    Herring salad

    by leics Written Jul 27, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the one place in the museum where you can get food and drinks (apart from a few ice-creams etc at the entrance building).

    Dating from 1840, it's a traditional village inn, with tables inside and out (and a large room at the back which obviously caters for tour groups etc).

    They offer various traditional and non-traditional food options, including pea soup and the Estonian dessert 'kama' based on ground grains and sour milk.

    I had a herring-based salad (pictured) which tasted much nicer than it looks, and was remarkably filling.

    Beer and coffee too.

    A pleasant place in a lovely setting.

    Flagstone island farm

    You can get a taxi if you want, but it's easy enough to get the 21 bus from outside the Baltic Railway station (tickets from the yellow 'R kiosk', or from the driver for a few EEK more). The bus stop is directly in front of the station entrance.

    The bus stops right outside the museum entrance on Vabaohumuuseumi tee, so you can't really miss it. The journey takes around 20 minutes.

    You'll have to get the bus back from the same stop, as the bus makes a loop around the area. Don't panic: you'll go some way further on before you actually head back towards Tallinn again, but you will get back eventually!

Rocca-al-Mare Warnings and Dangers

    Wood-ant nest

    by leics Updated Jul 27, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As it's a lovely woodland site, the museum is home to lots of creatures.

    These include wood-ants, whose nests you will find at the base of many pine trees.

    They are fascinating writhing masses of energy and hard work. Watch and wonder.

    But do not ever be tempted to go too near, to to poke about with a stick (which would be a pretty awful thing to do anyway, imo). Wood-ants bite, and it hurts (especially if you are slightly allergic to their bites).

    Watch and wonder, but keep your distance (and make sure your children do too).

    It's a (lovely) wooded and damp site, so if you are visiting in the summer months you can expect to be bitten by sundry gnats, midges and other flying things.

    If they like you (and they certainly like me) then take some insect repellent and anti-histamine cream with you!
