My wife and I will be in Tallinn for New Years and was wondering how much is open, in particular restaurants/cafes etc, on January 1st? If there are some places open, would you suggest we make bookings as they could be busy?
Thanks in advance.
Hi, is fur in Estonia as cheap as in Russia/ is there any shop that you would recommend buying in? Specifically looking for mens
Does anybody know if I will be able to get a public transport smart-card at the airport at around 21:30 h. Are there any machines where I can bus the card or will there be any shop open at that time of the night where I can buy the card?
I know that I can also pay the bus driver in cash, but I would prefer to directly buy the smart-card.
Thanks for your help.
On a recent trip to Tallinn I discovered the remarkably delicious Kalev chocolate! I did not bring enough home with me. Is there any way to order on line and ship to me here in the US?
Are there any US retail outlets?
hi, we are 4 people coming by cruise
anybody knows a good tourguide who is able to guide us through Tallin for about 7-8 hours for the old city plus maybe a good place for lunch
is there any interesting halfday-excursion that we could do from Tallin ?
we come in a cruise and will do the city in the morning. For the afternoon we would like to visit a place closeby with a lively atmosphere, something special that you will find only there, a medieval market maybe, maybe a castle, simply something different from the city of Tallin !
I'll be staying in the old town..is olde Hansa really that expensive?
Sounds fabulous to me...would love to take my mum there...
I had understood that there was a trainline running between the 2 cities? However, bahn.de isn't really showing anything for this.
Is the bus a better and quicker option for getting to St P?
Is an advanced reservation recommended for this? It must be a busy route
I am researching for a possible near futre trip to Tallinn.I would also like to try and visit a couple other cities as a ONE DAY GROUP TOUR if available.So if anyone knows of any companies in Tallinn providing day tours to Helsinki? St.Petersburg? And Riga..?? Much appreciated!I do not want to do it alone by ferry etc..so yes I want a group day tour for these.
There is a sculpture in a wall recess of a priest (?) and a child. Does anyone know what or who it depicts?
I have to be at the airport for a 6 am flight. What time does the taxi services begin from the city and what would I be expected to pay at such an early time
I need information whether ferry crossing from Helsinki to Tallinn will be operating on 31 December 2014.
I am planning to celebrate New Year's Eve in Tallinn.
Hi to all, I will be in Talinn for two days and would like to visit Rocca Al Mare,Viking village restaurant or something similar and Parnu.Would like to learn what transportation is best (more important cheaper) to visit there? Also would like to have local cuisine for dinner and perhaps have a break in a good pub or beer house. But as you would appreciate, touristic places are quite expensive and not always the exact quality. I prefer to investigate the city by myself and would be happy to hear your advices. Thank you all for your interest.
can I rent a tent somewhere in Hiiumaa??
I'll be visiting Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania shorlty. Does anyone know a single mobile company that provide internet access in these 3 countries? I'd prefer to buy a pack with a few GB.
Hi, I want to travel with bike and tent through Estonia. Its difficult to carry a lot of food. Where could I buy supplies in Saaremaa? Certainly in Kuressaare. But anywhere else? And at weekend? Thank you
I will be travelling to Talinn in July with a tour agent.
But I prefer to investigate the city by myself.
Because tour operators sometimes take people to places that don't worth seeing.I mean places that have been formed to attract tourists.
I always prefer to feel the spirit of the city covering all its culture,history etc.
I would really like to hear your advices about what must be done and where must be seen in Talinn in two days.
Thank you all in advance.

Hey all, thanks for reading and to those who reply. Yes, we are going to Tallinn for a stag (I can imagine all the eye rolling now) BUT most of the group are married, we are all in our 30's and not the type to go out causing trouble in a drunken rage or molesting the poor local women. Thing is, we still love to party hard! We are there from 23rd May until 26th and I wondered what is recommended as the best nightlife options for us on the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (We are likely to opt to take VIP areas if available) and yes, ok I will say it if the single guys in the group happen to meet attractive, high quality women on our nights out I do not think they will complain!
Any opinion about , "Aia 5old apartment" and Parker Boutique Apartament in Tallinn?
Hi, i will be in Tallinn for 10 days, but we want visit Riga and St. Petersburg and maybe Helsinki or Stockholm !

Is it possible with bus connections ? Is there an excursion available from Tallinn ????
How long does it take to visit.
Couple in their seventies visiting in July. Not able to walk very long distances. A short list of 4 star hotels close to places of interest would be appreciated.
How to get to the port for ferry to Helsinki, Is signage clear in English at the port ?
Cost of taxi from airport to hotels.
I am going to Estonia, probably to Tallinn airport and I need to get to Imavere...I found that there should be a bus stop, but I can´t find any bus schedule or if it is the bus line from Tallinn to Imavere, could you help me where I could find the information about connection between Tallinn and Imavere, please.
Where to I get the minibus to Kuressaare and do I need to reserve in advance? Also would appreciate knowing how often they go and the cost.
Grateful for answers! :)
I have a lot of questions regarding public transport. Will be in Tallinn this summer with my daughter & grandson and expect sometimes to use a bus or tram.
Are individual tickets only sold by the driver? Cost? Do these tickets need to be validated and how do I do that?
Is it true that Seniors travel for free?
How does a Smartcard work? Would we need 3 cards or can one card be validated 3 times? How do I add more trips onto the card?
I realize these are very basic questions, but I would like to know before hand. Thanks to all who answer!
Bus times please to Tallinn Airport fro vohma
