If you’ve noticed an air of festivity in Estonia, it’s not just the holiday season, which is upon us. Estonia is celebrating its 100 year anniversary since its first independence. While Independence Day isn’t until 24 February, 2018, festivities will be taking place throughout the country, as well as in Tallinn.Tallinn In Your Pocket is celebrating too. Until February 2020, we’ll publish 100 fun and interesting facts about Estonia. We will also be featuring a different county each issue. In this issue you can read about Lääne-Viru and Ida-Viru and find out more about Estonia’s beautiful northern coastline, its Soviet industrial past, and the border town of Narva, among others.
Winter is officially upon us! But hey, that’s not such a bad thing in Tallinn. The medieval cobblestones are often tucked under a snowy blanket. The warm glow of the shop windows radiate out onto the romantic streets. And, in addition to the EV100 festivities, there are many concerts and events taking place, which you can read about in our events.
If you’ve come to Tallinn over the holidays, you’ll also get to enjoy the long-running ‘Christmas Market’, having been previously chosen as one of the top Christmas markets in Europe by the “Times Online” and “The Daily Telegraph”. Read more about it here. Also make sure to check out our Christmas Gift Ideas feature in the print guide, where we take you on a tour of some of Tallinn’s hottest shops, boutiques, and studios.
Wishing everyone a pleasant holiday and a Happy New Year!
