What to do on Sunday in Tallinn

Unfortunately, due to the low demand for the Sunday Excursion in previous years, the hosts have taken the decision to not run one this year. However, if you are thinking about what you can do instead, we have created a few Top Tips for Tourists in Tallinn!

Tallin is a fairly new capital in Europe which boasts a rich mix of architecture and culture in just a small geographic area. Even better that it’s all in walking distance so no need to worry about Taxi’s!

Old Town
Tallinn’s unique medieval Old Town is the perfect place to start your trip. Divided into a Lower Town and Upper Town (the hill of Toompea), the old town is adored by everyone. It boasts many restaurants, bars, museums and galleries to explore. Unlike other European cities, Tallinn has managed to preserve is medieval and Hanseatic structures. Here you will find original cobblestone streets, medieval churches and many other buildings that date back to the middle ages. You can easily spend an entire day (or two) discovering the Old Town, but if you wish to mix it up a little, add Kalamaja to your to-do list. Situated within walking distance from the Old Town, the area is known for it’s relaxed atmosphere, colourful wooden houses, bohemian cafés, trendy shops, lively culture and nightlife as well as the impressive Seaplane Harbour museum.

A top tip: The Tallinn Old Town is a favourite among locals and tourists alike, so if you wish to avoid the crowds during cruise season (summer), plan your visits for early in the morning or for the afternoon.

Free city tours in Tallinn
If you are no good at map reading or get lost easily in a new city, but still want to see the sights, the Tallinn free Traveler Tours offer the perfect solution! The Tallinn free Traveler Tours are the most popular in the area and the best introduction to the beautiful city and Estonian Culture. The free city tour runs every day at 10am, 12 noon and 3pm in the Old Town. This tour takes about 2 hours and is completely free (a tip is of course gladly accepted)! Gather in front of the tourist office in Tallinn Old Town (Nigulise Str. 2) and you will be taken to the main attractions (however, entry into the attractions isn’t included).

Estonian Open Air Museum
Travel back to rural Estonia in this vast museum filled with recreated 18-20th century villages. See the local vernacular architecture, Estonian history and everyday culture. You can also buy handicrafts, ride horses, and try traditional Estonian dishes at the inn. The museum is located in the quiet, seaside Rocca al Mare area.
