This year’s Jazzkaar jazz festival will bring Grammy Award winning singer Gregory Porter and saxophone legend David Sanborn to Tallinn. During the week-long festival you can see some great Estonian artists too. The festival takes place April 17-26 at the Telliskivi Creative City.
02 Walpurgis Night in Tallinn Walpurgis Day in Tallinn is a regular holiday, with the same kind of carnival type feeling. In the countryside, it’s celebrated with bonfires and sometimes you can even see a witch.
Hilma af Klint (1862–1944) was a pioneer in abstract art, whose works were not seen by the public for a long time. The central elements of the Swedish artist’s work are colour, mysticism, souls, and spiritualism. The exhibit, on loan from the Stockholm Moderna Museet runs from March 13 to July 7.
04 Horror and Fantasy The Haapsalu Horror and Fantasy Film Festival (HÕFF) will take place from April 23-26 in the small seaside town. The festival features horror, fantasy, and science fiction films.
05 Student Party The Tartu Spring Days will take place April 27 to May 3, bringing thousands of students together in the university town. The programme includes a dance marathon, pub rally and the traditional boat race on the Emajõe River.

fter a mild winter, signs of spring can already be seen throughout Estonia. Early spring flowers are starting to appear from the ground, the snow has melted away, and the days are getting longer. But probably the surest sign that summer is just around the corner is that on sunny days, everyone wants to be out on the patios enjoying the sun. Another sign of summer is that the festival season is starting. In April, you can enjoy some great concerts at the annual Jazzkaar jazz festival, as well as during the Estonian Music Days.

Must-see sights of the Old Town 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.
Text kristina lupp, Photos Andrei Chertkov
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.
Raeapteek The Town Hall Pharmacy (Raeapteek) is one of Europe's oldest pharmacies, which still operates in its original location, in the Town Hall Square. Tallinn Old Town H1. Photo: Anneli Tandorf
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.

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.

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.
n 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

Küti 17 / Vesilennuki 6, Tallinn By tram: No. 1 or 2 from the city centre to the Linnahall stop. From there, by foot along the Cultural Kilometre trail.
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.
Kalaranna 2-2a By tram: No. 1 or 2 from the city centre to the Linnahall stop. From there, by foot along the Cultural Kilometre trail, just before the Seaplane Harbour.
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
The name Tallinn originates from the Danish occupation (1219–). 1285 Tallinn joins the Hanseatic League. 1346 The Danish sell Tallinn to the German Order. Toompea was divided among princes and bourgeoisie in the upper-town and craftsmen in the lower-town. 1721 The Russians conquer Estonia and Tallinn.
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:
1918 Estonia declares independence and Tallinn becomes its capital. 1939–44 Russians and Germans occupy Tallinn. 1944 The Soviet Army bombs Tallinn in March and causes extensive damage. 1400 people are killed.

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). 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.

restaurants n Mane
n Kuus Hernest
n Café Enflammé
Caucasian food made its way to Estonia during the Soviet period and has stuck around ever since. But we’re not complaining – grilled meat, kebabs covered in lots of onions, and of course dumplings, are just some of the reasons you should try the Armenian cuisine at Mane. Bring a friend or two along and share a few dishes.
As the website states: if it matters where your food comes from and you like a cosy café, this is the place for you. Focusing on local ingredients, Kuus Hernest or Six Peas is open daily and even serves brunch on Sundays. We haven’t had the chance to try it yet, but we’ve heard good things.
This new café wants to be the go-to French café. They specialise in omelettes and crêpes, but also offer quiches and salads. Café Enflammé also has daily specials and a good wine list. The atmosphere is warm and cosy, everything you would expect from a Frenchstyle crêperie.

The beautiful yard and design of Umami is worth the trip itself to the restaurant, located a little ways from Tallinn’s city centre. The house is designed in a 1930s villa style, furnished with retro Scandinavian furniture. Even the speakers at Umami have been refurbished. “We are playing with vintage”, told Kristjan Päeske, coowner of Umami. The house itself is from the 1930s and Kristjan explained that the owner had always wanted to turn it into a restaurant, something that suits the house so well now. Umami is the fifth taste. It’s those flavours like mushroom, tomato, and Parmesan. “At Leib we focus on 100% local cuisine, but at Umami we can have a little fun with it”, explains Kristjan. “We still use local ingredients whenever possible, but the menu incorporates more international cuisine”. Come for lunch or dinner. Umami has weekly lunch specials that are always interesting and tasty. There are also a few vegetarian dishes, and Kristjan assures that some other dishes, like the curries, can be made veggie as well. And as Kristjan is a sommelier, you can be assured of an excellent wine list. In the summertime, the large backyard is open for probably one of the best outdoor dining experiences in the city. Inside, there is a ‘parents with children’ dining room, where kids will stay entertained in the playroom and parents are not too far away. n

