Arriving in Tallinn
Lennart Meri, Tallinn’s international airport, is located just 4 kilometres from the city centre. To get there, you have several options:
- Take the bus: Line 2 runs every 20 minutes during the day and will take you to the city centre. There is also a direct minibus service, blue bus #90 K, which will also take you to the centre. Whichever you choose, the trip will take about 10 minutes.
- Take the tramway: Line 4 stops just near the terminal and runs from 5:07 am to 12:45 am every day. It will drop you at the “Viru” stop near the centre of the city in around 20 minutes.
- Take a taxi: the stand can be found just outside the Arrivals Hall. The trip should not cost more than €10.
- Hire a car: there are six agencies in the Arrivals Hall.
What to do in
With fewer than 450,000 inhabitants, Tallinn is the smallest of the three Baltic capitals. But that doesn’t make it any less enticing. Founded a thousand years ago, ruled by the Danish, the Teutonic Knights, and the Swedes, conquered by Peter the Great and oppressed under the yoke of the Soviets, Estonia has had quite the history. You’ll see the pride it holds for this history throughout its old city, listed as a World Heritage Site. But that doesn’t mean they're all living in the past here! As capital of one of Europe’s most “digital” countries, it plays host to numerous start-ups that contribute to its thriving economy...and its thriving weekends too!
A romantic getawaySee more See less
With its ancient walls teeming with history, the natural charms of its coast, and its unique Baltic traditions, a holiday in Tallinn is anything but run-of-the-mill. Even if there's nothing stopping you from sharing this enchanting city with your family or friends, you’ll find it at its most charming when visiting as a couple.
Its centuries-old streets, lined with artisanal shops, are perfect for wandering hand in hand. Its restaurants, whether they showcase local cuisine or more cosmopolitan fare, are the making of romantic and indulgent evenings out, nibbling off one another's plate and discovering new, unique flavours. Its sites, museums, and monuments are a veritable cultural feast: art, heritage, tradition, and so much more. The banya, Russian equivalent to the Turkish bath, or else the saunas, will provide you an afternoon of well-being, while its numerous nightclubs will lure you in with promises of a wholly different kind of self care.
he top 10 things to do in TallinnSee more See less
- Climb up Toompea hill. At 30 metres up, it dominates the city and is encircled by ramparts. Inside these fortified walls you’ll find an enormous castle that brings together the Baroque and the medieval. Today it plays home to the Estonian Parliament.
- Go inside Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. Its domes have stood opposite Toompea Castle since 1900. Inside you’ll find renowned golden Orthodox icons.
- Head for Raekoja square, in the heart of All-linn in the Lower Town, the other part of the historic centre. It’s home to City Hall, a huge 600-year-old Gothic building, as well as Europe’s oldest operating pharmacy: the Raeapteek. It opened in 1422!
- Wander Katariina Käik (St. Catherine's Passage) - it’s the most beautiful medieval street in All-linn. Here you’ll find many artisan workshops where they make jewellery, pottery, stained glass, leatherwork, and more.
- Take part in a dance of death - that of Bernt Notke, whose Danse Macabre dates to the end of the 15th century. Displayed in the St. Nicholas Church, this painting is as big as it is captivating, depicting several prominent people of the age dancing with the dead.
- Experience the age of the Tsars at the castle in Kadriorg Park. This Baroque palace was built by Tsar Peter the Great for Catherine, his wife. It is now home to the KUMU (the Estonian Art Museum). The park is one of the most romantic and peaceful places in all of Tallinn.
- Take in one of the most breathtaking views over Tallinn from a table at the Tallinn Radisson Blu. Perched atop the hotel, the lounge and bar dominate the city, from the historic centre to the coast of the Gulf of Finland. Captivating!
- Go even higher up (170 metres to be exact) by visiting the observation deck and café of Tallinn’s TV tower. Once back on the ground, go for a walk in the botanical gardens just nearby.
- Steam yourself! Treat yourself to a detoxifying moment of self-care in a sauna or banya, the Russian equivalent. Estonians can’t get enough! Kalma Saun is the best place to go. Men and women are separate, even if no one is naked.
- Breathe in some fresh, salty air in Pirita, Tallinn’s window to the sea. It’s boardwalk borders kilometres of beach. A short bus trip will take you to Seaplane Harbour Lennusadam, a fantastic maritime museum that will let you visit a real submarine, among other things.

What is the best time of year to visit Tallinn?
The Baltic winter isn’t for the wary! But if you’ve got good cold-weather gear, the snow-covered beaches of Pirita and rooftops of Toompea are worth seeing. But to get the most out of your trip to the Estonian capital, it’s best to wait for the weather to warm up, from May to September. This will also allow you to take part in some of the many fantastic festivals. Late May, for example, plays host to Tallinn Old Town Days, which brings medieval Tallinn back to life, while the Birgitta Festival in August takes over the ruins of the Pirita Convent for more than a week to entertain those who can’t get enough of concerts, operas, ballet, and more.
