Tallinn on Mondays

 
30.10.2013

In Tallinn on a Monday? Though it's true that many of the city's museums are closed on Mondays, that doesn't mean there's nothing to see or do. Tallinn is the kind of place where there's plenty to discover every day of the week.

Sightseeing tours are one of the most popular ways to start off a visit to Tallinn, especially for first-timers who want to get orientated. Even museums are still an option – some of the city's most interesting ones will indeed be open. Another of the city's Medieval sights, St. Bridget's Convent ruins, stands just a little ways out from the centre and is well worth the trip. 

Remember, nearly all of these activities and sights are free with the Tallinn Card – a great value every day of the week!

Please note that some museums can be closed on public holidays. Be sure to have a look before making visiting plans on public holidays.

A variety of guided and self-guided tours are available in Tallinn, everything from ghost walks to pub crawls. Please note that many of these require booking in advance.

Here's a taste of the activities and attractions that Monday visitors will find:
