrasts. It hosts a range of cultural events like festivals, food markets, and theatres.

Besides that, you will find rustic fishermen’s houses next to modern homes and romantic islands from where you can enjoy the lights of the city.

The most magical point of Viimsi is a spot where the sun rises from the sea and sets in the sea.

9. Museum and Visitor Centre of Fat Margaret, Estonian Maritime Museum

Listed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List, the complex provides an overview of maritime trade, agencies, and navigation in the Middle Ages, as well as in the era of sailing, steam, and motor ships. There is a total of 1,000 m² of exhibition space.

The star exhibit is the 700-year-old Koge wreck found in Kadriorg in 2015. There are about 70 ship models out of which 17 have been created especially for the exhibition, nearly 700 items, and 50 digital and hands-on solutions.
