Apple Season

H

arvest season has begun, but what I personally notice many of is apples. Coming into the office in September, everyone has a bowl of apples on their table that they’ve brought from their back yards, summer homes, or family farms. By the time November rolls around, it’s fair to say we’ve all had our fill of apples. Apple pie, apple sauce, apple juice, and apple cider fill the market stalls around the country. It doesn’t stop at apples. This time of year is great for visiting markets and attending food festivals in some of Estonia’s smaller cities and towns, especially is you’re a food-lover like me. Check out some of the many events taking place at

the Viimsi Museum of Coastal Folk, like Meat Day (Lihapäev) on September 5, where you can enjoy not only meat, but a buffet prepared by the top food bloggers of Estonia. On September 26, come for Ubinapäev, where you will certainly get your fill of apples with the many apple related events taking place, like apple juice making and apple grilling. No matter what your interests, you are sure to find something in these pages. Read about new restaurants in Tallinn, where to stay active in Tallinn, and venture out of Estonia’s capital and visit the island of Hiiumaa for a beautiful getaway.

■ Wok to Walk

■ Apelsini Raudtee

■ Grill 250

Wok to Walk, a European chain that began in the Netherlands just opened its first location in Estonia. Wok dishes are cooked right in front of you and choose what goes into it. Choose your noodles or rice, add your protein and veggies, then choose your sauce. It’s a great dining option for vegetarians and vegans. Dine in or takeaway.

Apelsini Raudtee, or the Orange Railroad refers to the tracks that linked Paldiski, Tallinn, and Narva that were initially built so that the tsar would have access to fruit all year long. Opened earlier this summer, the old railway building now house a restaurant where chef Marwin Lindeberg showcases international flavours with local ingredients. While we haven’t had a chance to try it, while the weather stays nice grab a seat on the terrace and enjoy!

Big sausages, aged meat, what more could any meat-lover ask for? What’s even better is that they offer suggested beer pairings for their dishes. And vegetarians need not worry, there is something here for everyone. On weekdays enjoy a lunch buffet with different hot dishes, salads, and desserts.

café TEXT KRISTINA LUPP, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

If you’ve spent any time wandering the streets of Tallinn looking for a place to have breakfast, or even just a coffee before nine am, you will know that it’s hard to find something open. Luckily for us in the city centre, Café Lyon opened

a second location in Viru Keskus and they are open from 8.30 on weekdays. As you enter in the morning you are greeted with the smell of freshly baked pastries and coffee. Order yourself a croissant or pain au chocolat (one of the best in Tallinn) and sit down with or take-away a great cup of coffee. If you’re looking for something a bit more filling, they also offer a breakfast menu

complete with different kinds of omelettes. The interior at Café Lyon is modern and stylish. The display at the front counter is filled with wonderful cakes and pastries. It’s almost impossible to go there and not try something. There is ample seating both indoors and out. Service is friendly and professional, though on a busy day, especially

on the terrace you may need to flag someone down. The lunch and dinner menu is everything you would expect from a nice French bistro: French onion soup, frog’s legs, mussels, goat’s cheese salad. If the weather stays nice into September, the large terrace will remain open. The terrace offers its own smaller menu with a selection of different salads and sandwiches or even a burger. Por-

tions are not huge, so it’s not a bad choice for a light lunch. The indoor menu changes seasonally and daily lunch specials are inspired by the best available ingredients. ■

An Estonian Pub Five locations throughout Tallinn means you’ll never go thirsty.

pub TEXT KRISTINA LUPP, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

The newest location of the small Estonian pub chain St. Patrick’s is located right in the heart of the city in the Foorum Centre. The Baltic Guide sat down to have a drink and bite to eat, and to watch the people walk by. The two-floor pub is not only a popular place for lunch among the nearby office workers, but also a spot that attracts a crowd at night. The main floor is bustling, while the second floor is a bit quieter and offers a great city view. St. Patrick’s is unpretentious

and offer the budget-conscious traveller refuge from the more expensive city centre and Old Town establishments. Lunch specials go for 3.20 and are quite filling, though if you want a bit more then try their three-course meal deal for 12.90 where you have a choice between grilled pork, chicken, or pasta, soup or salad, and then a dessert. We tried the schnitzel with oven-baked apples and potatoes. Happy hour takes place from 16.00-18.00 daily and every fourth Saku beer is free. St. Patrick’s has four other locations in Tallinn, with two in the Old Town. The most popular location is the Suur-Karja pub, with its medieval interior, but if you want

to duck the Old Town crowds then try the Vana-Posti location. The location with the best view however is certainly the St. Patrick’s at Merivälja tee where you can enjoy a pint or two at the seaside. ■

With two locations, one in the Bohemian neighbourhood of Kalamaja and the other at Rocca al Mare, Levier Cakery covers two great areas of the city. The bakery offers cakes and coffee, but also light meals for breakfast and lunch. Follow their Facebook and Instagram feeds for delicious images of their different cakes and desserts.

