Astellaria Travel Agency

by ShootingStarr

Hello, I am a Canadian citizen of Estonian decent who will be travelling to Estonia for the first time this summer for the song festival. I am a package with Astellaria travel agency, and want to make sure they are reliable.

Has anyone ever hear of Astellaria and have anything to say about them, good or bad?

Thank you so very much!

Well, it seems you already booked and paid with them, it's a little bit late to ask now if they are reliable isn't it? Well, you will be wiser when you finally arrive to Tallinn to see if your booking and reservations are valid ;-)

No, I have not booked and paid yet, I am considering their song festival package.

Before buying a package, you might consider how much you'll save on a do-it-yourself job. You can buy tickets for the event itself from http://www.worldticketshop.com/venues/tallinn_song_festival_ground and there are no end of hotel booking sites.

Travel Tips for Tallinn

"Ettics"

by brazwhazz

While visiting the Dominican Monastery, we came across a posting that explained the origins of the "ettics" stones, which stand out yp to a foot on each side of house entrances.

Basically, the ettics were used instead of addresses by house owners: each had a different design and was specific to its house. Increasing street traffic in the 19th century led to the removal of many of these stones, but you can still see some scattered around the Old Town. (The famous "House of the Blackheads" door still has its ettics.)

Once we learned about these stones, we started looking for them while strolling in the Old Town. It made our walks even more interesting!

(By the way, Tallinn is the only place where I ever found/heard the word "ettics" used. If anyone knows another name for these stones, I would be glad to hear it.)

Old Tallinn

by TheWanderingCamel

This lovely 18th century painting in the art gallery out at Kadriog shows clearly the spire of St Olaf's Church and the city skyline looking very much as it does today with the Old Town nestled at the base of Toompea and many other steeples and spires reconizable. Then the church's spire may well have been still the tallest building in the western world - its spire was originally 159m high, though reconstruction in 1820 saw it reduced to 124m. Whatever its height, it certainly served as a major landmark for shipping in this corner of the Baltic.
In those days the city was right by the sea, and some of the walls were in fact very close to the water - the tower known as Fat Margaret was the Sea Gate to the city. Year by year the land is rising slowly however, and now the old city is some distance from the water.

Try Vana Tallinn liqueur

by BillNJ

When I ordered Vana Tallinn liqueur at the Nimeta Baar, one of the bartenders initially tried to talk me out of it saying that it tasted like medicine. Despite the warning, I purchased a small glass --and I rather enjoyed it. Sort of like B&B but not as sweet. Of course, I chased it down with some A. Le Coq beer.

Finns buying Estonian beer

by HORSCHECK

Many Finnish people just come over to Tallinn to buy beer, because alcohol is very expensive in Finland. On the ferries from Tallinn to Helsinki you often see them with a small trolley packed with Estonian beer cans.
The most famous brand seems to be Saku, with their main product Saku Originaal. It is well known all over Northern Europe and also in the USA and Japan.

Vabaohumuuseum - The Estonian Open Air Museum

by frockland

About seven kilometres away from the city centre is the Estonian Open Air Museum (Vabaohumuuseum). Its also known as “Rocca Al Mare”, This name was given by the former major of Tallinn, Girad de Soucanton, who loved Italy, when he built his summer residence here in the mid 19th century.

The museum is built in a large 73 ha area in the forest. More than 70 farmhouse were reassembled here and allow to step back in time. Most of the houses can be visited inside where typical furniture, tools or other “living equipment “ can be seen. Explanation signs are in Estonian, English or German. Some staff is English speaking and happy to give you extra explanation. (Thanx to the lady in the school). Don´t miss the first farm house on the left side, where the detailed history of its inhabitants is given on some 20 posters from the end of the 18th century to the time when the farm yard was moved to here.
There is also a restaurant serving traditional food.

The museum is open daily (except 1 Jan., 24 Jun., 24 - 25 & 31 Dec.) 10.00 - 20.00 from May - Sept. and from 10.00 - 17.00 Oct - April.

Admission for adults in summer is 50 EEK, (25 EEK in winter) .

Take trolley bus # 6 to the Zoo and walk one Kilometre to the entrance gate.
