he trick to surviving the Estonian winter is to stay active. This is what was told to me when I first moved to Tallinn three years ago. So what did I do? I went out, bought myself a pair of cross-country skis and hit the trails. Unfortunately, last winter had so little snow that the annual Tartu Marathon had to be cancelled. I also heard from a friend who had taken part in another ski marathon, that it had become so mild during the race that the snow was melting under their feet. To complete the race, they had to remove their skis and start running! Everyone has their fingers crossed for a beautiful white winter season, well almost everyone. There are those who head to warmer climates, but if you are

Must-see sights of the Old Town TEXT KRISTINA LUPP, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

in Low German, as this was one of the main things soldiers spent their time doing while on the lookout for intruders. Kiek in de Kök dates back to the 15th century. The tower is 38 metres tall, and the walls are four metres thick. Komandandi tee 2, Tallinn B1.

Viewing Platforms Kohtu Platform - offers one of the best views of the Old Town. The impressive tower of the Niguliste Church seems at arms length. The red tiled roofs with white edges are characteristic of Tallinn. Tallinn B1. Patkul Platform - shows both a view of St Olaf’s Church, and part of the city wall. The church was even taller in medieval times and the tallest building in the world in its time. Nowhere else can you see the city wall from a better angle. Tallinn B1. Kiriku Platform - the platform at the end of Kiriku Street faces west and offers a view of splendid and romantic sunsets. Tallinn B1.

Raekoja plats Tallinn’s Old Town was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. The Town Hall Square (Raekoja plats) is Northern Europe’s best-preserved medieval town hall square and was built at the beginning of the 1400s.

Toompea Castle The Tall Hermann Tower (15th century) on the southwest corner of the hill, and the blue, black, and white Estonian flag signify independence and freedom for Estonians. Today, Toompea is the centre of Estonian government and the Riigikogu (parliament). Look for the pink building behind the Russian Orthodox Aleksander Nevsky Cathedral. Tallinn B1.

Katariina käik

Blink and you might miss this narrow passageway off of Vene. Built in 1246, St. Catherine's Monastery (Püha Katariina klooster) is the oldest building in Tallinn. This passageway is also known as the Latin Quarter of Tallinn, and where you can find one of Tallinn’s first Italian restaurants. Tallinn Old Town H 2-3.

Kiek in de Kök and the Bastion Tunnels

St Olaf’s Church (Oleviste kirik) Climb the stairs of the St Olaf Church and you will discover not only the lower town beneath, but also the magnificent palaces facing the slopes of Toompea Hill, and the upper town. The old town of Tallinn is divided into a lower and upper part. The lower town was inhabited by hanseatic traders and the upper town, or Toompea, was inhabited by nobility. Lai 50, Tallinn Old Town E2.

The Kiek in de Kök tower is the entrance to historical underground bastion tunnels. In Soviet times they were supposed to serve as bomb shelters and protect the communist elite in case of a war. Kiek in de Kök means, “look into the kitchen”

Paks Margareeta Fat Margaret (Paks Margareeta) is the most important fortification tower in Tallinn. She was built in the early 1500s. The diameter of the tower is 25 metres and the walls are up to 6.5 metres thick! She was constructed to protect Tallinn from intruders from the sea. Fat Margaret is often the main entrance gate and first encounter for visitors to the Old Town in Tallinn, if arriving by sea. Pikk 70,Tallinn A2.

KGB Museum

Town Hall Square

Kiek in de kök

A fascinating museum about Soviet history in Estonia is located on the top floor of the Viru Hotel. The hotel rooms were under KGB surveillance. The rooms were equipped with microphones, and small holes were made in the walls, where cameras could be placed to take pictures of hotel guests. The museum is only accessible by guided tour. Tours run daily and are held in English, Finnish, Russian, and Estonian. English tours fill up quickly so bookings are recommended. Viru väljak 4, Tallinn B2.

