Library of Tallinn University

by Kristina1701

I'm wondering if anyone has been to Tallinn for research at Tallinn University/Library. If so, is it easy to find out how everything works if you don't speak Estonian and is there English speaking staff that helps you with e.g. locating books etc.?

you can try a long shot, see if you can locate the goverment run or sponsored web site for tourism , for the country where tallinn is here ( www.towd.com )
they may have a email address. if so ask if they have a email address for the university in tallinn.
also check for web sites for other well known universities. if you find one with an email address as i they can provide you with email address for the university.

I'm sure it's not a problem you don't speak Estonian. Check Tallinn University Library's web page here: http://www.tlulib.ee/?LangID=2&CatID=369

Re: Library of Tallinn University

I wouldn't assume anything in Estonia. Most Estonians will tell you that the English level is high there, but being an English only speaker that has spent off and on about two years there , that is not true. I have been in a gas station in the middle of nowhere and had the attendant speak perfect English and then had problems in the Tallink ticketing office, which needs to deal with foreigners every day, not have anyone in the office that speaks English. My general rule is if they look under 30 they probably speak English, if 30-40 maybe, if older, then I hope you speak Estonian or Russian. Unfortunatly, most lower level govt. jobs(like library staff) there are occupied by older Estonians. It has also been my experience that most instructions are also not translated into English either.
But having said that, being a University setting you may have a better chance of finding an English speaking staff, or at least finding students that speak English and are willing to help.It has been my experience that Estonians won't help if you don't ask but are very helpful if you do ask. If you are doing some type of German historical study then it may help to try to contact someone in that field, in Estonia first. If you are hoping to find Estonian books translated into English, good luck.
The lack of English should not stop you from doing your research there, just be aware that it is not the same as going to, lets say Finland, where speaking English is rarely a problem, and that I would suggest finding some contacts there as a backup plan,just in case.

Saku rules!

by Stevieboy

Well, boys and girls, this is the one - Saku beer, world famous in Estonia and Finland and the reason of existence of many a ferry company. Hordes of Fins drag boxes of this stuff home and save hundreds of euros per year from the price difference.

As a Belgian, I am rather spoiled and not easily satisfied. Saku is not bad though. Not exactly "world class", but a soft pils, and easily enjoyable.

Booze!

by maria_mullah

I didn't really know where to put this tip, but I have to
share it with you.
I definitely think you should try two of the local liquors:
Vana Tallinn and Liviko Liköör!
I'm having a hard time describing the taste here, so
I won't. See for yourselves.
Enjoy!

Estonian Kroon and Money Exchange

by HORSCHECK

Although Estonia joined the European Union (EU) on the 1st of May 2004, they don't have the Euro as currency.

The local currency in Estonia is the Eesti kroon (EEK). Cash can be exchanged at banks and exchange offices (Valuutavahetus). Before exchanging money, I recommend to check the rates and fees of a few offices.

There are often differences in the rates. The
sign "0 % COMMISSION" does mostly refer
only to "SELL" and not to "BUY" transactions.
Don't hesitate to ask, how much you really
get for your local currency.

Don't exchange your money on the street; these people usually cheat you with other foreign currencies.