Masha restaurant is maybe one of the best-kept secrets for Russian food in Tallinn. They have all of the favourites like borscht, blinis, dumplings, zakushkas, stroganoff, and chicken Kiev. The restaurant is decorated with a modern, yet cosy style and wooden furniture made especially for the restaurant. Here, you will understand the true meaning of Russian hospitality, with large portions, friendly service, and great drinks list, with of course, a great selection of vodka. I decided to try the blinis to start. A large blini, or fluffy pancake came served in a cast iron pan, with a plate of toppings on the side. I went for the blini with red caviar, sour cream and onions, but it can also come with smoked fish or mushrooms.
For the main course I had the chicken Kiev, which did not disappoint with its rich herbed butter that came pouring out with the first cut. And for dessert, as if there was any room for it, I just had to try the quark pancakes, a personal favourite of mine. These are blinis made with curd cheese and served with jam. Come with an empty stomach for a truly great meal with great Russian hospitality. n

n Meat & Wine
n No99 Restaurant
If you’ve lived in Estonia for any length of time you’ve probably realised that the quality of the local beef is not consistent. Another steakhouse in Tallinn is therefor a welcome gift. Meat & Wine imports beef from Australia and the US and cooks various cuts on their Josper grill. The décor is a bit cheesy, but don’t let that put you off, the steak is worth it.
The restaurant/café at one of Tallinn’s best theatres is under new management. Come for their daily specials, or try something off the regular menu. It’s a favourite lunch spot for many locals and the food compliments the atmosphere.

Just like many other cities, street food is taking over Tallinn. We’ve put together a list of some of the city’s best places to get your street food fix.

n Estonian Burger Factory Pärnu mnt 41a, Tallinn B1-2.
The gourmet burger trend has a really taken off in Tallinn. We finally had a chance to go and try the burger place everyone has been talking about and here’s the verdict: tasty burgers, but be warned, they are big! The menu offers many different kinds of burgers, including the “Angus and Black Bread”, which adds a bit of an Estonian twist.
n Burger Box Kopli 4, Tallinn A1.
Burger Box is not your regular burger joint – this is burger place with an Asian twist. What does that mean exactly? Think pulled pork burger with crispy kim chi fries on the side. It was not quite open at the time this article was
written, so we haven’t had a chance to test it out, yet. Burger Box is neighbours with Põhjala Brewery’s Speakeasy, so you won’t have to go far in the cold for a great beer, or vice versa.
n Papa Joe’s Sadama 25/4, Tallinn A2.
Located in the port area of Tallinn, Papa Joe’s Falafel has a small menu of vegetarian and meat dishes. Be sure to try the grilled halloumi and sujuk wrap. The falafels are prepared while you wait, and the friend-
ly staff is always chatty and eager to tell you more about the food.
n Momo Kunderi 29, Tallinn B3.
Momo is more a Japanese grocer, than a restaurant, but they offer delicious daily specials that you can eat-in or takeaway. Every day a new dish is offered, like Japanese vegetarian curry, chicken teriyaki, fried prawns with spicy Japanese mayonnaise, or salmon sashimi, just to name a few. All dishes come served with rice.

n Square Kebab Vabaduse väljak 9, Tallinn Old Town J1.
This is the place to come to get your fix of kebab in Tallinn. Or, if you’ve never tried a calzone kebab, here’s your chance. Located under Freedom Square, we only wish this place was open later too.
n Kaarmanni Kauplus / Road Food Vanaturu kael 8, H2.
The owners of Olde Hansa, Tallinn’s favourite medieval restaurant opened a small grocery store
in the Old Town. What’s better is the takeaway street food counter that’s open at the front of the shop, where you can enjoy warm sandwiches from 11.00 onwards.
n Bueno Gourmet Telliskivi 60, Tallinn.
This is where you come for a normal sized burger in Tallinn, and this writer’s favourite burger in the city. Located in a food truck that mainly stays in the Telliskivi Creative City, the small menu offers a nice selection of warm sandwiches as well. n

