Inside the Tallink Hotel, on the ground floor by the lobby, there's a large spa complex offering several swimming-pools, fidderent types of saunas and spa tratments. Excellent to relax, have a drink in the main pool and spend a rainy day with your family.
In April, 2012, I thought I was going to watch a football match at the Kalevi Keskstaadion, which was built in 1956, holds 12,000, and is home stadium of JK Tallinna Kalev. But when I arrived at the stadium, it was totally covered by snow, and the match was moved to a nearby football training field. Much smaller place, but no ploblem because there were only 200-300 spectators for the match between JK Tallinna Kalev and JK FC Flora in the Meistriliiga.
JK FC Flora won 3-0, and they were a much better team. JK FC Flora is also the most famous of the two clubs; they have won the national league and the Estonian Cup several times, and players like Mart Poom and Andres Oper started their career at JK FC Flora.
Unfortunately, my work schedule keeps me away from Tallinn, and my wife, for 2 months at a time... when I am home I like to go to a gym in order to keep fit. Although there are many gyms in Tallinn, there are only a couple that will allow you to pay as you go. I would say to steer clear of all of the gyms in town except Club 26 at the Reval Hotel Olympia. Although this is not the most well-equipped fitness facility I have ever been to, it has enough equipment to keep you busy, and the price is not bad either.
This is a football team in Tallinn and I have seen them. I know a friend in this club, so I could see the game for free. The football standard in Estonia or in Tallinn is not so super. But it was nice to see difference culture anyway.
Equipment: Just a good smile and your normal clothes, because you will NOT play at all.
LaserClay shooting is great fun, five people can shoot clays and electronic scoreboard keeps score of fasted and best shot, safe for all the family as fires harmless infrared beams instead of bullets.
Archery shooting with expert instructors and special field course
Equipment: All equipment supplied, just need sturdy shoes and warm clothes if weather is cold
Tallinn (or Estonia in general) has very nice beaches, good wind also for wind surfing and sailing. The Moscow 1980 Olympic competition was here, and also the world championships last year.
Equipment: Don't look at this bad weather picture, I was just on the wrong day here.
In the Tallinn old town you can try your hand a some medieval archery or just watch the professional plunk some arrows into the target.
