At long last, snow!

T

he new year brought with it something we haven’t seen in a long time, snow. Tallinn’s picturesque medieval Old Town streets are covered in the white stuff and it’s absolutely lovely wandering through them, hearing the crunching sound below your feet. Those interested in skiing can take part in the annual Tartu Marathon. Or, practice your technique at one of the many parks in and around Tallinn. Skate in Tallinn’s Old Town on Harju street, then warm up in one of the city’s many cosy cafés. Winter has finally arrived!

The 24th of February marks Estonian Independence Day, marking 98 years since the Estonian Declaration of Independence. The occasion is marked annually with the presidential reception and a concert, held in different cities each year. The president gives a speech, which is broadcast live on television, and viewers also enjoy the ironically named “Penguin Parade,” of the who’s who of Estonia arriving at the reception. Happy Independence Day!

A Perfect Pair

In February, guests can enjoy Spanish Campo Viejo wines

Monthly wine degustations at Le Chateau.

Starting this month, restaurant Le Chateau in Tallinn’s Old Town

will be offering selected wines by the glass that are normally only available by the bottle. Let their knowledgeable and friendly staff help you choose your meal based on the wine. “Usually it goes the other way around, you choose your meal and then you pair the wine”, explains Marina Aboltõn, Marketing and Sales Manager at Le Chateau. “We want our guests to have the opportunity to try good wines by the glass from our wine cellar”.

The wines on offer change monthly. In February, guests can enjoy Spanish Campo Viejo wines. The Viura DOC (white Rioja) is a lovely light bodied white wine that works well as an aperitif, or enjoyed with some of Le Chateau’s fish dishes. We tried the salmon terrine with red caviar sauce. The refreshing white paired well with the flavourful terrine. Of the reds, Le Chateau is serving

one lighter-bodied red and one fuller-bodied. Both are Riojas, the Reserva works well with the duck confit, being on the lighter side and balancing with the richness of the duck. The Gran Reserva is an elegant full-bodied wine that is best served decanted. It is aged

two years in oak casks and then a further three years in the bottle in the cellar to round it off. It paired very well with the beef tenderloin in porcini sauce, as well as the sword-baked lamb with rosemary sauce and honey-roasted garlic. In March, we can look forward to two wines from French producer Gabriel Meffre Laurus. Both from Cotes du Rhone, the Blanc is made of 38 Viognier, 27 Roussanne, 20 Grenache, 10 Marsanne, 5 Bourboulence. Enjoyed with Le Chateau’s sole in bearnaise sauce with spicy shrimp ceviche, this combination will warm the coldest night. The Cotes du Rhone Villages AOP is 77 Grenache, 18 Syrah, 5 Mourvèdre and is suggested with the lamb and duck as well.

Monthly wine degustation specials will also reflect the season, so we can expect lighter bodied fruity wines for the warmer season. The specials will continue until 31 January 2017. ■

Nurri café is located close to Tal-

linn’s Stockman on Tartu mantee on your way out to the airport. The café offers light fare and coffee, of course. Of the savoury dishes, try the caesar salad with chicken or shrimp. Pancakes are also a good choice with either savoury or sweet fillings. Try the mushroom or salmon soup. Children also have the option of pasta. There is a large selection of cakes. Among them you will find

two popular Estonian cakes, or as they are known there: Kirju kass and Kass Artur. The cats are of course the stars of the show. All of the cats come from the shelter. Cats are everywhere in the café: on window sills, in the children’s play area, on the bar… You u can take photos of the cats and d tpet them. Don’t worry, their litter boxes are located in anotherr room. The cats have their feeding time e

when food is brought out from m the kitchen. The staff will open n and close the doors for you so that at the cats don’t run out.

