Tallinn’s numerous Christmas markets are perfect spots for finding beautiful and original Christmas present for friends and loved ones. We listed the best of them.
Christmas market in the Town Hall Square (Raekoja plats) in the Old Town is open in daily 10-19 in December. Booths are selling local handicrafts and small bites. Hot drinks can be bought until 22:00. Cultural program is offered on Fridays ad Saturdays 17-19 and on Sundays 12-14.
Theater people are selling their own handicrafts and have invited selected local artisans to join them. Theater’s café offers delicacies made by the theater staff.
