Estonia has truly taken great strides to show that it’s still possible to enjoy life, while staying safe, and there’s plenty to enjoy here - if you are lucky enough to end up in Tallinn in the near future for business and or some other essential reason.
While the Old Town is fascinating and will always remain a special gem in Tallinn’s crown, we urge you to also venture out to Kalamaja where you’ll find some funky bars, cool cafés and tasty street food, as well as to Noblessner - the city’s seaside hotspot.
If it’s nature and parks you’re after, head to the picturesque neighbourhoods of Kadriorg and Pirita. Nestled in between the two, you’ll find the hilltop Maarjamäe, Estonia’s tribute to wartime history and remembrance.
As always, we have packed Tallinn’s most up-to-date guide with everything you need to know about the city, and although there haven’t been so many new openings as of late, the choice of bars, restaurants, and sights remain stellar.
Update January 2021 - Due to the uptick in Covid 19 cases, currently all dining and drinks establishments are closed for eating/drinking in until January 28th. Many of the fine restaurants, cafés and bars in Tallinn are however open for take out, or delivery through one of the various delivery apps servicing the city. Bolt and Wolt are both excellent choices for ordering in, and will deliver to your hotel, Airbnb or any other accommodation you have arranged. If there is an eatery you are interested in you can visit their webpage or Facebook profile for more details, their current status - or you can just pick up the phone and call them. Museums, exhibition halls, and gyms will reopen January 18th. Shopping malls, food stores and other shops have remained open, with certain restrictions in place.
