Things To Do
A unique city where history and modern culture combines, Tallinn is home to a thriving contemporary arts scene, stunning examples of Hanseatic architecture, gourmet dining opportunities, beautiful parks and vibrant nightlife.
Explore the cobblestone streets of the beautifully preserved Medieval Old Town. Visit the Town Hall Square, the social heart of Tallinn and the setting for lots of outdoor cafes, seasonal markets, festivals and open-air concerts. Just outside of the Old Town, the stylish and modern Rotermann quarter features boutique shops, luxury hotels, art galleries and an open-air market famous for community events.
Boasting a huge variety of animals – including the world’s largest collection of mountain goats and sheep – Tallinn Zoo is popular with both children and adults alike.
Admire Tallinn’s many churches, including St. Nicholas Church, near Raekoja Square, and St. Olaf’s Church; which was considered the highest building in the world during the 16th and 17th centuries. Take a trip back in time and immerse yourself in the rural way of life of days gone by at the Estonian Open Air Museum; an extensive reconstruction of an 18th-century village where historic public buildings and farmhouses are nestled in a bucolic setting.
