Tallinn can be reached of course by car, boat -ferry-, train and airplane. However, air travel has in general been recommended to be the best way to reach Tallinn.

(All ferries except Linda Line dock at Reisisadam port, to the north of the center.)

(Estonian rail is a cocktail of private companies and subcontractors which could make it fairly hard to get around by train.)

To be seen during leisure time:

One should check out the main draws in Tallinn, which include Toompea Castle (Toompea Hill) whose 1773 provenance is actually pretty modern for this part of town; Alexander Nevski Cathedral (Palace Square, 8 a.m. - 6 p.m. daily) was built in the late 19th century in the style of Russia's 17th century Orthodox churches; and Toomkirk Cathedral (Palace Square, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. Tuesday - Saturday). Kiek in de Kok (1 Komandiandi Tee, 10:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. except Monday), a tall cannon tower, offers a visual perspective. Also theTown Hall Square; it is lined by numerous cafes and winding streets and full of boutique-style shops. Town Square was developed in the 14th century and its near perfect preservation is almost eerie -- yet incredibly beautiful. Next, Kadriog that was built as a summer residence by Peter the Great for Tsarina Catherine; it's now a gallery of paintings and located in the midst of a gorgeous seaside park. Interesting to visit could be also the Estonian Open-Air Museum that  lies on the peninsula of Rocca-al-Mare, 25 minutes' taxi drive west of the city center. The park consists of a range of wood mills, houses and other structures dating back to the 17th century.


For shopping, aim for Viru Street, which has the city's best collection of boutiques. Recommended as tourists' souvenirs are usually the handmade wool sweaters or the sophisticated glass art.

Internet: Kohvik Grill (Vana-Viru) offers cafe food and Internet-tapped computers.

There are plenty of pubs and cafes in the old town. For local atmosphere there's Von Krahli Baar (Rataskaevu 10-12, open daily from 11 a.m.) and Kloostri Ait (Vene 14, from noon - midnight). Kuldse Notsu Korts (The Little Piggy Inn, Dunkri 8, from noon - midnight) has tons of atmosphere -- not to mention a roaring fireplace -- and funky food, like beer soup with ice cream and sauna-smoked lamb leg. For an upscale lunch featuring Estonian cuisine go to Vanaema Juures (Rataskaevu 10, noon - 10 p.m. Monday - Saturday, noon - six Sunday).
