he days are getting shorter and the nights a little colder and longer. With that, Tallinn moves inside for the long winter ahead. Autumn may not be the driest time to visit Estonia, but it is indeed the most stylish. Tallinn Fashion Week comes to town at the end of the month. For the seventh year in a row top Estonian designers come together to showcase the best of Estonian fashion design. For those looking for something a little more casual, yet still indoors, there is no shortage of indoor entertainment. Paintball, bowling, billiards, and shooting ranges will keep the adventurous spirit inside of you alive. In September we asked you what you liked to do in Tallinn for fun. Thanks to those who answered –we’ve added even more activities and attractions to our

paper, indoors and out. Shopping, relaxation, sports, concerts, eating and drinking, and a nightlife guide that will keep you partying into the early morning hours, fill the pages of this month’s issue.

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. 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.

Kiek in de kök

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”

KGB Museum

Town Hall Square

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.

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.

TALLINN

Maardu

Paldiski Keila

Outside of the Old 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.

■ 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. ■ KADRIORG

■ 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.

■ 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:

Saue

Tallinn – Paldiski With the days getting shorter, and a little cooler, it’s safe to say you won’t be headed to the beach for sunbathing. If you’re looking for a bit of history and some beautiful natural scenery, then this is the day trip for you.

St Birgitta’s Convent ruins (Pirita klooster)-Kloostri tee 9, Tallinn

Prior to 1994, Paldiski was a Soviet military base and home to 16,000 military personnel. After 1994, and after the military base closed, the population reduced quickly to about 4,300, its population today. The town has been in a state of decay, but slowly seems to be turning around with new investments and development, in particular near the port. Just outside of Paldiski is the Pakri peninsula. The peninsula itself is stunning, with tall limestone cliffs, and is home to the rare black guillemots, which look like small penguins. The Soviet ruins (abandoned bunkers and military debris) that are scattered along the peninsula are being torn down to clean up the area. Other attractions include the red lighthouse, a tsarist era train station, and the Pakri wind farm. ■

Location

Tallinn TV Tower (Teletorn) Kloostrimetsa tee 58A, Tallinn

Paldiski is located about 50km west of Tallinn. It’s easy to get there by bus or train. Trains leave from Balti jaam train station and take just over an hour to get there. For train timetables visit: www.edel.ee

Botanical Gardens (Botaanikaaed) Kloostrimetsa tee 52, Tallinn.

A quick history of the city of Tallinn ■ ESTONIAN OPEN AIR 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.

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. 1561 Tallinn goes to the Swedish. 1721 The Russians conquer Estonia and Tallinn. 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. 1944–1991 Tallinn becomes a Soviet capital

and hosts the sailing competitions of the 1980 Moscow Olympics. 1991 Tallinn becomes Estonia's capital. In 1997, it is declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 2011 Tallinn is the European Capital of Culture along with Turu. Its population is estimated at 411,000: 53% Estonians, 38% Russians, 9% Other.

Generous portions at Le Chateau.

Sauces at Chakra.

Spice it up! TEXT: KRISTINA LUPP, PHOTOS: ANDREI CHERTKOV Bold flavours and colours characterise the spicy dishes at these four great Tallinn restaurants.

If you are craving some spice visit Chakra for some wonderful Indian food. It’s located a little off the beaten track in Tallinn’s Old Town in a tiny passageway. The three dining rooms are richly decorated with bright fabrics that hang from the ceiling. The menu is long, offering everything from veggies to seafood, chicken and lamb. What’s even better here is that spicy means spicy. Even one chilli symbol packs a bit of a punch on the palette. Centrally located on one of the main streets in Tallinn, Bollywood is an Indian Thai restaurant with some modern flare. Dishes come elegantly presented, and the dining room is colourfully decorated against modern white walls. The menu offers a good balance

Located in the cellar of an ancient building in Tallinn’s Old Town, Le Chateau is the perfect place for cosy and romantic dinner on a brisk autumn night. The cellar is divided into a few sections, with thick drapes separating private dining rooms. Le Chateau is advertised as “the musketeers’ restaurant,” meaning you can expect generous portions of food and dishes fit for kings.

A bit of everything at Spice. of both Indian and Thai cuisine –think tandoori chicken and red curry prawns. Can’t decide which way to go? Try one of the appetiser platters. The vegetarian or Bollywood’s appetiser platter will give you a good sampling.

If you love foie gras, this is the place to come for a delicious terrine served with saffron apples. The traditional onion soup was also a warming and filling starter. The beef fillet, richly topped with goose liver butter and porcini sauce comes cooked to your liking. This is a place where medium rare, actually means medium rare. Another French favourite is Bordoo, located inside the Three Sisters Hotel. Here, old world charm meets new world style, and the food is certainly no exception. Fresh local ingredients are used for creative dishes that bring together Estonian and Spice offers Indian and Thai dishes as well, but with a few European favourites like chicken à la king and spaghetti carbonara thrown in for good measure. The Indian and Thai dishes are adequately spicy and reasonably priced for such a centrally located restaurant. Service is friendly and fast too! Chedi is certainly not the cheapest of the lot, but worth every penny. Dishes appear small, but after sharing a few appetisers and a main you’ll barely have room for dessert. Try the dim sum platters, or the fried squid to start. As a main you can’t go wrong with the roasted duck, and for something very spicy, try the spicy chicken with cashew nuts.

