Summer terrace season is officially open with the outdoor cafes popping up here and there around the Tallinn Old Town.
Two reasons to head to Tallinna Lauluväljak today: handicraft fair (by far the best place for scoring some warm socks!), and Kõigi Eesti Laul concert which is organized by civil movement Kõigi Eesti in support of open and tolerant Estonia.
So get yourself a nice cup of tea or coffee, stroll through Kadrioru park and enjoy the day!
In case you’re into football, TOPS has Liverpool vs Porto on big screen. About 15 minute stroll from the hostel to Kalamaja’s true local legend that is TOPS.
Guess what guys, we’re on this list! VICTORY!

Excelente lugar. Céntrico y limpio. Tiene todo lo que uno necesita para su estadía. Gracias a Dora y Edgard que me ayudaron en todo.
The clocks will be going forward on the early hours of the last day of March. So Tallinn & Estonia will be moving from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) back to so-called Summer Time also known as Daylight Saving Time (DST or GMT+1). An American politician and inventor Benjamin Franklin first came up with the idea of saving daylight while in Paris in 1784. Back then it was all about saving candles.
Tallinn has quite a few public clocks like any other cities. Our oldest public clock dates back to 1684 and is hanging on the wall f the Holy Spirit Church. Read about the other tic-tocks from below ⏰⏱🕰⏳
Sharing this photo because… well, our house is in it!
Next to the church with two towers and a green roof, that’s us on the right 🙂
Good news for everybody who doesn’t have the time to actually make it to Lahemaa and Viru bog during their stay in Tallinn! There’s a little bog haven right in the Old Town at the Estonian Natural History Museum (Eesti Loodusmuuseum). Its permanent exhibition of local mires was recently opened and gives an excellent overview of that world. Their temporary display called ”Fathers & sons” is more aimed at younger visitors and provides an overview of babies and child care in nature. Ticket to the museum is 6 euros. When you have a Tallinn Card, you can enter for free.
