February showers bring March flowers

M

y apologies for last month when I went on about how wonderful the snow was and how we could look forward to many winter activities this season. I was wrong. It rained and rained, and then rained some more throughout February that all of the snow melted! I will stop with my weather predictions. Let’s talk culture and events. This month is action packed with things to see and do. Tallinn Music Week is bigger and better than ever. There will be over 200 artists from here and abroad coming to perform in Estonia’s capital city. Enjoy the design market and TMW

Tastes, where different restaurants bring you the best of the city’s cuisine. And wrapping it all up is the Craft Beer Weekend – a two-day festival of local and international craft beers for you to try. Aside from Skype, many things are developed and made in Estonia. The March issue is all about Estonian design. We take a look at locally made products, jewellry, cosmetics, food, and more. There is certainly no shortage of interesting finds.

Warm your soul with a hearty meal.

Estonian Comfort Food Liisu Juures offers traditional cuisine right in the heart of the Old Town.

estonian TEXT KRISTINA LUPP, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

On a cold winter’s day, there’s noth-

ing like a warm, filling meal in a cosy space. Liisu Juures offers just that. The restaurant’s name, means at Liisu’s in English. A meal here is just like a home cooked meal at a friend’s house. It is the place for comfort food and good Estonian hospitality. If you’re dining with friends, why not take a few different appetisers to share to get a taste of everything. To start, try the fried and marinated herring or a sprat sandwich with a shot of vodka. Estonians are known for

their salted or marinated fish. The creamy pea soup is also a good appetiser, but careful with Estonian soups, they are hearty and filling! Estonians also have a love for mushrooms. The mushroom salad with potato and bacon will not disappoint you. The main courses reflect the Eston-

ian people’s love of meat. If you’re still in the mood for sharing the baked pork hock with sauerkraut, dill pickles and baked potatoes is plenty for two. If fish is more your thing, the pike perch with cream sauce is a good option. Our favourite though, is the sausage platter with three different kinds of sausage, including the traditional blood sausage served at Christmas.

Estonians often drink beer with their meal and at Liisu’s you can try some local beer. A glass of house red is a good match with a meaty main course. And vodka of course goes well with anything. ■

wine can be seen in the restaurant’s seasonal menus, and the everchanging wine list. Located in the Old Scottish Club in Tallinn’s Old Town, Leib offer local casual dining both in summer and in winter. Leib has much to celebrate this year. Their sommeliers have been outstanding. Ketri Leis won best young sommelier in the Baltics and came in second place in the Estonian competition. Oskar Pihlik won best beer sommelier in Estonia. The restaurant won seventh place among Estonia’s 50 Best Restaurants and made it into the White Guide Nordic, essentially the Michelin Guide of Northern Europe. We sat down to a warming lunch at Leib with co-owner Kristjan Peäske. “Our guests may not realise that almost everything on our menu is organic and everything is locally sourced”, explains Kristjan. All of Leib’s raw

ingredients come from local farms and producers. We tried the creamy jerusalem artichoke soup; the smooth earthy soup was complemented by a glass of crisp Rosé Zweigelt. The soup is a meal in itself, but a main course was calling. An oven baked Siberian sturgeon fillet answered that call, served with fennel, semi-dried tomatoes and a creamy sauce. The work doesn’t stop at Leib. In February they closed their doors to renovate and renew the interior of the restaurant. While we haven’t seen the results yet, Leib awaits vis-

itors at the beginning of March with a fresh interior and open arms. ■

TEXT KRISTINA LUPP, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

Elevant has brought Indian cuisine to Tallinn for 17 years. There

are not many places in the city that can boast the same success. “Many clients that came here as kids with their parents are now coming with their friends”, says Kerli Noormänd, manager at Elevant. What’s the secret to their success? Good food and a charming atmosphere. The menu at Elevant hasn’t changed much since the restaurant opened. It features different dishes from all over India and boasts classic Indian cuisine with a European twist. Elevant offers a “Wild Menu” with wild boar and moose curry dishes, something that you wouldn’t see in India, let alone at other Indian restaurants in Tallinn. Choose between different curries, with something to suit every taste - hot, mild, vegetarian, meat or seafood. If you want to try a bit of everything, have a thali, which gives you a selection of either appetisers, vegetarian dishes, seafood, or meat dishes.

I began at Shimo Wok n’ Roll Bar (Rataskaevu 9 / Dunkri 11, Tallinn Old Town h1), the new version of the classic drink, food and fun cellar that was situated at the edge of Suur-Karja street. Now it’s on Rataskaevu, up the hill in the Old Town, and it’s still got a similar atmosphere to the old stamping ground of so many Tallinn-based foreigners. Some of the anarchic nature of that old hiding-hole has vanished, but in its place is a larger food menu, a bigger area for sitting and chatting in large groups, and one of the most interesting buildings for a bar I have seen, being on three levels with a cavernous function room at the end. The service is hit-and-miss, but the food is spoton, usually for less than 6, and there’s a good selection of beer for 4 or less. What makes Shimo so important for getting to know others in Tallinn is that it often hosts Friday-night meetings of the Tallinn Couchsurfing group, which remains the best way for local people and foreigners to get to know more about their interests in a fun, non-threatening environment.

