The Changing of the Seasons

W

hat a summer it has been! The weather seemed doubtful a few months back, when it snowed one day in June. Midsummer passed with the same rainy and cold weather one comes to expect year after year. Then it all changed. As we approached the Song Festival weekend, the weather turned for the better. The sun came out, the temperature rose about ten degrees and the Song Festival finished with a very sunburnt Estonian population walking back from the Song Festival Grounds. Then the summer weather continued: beautiful days followed by more beautiful days, followed by, you guessed it, more beautiful days. One might say that Estonians only seem to talk about the weather, but if you live in a country that is dark and cold most of the year, beautiful summer weather is something of a big deal. But, as I write this the days are quickly getting shorter and the weather, just a little colder. The hoards of tourists are starting to come in smaller numbers and the patios and terraces are closing one by one.

September is a time for reflection and for new beginnings; the end of the summer, and the start of a new a new school year. It’s harvest time. The annual autumn festivals are beginning. This is one of the better times to visit Estonia, for just these reasons mentioned above. Flip through the pages of this month’s issue for a guide to everything that is going on this month in Tallinn, and throughout the country. We also have a guide to manor houses in Estonia. What better way to spend a weekend than at one of Estonia’s restored manor houses, many of which have great restaurants too. Turn to our nightlife page for all the details for a great evening out. And look at our restaurant page for all the latest details about Tallinn’s new restaurants.

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.

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 H 1.

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.

Tallinn Old Town H 1-2.

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 book 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 guide 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 to Tallinn city transportation, including the Hop on, Hop off bus (don’t forget the 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. From 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.

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.

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.

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.

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:

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.

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.

Lunch or Dinner? Fahle is perfect for any occasion, any time of day. TEXT KRISTINA LUPP, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

Self Väike-Karja 8, Tallinn Old Town I2 This is Tallinn’s first gin bar and tapas restaurant combination. It’s a great place to come for an aperitif and some light snacks, or try something more filling. Chef Angel Alonso is from the south of Spain, so you can expect good seafood. We have yet to try it, but have heard nothing but good things so far.

Frank Sauna 2, Tallinn Old Town I2 At long last, a bistro in Tallinn, or is it? Frank’s extensive and interesting cocktail menu makes this place a good destination for a drink or two, once the evenings get cooler. The food menu offers a full English breakfast, available all day long, as well as a great selection of burgers and sandwiches. We tried the steak with green peppercorn sauce. Be sure to specify how you would like it cooked; otherwise you will get it quite well-done. As a side, you can’t go wrong with the steamed spinach with garlic.

T

he restaurant takes its name from the old factory building in which it is located. The Fahle name comes from Emil Fahle, a German born man who arrived in Tallinn at the age of 20 with only five roubles in his pocket, or so the story goes. He was a smart and confident person who became the director and principle shareholder of the Fahle paper mill, thus becoming one of Tallinn’s most known and influential businessmen. Fahle Restaurant & Café has had great success because if its multifaceted service approach. At lunch, the café is full of locals enjoying a meal at their lunch breaks. Fahle offers a short daily menu in addition to their regular menu. The daily menu usually includes a soup, and main dish. Service is excellent at Fahle. During the busy lunch period, drinks and food were served very

quickly. The servers are friendly and knowledgeable, and treated everyone as a regular. Bread and butter, along with oil and vinegar are available from the side table, to which you help yourself at lunch. For lunch, I decided to try the goat’s cheese salad. It was served with pine nuts, melon, and strawberries. The sweet and salty combination of the fruit and cheese was a match made in heaven. If you are going for dinner and have a little bit more time for a longer meal, be sure to try the beef tartar, made with Estonian beef. Then have the duck breast as a main, which comes served with a wild cherry sauce. Fahle is also available for bookings for large groups, where you can organise dinners and meetings. There is also a cigar room. ■

Tokumaru Estonia pst. 9, Tallinn (Solaris 2nd floor) B2 Brought to you by the guys behind Momo, a Japanese food store offering daily lunch specials (J. Kunderi 29, Tallinn), Tokumaru is Tallinn’s latest Japanese restaurant. Tokumaru specialises in ramen, but there is also a good selection of sushi to be had. The interior is modern, and if you can take your focus away from the large open kitchen, a wall of windows offers a nice view.

V – Vegan Restoran Rataskaevu 12, Tallinn Old Town H1 Vegetarians and vegans need not fear having to eat only potatoes while visiting Tallinn. V is Tallinn’s first vegan restaurant, offering as range of raw and cooked veggie dishes. There is also a good range of gluten-free dishes. On our visit, we tried the mint and pea puréed soup as a starter, which was then followed by a properly spicy tofu and veggie dish.