Sometimes you just don’t have enough time to see everything, but on the Tallinn City Tour you just might. Three lines run daily, and best of all, each one passes through the Port of Tallinn, making it even more convenient. The tour operates in ten different languages and is guided by a recorded audio track that follows the sequence of the sights. One ticket is valid for 24 hours. This means that you can travel on all three routes in one day. If you purchase a 24-hour Tallinn Card then your journey on the Tallinn City Tour is free.

■ Pick up the Tallinn Card (available from Tourist Information Kiosks and the A & D terminals at the port) for free entrance to many museums, free use of Tallinn city transportation, including the Hop on, Hop off bus (don’t forget to swipe the card), and further discounts all around town. www.tallinncard.ee

A quick history of the city of Tallinn

Outside of the Old Town TEXT KRISTINA LUPP, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

Kalamaja & Kopli Kalamaja (Fish house) is a historic suburb filled with wooden houses and old factories. Since the 14th century, Kalamaja has served as Tallinn’s main fishing port and was home to fishermen and fishmongers. When the railroad connected Tallinn with St. Petersburg in 1870, many factories opened. The colourful wooden houses you still see today were built in the 1920s and 1930s to house the growing working population. Kalamaja has seen a revival over the last few years as artists and other bohemian types moved in for the large spaces and cheap rent. Restaurants and cafés began to open, and the area continues to grow .

Patarei Prison (Patarei Vangla) Patarei Prison gives an eerie glimpse into gloomy Soviet era prison life. For a small entrance fee you can take a self-guided tour through the dark halls of this old sea fortress that has served as barracks, and then as a prison during Soviet times.

The name Tallinn originates from the Danish occupation (1219–).

1561 Tallinn goes to the Swedish. 1721 The Russians conquer Estonia and Tallinn.

Pirita Pirita is an area located a short distance to the east of the city centre and offers a variety of things to see and do. Start by visiting the ruins of St Birgitta’s Convent ruins (Pirita klooster) whose colourful history dates back to the 15th century. A stroll through the ruins and the surrounds, including the small cemetery, is a moving reminder of the past. Its proximity to the Pirita River and the beach makes it perfect as part of a day excursion. The 2km long beach can attract up to 30,000 visitors a day in summer. Also located a short distance from the beach is the city’s Botanical Gardens (Botaanikaaed) and the famous Tallinn TV Tower (Teletorn), which is a must see as it not only provides a number of interactive exhibits but also offers one of the best views of the city and the district. A starting point for information on these can be found at:

Seaplane Harbour (Lennusadam) Have you ever seen the hull of a real submarine from below? Or better still, crawled through the narrow living and working quarters of a fully refurbished sub from the 1930s? The submarine Lembit was one of two Estonian submarines built in the UK in the mid 1930s. Another sight is an authentic replica of the Short Admiralty Type 184 seaplane, a British two-seat reconnaissance, bombing, and torpedo carrying folding-wing seaplane used in the Estonian War of Independence in the early 1920s and later for mail service. The museum is located in the former seaplane hangars built during WWI

Kadriorg Park is the area that houses the Presidential Palace (Presidendi kantselei) and the Kadriorg Palace (Kadrioru loss), and the KUMU Art Museum. (All located on Weizenbergi). Kadriorg means Catherine’s Valley in Estonian, and dates back to the 18th century. The park and the palace were built by Peter the Great, who apparently helped in its building. As was customary at the time, the main house was named after his wife. There are plenty of other things to see in this beautiful and prestigious park. From the Kadriorg Palace, head straight along the park trail to the Russalka monument, located at the shore of the Gulf of Finland. The famous Song Festival Grounds (Lauluväljak) are only a short walk from the park as well.

Estonian Open Museum (Eesti Vabaõhumuuseum) Visitors can catch a glimpse of the Estonian countryside and village life from the past. The venue has a distinctive rural atmosphere that includes various farm buildings as well as its own church, tavern, and schoolhouse. Several mills, a fire station, fishing net sheds, a dancing area, and a village swing add to the character of the place. Some of the country’s iconic windmills can also be seen. Various demonstrations, displays and interactive activities help bring the past to life and provide visitors with a fun and educational experience.

