What to see in Tallinn

by Gaelfin

Hubby and myself are on a cruise that stops off in Tallinn in May this year. Does anyone know how far it is from where the ships dock to the centre of Tallinn. The trips are very pricey so we're thinking of "doing it ourself". What sights are a "must see".

Try the boards over on cruisecritic.com, there's a wealth of information on how to visit ports independent of the cruise line. I remember walking to the old town from the ship but that there was also cruise line provided shuttle service for those not up to the walk. I don't think there's any excursion that the cruise line would provide that you couldn't do on your own.

It is not a particularly long walk from Tallinn port to the old town, but much depends on how much time you have available.

There are 'hop-on, hop-off' buses, which might be a cheaper option for you. None of them go right into the old town (some of which is pedestrianised, all of which has narrow streets).

The old town itself is the 'must-see'.Witihin it, there are various churches, museums etc.and the towers...but, to be honest, you will probably enjoy spending your time just wandering the cobbled streets and loooking at the architecture.The VT Tallinn pages are full of info and tips written by VT locals and visitors:use the searchbox top right of this page to find them.

If you have time, I recommend a visit to the Estionan Ethnographic Museum and/or to Kadriorg (which was built by Peter the Great for his wife Catherine). My Tallinn pages havephotos, info and details on the city, the museum and Kadriorg.

Ship dock is not so far from Old town of Tallinn, about 10 min walk. so it is the bet place to visit. You just must see old center of Tallinn. There will will find a lot of interesting. But if you have more time there is every time something interesting.

you can easily do it yourself and the old town isn't very big anyway (and yes, if you take the right exit then you'll be in the old town in around 10-15 mins by foot). The old town consists of the lower and upper town (awesome views over the city from up there) and if you have a city map you won't miss anything.

Travel Tips for Tallinn

Tourist Info

by Stevieboy

Be sure to visit the new Tourist Information Center at the corner of Kullassepa and Niguliste. Here you can get a free map and (for a soft price) several different interesting booklets and brochures.

Particularly nice are the little booklets called "curiosity walks in Tallinn". There's a description of walks in Kadriorg park, along the different churches, in the lower town and on and around Toompea. They cost 25 krooni a piece, which is cheap if you take into account the excellent pictures you get into the bargain (better than my blurry 'frozen fingers too vain to wear my cap' ones :).

Certainly a big improvement compared to the old office on Town Hall Square!

Lots of construction

by BillNJ

During my visit to Tallinn, there was a lot of construction in both the Old Town and other parts of the city. Now that Estonia has escaped from Communism, they have a lot of catching up to do with their Northern European neighbors!

Song Festival days

by Raimix

Song Festival in Baltic States is quite unique and inscribed into Unesco World heritage list. The festival takes place in city centers and concert hall every 4 or 5 years. It happened, that I was walking in Tallinn centre just the day when all parade of people were going to main concert hall. All were with national costumes from different regions of Estonia, singing songs or just loudly screaming something in Estonian, some were keeping Estonian flags. There were much people around, greeting them and going together to main concert of Festival. There is a few different parts of festival - one is day of songs, another - day of dances.

A warm raincoat and umbrella in October

by BillNJ

Walking shoes to navigate the cobblestone roads. Also, in mid October when I visited, the temperature ranged from the high 20s to the high 40s. It also rained a lot -- so I am sure glad that I brought a warm raincoat and an umbrella!

The hidden letter

by King_Golo

If you pay a lot of attention to the ground of Raekoja Plats (well, why not???), you might find some bricks which look like the letter "L". There is an interesting story behind this letter: Centuries ago, a preacher raped a virgin girl in Tallinn. Shocked about what he had done, he turned himself in to the authorities and was sentenced to death. His wish was to be executed on Raekoja Plats to show everyone what incredible misdeed he had committed. A cross marked this place, but nowadays only an "L" is left...
Before you start searching for too long, I give you a small hint: Look in front of Raekoja Apteek!
