      Tallinn Oct 16, 2015 at 12:11 PM


      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.

      Buying a public transport smart-card at the airport at around 21:30 h

      Tallinn Sep 5, 2015 at 9:52 AM

      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.

      Tallinn May 28, 2015 at 2:58 AM

      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 !

      Best way to get from Tallinn to St Petersburg?

      Tallinn Feb 23, 2015 at 3:18 PM

      Hello all
      I had understood that there was a trainline running between the 2 cities? However, 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
      Thanks everyone!

      Any advice is gladly accepted

      Tallinn Jun 25, 2014 at 3:48 AM

      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.

      What must be done and where must be seen in Talinn in two days

      Tallinn County Jun 14, 2014 at 1:27 PM

      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.

    • Places for a more mature group...

      Tallinn May 12, 2014 at 5:15 AM

      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!

      Thanks again,

      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!