Vabaõhumuuseumi tee 12, Tallinn.

Debit and credit cards are widely accepted throughout Estonia, especially VISA and Mastercard. American Express is not as widely accepted.

Currency can be exchanged in banks throughout the country. Major Estonian banks include: LHV, Swedbank, SEB, and Nordea. There is a wide network of ATMs in major cities and smaller towns. Currency can also be exchanged at Eurex, and Tavid.

The gourmet burger trend really took off this past year in Estonia, so why not add a gourmet hotdog place to mix. Try a selection of hot dogs, from classic to nacho dog, chilli dog to pizza dog. Sides include French fries or nachos.

Pööbel is located inside of an old wooden house, just behind the Old Town. The interior has been renovated tastefully and the result is a nice cosy pub in which to spend a cold winter’s night. Service can be a little slow, especially during peak business hours, but if you’re not in a rush, it’s worth the wait. The food is good and there is an excellent selection of beers, both on tap and in bottles.

gourmet TEXT MIKKO SAVIKKO, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

Priit Toomits has worked at the restaurant since its opening. The menu brings together his previous experience with different cuisines and local Estonian ingredients. “Ideas come from all over the internet, from other restaurant menus”, explains Toomits. But new creations can be made in Estonia. “In Saaremaa, almost every other wild plant is edible”. “Now, since export to Russia has stopped, we have to be as patriotic as possible. I am more than happy to support local farming”. A part of their cooperative partners are small producers who try to bring in produce regularly. They use local game. “The moose is definitely local”, confirms Toomits. The chef worries however: “If economic development continues as it is, then in ten years we will serve imported food and speak English in the kitchen. Estonian schools fail to teach adequate skills in this area”. Priit Toomits certainly agrees that cooking should be introduced to the school curriculum. While we spoke, Toomits offered a taste of his winter menu,

which included salted herring fillet served with beetroot cream, pickled beetroot and cucumber, quail egg, mayo and potato. “In winter, we must eat Estonian pork”, he says. The main course was a stewed pork shoulder with stewed cabbage with juniper, potato-cauliflower puree and demi glace. The three course menu costs 30 without drinks, and 50 with drinks. ■

There is always room for one more café, especially if it serves good coffee. The café is situated on Harju, right in the heart of the Old Town, so you can sit by the big windows and have an excellent seat for people watching.

Opened at the end of last year, this neighbourhood café has become quite popular among locals. The menu includes breakfast until 12.00 on weekdays and 14.00 on weekends, as well as an excellent selection of dips and salads for lunch. Main courses offer a nice variety of fish dishes.

Rabbit terrine tartine

Going French Frenchy fills the bellies of Tallinn’s French food lovers. TEXT KRISTINA LUPP, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

Telliskivi, Tallinn’s creative hotspot, is continuously growing and expanding with new shops and restaurants. Frenchy is one of the latest additions to the area. Frenchy specialises in French cuisine, a cuisine that has been seriously lacking in Tallinn. It is open for both lunch and dinner, though unfortunately not for breakfast, yet. Enjoy a late morning coffee if you arrive for 11.00, which is when they open. At this time, they are also just pulling fresh croissants from the oven, which have come straight from France. In fact, many of their products, including meat, comes straight from France. In December they were advertising fresh Fines de Claire oysters, a real treat here in Tallinn. Upon my visit I decided to try some classic French dishes. To start, the rabbit terrine tartine (6.50) was a pleasant combination of rabbit terrine on freshly toasted bread and served with salad. I tried the grilled sirloin to really put the menu to the test. Good beef is something difficult to find in Tallinn, but the grilled sirloin did not disappoint. It was served with maître d’hôtel butter and matchstick potatoes. This was truly gourmet comfort food for a cold winter’s night. Ile flottant is the house dessert, poached meringue in crème anglaise.

Service is friendly at Frenchy.