Feel-good Favourites Six years and running strong, Lautanen caters to those arriving by sea.

pub TEXT KRISTINA LUPP, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

Lautanen is often the first stop on the way in and on the way out of Tallinn. Lautanen, or table in English is a great success story of a family-run business. Located over two floors in the port area of Tallinn, it caters to a mainly Finnish clientele looking for good, fresh, simple dishes. And this is exactly what Lautanen does well. The collection of plates on display on the wall from regular visitors can atest to this. Anyone that has been to Tallinn will know that the number of places open early for breakfast are

few. Lautanen serves breakfast from 8.00-12.00 and offers warm, hearty dishes like an English-style breakfast. Breakfast sandwiches start at 3.80. Lautanen promises fast service, meaning dishes should take no longer than 5-10 minutes to prepare. The house specialties like the pepper beef or the Lautanen and Premium burgers are client favourites. The pepper beef, coated in freshlyy ground pepper is grilled and served with your choice of side. The burgers are juicy and you will certainly not go hungry. Portions are generous here! For something on the lighter side, the salmon salad with pieces off lightly grilled fish, vegetables,

and mixed greens was fresh and tasty. In summer, Lautanen offer guests a large terrace with music and free-wifi. Eat-in or takeaway. Service is always fast and friendly. ■

Exotic Flavours Tai Boh is a feast for the senses.

thai TEXT KRISTINA LUPP, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

Opened at the end of last year, Tai Boh is the latest funky restau-

rant by the guys that brought you Manna La Roosa. While the latter focused on a contemporary menu merging international flavours, Tai Boh is an Asian fusion restaurant whose kitchen is run by Thai chef Khampan. Normally the words “Asian fusion” would be enough to make you run screaming for the hills, but this menu works. There are in fact a few different menus including a sushi menu and an allvegetarian menu that may even delight the palette of most carnivores. You’re going to want to try a bit of everything and for this there are two tasting platters. We, however, picked a couple of appetisers and mains to share. Don’t skip the Kong Sarong (deep fried prawns wrapped in egg noodles). They not only taste good, but are visually stunning. The chicken satay could have used a bit more grilling to get a nice char, but the satay sauce was good nevertheless. The appetisers are good for sharing, but the mains are plat-

ed more in the way of an individual meal. This does not stop you tasting a couple of bites from your dining companion’s plate. The chili prawns with vegetables actually have enough chili in them that they give off a bit of heat. The favourite dish of the evening was the beef in black pepper sauce. A piece of beef tenderloin was beautifully prepared in a rich and peppery sauce. If there iss still enough room for dessert, thee chocolate fondant or the coco-nut panna cotta are both good d options for the end of the meal. In addition to the varied menu,, the eclectic decor of Tai Boh can--

not go without being mentioned. Every corner of the dining room is filled with strange decor, retro seating, or an aquarium. Service was friendly, fun, yet professional.

Make Your

Hair Shine

The Baltic Guide went to test the new KeyBond haircare system at thee Vanalinna Ilusalong. TEXT THE BALTIC GUIDE TEST GROUP, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

Some women are very concerned

about dry and damaged hair in winter that they just cover it up with hats and scarves. This is the reason hair needs extra care in winter, especially after colouring. Don’t worry, there is a solution at the Vanalinna Ilusalong with new products from Emsibeth KeyBond. The Baltic Guide went to try these out in the salon. The procedure began like any other. “The hair colour was mixed and a capsule of KeyBond was added to the mix. After, the colour was applied to the hair and I waited 40 minutes”, said our tester from The Baltic Guide. The difference between this and

regular colouring is that the colour is washed away with only clean water; no shampoo is used. About ten minutes afterwards, KeyBond conditioner was applied, which was also just rinsed with water. Why should you try KeyBond? It cares for the condition of the hair, protects and moisturises during the hair colouring process. After, hair is shiny and looks really good. This same procedure is great for bleaching and perms.

Before & After

The colour also lasts longer on the hair. And what were the results? “I’m really happy. My hair is truly very shiny, long after the colouring”. ■

The combined effects of honey and turmeric Turmeric and ginger are closely related. It is processed into a yel-

low powder and used as a spice, in particular as the base ingredient for curry. Turmeric has long been used in Asia as food, but also in medicine. Turmeric has been known to improve digestion and alleviate inflammation. It’s grown mainly in India but can be found in Asia and Africa as well. The powder that is produced from the root

goes into juice, capsules, or is added to butter and oil. CurcuMix, an Estonian product, combines three main natural components: honey, turmeric, and black pepper. Together they form a truly strong mixture. The product can be added to tea or coffee, or just as a snack a couple of times a day. You can find it in most health food stores. ■