But what about when you’re ”out-out”? When you need the hit of positivity you can only get from being in a sweaty room with 200-300 people jumping to EDM music? For those times, you’ve got to go for the giants.
Club Hollywood Vana-Posti 8, Tallinn Old Town I1.
The classic guilty pleasure, Hollywood is the place no Tallinner will admit enjoying - but regularly filled to capacity at weekends, someone must be. Hollywood’s ranks are swelled in the summer by a regular trickle of tourists, drawn to the club by its central Old-Town location. There are regular events, such as the monthly Grind drum-andbass gathering, that tend to fill the old Stalinist Sõpruse Theatre. It was at Grind that I saw the best and worst of Club Hollywood. Queuing for two hours to get in is never a pleasant prospect, and there were numerous times in that queue when I hoped the club might send someone out with warm drinks for the punters. But, of course, this is Tallinn, and you’ve got to cowboy up and fend for yourself. Finally getting into the club, the building’s versatility becomes clear. There is a big dance floor, surrounded by standing areas and upstairs you can watch the action. It’s almost like the building’s Russian architects planned a nightclub before the time. There is plenty of space to move around, and the wait is never too long to get served. Overall, it’s a bit like a music festival in a muddy field. A sprightly 23 year-old will revel in the experience, feeling it’s the ideal environment in which to hear music, make new friends, and get off with old
friends. But as soon as you cross over into your thirties, getting sweaty while a guy behind the mixing desk instructs you to ”make some noise” can seem a bit offputting. Partying at Club Hollywood is a young person’s game. If you are one of those, you will not find your life mate, but you will have a good time with similarly uninhibited people, provided you’re not after any subtlety.
Club Privé Harju 6, Tallinn Old Town J1.
Privé is seemingly a smaller brother of Club Hollywood, but somehow they’ve managed to give it more of an inclusive, adult, spin. It might be the relatively friendly security guards stationed on the door, or the way that a full ticket gets you into not only the main part of the club, but also into one of the lounge areas (the other lounge is for VIPs), but the place makes one feel like you’re being welcomed and asked, rather than expected, to enjoy your night. There are frequent guest DJs, as at Hollywood. However the music rarely deviates from the regular chart fare, and that is what the crowd, by and large, wants to hear. Although still a young-ish

clientele, people who go to Privé are far more likely than Hollywood visitors to be in their thirties, and as such, are a lot more musically-conservative. You’re likely to hear a few nineties classics alongside ”Uptown Funk” on a Saturday night, but aggressive dubstep, for example, is a rarity. It might be all the better for that. Drinks are about the same price as in Hollywood, but you don’t feel like you’re being fleeced here, because you can enjoy your drinks a lot more when you feel relaxed. The dancing girls and trapeze artists are consistently impressive; only the best are hired. I’m perhaps painting a picture of a staid place – Privé isn’t that. You’ll have a lot of fun here, but without any of the baggage or hassle of standing in the crowds of Hollywood. You get dressed up for a night out hoping to feel special when you go somewhere, and Privé delivers that in spades. n

Get the look – Stylist tips Text Kristina Lupp, Photos Andrei Chertkov
Basic rules: Choose the right foundation that gives your face a fresh glow. Eyebrows, like always, are important in framing the face, so keep them shaped. You can always go brighter with lip gloss, but look for ones that are less glossy. The hottest colours this season are: old school pink, bright red, purple orchid, and sultry pink. Choose the one that is right for your skin tone and hair colour. And always keep your make up essentials nearby in your purse for a quick touch-up if you need.

n Near the port:
For wavy and voluminous hair: 1) Crimp the roots to add volume. It gives hair that standing effect and makes it easier to tease. 2) Curl the hair with a straightener, in any direction. 3) Comb out the curls for a more natural look. 4) Tease the hair, which will give the hair a more glamorous a voluminous look. 5) Twist large chunks of hair to make big curls. Use a medium hold spray to keep a natural effect, leaving the hair flowing and elastic, with shine! n

Lennusadam Seaplane Harbour
Text Mikko Virta, Photos Andrei Chertkov
The joint exhibit Sail or Sink, organised in collaboration with the Seaplane Harbour and the Ahhaa Science Centre, gives an overview of the sea, ships, and forces of nature. Sail or Sink features 14 interactive exhibits and delves into
the middle of a whirlpool and the secrets of the mysterious Bermuda triangle. Parts of the exhibit can be bent, folded, and tried in other ways. And what’s better is that you will create waves and whirlpools. This interactive exhibit will keep the whole family entertained for hours.
Insight into the life in Estonia during three occupations (1940-1991) Temporary exhibitions:
Attacks and Migrations
Va na -K
Diving into the Waves

NB! You can no longer access the Seaplane Harbour from the Culture Kilometre because the path is being dug up. The easiest way to get there is along Soo Street, where you will have to turn right onto Vana-Kalamaja Street and continue on from there along Küti, Oda, and Kalaranna Streets.
