Places to see in Tallinn, things to do in Tallin Estonia

1. Town Hall and Town Hall Square

 The square in front of Tallinn's Town Hall functioned as a marketplace for centuries, dating back to times even before the Town Hall itself was built. Through the years this served as a place of celebrations as well as executions. Today the square remains a cultural focal point for the city. In summer, it's filled with outdoor cafés and is home to countless open-air concerts, handicraft fairs and medieval markets. In winter, an annual Christmas Market enchants the crowds on the square, as does the town's Christmas tree (a tradition whose roots stretch back to 1441), which stays up for a month or more.

 

 

2. St. Olav's Church

St. Olav's Church was the tallest church in Medieval Europe. The earliest data on St. Olav's Church come from 1267. Little is known about the building of this Gothic style church and its early years, but there may have been a church on this location as early as the 12th century, alongside the Scandinavian market yard. In summertime it is highly recommended to make an effort and climb the steps up to the tower to enjoy the magnificent panorama view over the Old Town, the port and the sea.

 

 

 

3. Kadriorg (St. Catherine's Valley)

Kadriorg is one of the romantic hotspots of Tallinn. It boasts a large park with ponds, flower gardens and pathways, which are all there to surround the magnificent Kadriorg Palace. The Kadriorg Palace was built by Russian tsar Peter I. Currently, the baroque Kadriorg Palace is housing the foreign art collection of the Estonian Art Museum, which organizes concerts and theatre performances, lectures and receptions, in addition to art exhibitions.

 

 

4. Museum of Occupations

This modern museum is the first in the nation dedicated to the 1939 - 1991 time period, during which Estonia was occupied briefly by the Germans, and for a longer time by the Soviet Union. Audio-visual displays, photos and sound recordings highlight the events of the era, repression and popular resistance, as well as showing how ordinary people coped with the day-to-day realities of this difficult period. The Museum of Occupations gives a perfect insight to what the Estonians have had to go through in their history and helps to understand them as a nation. For anyone interested in the people and their background, which has made them who they are now, this is definitely a must-visit place.
 

 

5. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral

Alexander Nevsky Cathedral is Tallinn's largest and grandest cupola cathedral. The large, richly decorated Orthodox church, in mixed historicist style, was built on Toompea Hill in 1900, when Estonia was part of the Russian tsarist empire. The architect of the church was Mikhail Preobrazhenski from St. Petersburg. The church is dedicated to the Prince of Novgorod, Alexander Yaroslavitz Nevsky, who led the famous Ice Battle on the banks of Lake Peipsi on 5 April, 1242 and halted the Germans' eastward advance.

 

 

6. The Town Wall and Towers

Medieval forts, which first appeared during the early development of the medieval city in the latter 13th century, surrounded the downtown to create a closed-o. defense zone. Constant additions and improvements meant that, by the 16th century, Tallinn boasted one of the most powerful and strongest defense systems in Northern Europe. The town wall was then 3m thick and 16m high, stretching 4km around the city, and connecting 46 defense towers. Today, 2km of the original wall and 26 of the towers remain intact.

 

 

7. Town Hall Pharmacy

Town Hall Pharmacy is one of the oldest pharmacies still functioning in its original spot in all of Europe. The pharmacy, which stands on the corner of the Town Hall Square, was first mentioned in historical documents in 1422, but by some accounts, it may be older still. The town council-governed pharmacy sold many other goods besides medicine.

 

 

8. St. Catherine's Passage (Katariina käik)

St. Catherine's Passage is a landmark combining master craftsmen's workshops with a medieval atmosphere. It is without doubt one of the most romantic spots in the Old Town. The open studios of artisans are now located here, and visitors can watch artists and craftsmen practise their craft daily. While each studio is unique in appearance and function, they are all united in the principle of the open studio: here one can view works not only as finished products, as in an ordinary gallery, but also as the end product of various processes that the open studio presents to the visitor.

 

 

9. Kumu Art Museum

Opened in 2006, the Kumu is the impressive new main building of the Art Museum of Estonia, and it's naturally a magnet for every visitor interested Estonian culture. The immense, hightech facility serves as both a national gallery, displaying the classics of Estonian art, and a contemporary art museum, showing off the latest trends.

 

 

10. The Open Air Museum

The Open Air Museum presents a unique collection of old Estonian buildings on a 79-hectare expanse of seaside land. Farm buildings, windmills and water mills from various periods and regions have been brought together here. Folk holidays are celebrated in traditional style at the museum, and often folk dance and music can be enjoyed here.