Most of the LGBT places in Tallinn are nightclubs, meaning they’re for the middle or the end of the night. But what can you do to start proceedings off? There are a number of options, actually. By far the best, for its entertainment singers and performers - at weekends and on special nights, and for its open, friendly atmosphere to all, is Butterfly Lounge. It’s been open for a long time, and in that time very little has changed about it, but you can still go in there and sit in a brightly-coloured, comfortable chair, sipping a well-made cocktail and watching the world go by. It’s also a great place to open the party, with quality food and smiling service. There is a sister club, Club Butterfly, across the street from Viru Keskus. It’s pretty new, but offers the same pastel-coloured positivity as Butterfly Lounge, though in a nightclub setting. It’s on Estonia Pst 1, and you can be sure of pop and dance music to make your weekend go bang, and the same attention-to-detail that makes Butterfly Lounge’s cock-

t’s sometimes said that Tallinn doesn’t cater that well for the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans) community, and, while it’s fair to say that the provision of bars and clubs specifically for anyone from that grouping is pretty thin on the ground, there is still great fun to be had.

tails such a consistent pleasure. Manna La Roosa, just next door to Butterfly, is also an option - but I’m not a fan of the sniffy service or the snobbish elitism of the place. Butterfly is for everyone.

X-Baar Tatari 1, Tallinn b2

For a more personalised experience, you need to go to X-Baar, which preceded and has outlived other beloved establishments like Sauna Street’s Angel, and is Tallinn’s oldest gay bar. It’s a mission to find the door - you need to go through a car park, to what looks like the side entrance to an old building - but once you’re there, the fun starts. Each customer is given a coupon for a free drink, and although the party doesn’t usually get started here until around midnight, once it begins, the pace doesn’t let up.

There are two floors to X-Baar, the ground floor being the one with the largest bar, a small seating area, and a big dance floor opposite a video wall playing the promos to the songs the DJ is playing. Upstairs you will find a chilled spot for sitting and contemplating your night, where it is easy to talk at a respectable volume. As with every gay club, not all customers are LGBT - there are plenty of straight women who come to X-Baar because of the unthreatening, good-natured atmosphere. The truth is, whatever your orientation, this is a nofrills, no-trouble club where anyone can enjoy themselves. As an example of the community spirit that seems to exist here in contrast with some of Tallinn’s other clubs, I have never seen a fight at X-Baar, and I have never witnessed any theft problem people come here to have a good time, not for any other reason.

Rock Café Tartu mnt 80D, Tallinn c4

G-Punkt Pärnu Mnt 23, Tallinn b2

G-Punkt is the Kelis to X-Baar’s Beyonce, the club that is more subversive, and somehow less controlled than its bigger brother. This leads to plenty of latenight or early-morning hijinks, as this club is open pretty much after everything else in Tallinn has closed. As the final port-ofcall for fun, G-Punkt takes its role very seriously as a kind of liberated dystopia, where anything and everything can happen, pretty much unchecked. In summer it can get incredibly sweaty inside the club, due to a general lack of ventilation, though at this time of year that’s not a problem. Also be prepared: there are two poles on the dancefloor, and if you choose to swing around one of

them with your buddies, you will get attention, and at the time of night when G-Punkt is popular, no-one waits to ask before introducing themselves to you. This is, pure and simple, a place to come when you’re tired, but you feel a second wind and you want to use up all your energy on the dancefloor. Forget about customs and conventions, forget about the rum-and-cola stain on that new shirt, and just party into the morning. ■

VISIT I OTEPÄÄ, Estonia’s Winter Capital

TEXT STUART GARLICK, KRISTINA LUPP, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

f you’re coming to Estonia, whether on holiday or a business trip, you might assume that, in the winter, it was better to stick to Tallinn and its cosy surroundings. However, the sheer majesty of a country that is bigger than Switzerland should convince you otherwise. One area of great beauty, which you can’t afford to miss, is Otepää and its neighbouring village, Pühajärve. Otepää is a picture-postcard little village with lovely walking routes all around, and a deep, dense forest in which to be lost with your thoughts. However the attention-grabbers for most tourists are Väike Munamägi, the second tallest hill in Estonia, and the tallest, Suur Munamägi. They are located about an hour’s drive south from Otepää. Whether you’re an experienced skier looking for some piste action in the Baltics, or a newbie wanting a hill that isn’t the Black Run on which to learn your craft, there’s a reason to visit the two Egg Hills, as

