Toompuiestee 37, 10133 Tallinn, Estonia
In the context of the bygone Soviet times, the market could be considered an entrepreneurial experiment of sorts. A far cry from the modern city centre, it's still very alive today and frequented by locals seeking better deals on food or clothes....

The Soviets built this thing for the Olympic regatta of 1980 set to take place in Tallinn. The idea was to demonstrate to the Western powers the superior concrete pouring skills of the Soviet Union. This would've been a great idea, if everybody...

Niine 11, 10414 Tallinn, Estonia
The quality of the food that you get in this café/bistro is unheard of for such little money, even rivalling the standards of a fine dining restaurant. Sesoon’s seasonal menu is constantly changing and includes several vegetarian options. None of...
Telliskivi 60a, 10412 Tallinn, Estonia
Despite the rundown look of Telliskivi area more and more hip places are opening up in the complex. Pudel (Bottle in Estonian) Bar is the newest addition to the mix with its picky attitude towards beer. And by picky we mean it in the best sense of...
Roosikrantsi 16, 10119 Tallinn, Estonia
This place is so much fun with all the anime themed details - the waitresses wear costumes (and kitty ears!), the walls are pink and there's a TV showing anime cartoons all day long. They also offer probably the best sushi in town, by the way -...
Pikk 39, 10133 Tallinn, Estonia
Hell Hunt is allegedly the oldest pub in Tallinn making it as traditional as a pub can be. They have a wide selection of beers, including house beer (and cider) and impressive menu for a pub, plus the food is good. In addition they have daily...
A. Weizenbergi 34, 10127 Tallinn, Estonia
First off, I'm not particularly interested in arts, so if I am praising an art museum it is a big deal. KUMU can capture my attention for hours and I've been there a few times, it just never gets old. There's something new featured regularly and...

If you're curious to see how Estonians used to live then this is the place for you. They've basically gathered old farmhouses and homesteads from all over the country and formed a village out of them. Sometimes there's also unusual presentations...
Raekoja plats 1, 10146 Tallinn, Estonia
In Tallinn, we took a bus tour of the city and spent much of our time exploring the Old Town. There was a Russian Orthodox Cathedral and a park to walk through, along with lovely historical buildings. From the top of the hill, we could see...

Halfway between Tallinn and Tartu, Põhjaka mõis (in English, Põhjaka manor) is a rustic manor house that serves fantastic Estonia food in a completely unassuming location. Servers were friendly, the food sourced locally, and the restaurant...
