Currency for Tallinn visit

by Murielmj

We are going to be in Tallinn for a day from our cruise in July, and I would like to know what currencies are accepted in Estonia. Are Euros accepted, or do we need to get the local currency? (I had heard Estonia might be converting to euros)

Do they accept Roubles? (we would be in Tallinn after being in St. Petersburg)
Any other tips for this day would be welcomed. I have a map of the walking tour and intend to walk around as much as possible.

Hi.
The Eesti kron is tied to the euro and they will probably join the euro in january2011.
I am pretty sure they accept euros a lot of places but it is wery easy to take out
Eek in atm`s all over the city.
I doubt that they will accept roubles.

Old Town is a nice place to walk and from there you can walk the narrow street called Pikk Jalg up to the Aleksander Nevski cathedral and Toompea.
Or you can take a bus to Rocca al mare or Pirita.

Hi,

I just came back from a 2-day business trip to Tallinn, and as far as I could tell, Euros were accepted at quite a few places, but far from all places accepted euros. The simplest way is to get cash at an ATM, this way you won't have to think about the conversion of EEK/Euro (EEK=Estonian Kruuna). There are also quite a few places where you can change money, but it will cost you an arm and a leg.
The old town is pretty much what I had time to see, and it is a pretty old town. There are plenty of restaurants and small museums that are built upon the medieval "olde hansa" theme.

Enjoy your stay in Tallinn!

Thank you for this information. It will be very helpful for my walking trip.
Also, I will have euros with me as we'll be in Germany and Finland, so thay can be my back up.

Dear Nicolaus,
Thank you for the information. As I said above, I'll have euros. However, I assume you mean exchanges would be the most expensive places to go for money. I will have ATM card with me, so that is ok.

Can you tell me a little about prices in Tallinn. As we're there just one day, we'd be needing Lunch and possibly snacks. This would be for 2 people.
Thanks
MJ

Hi,

Well, I don't know if I'm too late, but prices in Tallinn are generally reasonable, but not dirt cheap. Since I was on a business trip, most of the meals were either in the conference room, or pre-arranged at some nice(read expensive) restaurant in the old town.

I do remember paying 800 EEK for a three course dinner, including beer, wine and a cognac the size of a bathtub.

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful regarding the price levels. But they do have nice woolen sweaters, and I don't regret buying one. I use it almost daily, even though every keeps telling me summer has arrived in Sweden ;)

Travel Tips for Tallinn

Soviet Cars

by antistar

These days Estonians prefer BMWs and Mercedes, but it's still a good place to discover the unusual and hidden world of Soviet and East European cars. Some are so well loved that they are kept in pristine, almost new, condition, despite their age, like this shiny, waxed green Zaporozhets ZAZ-968 in the photo.

The Zaporozhets was the most popular car in the USSR, similar to the Mini or VW Beetle. It also endears similar feelings of nostalgia with Russians, which explains why Russian president Vladimir Putin keeps a white one, exactly like the one in the picture, even with the "ears" at the back.

Unlike the export cars like Lada, the "zapor" was unseen outside of the USSR, and so is an uncommon sight for visitors to these parts.

Tourist information office

by jonkb

This should be your first stop. Here you'll get excelent information as well as the Tallinn card, as well as a bunch of other interesting books and booklets.

You'll find it on the corner of Kullassepa and Niguliste.

Puhavaimu Church (Holy Ghost Church)

by bugulma

Church of Holy Ghost is the only sacred building from the 14th century in Tallinn that has preserved its original form. The simple, humble Church of the Holy Ghost was completed in the 1360's and, but for the exception of the baroque spire, it has retained its original medieval exterior.

Black Streamers of Mourning

by grandmaR

The Estonian national flag is a tri-color, with three equal horizontal bands - blue, black and white. These colors symbolize important qualities - blue is referred to as the color of faith, loyalty and devotion; it also reflects the qualities of the sky, sea, and lakes. Black is said to be symbolic of the dark past of suffering of the Estonian people; the traditionally black jacket of the Estonian peasant during past times. White represents the striving towards enlightenment and virtue. White is also the color of birch bark and snow, and summer nights illuminated by the midnight sun.

It was June 14th when we were in Tallinn, there were a lot of flags and all of the Estonian flags had black streamers on the top of the poles. Our pedicab driver told us that this was in remembrance of the June 14, 1941 Deportations. Officially, this is the - Day of Mourning and Commemoration (Leinapäev)

Estonia was annexed by the Soviet Union in 1939-1940, and the first large scale deportation of ordinary citizens was carried out by the local operational headquarters of the NKGB (the Estonian branch of the KGB). On June 14, 1941, and the following two days, 9,254-10,861 people, including more than 5,000 women and over 2,500 children under 16, and 439 Jews (more than 10 percent of the Estonian Jewish population) were deported. Men were generally imprisoned and most of them died in Siberian prison camps; women and children went mostly to Kirov Oblast, Novosibirsk Oblast. Hundreds were shot. Only 4,331 persons have ever returned to Estonia.

The flag days in Estonia are: Jan. 3 -- Commemoration Day of Combatants of the Estonian War of Independence; Feb. 2 -- Anniversary of the Tartu Peace Treaty; Feb. 24 -- Independence Day, Anniversary of the Republic of Estonia; March 14 -- Mother Tongue Day; second Sunday in May -- Mother's Day; May 9 -- Day of Europe; June 4 -- Estonian Flag Day; June 14 -- Day of Mourning (flag must be hoisted as mourning flag); June 23 -- Victory Day; June 24 -- Midsummer Day; Aug. 20 -- Day of Restoration of Independence; Sept. 1 -- Day of Knowledge; second Sunday in November -- Father's Day.

Under law, the flag must be raised on flag days on the buildings of state and local government agencies and legal persons in public law.

On Independence Day, Victory Day and the Day of Restoration of Independence, the Estonian flag must be displayed also on residential buildings and office buildings.