If you want a bit of a challenge have a go at the Kekkose Ski Trail (a 14 km run named in honour of the visit, from the then Finnish president Urho Kekkose’s visit to Kääriku to ski), one of the country’s most challenging cross-country trails.

ust on any Estonian travel bucket list. Nestling in deepest South Estonia,

we recommend taking a car to this underrated holiday resort, although it’s perfectly possible to go there by bus – just jump on the Tallinn to Tartu express, then take a connecting service to Pühajärve. We stayed in the Pühajärve Spa Hotel, a three-star destination which overlooks the enormous lake, which of course is completely frozen in winter, and, should you be there with kids, allows them to carry out their Queen Elsa fantasies to their heart’s content. Do you wanna build a snowman? No problem – snow is one natural resource there is plenty of. The spa’s rooftop café gives truly

spectacular panoramic views of the lake, the hills and surrounds. Ensconced in your forest kingdom, you’ll finally be able to forget all your daily working troubles. The food is pretty decent local fare, and certainly fills you up

before or after a long day’s strolling in the gorgeous countryside. There is a pub down below for simpler tastes and an a la carte restaurant on the main floor of the former manor house. The spa’s jewel is the outstanding swimming pool designed by one of Estonia’s master architects Andres Alver. The pools main structure is engineered wood glulam complemented with the use of locally produced birch plywood. Swimming there is certainly a must on any Estonian travel bucket list. In addition to the swimming pool there are also saunas, including an infra-red sauna guaranteed to leave you feeling refreshed and detoxed. There is a considerable list of treatment options, including a chocolate spread that sounds tasty enough to eat while it’s on your body. Beware the massage though – the standard package is a chiropractic massage, and had me wondering if the masseur would pull a joint out of its socket.

Forgot your skis? No proble, sales and rentals are available everywhere.

Must-see sights of the Old Town Kiek in de Kök and the Bastion Tunnels

Raekoja plats

Viewing Platforms Kohtu Platform - offers one of the best views of the Old Town. The impressive tower of the Niguliste Church seems at arm's 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

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

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. Tallinn Old Town h 1-2

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” 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

Raeapteek The Town Hall Pharmacy (Raeapteek) is one of Europe's oldest pharmacies, which still operates in its original location, on Town Hall Square. Tallinn Old Town h1

KGB Museum 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

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

Hop on, Hop off Bus Tour 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.

Paks Margareeta 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

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 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.

Outside of the Old Town 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 have moved in for the large spaces and cheap rent. Restaurants and cafés began to open, and the area continues to grow.

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 by the Russian tsar.

O

n 22 February, KUMU Art Museum is reopening its Soviet wing of its permanent exhibition space, which focuses on Estonian art produced between 1940 and 1991. KUMU curators are reconceptualising understanding of what artists in Estonia made during the Soviet occupation for the first time since KUMU opened its doors to the public in 2006. This change is a welcome and fresh take on Soviet culture in Estonia, reflected in the new name of the display. Previously titled “Difficult Choices”, the display will now go under the name “Conflicts and Adaptations”, reflecting the multiple and contradictory roles artists played throughout the Soviet period, rather than imposing a single grand narrative. Come see perennial favourites and outstanding works by Jüri Arrak, Malle Leis, Ilmar Malin and others in a new light! The new Soviet display opens on 16 February 2016.

KUMU’s most important winter show in the Large Hall (Suur saal) continues throughout the end of February. The exhibition “Ryoji Ikeda: Supersymmetry” was recently chosen as one of the best exhibitions of 2015.

Location KUMU: Art Museum of Estonia Weizenbergi 34 / Valge 1, Tallinn

The show continues until 28 February 2016.

A new exhibition which opened at KUMU in late January examines the fascinating relationship between Impressionist painting and Stalinist ideology. “Romantic and Progressive: Stalinist Impressionism in the Painting of the Baltic States in the 1940s and 1950s” looks at the strange and compelling combination of hard, dictatorial politics and the transformation of the soft, warm modernism of Baltic “Impressionist” painters. Come see what is at stake when Soviet cultural policies are idealised and