It’s hard to keep up with all the new places opening in Telliskivi and Kalamaja, but for anyone who wants to venture outside of the Old Town, this is the area for you. Restoran Trühvel’s menu is Italian with a good selection of seafood. Come for lunch and enjoy a different special every day if you want to save a few euros.

Live Music in Tallinn Want to hear music? There’s no shortage of places to go at the weekends. TEXT MIKKO SAVIKKO,PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

Amigo nightclub at the Sokos Viru Hotell brings some of the best bands to Tallinn. In September hear the sounds of Eurovision star Tanja or the Estonian rock band Smilers. Clazz jazz club has live music every night of the week and a great menu. Tables can be booked until 22.00 and performers take to the stage around the same time. Music is not only limited to jazz. The summer garden at Al Bastione will remain open in September. Doors open at 19.00 and most concerts are free. Estonia’s best jazz pianists, like Tõnu Naisso, perform at Chicago 1933. There is live music every night. Sossi has a big dance floor awaiting dancers on Friday and Saturday nights. Be sure to get there before 22.00 as women get in free and drinks are half price.

A meal at Art Priori engages both the palate and the eyes.

You can even get in a dance or two at one of Tallinn’s brew pubs. Enjoy live music at the Beer House from Thursday to Saturday in the Old Town and music at the weekends at Kochi Aidad in the port district. Listen to country, rock, and blues at the Scotland Yard pub at weekends. ■

“Would you like a tour of our gallery before or after your meal?” I am asked as I enter Art Priori, as restaurant/art gallery that opened earlier this year in Tallinn. I opted for the tour beforehand. The multi-level restaurant has a few nooks and crannies, including a fabulous private room for group dinners. The main dining hall is located on the ground floor. Art Priori aims to combine art and food, though the food is a work of art itself. The housebaked bread is brought to the table with spotted black butter and black chicken liver paté that I later find out is made black with

ash. The amuse-bouche however is particularly fun, what seems like a homemade oreo cookie, is in fact savoury! The feast for the senses continues as the waiter brings out the first course, romaine lettuce with roasted potato consommé, a softboiled duck egg and tomato. The light, yet earthy flavours of this dish make these simple ingredients come together for a satisfyingly complex appetiser. On the main course, roasted quail with celery root, kale and smoked beetroot sauce come served with feet and all, and yes, it’s ok to eat this one with your fingers. For those that don’t have much of a sweet tooth, this is the place you want to have dessert. I tried the beetroot with chocolate and can only describe it as an earthy dessert. While Art Priori is the kind of place you come to splurge, you won’t leave here feeling hungry. Between the beautiful interior, professional and friendly service, semi-open kitchen to watch all the action, and of course the creative menu, Art Priori is a dining experience well-recommended. ■

Dentistry in Estonia TEXT MIKKO SAVIKKO, PHOTO DENTAL KAARTINEN

All the latest modern tools are used in Estonian dental clinics and prices are low.

Ilkka Kaartinen has worked in Estonia for 15 years.

Ilkka Kaartise’s dental practice has been in business in Tallinn for the better part of this century. Earlier, he worked in Katajanokka, a suburb of Helsinki. On the second floor of the Krediidipank building, the office has a corner view over the tram stop at Narva mnt. While most of Ilkka Kaartise’s clientele is Finnish, the staff at the office speak English. “I do mainly large procedures, crowns and bridge work in particular”, explains Kaartinen. “Compared to Finnish prices, the client saves 50-70”. The same can be said when comparing prices in Sweden, the UK, or even Canada and the US. Estonia uses modern dentistry equipment. One of Kaartise’s newest tools is a laser teeth whitening system. “95 of clients have been very satisfied with the results. Among the younger patients, it’s rare that they experienced any

Personal Experience We asked our English Edition Editor Kristina Lupp who is a Canadianborn Estonian, about her experiences with dental care in Estonia. “I have relatives who have been coming for years from Canada and Sweden for dental procedures, not only for the lower cost, but also the excellent service and modern techniques and equipment used. Me, personally, I have not had to have any major work done, but even a regular teeth cleaning is not only cheaper (compare €60-€80 to $250 in Toronto), but it is also a much more comfortable procedure than that with my dentist back in Canada”.

