I am looking for reasonobly priced, clean and safe accommodation in and within walkable distance from this venue --
Mustpeade Maja, the Guild House of Black Heads, Pikk 26 in Tallinn 10133
I would prefer a single room in a hotel or bed and breakfast, hostels are OK if they have a private bathroom.
Thank you for your time,
I have booked a cheap return flight from Italy to Riga in October.
I would like to split my 8 days / 9 nights between Estonia (maybe Finland) and Latvia, but I'm not sure if I'd better stay 5 nights in Tallinn and 4 in Riga or the other way around.
I'm interested in visiting cities, towns, churches, castles, museums... I will be moving around by train/bus, so I will only go to places that are easy to reach without a car.
In Estonia, I want to visit Tallinn, Tartu, maybe Narva and Helsinki (all day-trips from Tallinn, Helsinki being a bit more unlikely). Should I add/remove anything?
In Latvia, I plan on visiting Riga, then take one or two day-trips to Cesis and Sigulda. What else?
Any advice on how to split my days in the Baltics and what to visit is welcome.
I am planning a short trip to Tallinn & would like to know the best place to buy cigarettes in bulk in Tallinn. We prefer UK brands like Dunhill International & want to buy about 3000.
Me and a couple of friends are looking to book a long weekend in Tallinn, we are all in our mid 40s and wondered whether we would feel out of place in this vibrant location.
We are all single so would welcome some friendly female company, are there any places you could recommend where we will not feel too ancient / out of place?
I'm not the only VT member accepting only a REAL DOUBLE BED when I book a hotel room.
So, if Your hotel in Tallinn has REAL DOUBLE BEDS with big sheets (over and under) and big blankets, please tell it not just here but also on Your website.
I also wish that Your hotel chain could use a good visual symbol for REAL DOUBLE BEDs.
Hi we will be in Finland to chase the lights end of this Oct and greedy me wants to do a side trip to Tallinn as well! Would a 2 days 1 night trip be sufficient for Tallinn? We have never been to that part of Europe before but I love old towns, history and culture. Please share what are the must-dos, must-eats (Olde Hansa?), must-drinks etc...
Would My City Tallinn hotel be a good choice? Alas we don't have the budget to stay in the Savoy or St Petersbourgh and My City hotel looks like a decent choice!
Appreciate all advice given for a short stay in Talliinn (around the last week of Oct)!
I will be taking a bus from Tallinn airport and would like to stay at a hotel that would be close to a bus stop Laikmaa Street, .

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 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, I'd like to know is there any legal graffiti walls in Tallinn? If there is, could you please tell me the locations?

Can anyone please recommend a local restaurant or pub, where we can have lunch.

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!
