Tallinn by day

In the beginning of July when our summer holidays were just begun we decided to have a day in Tallinn, Estonia. There’s several ferries that offer rides, the cost and length just differ a bit.

The day was beautiful, sunny and nice and the sea wasn’t very bad (I forgot my acu-bracelets home) as I get seasick very quickly when the sea is rolling. We had brunch at the ferry, it was very good. We even had chocolate mousse as dessert (I once went for it five times since it’s my absolute favorite dessert).

In Tallinn we walked a very short distance to the old city wall tower Fat Margaret where they nowadays have the Estonian maritime museum and it was really great. The exhibition took all four floors and from the top of the tower is nice views over the city.

From the museum we strolled through the old city and had a coffee and cake break in Maiasmokk cafeteria. Back in the 90’s it used to be pretty small but now it’s very nice. We had a table in the small square while we enjoyed our iced coffees under the shade.

After our coffee break we had just enough time to do some shopping so we walked to the Virukeskus where I did first some shopping in the cosmetics shop (which is huuuge) and then we visited the grocery shop downstairs which is awesome. Then we walked back to the ferry and enjoyed our cabin all the way back to Helsinki.

    1. The distance is only 60 km but the ’lunch and shopping’ cruise takes 2h30min or longer depending of the company. There’s also the quick ferries which take 90 minutes but they can be full or Estonian workers, also a bit pricier imo. There was one Estonian ferry (cheap and quick) but I think it died due to Covid19 restrictions.