Studio is also a club where the locals go in order, partly, to avoid the tourists - but it’s also because there’s none of the pretentious invented hierarchy of Vabank or Teater, where you’ll always be treated better if you’re richer or better-looking than the others. At Studio, pretty much everyone is equal. Door charges are low, drinks prices are at least reasonable, and you get to party in an old stone building that goes back centuries. Studio plays carefully-curated music, not cheesy chart pop, but instead dance music chosen to fit the mood downstairs, and upstairs electronic, hip-hop and dubstep

As a friend of mine and I found, the speakers in the club are the best kind available their sound is so defined that they are designed so that, even standing directly below them as we were, it was possible to talk to the person next to you at a reasonable volume. One of the usual problem of clubs is the shouting, and this problem is solved by investment in the sound.

We begin in a club that has taken over all three floors of a turret on the edge of Tallinn Old Town, and sprays fluorescent flashing lights all over the people at ground level on Mere Puiestee, most days of the week. Venus can be quiet in midweek - Tallinn is not Barcelona, and its career-focused inhabitants rarely go out on a work-night, but it lights up on a Friday and Saturday. Described by an Estonian friend of mine as ”the place where local people go to be with their own kind and have a good time without any pressure,” Club Venus is generally a locals’ spot, with the language being mostly Estonian and a smattering of Russian, but you can use this to your advantage, if you’re with a local friend or host, to seem a bit more understanding than your average foreign tourist, and blend in. The drinks are cheap, and though some of the more snobbish Tallinners have complained about the music and atmosphere, it’s like a Spice Girls concert in 1997: filled with independent, strong young

There has been a trend over the past ten years or so for films and television series to depict characters from the undead, be they vampires, as in Twilight and The Vampire Diaries, or zombies, as in Shaun of the Dead and The Walking Dead. Perhaps too many column inches have been given over to the question of how to survive an impending zombie apocalypse. However, there is one place in Tallinn where this information will come in useful. Levist Väljas, based across the road from the popular Tallinn Backpackers hostel, is the last bar standing, for the last man or woman standing. A two-floor former trading house, with a dance floor on top and a bar below, it’s not unusual to pick your way over the sticky floor to a sofa, only to

find that someone is fast asleep on it. What’s the attraction of this establishment that will seem like something on the lunatic fringes of your imagination when you wake up? Quite simply, it’s the only place that stays open so late all year round. In summer, Must Puudel and Sinilind sometimes stay open until 6 or 7, but ”Levikas”, as it’s universally known, is hardcore, and it always does that.

The number of activities in Tallinn continues to grow. For example, walk along the edge of the viewing platform of Tallinn TV Tower, take a ride in a hot air balloon or try your luck at escape games. If that’s not enough, a day at an adventure park or rock-climbing without safety gear are other options to keep you entertained. Here are five interesting activities if you want to try something new.

Hot Air Balloon Ride Balloon Tallinn opened last year to offer visitors a view never seen before of the port area and Old Town. The balloon can take up to 30 people and goes 120 metres above ground. The balloon only goes up with the weather is good, so be sure to check their

Hiiumaa

Estonia’s most forested county is known for its lighthouses and untouched wilderness. TEXT MIKKO VIRTA, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV, MAP EVE JAANSOO

When one thinks of Hiiumaa the first things that comes to mind are the majestic lighthouses, vast forests, and the sea. Hiiumaa is more peaceful than Saaremaa and where one can enjoy peace and quiet at the beach and in the forest. I once drove from Heltermaa Port to the other side of the island and did not meet one person. I passed but a few deer waiting at the side of the road. This says a lot about the feeling of Hiiumaa. Estonia’s second-largest island is home to 8400 people, over a third of which live in the island’s only town, Kärdla. Here are a few attractions and nature reserves you must see when visiting the island as recommended by us and by some Hiiumaa locals. Hiiumaa is a lighthouse paradise. Six of Estonia's lighthouses made the list of the world's one hundred most historically valuable lighthouses, two of which are in Hiiumaa. Tahkuna lighthouse is pictured above.

See traditional farm houses at Mihkli Farm Museum.

Ristna is a great beach

for birdwatching along with Sõrve and Põõsaspea. Ristna

is at its best in October, but one can also visit in winter when the sea rarely freezes. Estonia’s windiest place is also a favourite among surfers. There is a lighthouse and RMK Nature Centre at Ristna too.

2

Kõpu Lighthouse. One

of Hiiumaa’s most important attractions is the Kõpu Lighthouse, which is one of the world’s oldest lighthouses and the first one of its kind on the Baltic Sea. The first fire was lit there in 1531. You can go inside the lighthouse too. Kõpu Cape is partially protected by the rich variety of different species of vegetation not found anywhere else on the island. Western Estonia’s highest point can also be found at Kõpu (68 metres above sea level).

