Tallinn’s most famous cemetery, Metsakalmistu was officially opened in 1939. Among its most famous permanent guests are Estonia’s presidents Konstantin Päts and Lennart Meri, writers Lydia Koidula and Anton-Hansen Tammsaare, chess player Paul Keres, composer Raimond Valgre and singer Georg Ots. Even if you don’t visit these celebrity graves, a stroll through the rest of the cemetery is still a fascinating and peaceful experience. The ambiance is especially beautiful here on November 2, All Souls’ Day, and during Christmas when all of the plots are glowing with candles. Take bus N°34A or 38 from Viru Keskus bus terminal (C-4) to the Metsakalmistu or Pärnamäe stops.