Location Kohvik Troika Mere pst. 5, Tallinn B2

roika has been an institution in Tallinn for Russian cuisine. Those who have been, have certainly enjoyed the show that goes along with the pouring of the vodka, and the traditional Russian dancing. Troika’s café, located just outside of Tallinn’s Old Town is also worth a visit for a more casual dining experience. And while the weather stays warm, the large patio is a great palce to people watch. Kohvik Troika has the same warm service you would expect from their Old Town location. The menu is more extensive than you would expect from a café. There is a great selection of soups and appetisers to start, including a salad bar option. Kohvik Troika is also good for dinner, which is when we visited. You can choose from a selection of dishes –from dumplings to pierogies, pancakes to classic Russian dishes. In other words, it’s

good to come with a few friends so you can try a little bit of everything. On our visit we started with the salted pickles that came served with sour cream and honey. Have a shot of vodka with these to whet the appetite. We tried the pancakes with caviar and sour cream, as well as the pancakes with mushroom sauce. The presentation was unexpected. The pancakes with mushroom sauce came packaged in little bundles and the pancakes with caviar were served as cones that presented each of the elements of the dish. Be sure to save room for the dumplings. Kohvik Troika has many different types of dumplings, including even bear meat dumplings. The dumplings come served in a broth with a selection of sauces on the side. Main dishes include the Emperor’s Salmon, Chicken Kiev, and a Filet a la Stroganoff, among others. Prices are reasonable, with main dishes all costing below 13. ■

The Last Nights of Summer O

ne thing you’ve got to remember when planning a night out in Tallinn is to plan according to your budget. Get drinks for you and your friends at the cheaper bars, and the more expensive places begin to seem like better value. There are plenty of nice bars that won’t chew up your salary but are a nice change from the Old Town norm. You can find fun at night in a whole host of places, in a short walk from the Kala Sadam to the Rotermann Quarter. Kanala Kalasadama 6, Tallinn A2.

Starting at the tip of the Cultural Kilometre, Kanala is a fine outdoor bar, set up in a former workshop space next to Kultuurikatel, which is going to be a fascinating cultural incubator. For now, though, we have the more down to earth thrills of

Kanala, where anything can happen. There have been guest DJs, theatrical performances in the adjoining Kultuurikatla Aed, pizza workshops, and baked potatoes to help line the stomach late at night. I was in a hot tub here at 5am at the beginning of the summer, in an example of a very Estonian pleasure.

Klaus Kohvik After the summer season passes and Kanala winds down, Kohvik Klaus is a classy place to pass the late evening, and although the service leaves little to be desired, book in advance and you can sample some fine wines and excellently prepared salads, overlooking one of Tallinn’s finest views, the northern coast. The sofas are comfortable; the fulllength windows allow you to keep warm while viewing the impressive landscape.

ing, with a smoking area and garden outside, hosts parties all year round, and is the perfect place for checking out hipster trends while enjoying some brilliantly-curated music, which, depending on the night in question, might be old-school ’80s rap, modern-day industrial music, or anything in between. The space is often hired by companies or groups for special parties, and although it can be closed depending on the day, you can be sure of a great party. Take cash, as though the drinks are cheap, they have no card machine.

and swanky shops and restaurants, you might usually make a beeline straight for one of the brightly-lit cocktail bars. On this occasion, don’t. You want your money to last all night? Go to Protest. One of Tallinn’s liveliest bars, it’s been running, in pretty much the same shape, for the entire three years I have been in Tallinn. Customers know what they will get when they come here - locals know to come here because it stays open all night and sells beer and spirits at a reasonable price. It also stays open late at weekends. Get your drinks rounds done here - it’s cheaper than Hetk, where you’ll go next, and Protest is a fine place for drinking and conversation to come together. Protest has comfy sofas, but it can also get very crowded at weekends, so make sure you have sharp elbows on the way to the bar. Also, if you’re a tourist, be aware this is an unvarnished experience - this is a drinkers’ bar, where the conversation is good and the music not too loud, but you have to be respectful of local traditions and customs when chatting to your mates. If you do that, you’ll make friends and have a fine time - just like I did when I came to the bar as a holidaymaker four years ago.

Hetk Roseni 9, Tallinn B2

The on-pointest of the on-point, Hetk opened last year with a new look, the

building having previously played host to a hard-to-love dive bar. The difference could not be bigger with what we have today. Hetk is a comfy bar with big sofas on the lower floor, exceptionally good barfood, and an upper floor that is even more favourable for chatting, the bench seating encouraging groups to get together. The bar, right from the start, sold itself on the way it chose the best local DJs. This is still true these days, and although you may have to pay up to 10 on a day when a big name is behind the decks, it’s well worth it when you get inside. It may attract Tallinn’s hipster population, but it’s a place for everyone. The only drawback is that the drinks - including a vast selection of imported beers - are expensive, but people come here to dance, and as it can be so hard to make yourself heard in the echoey shell of a building, that’s what you should do - maybe in the bar’s vast outdoor area on a warm evening. ■

Estonian Manor Houses TEXT MIKKO SAVIKKO, PHOTOS

Most of the Baltic German owned manor houses are located in Estonia. Together, there are 1245. If you add church manors and manor dairy farms, then that number rises over two thousand. About one third of these manor houses have been preserved. The history of Estonian manor houses dates back to the thirteenth century, when the crusaders reached the coast of the Baltic Sea. The first 500 manor houses were built while churches were being built at the end of the Middle Ages. Of these, about 100 were suitable as stone forts, but were later destroyed during the war in the 16th century. Construction of the mighty estates began at the end of the 18th century and continued for about 150 years. The architectural style of the manor houses is comprised of baroque, classicism, and jugend. The manors were assigned to noblemen, who ruled almost the entire land, and one of their best sources of income was the sale of vodka to the Russian army. The heyday of the manors lasted until the beginning