The menu is short, consisting of only a few dishes per course, but this is not a bad thing; for what they do, they do well. The drink list is also short but offers some speciality beers and some exclusive bottles of wine. Service is friendly, and gives you a great chance to practice your French. ■

edicated followers of fashion are people who move to their own rhythm, their minds going in directions as unpredictable as their clothing designs. In this month’s guide to the best Tallinn nightlife, we take a look at some of the unusual bar choices made by creative minds. Fashionistas don’t use a map like more conventional people do, planning routes from street to street. They stick a pin in the map, and then find out later how to get to it. This much I learned on a night out after this year’s ERKI (Estonian Academy of Arts) Fashion Show in Tallinn.

What’s unconventional about the Dubliner is that it’s been part of the fabric of Tallinn’s Old Town for so long that, if you don’t think, you’ll forget about it. The old quirks remain; in spite of it being a fauxIrish pub, the staff are very Estonian (cold and expressionless) and the drinks generic (Guinness, Saku, and unfortunately not even an attempt at stocking imported craft beers, or even the likes of Caffrey’s, when we visited last). If you wait at your table, as per local convention, to be served, you might fossilize, but if you go to order at the bar you’re often met with a blank stare. The dark wood interior feels oppressive. Tables are spread-out, giving an airport-lounge feel. In fact, that’s what it is. The Dubliner has managed the challenging trick of importing the feeling of Birmingham Airport’s ”shall we get one more beer in before Alicante?” end-of-the-road pub to the Estonian capital. So what’s good about it? Well, there isn’t really anywhere else in Tallinn where you can be sure of well-cooked fish and chips or other traditional AngloIrish stomach-fillers. It’s also not expensive, so our advice is, get some food and some basic beers down you, and head for other spots.

anything but the most rudimentary conversation. Baila is not a snob’s nightclub if you want to impress people with your ability to pay for Champagne while making witty banter with the cocktail waitresses, head to Club Prive or Vabank. Rather, it is a spot for happy people who just want to shake their thing, without worrying about how they look. As such, there is a clientele with a wide age-range. If a Pitbull song were a nightclub, it would look something like Baila.

Baila was the third destination in a haphazard but enjoyable jaunt around Tallinn’s Old Town, after an exhaustingly hot fashion show. It replicated the atmosphere of the show, in that it was utterly sweltering inside, but this was mostly caused by the sheer number of sweaty bodies performing moves on the dance floor, which seemed to extend from the space intended for dancing, right out to the door. There were tables and stools or comfy chairs for those needing a rest, although when we were in there, the music was too loud for

of hoppy, frothy German beers. Like its neighbour pub it’s capable of giving a large-ish group a good early part of its night out without hurting the wallet too much. The bar-staff are actually reasonably friendly, and are knowledgeable about what they are serving. Even the toilets, so often the downfall of Tallinn Old Town bars, are clean and well stocked. You risk the occasional run-in with drunken macho Estonian men, but if you stick with your group, you’ll be fine. It definitely shouldn’t put you off visiting this pleasant cellar bar.

Gelsomino Karaoke

We moved across the Old Town to a newer watering hole, to rest our

feet after all that dancing. From a nightclub not for snobs, to a bar that has become known for its elite customers. A friend of this author’s, lamenting that I had not been seen for some time, speculated a few weeks ago that I was ”at Manna la Roosa with [my] posh friends”. It wasn’t true, but it was an evocative picture, demonstrating how a bar that opened a year ago has created a mystique of being ”for” a certain kind of person - an exclusive club without the membership card. As with many establishments in Tallinn, a lot of that mystique is driven by high prices - most of the drinks will set you back at least 5.

However, the atmosphere is sparky, you’ll see lots of very sexy people in artfully creased designer gear, and there is usually a table available for every group. The decor is like the bedroom of a James Bond villain, with tinfoil on the walls and artwork on the ceiling, and the whole ”elegantly-wasted” ethos of the place makes it the perfect end of a night out for fashion-lovers. ■

The pain factor is a bit absurd, bsurd, because somehow w us women will continue ue to wax, pluck, and shave have away our unwanted ted hair, instead of going ng through a few laser er hair removal treattments, which, byy the way, are not ass painful as they used d to be.