3

Vanajõe Valley. A river flows through this deep valley and a rare breed of mink has made a home along the river bank and has lived in Hiiumaa for many years.

4

Sõru. Hiiumaa’s most southern point is an excellent nesting spot for birds where you can find many rare species. From Sõru Port, take the six kilometres long ferry ride to Saaremaa.

Sääretirp is a long and

fantastic nesting spot for birds. Reeds fill the bay at Käina and in autumn it becomes home to thousands of ducks, geese, and cranes. There is a bird watching platform in Orjaku and a nature trail that follows the shoreline of the bay. Kassari Island has many unique beaches and juniper meadows. Avocets, sandpipers, and other rare species of birds can be found at the sea shore of Kassari Island.

Hiiumaa “Eiffel”. It was one man’s dream to build a 31.4 metres tall tower (1/10 of the height of the Eiffel Tower in Paris) and it has now become one of the island’s most recognised landmarks.

Kõrgessaare Coast is

another good nesting place for birds. Its worth a visit in summer to see the Kõrgsaare Orchid Trail, which is home to tens of species of wild orchids. ■

How to get there? You may run into s ome interesting animals on the road.

Take the ferry from Rohuküla Port, which has several daily departures. An 20-kilometre trip to Heltermaa lasts one hour and 15 minutes.

Locals Recommend Three island locals, either living or born in Hiiumaa gave The Baltic Guide some tips about their favourite places in Hiiumaa. Harri Rinne, part-time resident of Hiiumaa, musician, writer, songwriter. My favourite place is my terrace with a view over the sea, but this is meant only for me. I have spent 17 summers and sometimes spring, autumn, and winter. Hiiumaa has an astonishingly-varied natural landscape and

there are places I haven’t even visited. Places and their atmosphere can be rated by the events that are organised there. There is a jazz festival in the boat shed, there are exhibits in old electrical buildings or even Reigi kirikla, dancing in barns. There are different events held in the lighthouses too. If I had to choose it would be Kalbaldi Sands. There are people on the island that don’t even know about it though it’s visible from Google Earth. It is ten-hectare beach in the middle

of the forest. It’s a place where nothing grows, giving it a sense of magic, an untouched place. Second place would go to Saaretirp, the narrowing cape among the junipers with a trail that stretches all the way to the sea. In third place, I would mention the local Eiffel Tower. One man’s dream was a wooden tower with, at its base, the the foot of it a garden made from different pieces of furniture and other bits and pieces.

In fourth place would the Tahkuna lighthouse where the remnants of firearms litter the beach. Järvi Lipasti, Hiiumaa native, Training and Integration planner for the Tuglase Society My favourite places in Hiiumaa are tied to my childhood, especially the Vanajõe Valley. I went there for the first time for a school excursion and experienced something mysterious. Some of it is also not typical to Hiiumaa: the river among the high desert coastal slopes. It’s small but

at the same time mighty.It's off the beaten track so it's possible you won’t run into anyone when you’re there. Leho Aaslaid, Hiiumaa resident, Ornithologist The best nesting places are on the Hiiumaa peninsula. Sõru in the south, Ristna in the west, Tahkuna in the north and Suursadam and Sääre in the east, including the entire Kassari area and Käina and Vaelma bays. ■

Must-see sights of the Old Town

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. Tallinn Old Town H 1-2.

T H E B A LT I C G U I D E ™ S E P T E M B E R 2 0 1 5

Kiek in de Kök and the Bastion Tunnels 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.

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.

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.

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 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

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.

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.

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

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

Discover Surrealism in Estonian art from the 1960s to the 1980s in the drawings and paintings of Concordia Klar and Peeter Ulas. The early drawings of the printmaker couple Concordia Klar and Peeter Ulas were never made into engravings, but offer interesting insight into the works of both artists. In fact, these drawings were before their time, anticipating growing interest in Surrealism in Estonian art. A selection of both artists’ drawings and prints in the vernis mou technique highlight Surrealism in Estonian art from the 1960s to the 1980s. Vernis mou is a type of varnish used in etching. Ulas graduated from the State Art Institute in Tallinn in 1959. Ulas’s work-intensive engravings developed from his drawings showing untamed fantasy and daring spatial perception. Concordia Klar graduated from the the State Art Institute in Tallinn in 1963. Klar focused on drawing. What makes her work particularly interesting is the way she tied cultural history, architecture, and nature together. The lithe female figure playing music became a characteristic image of her work. A Journey Within will be open in the Cabinet of Prints and Drawings until the end of the year. For those interested in learning the vernis mou technique, courses will take place at the Kumu Graphic Arts Workshop. Courses will introduce the technique and works from the collection will be studied. The courses will be supervised by Maria-Kristiina Ulas. ■

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