Vihula Manor

of the First World War. The first attack on the manors was in 1905 when sailors and workmen rebelled and destroyed about 150 manors. Estonian independence in 1918 and the land reform of 1919 saw the end of the manor rule, and their owners were left with more than a few hectares of land and the main houses. Some of the manors were turned into parish houses, schools, and kindergartens. Together, 60 of the profit yielding land was

Sagadi Manor

transferred throughout the country, including, for example, 225 vodka factories. The link to the historical owners was broken in 1939, when Germany called the manor lords and their families closer to Poland. During the Soviet period, many of the manors were divided into apartments, while at the beginning of the

1960s, renovation of the manor houses began again. When Estonia regained independence, the ownership of many of the manors changed hands once again. Together, 414 manors have been restored to their original glory. Of those, about 100 are in peak condition and are being used as private homes, schools, parish houses, museums, accommodation, and restaurants. ■

Located on the fourth floor of the Viru Keskus, the manager of Tool ja Tee, Kaja Heinsalu, got the idea for the massage centre from Asia. “There are people that have become used to going for a foot massage while shopping”. Elve has worked as a masseuse for four and a half years. She says

that there are about 95 visually impaired masseurs in Estonia. Tool ja Tee is the only massage parlour where you can be massaged by a blind person. Tool ja Tee’s most popular massage is the relaxing foot massage, which is perfect to enjoy while shopping. The half hour procedure massages every toe and muscle. “Feet reflect the person. There are

many sensitive areas in the foot”, explains Elve. After the summer, weary feet are warm and soft. During your foot massage, you are offered herbal tea, which just goes so well with the massage. The half body massage goes from the buttocks to the neck. Elve’s technique is professional and strong. After working behind

a desk all day long, a massage leaves you feeling nice and relaxed. Elve’s hands will also massage your neck, back, and hands. After any massage you will feel warm and calm. Tool ja Tee gets bonus points for their tranquil atmosphere. You almost forget that you are in Tallinn’s city centre in a large shopping mall. ■

Freya Estetica beauty salon is located in the heart of Tallinn, close to Viru väljak in the Old Town. The wide range of packages includes everything from permanent makeup to all the latest beauty and wellbeing treatments. The Baltic Guide went to find out more about the skin rejuvenating Exilis procedure. This procedure can be used for the face, neck, and even the entire body. This ultrafast and safe skin lifting and rejuvenation procedure reduces fat and cellulite. It is a combination of therapeutic radio frequencies, ultrasound and cooling. After just two hours, wrinkles on the face and neck were visibly reduced. For the best results however, regular visits are recommended. After the initial facial cleansing, your skin feels warm, but is cooled soon thereafter. The procedure is entirely pain-free, as opposed

to mesotherapy. Both procedures affect the underlying layers of skin. After the procedure, drinking water is recommended. The Exilis procedure starts at 40. Skin feels more elastic and wrinkles are reduced. Four procedures for the face and neck cost 476. ■

Take-off is located near the A Terminal. Balloon Tallinn’s manager Sigre Luts recommends that as soon as you see the balloon in the air, make your way over there. The weather is unpredictable in autumn. “While the balloon goes up and comes down in the morning, sometimes the wind can be strong at midday and we won’t be able to go up”. The balloon can fly with winds up to 24 knots. Balloon Tallinn’s team will keep an eye out on the weather and run test flights throughout the day. The flight lasts about 12 minutes, during which time the balloon rises to 120 metres. Thirty people can fit into the basket at one time, though with stronger winds, less people are allowed. The view opens as you go up. You can see Tallinn’s Old Town, as well as over the Gulf of Finland. The 124 metres high tower of Oleviste Church seems rather low from the balloon. “If the weather is clear, you can even see all the way to Helsinki”. Are there risks? “Yes, of course. The balloon has the same risks as

with any flight”, explained Sigre Luts. The balloon is attached to the ground with a cable, which can hold up to 42 tonnes. This is controlled electronically from the ground. There are also staff in the basket. The material of the balloon is bulletproof, meaning that it won’t break easily. The material is the balloon’s most expensive part”, explained Sigre.

The balloon is made in the UK at Lindstrand Technolgies Ltd factory. The company’s creator is Per Lindstrand from Sweden, who made a record flight with a hot air balloon over the Atlantic Ocean and earned fame for designing one of the lightest aircrafts. The balloon in Tallinn is not a hot air balloon, but is lifted from the ground with helium. The difference between a hot air balloon and a helium balloon is big. “A hot air balloon makes a journey from one point to another. The length and final destination of the flight are usually estimated, because the hot air balloon is very sensitive to wind. There is no fire in the helium balloon, as there is in the hot air balloon. A flight with Balloon Tallinn is easy and even children are allowed. “The basket is even wheelchair accessible”. The balloon is the only one of its kind in Northern Europe, the closest balloon is in Krakov. ■

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