It’s so close to Freedom Square that you need only cross the road to get there - and on Saturday nights, there are often belly-dance shows. If that’s not appealing, I don’t know what is. Actually, I do, and it’s thirty feet away from Hookah Palace, still on the same street. Euphoria Hostel (Roosikrantsi 4, Tallinn b1) is a place I go if I want to be with friends in a place that feels, pleasantly, like someone’s living room, with frequent live gigs having hostel guests alongside paying customers perched on bean-bags on the floor. It won’t surprise you to note that the function area,

which often fills up for big events, is also used for meditation events and the like – however there are dance parties there, and if you’re really lucky you can also get a room in the same hostel. Service is friendly and the decor of the room fills you with optimism. Surely that’s what going out in Tallinn should be all about – going out with optimism, and coming home with money left in your pocket. ■

The Estonian cosmetics industry

con continues to grow with more producers and products popping pro up eevery year. The quality of local cosmetics has improved as their cos popularity spreads throughout pop northern Europe. nor We W wanted to find out more about Estonian cosmetics, so The Baltic Guide visited Pillerkaar, which sells only locally-made cosmetics. Their shop in Solaris (located right in the heart of Tallinn, near the Estonia Theatre) opened last year and the amount of Estonian producers and products available has only grown since. Now, Pillerkaar sells products from over 30 different Estonian cosmetics producers. “We now know that the Estonian market has become competitive and there are new products available every month”, explains Marju Sepp, owner of Pillerkaar. “We’ve seen different producers as well as the development of specific products this year- products have become more complex. For example, we have a good selection of eye creams, face serums, face masks, as well as shampoos and conditioners”. The biggest surprise for Marju was that most of these products can be marketed as natural, and it’s also important to note that most of the producers use as many local ingredients as possible. To get you started, here’s a look at three cosmetics producers in Estonia. All three companies are very different in the array of products they offer as well as price range.

most of the components meet Ecosert certification standards. They continue to offer their products at an affordable cost. Puhas Loodus means Clean Nature in Estonian and they use many healing plants, like chamomile, nettles, sea buckthorn, hop, juniper, rosehip, and calendula, just to name a few. Joik is another popular brand

in Estonia. Their product duct range is wide and they ey already have many different lines, including most recently, an anti-ageing series. Their aim is to use as many local Estonian ingredients as possible. For example, Joik soaps contain Estonian rapeseed oil. They also use Eston-ian sea buckthorn oil, oil, different herbs and honey. ho oney. Thanks to the good pricequality ratio, it is a consume consumer onsumer favourite. Joik’s products fall into a medium price category and are popular among even those that otherwise wouldn’t seek out natural cosmetic products. Joik is influenced by centuries old folk wisdom and traditions. The warming foot bath salts with ginger and mustard are inspired by the old Estonian custom of mustard baths to cure a cold.

Puhas Loodus or Orto

is Estonia’s oldest cosmetics producer (in business for 84 years) and continues to be one of the most popular. Ninety-five per cent of their ingredients are natural and

Easter Traditions TEXT MIKKO VIRTA, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

Easter has many names in Estonia:

munadepühad, kiigepühad, and kevadpühad (directly translated: egg holidays, swing holidays, spring holidays). The different names reflect different things, but religious and non-religious. On 27 March at the Open Air Museum there is lots to do. You can paint eggs, weave, play egg games, and of course swing. You can also familiarise yourself with different Easter traditions. Annunciation also falls in March, which is a very important holiday for women. Women were allowed to go to the pub, drink red drinks, and foretell the future. Annunciation is celebrated 25 March at the Open Air Museum with cakes and red drinks. The are 74 buildings from the last few centuries at the Open Air Museum. In addition to barns, there are windmills, fishermen’s net-drying sheds, a school, a pub, a chapel, and a store. The Open Air Museum is located in Rocca al Mare. You can take buses 21 and 21B from the Balti jaam train station to get there. ■

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.

Area: 45,227 km2. Population: approximately 1,350,000 Capital: Tallinn, population approximately 400,000. Other cities: Tartu 98,522, Narva 64,057, Pärnu 42,433 Ethnicity: Estonians 68%, Russians 24.8%, Other 6.5% Language: The official language is Estonian, which belongs to the Finno-Ugric group of languages (Finnish, Hungarian).

A quick history of the city of Tallinn The name Tallinn originates from the Danish occupation (1219–).

Seaplane Harbour (Lennusadam) Küti 17 / Vesilennuki 6, Tallinn By tram: No. 1 or 2 from the city centre to the Linnahall stop. 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 by the Russian tsar. The construction is architecturally unique since it was the largest armoured concrete ceiling in the world at the time of construction.

Patarei Prison (Patarei Vangla) Kalaranna 2-2a By tram: No. 1 or 2 from the city centre to the Linnahall stop.

Kadriorg 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).

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.

The Smartcard or Ühiskaart can be topped up with money or e-tickets and can be purchased from any of the sales points listed at www.pilet. ee. A €2 deposit is needed to purchase the Smartcard. If you are using pay-as-you-go credit, your Smartcard automatically calculates the cheapest fare for you within a 24-hour time period. You must validate your card at the beginning of each journey.

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.
