    Favorite thing: under construction

    he Estonian Parliament is housed in the Toompea Castle.It is one of Estonia’s oldest and grandest architectural groupings. Built in the 13th to the 14th centuries, the castle is situated on the steep limestone coast, 50 meters above sea level. It is one of the most potent symbols of reigning power, conquered over the centuries by various nations

    The Toompea Post Office is also located in the Old Town, at Lossi plats 4, and is open Monday to Friday, 9:00 - 17:00.

    Fondest memory: UNDER CONSTRUCTION

    There aren't many cinemas in Tallinn (four to be precise!), so that heavens for the Kino Soprus, a veritable champion of the arts. From behind it's Corinthian-columned facade, the Soprus is responsible for some of the most independent and artistic screenings in town, with a particular bent towards Scandinavian and homegrown talent. It recently won the Europa Cinemas award for 'Best Young Audiences Activities, and also hosts the Sleepwalkers’ Student Film Festival - an integral part of the prestigious Black Nights Film Festival or Poff.

    The Estonian Academy of Arts (Estonian: Eesti Kunstiakadeemia, EKA) is the only public university in Estonia providing higher education in art, design, architecture, media, art history and conservation.

    According to the Statutes of EAA the main objective of activity of the Estonian Academy of Arts is to promote creative and research activities, to enable acquirement of contemporary higher education basing on integrated study, creative and research activities and meeting the standard of higher education in the field of fine arts, design, media, architecture, art history, conservation and teachers' training
