    Tallinn Warnings and Dangers

    Tallinn seems to be a quite save destination for travellers. You need common sense like every else in the world; and like in many other places of our world there are sick people. West of Toompea Hill in Toompark there is an old, declining sports field. This seems to be a favourite place for the local junkies to satisfy their addiction. Be...

    Tallinn Warnings and Dangers

    We were warned and told to use only Tallink taxis (which are mainly yellow) because some other taxis propably will cheet you. So when we needed a taxi we took a Tallink taxi from a station nearby Viru Hotel to Tallink Spa hotel. The price was 9,20 Euros. Other people took a taxi from another company at the corner of City Portus Hotel near by...

    Tallinn Warnings and Dangers

    Hi There, WARNING: take a blanket with you to Estonian events, even in 20+ degree days (see below for the reason).

    Tallinn Warnings and Dangers

    I'm not saying they're dangerous, but walking on the COBBLESTONE STREETS can be hazardous. The stones are not always laid out flat or even and some even stick out or have gaps between them.

    Tallinn Warnings and Dangers

    There are enough warnings about pick-pockets and bag snatchers around the town that you really should be on your guard, but don't be paranoid. It's a safe city, and as long as you aren't stupidly flashing your money around you should be ok. There's almost no violent crime here either, so unless you go looking for trouble, you probably won't find...

    Tallinn Warnings and Dangers

    I was in Tallin in late June, but still there was heavy rain for a whole day. Of course it's not a real danger, more of a warning actually. You miss out on the beautiful colours of Tallin, but at least you don't have the supersonic guided tours from the cruise ships!
