We will arrive in cruise in Sep..
Have 2 questions please:
Does this park open in Monday?
If so, is there a transportation from old town to the park and from the park back to the habor?
Hi, coming to Tallinn from a cruise ship for a few hours. Just like to know how to get around from the cruise ship to the city/town and main things to see, bars, restaurants etc.
all replies appreciated
Might be too late to ask, since there is not so many people at Tallinn forum usually, but I´ll try.. Witch is the easiest way to get to Pirita closter? Is there bus going, and is it only one bus or do we need to change?
Planning my first visit by end of april, what about the weather at that time?
I would love to surprise my Estonian friend with a paid holiday, however I do not know what to get her.
In the family they are two parents and two kids (five and 2 1/2 years old). I would like for them to get away for one week during the summer holidays.
What is a typical holiday for one family from Estonia? I would like to give a giftcard otherwise she will refuse accepting my gift.
I would be grateful to get some tips regarding children holidays activities in or outside Estonia.
we will be visiting both cities this August. it seems that there is now train service between the cities, but the duration of ride is 6 1/2 hours, almost the same as riding the bus (7 hrs)?? if this is true, which is the better means of travel?
also, if anyone has any special thoughts/ideas about either destination, please share!
I would like to take ferry from Tallinn to Helsinki in mid May,2013. I looked in on line booking, found 2 booking sites in English looks like from UK, they only showed Viking line and Tallink/Silja and Lida line, not showing Eckero line which suppose to be cheaper. I only intend to go on foot one way, there are other booking site but either in Finn or Estonian (which I could not understand) not in English but they show the price of the Eckero line. Could some friendly Estonian or Finn to translate "foot passenger" and one way? or any advice?
Hello all, I´m planning a 10-day trip to Riga, Pärnu and Tallinn in March, hoping it is a good season to go there? Also, I´d like to know what else is there to visit in Latvia and Estonia? For example, is it nice going to the countryside or towns apart from the capitals in winter? Or would it be better to include Helsinki on this trip to see more? Please let me know! Thanks!

I am looking for pictures of the former KGB Headquarters in Tallin that I can print as photos. When I was there earlier this year the property was under renovation and I couldn't get a proper photo of this building. I would appreciate help. Kathryn
We are trying to get hold of a telephone number of e-mail address for this place but cannot find a number that works. Does anyone know how to reach them! Need to make a booking for a large group!
I intend to travel by train or bus from Tallinn to Kingisepp, Russia in 2013 and then to cycle back to Tallinn. Can I take my bike on a bus or train when travelling to Kingisepp (or even as far as Narva on a bus)?
Tere! Where is normal to eat in Parnu? Tasty. I don't need a smart restaurant. It would be great if in this buffet or cafe will be corner for children. Thanks!
Tree! How to get to Kiipsaare lighthouse? Some practical advices please!
Hi, we are a family of five and we are visiting Paldiski for a few hours on out trip from Tallinn to Padise next week, with a car. What do you recommend we should see there? The shores look beautiful, where is the best place to enjoy the see and the cliffs? What about the old Soviet buildings? Are any of those open to public? Is there a museum and when is it open? What buildings should we see even if we can only see them from the outside? Is there something else you would recommend we see or do there? I'm afraid we won't have time to visit the islands, since we have to continue our journey quite soon, but any tips are welcome! Thank you very much in advance!
Is it possible to return an already bought bus ticket in half price?
Can anyone please help? Our trip is all booked withe exception of the journey from Parnu to Tallin. We are travelling from Riga to Parnu on Lux Express but they won't let us travel from Parnu to Tallin as its not an international trip. We'd prefer the train but a bus would be ok. Ideally, we'd like to prebook. Thanks
We will be in Tallinn in late August, for only one day on a cruise. We have a choice of three tours, none of which is similar to the other. Here are the choices: 1. Highlights: Old Town, Nun's Gate, Gothic Town Hall, Apothecary, Kadriorg Park, Paroque Palace, Song Festival Ground, St. Brigit's Convent. 2. Gothic Treasures: Old Town, Upper Town (Keik in de Kok Cannon Tower), Danish King's Garden, Town Hall Square, Great Guild, Holy Ghost Church, Apothecary. 3. Tallinn & Old Town: Old Town, Russian Orthodox Church, Castle/Parliament, Long & Short Leg Streets, Apothecary, Great Guild House, Blackhead's Brotherhood House, Dominican Convent, St. Catherine's arts & crafts center. Which is the best choice. All three tours are given at the same time, so we can't do more than one. Thanks for your opinions. Carl
I'll be in Tallinn for 4 days. I've heard you only really need 2-3 days to see the city, so does anyone have a suggestion for a day trip to another city/area in Estonia? I would like to be able to leave early in the morning and get back to Tallinn that night, and I won't have a car so it would most likely need to be via bus (or train). Thanks!
Hello! I would like to ask what is the cheapest way to get from Tallinn to Helsinki? How much it could cost both ways? If a date is important, trip could be planned from September. Thank you! Greetings! Raimis.
I'll spend some time in Tartu in April/May. Are there any special events in this period?
Hello there I am planning a trip to Narva in late april, and since I have never been to Estonia before I have a couple of questions; - We are going to Narva - we are Danish, but can we manage with our English (and a bit of german) or...? - We are looking into going home via Tallinn on may the first - but I have become aware that that is a public holiday. It is in Denmark too, but everything runs as "everyday" on this day - how is that in Estonia? Is is possible to get anywhere or do anything, let alone travel home, on this day, or would it be wise to find another date? - We have been reading on the web about Narva, but are there anything we need to know, good or bad, let me know here :-) Thanks in advance, Jebir :-)
We will go by car to Tallinn at first week of June, and I thought we might go to Tartto and maybe Pärnu. Any other beuatyful towns? We have only driven through Via Baltica, and never stopped on the way. Now we could use a week or something.
We are going to Tallinn this weekend and maybe trying to find some christmas presents while we are there. Someone told we should visit "the new shopping centre". We have only visited Viru-keskus and very quickly in it also. I tried to google, and maybe the new one is Solaris? But I just can´t find their address! I even found their page, but didn´t find any address at their own pages.. Is it at the centre? We are not so much "shopping-kind of people", so I´m not sure if we would like to go far. Even if I know the shops are cheaper far from centre. We rather like handigrafts (I know there is lots of knitwear, but those I can have from my mother in law) like silver jewellery or handmade chrismast decorations. But maybe we will find some of those at christmas market opening at saturday. But for some teenagers and other relatives we might need to visit some shoppinfg centre.
Hello! I will be spending 5 days in Tallinn during New Year's Eve. I was wondering if you guys could give me any tips on how to party and hang out in Tallinn. I already found a lot of information about clubs and bars in Tallinn but I was wondering if there is an alternative scene with good music (no house or hip hop!!) and cool people. I will be in Tallinn with two more friends and since we are all students, we always try not to spend too much money, so the cheaper the better! Our hostel will be in the Old Town so it will be easy to go places, but since there are so many things, it is hard to pick the right things. So if you have any suggestions, please help me!! :) Oh and also, where will everyone be around New Year's Eve? Is there a big square where everyone will go? Will there be fireworks? Thank you!
I will be visiting Tallin on a cruise and was wondering if it is possible to walk from the port to the top of the old town pushing a wheelchair. I cannot get on the buses to take an organisd tour. I do not want to miss out on the sites. Irene
