Tallinn Markets and Shops

Tallinn’s old city’s is great for crafts and shops. One especially quaint shopping zone is along the Katariina passage (Katariina käik), off Vene street (I-3). A string of tastefully done craft studios/shops in medieval buildings sell handmade wares that are made on the spot, from leather and hats to glass and quilts. This place is a must for tourists on the prowl for high-quality souvenirs. Lühike jalg has a range of tasteful craft stores featuring the work of Estonian artists. Committed hagglers should hit the outdoor markets.

Opening hours are generally from 10:00-19:00. Many shops close early Saturday, with the exception of the big malls and grocery stores, most Tallinn stores are closed Sundays.

Tallinn Handicrafts Market
Located at Mere Puiestee this Tallinn market offers a lot of souvenirs, many of them from Russian origin. You will see everything from carvings, amber, matyroshka dolls to hand-knitted jackets.

Some craftsmen sell their wares along the street, like on Müürivahe in the old city. Prices are cheaper than in stores and Estonian artisans excel in leather goods, ceramics, wool, jewelry and wrought iron. Woven snowflake-design sweaters are also classics. Look for colorful national costumes.

Tallinn Knitting Market
Held in front of the medieval city wall, the knitting market is a daily non-food market mostly selling warm clothes with typical Estonian patterns. You’ll find jackets, wool, socks and hats, mostly sold buy women who are already working on the next item to put on their tables. This is the best place to buy a typical Estonian souvenir.

Tallinn Flower Market
Even if you are just browsing, the Tallinn flower market is a great place spend some time looking around. It is located in the new part of town, just outside the gates of the main entrance to the old town. You can see flowers of every type and it really adds some colour to this part of Tallinn!

Tallinn Wool Market
A quaint and pretty market where you can buy all kinds of hand knitted items. The emphasis is on Finnish or Nordic types of knit, many with tiny reindeer prancing around on hats and jumpers and cardigans. The stalls are wooden huts decorated with white fairy lights. Many stock similar items, but it’s worth wandering from one to another and doing a little bargaining. Prices are very reasonable.

Tallinn’s Market Square
In front of the City Hall is the oldest market in town. It has always been a location for markets and fairs. Around the square there are outdoor cafes, restaurants and small shops. Also, since 1441 the annual Christmas Market has taken place here…

Tallinn Christmas Market
November 26 – January 8, 2013

For the third year Rotermann Square, is the home for the main market and is the perfect setting for the little huts and the Christmas tree that people are already familiar with. There’s no better time to be in Tallinn than during the holiday season. Estonia’s medieval capital is inherently festive, particularly under the quilt of snow that the city’s latitude dumps each December. And though temperatures do dip quite drastically this time of year, the city’s celebratory atmosphere does well to dispel the cold.

Though Tallinn’s Christmas market only became a yearly tradition in 2001, it has already established itself as amongst the most well-loved and happily-visited Christmas markets in Europe. Certainly what it lacks in tradition it makes up for in atmosphere and ambiance, dispelling December’s darkness with colourful lights, music and activity.

Surrounding an enormous Christmas tree hung with lights and decorations, artisans sell a variety of original products including felted wool hats and slippers, buckwheat pillows, wooden bowls, wickerwork, elaborate quilts, ceramic and glassware, little sea-grass animals (so Estonian), homemade candles, wreaths and other decorations.

Holiday shows are common on the cobbled square and traditional Estonian holiday food is also served: pork, sauerkraut and blood sausages, hot soups, stir-fries. Other traditional treats include gingerbread, marzipan, various local honeys, cookies, nuts and sweets. Hot mulled wine poured from large wooden barrels keeps the crowds warm.

Tallinn Shops
Tallinn is very ‘modern shopper’ friendly and has more to offer than just the traditional handcrafts. The best places to find quality fashion, shoes, perfume and the like are the elegant boutiques along Old Town’s Viru and Müürivahe streets, and the large, full-service department stores and malls that have recently been appearing all over Tallinn.

Happy Shopping!

The rich history of Tallinn, Estonia can be explored by visiting one of its many museums. To help narrow down the options we have compiled a list of the top 5 Tallinn Museums.

