Tallinn on Victory Day

by yvgr

Hello,

We will arrive in Tallinn on 23/6, which is a holiday (Victory Day). We guess most attractions and restaurants are closed. If you live in Tallinn or have been to Tallinn on this day, what do you recommend us to see on this day?

Re: Tallinn on Victory Day

by lemonparty

Victory Day is also known as Jaanilaupäev ("the day before Midsummer") before Jaanipäev (Midsummer), and happens to the biggest holiday of the year next to Christmas. Many Estonians prefer to celebrate with their families at summer houses, but in the evening there are parties, concerts etc, near bonfires, in literally every populated area of the country. Looks like the biggest public bonfire (with concert) in Tallinn is at the Rocca al Mare Open Air Museum starting at 19:00. It's a well known attraction tourists so getting there should be easy. You should check it out - it's really a great time of year to visit Estonia.

PS: grab some mosquito repellant; due to extremely snowy winter this year there's an abnormal amount of mosquitoes, which at outdoors/in the evening can make a snack of you.

Travel Tips for Tallinn

A virtual map

by gubbi1

Before coming to Tallinn I recommend to have a look at the following tourist webpage. It includes a virtual map with a lot of information. I think it is really well designed and makes a lot of fun...
---> Virtual Map of Tallinn Walking through the Old Town.

Decorated old town doors

by Raimix

The thing, that I have seen almost from first moment when I entered Tallinn's old town was nicely decorated and colorful doors. Almost in every street it is possible to see such doors with different wooden carvings and intensive colors. It could be possible to make a photo gallery just of old town doors.

Walking in Old Town

by bugulma

Dating back as far as the 13th century, the old section of Tallinn is what keeps most visitors occupied during their stay. The winding, cobbled streets of the medieval capital take you past half-hidden lanes, courtyards, spired churches and old, merchant houses. For centuries, what's now the Old Town has been divided into two distinct parts: Toompea Hill, which was home to the gentry that lorded over the countryside, and Lower Town, which was a separate political entity with rights as an autonomous town.

Is this the dullest flag in the world?

by CatherineReichardt

I know that run the risk of provoking the ire of all patriotic Estonians, but despite its noble history and powerful symbolism, I think that the Estonian flag is a strong contender for the dullest flag in the world.
What is puzzling is that the flag's origins and symbolism are fascinating, and World Flags 101 offers the following excellent explanation: "The colors of the national flag represent Estonia's history, nature and folk costumes. The blue stripe represents faith, loyalty and devotion as well as the sky, sea, and lakes. The black symbolizes the dark past and suffering of the Estonian people as well as the traditional black jacket of the Estonian peasant. The white represents striving towards enlightenment and virtue, hope and freedom. White also symbolizes the color of birch bark and snow, and Estonian summer nights illuminated by the midnight sun."
Unlike other national flags that have a history going back centuries, the Estonian flag is fairly recent, only having been designed in the 1880s. It was predictably banned under Soviet rule, and there are plenty of tales of people ingeniously keeping the flag in three separate bits which were stored in different places (for example, the white section might have been used as a tablecloth) - amusing in hindsight, but potentially life-threatening if you were caught out.
There are plenty of flags which comprise three horizontal stripes: however, most feature a pleasing colour contrast. By contrast, I feel that the black stripe dulls the vivacity of the cornflower blue and even manages to blunt the impact of the bright white, especially as the flag ages and the colours fade.
My apologies to all the Estonians I have offended, but I had to find one thing that I didn't like about your wonderful country!
