I like that there’s an esoteric shop of a fortune teller right next to a design store. From a fine dining restaurant I can continue to a close by Russian disco. At the market place there is a sweet old Russian lady selling her home garden goodies and she even has come up with a recycle system for the bottles she sells apple juice in. I like how cozy and compact Tallinn is – and how different adventures await just around the corner.

Bored of Tallinn already? Estonia is such a small country that most places can be visited during a day trip. We warmly recommend you to take a little adventure and get to know Estonia outside of Tallinn. People living in other places in Estonia mock Tallinn people for constantly running around. Indeed, life outside of Tallinn is much more relaxed.
Day trips can be made by train, bus or affordable rental car.