Tallinn KGB Museum

1. KGB Museum
In Soviet time Hotel Viru was good enough to accommodate foreigners. It also had to be good enough for the KGB … The museum represents a collection of the stories of two worlds. In one of them, mostly existing on paper, happy Soviet people enjoyed a life of plenty and friendship, led by a single wise political party. The other world – the real one – had a nature much more diverse and complicated.

Voted by many as one of the Top Museums to visit…
“Fascinating tour, great slice of soviet history and the guide did a great job of providing insight in a compelling way. Definitely visit it.”

2. The Kumu Art Museum
The museum site is located on four hectares in Tallinn, on the limestone bank of Lasnamägi next to Kadriorg Park. The office of the President of the Republic of Estonia and Kadriorg Palace, which is a part of the Art Museum, lie in the vicinity of the art museum. The building has seven floors, including technical floors, and the total area is 23 900 m². In 2004 the new museum got its name – Kumu – in an open competition.

The Kumu (KUnstiMUuseum) Art Museum is a modern multifunctional art building, which contains exhibition halls, a lecture hall offering diverse facilities, and an educational centre for young visitors and for art lovers.

The Kumu offers various exciting tours. Come to the Kumu to see, hear, think and experiment!
Tour fee is 48 €. Tours can be booked in Russian, English, Finnish and German. Other languages upon agreement.
The museum ticket price is added to the tour fee.

3. Tallinn City Museum
The Museum introduce the visitors into the city life and the relative development. The exhibitions plans are dedicated to twentieth century, the wars, the Soviet occupation and finally the independence. Tallinn City Museum is a collection of 8 different museums. Out of these, the main building is generally preferred as the Tallinn City Museum. It is located at the Vene Street 17 in Tallinn city of Estonia.

The museum holds a permanent exhibition which displays the rich history of Tallinn city. Tourists can see the artifacts belonging to different eras, which range from the medieval times till the date of Tallinn’s independence.

4. Estonian Open Air Museum
Outside the city centre, on the seashore in Rocca al Mare, there’s Estonian Open Air Museum, where you can see Estonian rural architecture and village life from the 18th to the 20th centuries. There is a church, a tavern, a school, some mills, a fire station, etc. The museum’s 12 farms give an overview of how people with different economic conditions lived in the olden times. It’s a great place to pass time and gain some wisdom in every season.

5. Kiek in de Kök
The museum inside this great artillery tower (whose name means “peep into the kitchen” in low German because from the upper floors soldiers could peer into the houses of the lower town) is interesting, but don’t miss a guided tour of its limestone bastion passages, which reopened in March with new video and sound effects. Built to conceal the movement of soldiers, the 500m of passages (half are still being dug out) were used as a bomb shelter during the 1944 Soviet bombings, and inhabited by a large community of homeless people in the 1990s.

She sets the tone for the trip, and our tour was one of the most entertaining and fun-filled tours I’ve been on. From the ferry trip to Prangli island to the rugged beauty of the coastline and quaint, rural village, everything is special and memorable about this tour.

Luxurious apartment accommodation, reasonable prices and a great location make for a wonderful place to stay during your visit to Tallinn. Here are some of the reviews from guests that have stayed with us at Pikk 49, many of are return customers who keep coming back!

Stay In Tallinn Apartments

“Wow – best Tallinn apartment I have stayed in. High quality throughout, loads of space and great location. Being in Pikk street was perfect for the shops, restaurants and going out in the evening. Didn’t even need to use a taxi once. Will stay here again next time I visit Tallinn.” – Marc Mutton

Tallinn accommodation bedroom

“The accommodation in Tallinn was perfect. Just what we were looking for and you were right when you said it is in the best location! To step out of our front door and be right in the heart of the old town was wonderful. Plus I was very impressed with the apartment. You have obviously put a lot of effort and thought into making this a beautiful place to stay. Thank you so much. We had a fantastic time.” – Petra Peters

