A visit to this area certainly won’t leave you hungry either and you’ll especially need a nice bit to eat and a chance to sit down after pretty much any activity in the Rocca al Mare area. There are decent places to eat within the shopping centre itself such as the Japanese Silk and Little India and a few great places near the western entrance to the zoo like the Italian restaurant Rucola and Umami, another 5-minute walk down the road.
Getting there: Rocca al Mare is a mere 20-minute ride from the centre by public transport or a 10-minute taxi ride. If you choose public transport to reach the Open Air Museum, take either bus N°21 or 21b from Viru stop to the Rocca al Mare stop. The Zoo and the shopping centre can also be reached by buses N°21 or 21b from Viru stop or 42 from Vabaduse väljak to the Zoo stop. Alternately, bus N°43 from Balti jaam train station will also take you to the same stop. Ride three more stops (to Karikakra) to reach the western gate of the zoo and some of the eateries in the neighbourhood (some walking required).
Put on your hiking boots! This outdoor museum includes a whopping 70 buildings, mostly farm-related, sprawled out across 70ha of forest and land in Rocca al Mare, on the shore of the Kopli Gulf. There are even a couple of windmills, sheep, rab