DUET laser is one of the best lasers out there for laser hair removal. It uses a vacuumremo assisted technology that assi increases the hair removal inc area; meaning procedures ar aare more effective and ffaster. For example, hair removal on legs can be done in just 15 minutes, whereas with an older laser, it would have taken 45 minutes.

After the procedure, your skin is red and slightly irritated. To soothe the skin after the treatment, the doctor holds an ice pack to your skin for a few minutes. By the next day, the irritation should be gone. The LightSheer DUET laser has two different hand pieces. The larger one is for legs, back, and underarms; where as the smaller one is used to treat more sensitive areas, like face and bikini.

The salon uses Angel Nails brand products.

It had been ages since I had a classic manicure. If you are like me, you’ve probably been going for gel polish manicures because you don’t have to wait for your nails to dry. The gel polish manicure takes the waiting away, but you miss out on the nice hand soak and the thorough cleaning and polishing of your nails. At Sikupilli Ilusalong, you can have it all, because as I found out, their regular nail polish dries very quickly. The salon uses Angel Nails brand products. While they do offer a manicure with gel nail polish as well, sometimes a classic manicure is a nice change of pace. My hands are quite dry in winter, and what was particularly

nice about this manicure was the hand massage before the polish was applied. It left my hands feeling relaxing and moisturised. The salon also uses a pre base coat that is rich in vitamin E. After the polish was applied, I sat for about 5 to 10 minutes while I waited for my nails to dry, then I was on my way. A classic manicure costs 14.

Walking tour: Kassisaba The Kassisaba suburb of Tallinn is like a small village in the city centre. TEXT MIKKO VIRTA, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

The smell of birch wafts through the air, somewhere a rooster crows. We are in the middle of Tallinn, but it feels like we are somewhere in the countryside. Kassisaba (Cat’s Tail) is a small, yet vivid part of the city, located close to the Old Town. You can easily get there by going down the hill from Toompea and crossing Toompuiestee. The suburb’s interesting name has puzzled people for years. In Old German, the road leading from the fortress was named Katzenschwanz (Katze means cat). You can start the walking tour of Kassisaba at the top of Wismari Street near Falgi Park. The park is well kept and has many beautiful oaks and larches. There is a large playground for children in the park with swings and things to climb on. During the Soviet period, the park was named Lastepark, or Children’s Park. Falgi Park got its name from the Toompea Guild Alderman Hans Heinrich Falc, who ordered the building of the park in

1857. The British Embassy is located at the edge of the park. When visiting Kassisaba be sure to walk along the small streets and take in the interesting architecture of the area. Many of the old wooden houses have been renovated, but many remain dilapidated. Here and there you will also see some ultra modern contemporary architectural achievements. The area’s original architecture are the wooden houses, which have high limestone foundations. The houses have nice detailing, both around the windows and doors. Many of the old houses are protected, to preserve the valued milieu for generations to come. The large yards bearing fruit trees are of extra value. If you dare peek into a yard, you will be surprised by what you see. In one yard, there were six old Mercedes! You can stop for a coffee at the Kassisaba Café on Koidu Street. Marie Under, a well-known Estonian poet was born on that same street in the 1800s. Barack Obama quoted a few lines from one of her poems during his visit to Tallinn last autumn. ■

19 Ticket Information

PUBLIC TRANSPORT Tallinn’s public transport system consists of trams, buses, and trolleys. All three use the same ticketing system. In 2013, a smartcard ticketing system was introduced. If you plan on using public transport more than three times, this is your best option. Smartcards can be purchased and topped up at R-Kiosks and are transferrable. The Tallinn Card also allows you to use public transport for free. Both cards must be validated by touching them to the orange card reader. Detailed route plans are displayed at all the stops, or plan you journey ahead of time on-line at: http://soiduplaan.tallinn.ee