Tallinn Apartment Accommodation

“Best Tallinn accommodation I’ve stayed in, out of my 5 trips there. The apartment is huge and they’ve done a top rate refurbishment job, plus of course you can’t beat the location in the centre of the old town. When I called their UK phone number to book, the woman spoke fluent English, was very helpful and able to answer all my questions. Then when I arrived in Tallinn I was met at the apartment and given the keys by a very helpful woman who gave me some great ideas of where to go out. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience. On previously visits to Tallinn, I’ve stayed in a great apartment in a noisy location in the old town, a not very nice apartment in a great location, and had all kinds of fun trying to be understood by the apartment owners, so it was a relief to finally get it right and find a great apartment in a great location, with someone who I could actually talk with properly! I highly recommend this place and just wish I had found it on my first visit!” – William Jacobs

How to find the best Tallinn Accommodation

I’m assuming that you’ve already worked out that it’s far better to choose Tallinn apartment rental rather than stay in a hotel (if you aren’t sure yet, have a look at this: Review of Tallinn hotels)

Here are the 5 most important things that should be on your check list when deciding between holiday apartments in Tallinn (in order of importance)

1. Location
Where you are based in Tallinn can make a big difference to your stay. You definitely want an apartment in the old town as this is where all the main sites and attractions are, but you must be careful of its exact location if you plan to get any sleep, as some parts get very noisy at night until 5 or 6am!

There are lots of Tallinn holiday apartments that are not in the old town. These are often a bit cheaper than old town apartments, but you are likely to end up spending more money and wasting precious holiday time travelling to and from all the attractions. You’ll also miss out on the great atmosphere of stepping out of your Tallinn accommodation straight into the beautiful medieval pedestrian streets.

Holiday apartments in Tallinn

If you find an old town apartment and it seems quite a bit cheaper than the others, the reason is often because it is based too close to the town square which gets very noisy at night, or it is situated a door or two away from one of the many all night bars or nightclubs (i.e. you won’t get any sleep). Sometimes the Tallinn holiday apartment owners will mention this, sometimes they won’t!

Previous clients have told us that our old town Tallinn apartments are in the perfect location on Pikk Street – just a few minutes walk from the town square, but situated where you can get a peaceful night’s sleep.

(If you are wondering what to do whilst in Tallinn, this site has lots of ideas Tallinn Tourism)

2. Apartment Size
You usually get what you pay for with Tallinn apartment rental and all Tallinn accommodation is not equal. Check the size of the apartment to see if you are getting value for money , but also take into account point 3 below.

A spacious Tallinn apartment rental

3. Apartment Interior and Facilities
Some Tallinn holiday apartments have been beautifully refurbished, keeping the original historic features and have all the modern facilities you’d expect. Whilst others have cheap, low quality interiors and aren’t maintained very well – I know, as I’ve stayed in some of these lower quality apartments thinking I was saving money, then regretted the experience!

Tallinn accommodation with high quality refurbishment

Our Tallinn accommodation at Pikk street (49) was recently renovated to a very high standard with all modern facilities and interior design by Peter Sampson, a top British designer.

4. Price
If you want value for money, you probably already know that with a Tallinn apartment rental you can get affordable luxury and the accommodation space to really enjoy your stay. The alternative is to stay in a cramped hotel room, which in the old town will be very expensive.

5. Ease of booking and ease of Check-in / Checkout
The holiday apartments Tallinn has to offer vary a lot and this is especially true when it comes to ease of booking and checking in and out. First it helps a lot if the contact for the apartment speaks fluent English.

Also ideally you want them to meet you at the apartment with the keys – this sounds obvious, but I once staying in Tallinn accommodation where I had to register and pickup the keys from one side of town whilst the apartment was on the other side of town! Our Estonian accommodation manager speaks fluent English and will meet you at the apartment with the keys.

Planning a city break to Tallinn? We have visited Tallinn many, many times and on this page give you the ‘insiders’ guide to the best Tallinn accommodation and hotels, flight information plus things to do and see.

