by croatia2006

We are coming to Tallinn with two boys under 2 years.

Could You suggest restaurants

If You know nice shops to buy clothes for children, please suggest them too ;)

Re: Child-friendly restaurant in Tallinn?

I am not expert of those "children" issues anymore but there are few nice restaurants around the city centre where surely you can enjoy your time with the young boys.
I would avoid the McDonald's and Hesburger, they are crowded & dirty and you can have them at home. Same as about Amarillo or whatever Finnish restaurants they have there. Also the tourist place as Olde Hansa etc are crowded and not always very comfortable with young kids, maybe Papersack in the old city can be a good choice if it is not crowded, at list it wasn't the last time when I was there last winter, they have more space around the tables and only few stairs to get in but I am not sure about the children chairs.
The Viru Ostukeskus can be a good place to eat and do shopping easy with the family, they have few restaurants and cafe's there.
The old city market just across from there in the entry to the old city can be a good place to buy some woollen and other children clothing, barging should be used when buying few items ;-)

Gili S is exactly right about everything except that this year is an exception. Probably because of the economy, the tourist hotspots he mentioned have recently been absolutly dead: Olde Hansa, Balthazar,Peppersack,Clazz etc.. So unless you go on a weekend night, crowds probably will not be a problem this winter.

Outside of Old town is pretty much the same as Helsinki. In Old Town you may have some issues with acessability, expensive not child friendly places, etc., but thier are plenty of places that are ok for kids too (like KULDSE NOTSU KÕRTS).

Most restaurants have children's "high chairs" and some even have small children's play areas, but I cannot think of any close to the center at the momment. Although none of them in Old Town do. If you take sleeping strollers with you finding a place to park them might be a problem.

During the day Gili S's sugestion about Viru Keskus is excellent. There is a buffet with a supervised children's area right next to it that you can even leave your kids at if you want to shop alone for a little while(if they were older). If you want a little better quality, on the top floor in the book store there is also a very good cafe.

Try It has a great list of restaurants with interior pictures of each one. It's also in about 10 different languages, including Finnish.

by bugulma

Dome, or Cathedral of Saint Mary the Virgin, is the main Lutheran church in Estonia. The original wooden church is been built on Toompea Hill in 1219, and was first mentioned in 1233. The stone church was begun ten years later. Notable items in the church's interior include numerous gravestones from the 13th to the 18th centuries and numerous nobles' shield epitaphs from the 17th to the 20th centuries. Among the famous people buried in the church are Sophia Gyllenhelm, daughter of Swedish king Johann III; and the Russian admiral Adam Johann von Krusenstern, who led the expedition around the world.

Tipping in Tallinn

by UndercoverGourmet

Tipping is a general custom in Estonia when visiting restaurants, bars and pubs.
Usually the minimum tip is 10% of the end price, although never under 5 EEK. It is also considered a complete "F*** you" to leave the tip consisting only of coins.

In some places when paying with card you can leave the tip on the check, but it is highly recommended for your own financial safety to leave tips in cash only.

Clothes for swimming

by Raimix

When I left Lithuania, it was almost raining, and in Estonia I was expecting not the weather for sun burns and being a sea. Anyway, almost all days were nice and sunny and one day I went to Pirita beach to see how it is. There was so much people here enjoying sun and sea, but it was my fault, that I haven't had any clothes for swimming.

Catherine's park

by TheWanderingCamel

Kadriorg - Catherine's Valley - named for the wife of Peter the Great - a short tram ride from the centre of Tallinn, is a lovely seaside area of park and gracious houses. Tallinners come here in droves on summer weekends, to the acres of parkland, to visit the various museums and to join in whatever event is being staged at the huge Song Grounds, be it beer festival, rock concert or summer fair. Come in winter, as we did, and you may well have the whole park to yourself - as we certainly seemed to do.
It was Peter the Great who made Kadriorg fashionable - you can visit both the small house he lived in whilst his palace was being built and the palace itself, currently Tallinn's Museum of Foreign Art.. Also within the park you'll find the Presidential Palace ( a bigger, newer version of Peter's palace, not open to the public) and some smaller museums -notably the Mikkel Museum ( showing one man's collection of fine art that he gave to the country in 1995) and two houses devoted to the life and works of two important Estonian writers, Anton Hansen and Eduard Vilde. You may not know their work but the museums give an interesting glimpse of between-the-wars Estonian life.
Work is in progress for a huge new Art Gallery and a Russian culture museum within the park, which will make it even more of a cultural and artistic drawcard for the city.
