Weekend Breaks to Tallinn
The capital of Estonia is a delightful city lying on the southern coast of the Gulf of Finland. There is a lovely Old Town to explore by day and plenty of bars and clubs to try out when the sun goes down.
What to See in Tallinn
Perhaps the best way to start your group holiday in Tallinn is to explore the medieval parts of the city on Toompea Hill, with its cobbled streets and alleyways, before making your way down to the lower town. Here you will find plenty of green spaces to relax in when the weather is good. Get around on foot, by bicycle (there are plenty of bikes to rent, and advice and maps from City Bike) or by bus, tourist bus, tram or trolleybus. Attractions to check out in the Old Town include Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, St Mary’s Cathedral, the Museum of Occupations (exploring life under the Nazi and Soviet regimes) and Pikk 61 (ex-KGB headquarters). Away from the Old Town attractions include the enormous Tallinn Zoo, the Open Air Museum (with 72 traditional Estonian buildings set in a forest), Kumu Art Museum and Tallinn TV Tower, where you can visit the observation deck for great views. The coastal position of Tallinn is a real asset and you can take boat trips out across the bay, or visit one of several beaches.
Raekoja Plats in the Old Town is a hub of cafes and restaurants and you should have no trouble finding good, authentic Estonian food. Try the neighbourhoods of Kalamaja and Kopli for alternatives away from the busy tourist areas if that’s what you seek from your short break in Tallinn. For a drink, Porgu, Beer House and Drink Baar all have dozens of beers from across Europe at good prices. Lab Bar is more quirky, serving up shots in test tubes, and Texas Honky Tonk & Cantina is good for frozen margaritas and tequilas. Lounge 24 on the top floor of the Radisson Blu Hotel gives you spectacular views as you drink. The club scene for group holidays, including stag and hen weekends, is as varied as anywhere. There’s variety, from the strict door policy and high prices of Bonbon and Prive, to the more inclusive Hollywood and Terrarium.
