Kalev Marzipan Room

Estonia's famous candy factory operates a tiny museum and shop in the Old Town building where the company started back in the 19th century. Here you can find out all about the history of marzipan, first used as a medicine in the Middle Ages, as well as other interesting facts about this almond based sweet. You can take a look at the intricate, hand-painted marzipan creations, including some hundred-year-old moulds and if the timing is right, even take in some interesting stories from Otto Kubo who has worked at Kalev for 60 years.




Open 10:00 - 21:00.