Tallinn city - great place for a breakAbout Tallinn: Tallinn is the capital of Estonia and is in Northern Europe. It is just 80 km across the sea to Helsinki in Finland and a regular ferry allows for an enjoyable day trip. Tallinn old town was built between the 13th and 16th centuries and is the top tourist attraction. It has twisting cobblestone paths, Gothic spires, magnificent cathedrals, medieval markets and an impressive fortified town wall. If you are staying in a city hotel in Tallinn, there are also plenty of great restaurants, bars and nightclubs close by for those who want to mix culture with a lively night life. This is definately a place for your holiday wish list.

Accommodation in the city of Tallinn
Hotel in Tallinn cityThere are a wide variety of city hotels available in Tallinn, from budget to high end luxury. One of the most important decisions when choosing where to stay it to check that you are based in Tallinn city centre (the old town) as this is where most of the attractions are. A lot of the big hotel chains are in Tallinn and offer rooms that are typically quite expensive and fairly small. If you want affordable luxury Tallinn accommodation you should definably have a look at serviced apartments. These are often within beautiful historic building in the old town and give you excellent value for money for fantastic accommodation.

Tallinn Flight info: The three main airlines with direct flights from the UK to Tallinn are, Easyjet, Ryan air and Estonian air. There are also many flight options with other airlines that have 1 stop somewhere, but this does tend to add quite a bit to the flight time and is not great for a short Tallinn city break. From Tallinn airport you can get the bus to the old town, or it is just a cheap 15 minute taxi ride. There are airport hotels, but with good Tallinn city hotels so close by you would only really need these if going straight on to another destination.

Tallinn city is ideally for an interesting breakThings to do and see on a Tallinn city breakTallinn is an exciting, dynamic city with a rich culture and plenty to do and see. One of the big reasons people go on city breaks to Tallinn, is to explore the UNESCO listed old town, with its beautiful historic buildings, spectacular cathedrals and even a medieval castle. In the summer you can also enjoy the long sandy beaches, with the best being Pirita beach, which is just a 15 minute drive from the old town. A highly recommended place to visi, that is a bit further afield is the Kadriorg Palace and Park. This is a resplendent 18th Century summer residence with wonderful landscaped gardens, built by Tsar Peter 1st for his empress. The Art Museum of Estonia has its foreign branch spread across several of the palaces spacious halls and has a great collection of paintings, sculptures and applied art from West Europe and Russia.

If you are planning to go to Tallinn on holiday or do a short Tallinn city break you will find lots of useful info on this page and in our other blogs. Below, you can also read about the 3 things that we think all good holidays to Tallinn should include.

You can start by watching this video. Enjoy!

What you can see on your Tallinn holiday

Three things to include on your visit to Tallinn, Estonia:

1. Make sure you visit the Old Town and ideally choose Tallinn accommodation that is located here, as this is where most of the sites are. The Old Town has two distinct parts, one is built on a hill called Toompea – where there are breath taking views, and the other part is the Lower Town, at the base of Toompea where the main town square is situated.

2. All Tallinn holidays should include a visit the town square, as this is the centre of activity and often has a traditional and lively market. It is also the place where many of Tallinn’s festivals and music performances happen. So you can often enjoy some great entertainment whilst you sit in one of the many al fresco restaurants and bars around the town square.

3. See the defensive walls that surround the old town of Tallinn. Particularly interesting parts are the section at Viru Gate where you can see the ‘Fat Margaret” tower. Also the section of the wall as you head to the upper town. Here you can walk along the top of the wall and even stop for a glass of hot wine from the wall top bar!

Holidays to Tallinn - a visit to the town square

3 things to make your Tallinn city break even more enjoyable:

1. A city break to Tallinn is a great way to enjoy a long weekend. Try to book your plane tickets as early as possible for the cheapest fares and staying in a serviced apartment in the old town can give you spacious luxury Tallinn accommodation at the price of a small, cramped hotel room.

2. Tallinn is the European city of culture for 2011 and a full calendar of events is available.

3. Holidays to Tallinn are great in the Winter or the summer, but make sure you take the right clothing! In the winter it can get quite cold – often down to minus 10 to 15 C and the in summer it is certainly hot enough to swim in the sea, so remember your swimming things.
