WHAT TO SEE
Fun & Relaxation
If your goal is to unwind, de-stress and relax while on holiday, you’ve come to the right city – Tallinn has quite a lot to offer in the way of both sporty and slow-paced entertainment.
For a leisurely introduction to the city, take the Tallinn City Tour or CitySightseeing Tallinn, which uses a double-decker London route bus to let you explore Tallinn at your own pace. Anyone with a tiny bit more energy can get some fresh air and exercise by going on the Bicycle Welcome Tour of Tallinn. It covers the downtown area and all major beauty spots. The same company offers bicycle rental for those who prefer to take a spin though the city on their own. Another option is a guided tour of Tallinn's harbours and bay on the old-fashioned Kajsamoor gaff schooner, an excellent way to see the city and hear fascinating stories about its seafaring past.
Next you can head to the seaside Pirita district, where you have the chance to rent a boat for a quiet, romantic row along the Pirita River, or take a stroll through Tallinn’s beautiful, extensive Botanic Garden. A visit to the garden can easily be combined with a trip to the adjacent Tallinn TV Tower, the tallest building in the country, which offers unforgettable views.
Some other ways to unwind are taking an educational walk around the Tallinn Zoo or going for a swim or a steam at one of the city’s health spas.
In winter, you can also relax with a gentle glide around the outdoor Harju Ice Rink, located right in Old Town, or learn to ski in Pirita.
The FK Centre and Viimsi go-karting track provide more adrenaline-filled fun, while the Nõmme Adventure Park is a great option for adventure-oriented visitors of any age. If bowling and billiards are more your speed, visit the downtown Ku:lsa:l for a round or two. After a bit of shopping, you’ll probably want to sit down and fill your belly in one of the city’s excellent restaurants and cafés. And finally, you can end your stress-free day by dancing until dawn in Tallinn’s most popular nightspot, Club Hollywood.
For anyone looking for even more tranquillity than Tallinn itself has to offer, a Day Trip to Lahemaa National Park is a great option. The picturesque, coastal area is home to stunning landscapes, historical manor houses and quaint fishing villages. A Bicycle Tour of Lahemaa is also available.
And finally, nothing says 'escape' like an island getaway, and Tallinn has some intriguing possibilities for those who want to leave the mainland behind. The Naissaar Cruise with Train Ride will take you just off the coast to an island known for its artillery stations, Soviet sea mine factory and working railway, while a Day Trip to Prangli Island will show you unspoilt nature and traditional Estonian fishing culture.
