Kalamaja & Kopli

Located just a short hop from the Balti jaam train station lies the eclectic and historic district of Kalamaja. The area's name means 'Fish House' and many street names here betray Kalamaja's fishing-, sea- and industry-related roots: Kõie (Rope), Kalaranna (Fish Beach) and Telliskivi (Brick). Travel a little beyond the Kalamaja area and you’ll run into the more industrial district of Kopli which, as of yet, has little to offer sightseers except perhaps some interesting crumbling architecture. Both regions, often lumped together as one, are within walking distance or a short tram or bicycle ride from Old Town.