French cuisine. Choose between a four or five course menu for dinner that changes every few weeks. A sommelier is on hand to help you choose wine to suit the menu perfectly. At lunch the concept is a little bit different. The menu offers some classic favourites like Caesar salad, burgers, a club sandwich, and even fish chips. And on Sundays enjoy a brunch buffet. ■

■ Dereku Burger

The suburb of Kalamaja welcomes another new restaurant. The newly opened Elutuba (Living room) is open every day except for Sundays and Mondays. The restaurant organises many events and there are even guest chefs offering different cuisines in the kitchen from time to time. The difference between this place and all the other restaurants in the area is that this one has white tablecloths.

The burger master Derek Ewen will open his first Tallinn location this fall. Dereku Burger is set to open in the Lootsi Keskus, where the menu promises to be longer than that of the flagship location in Saaremaa. Dereku Burger - Lootsi Keskus, Lootsi 8 Tallinn A3.

SOVIET NOSTALGIA There are still a few authentic Soviet cafés left in Tallinn. TEXT MIKKO VIRTA, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

Sandwiches are freshly made everyday.

Come early and you'll get pastries straight from the oven.

A popular meeting spot for locals.

Walking into the Energia Café you are immediately taken back in time. Established in 1964, this café is located next to Kaubamaja department store and has served hungry Tallinners for decades now. The menu has almost remained the same, just like its clientele. The red panelled walls and interior give the feeling of stability, its décor has only changed slightly since its opening. Looking out the windows you see a completely different world, the modern Kaubamaja with its customers rushing in and out of its doors, can be seen across the street.

The mood could be gauged as calm, even homey. Soviet era music is playing quietly in the background. Grey-haired guests fill the seats and enjoy the café’s cuisine. Don’t go to the café on an empty stomach. Starving, I ordered seljanka soup, a salmon sandwich, as well as a strawberry cake and an “apple bomb.” The soups and the sandwich were filling, and by the time I made it to the apple bomb, it was already hard to find room in my stomach for it. The entire meal, including a drink cost 6, which in comparison to many other city cafés is very cheap. The Narva Café is located on Narva mantee in Tallinn’s city centre, and draws guests in with delicious smells wafting from the opening door. At the counter you are faced with a dilemma. It’s filled with wiener and meat pasties, pizza pockets, cheese buns, pastries, and rum cakes. The carrot pasties caught my eye so I decided to try those. The

warm pasties almost melted in my mouth. Narva Café’s prices were also very cheap. The pasties and pastries cost between 50-85 cents, and a mid-priced warm lunch goes for 5. A seljanka costs about 2. The menu has a lot more variety than at Energia Café –they offer omelettes, as well as salty and sweet filled crêpes. There is even a selection of dishes for vegetarians. You can order cookies and cakes to take away. Cake prices start at 11/kg. ■

Location Energia Kohvik, Kaubamaja 4, Tallinna. Kaardikood B2. Narva Kohvik, Narva mnt. 10, Tallinna. Kaardikood B3.

The atmosphere in these Soviet cafés is truly unique; such service style almost doesn’t exist anymore.

■ Alice Cooper rises from the dead, again

■ Tallinn Fashion Week

The Rock-n’-Roll-Hall-of-Famer Alice Cooper (65) needs no introduction. His heavy metal hits Poison, Hey Stoopid, and School’s Out still play frequently on the radio. His latest tour goes by the name of Raise the Dead. It’s been said that this show is by far Cooper’s best. The young Australian guitarist, Orianthi Panagaris will play together with the band. Tickets are available from Piletilevi sales kiosks, starting from 39€.

For the seventh year in a row, fashion returns to Tallinn. Last year the fashion event gathered over 4000 visitors and received great media attention. This year, 13 fashion shows are planned, in which 20 fashion designers will take part. In addition to this, the Kuldnõel Gala (or Golden Needle Gala) will take place on 26th October, where three silver needle and two gold needle nominees will show their designs.

The close matches with Northern Ireland and Slovenia are fresh in the minds of Estonians. The match starts at 21.30, and tickets are available from Piletilevi sales kiosks for 12-20€.

THE SCORPIONS Rock On The favourite German band will tour at least once more and stop in Tallinn along the way.

The Scorpions announced three years ago that they would put their instruments away and conclude their 45 year career. Thanks to loyal fans and top selling concerts the band decided to rock on. They gathered so much inspiration in fact that they even released a new album.

This year’s tour is appropriately named Rock n’ Roll Forever, and with this the band is not yet retiring. The band’s top hits include Wind of Change, Rock You Like a Hurricane, and Still Loving You, which will certainly keep fans rocking at Saku Suurhall. The

band has many fans in Estonia, so it’s wise to get your tickets early. Ticket start at 29 and are available from Piletilevi. ■

Agreement for Rail Baltic Project Signed Government ministers from Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, and Finland formed the joint company Rail Baltic last month with the signing of a document in Vilnius.

Roman-Era Sacrificial Site Discovered What may be Estonia’s largest known Roman-era sacrificial site was discovered in the north eastern town of Kohtla-Vanaküla. Archaeology enthusiast Mihhail Stadnik was in the area looking for Viking coins and discovered the site.

Guns, guns, guns! TEXT: KRISTINA LUPP, PHOTOS: ANDREI CHERTKOV

Ever wonder what it’s like to shoot an AK-47, or Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Desert Eagle .50? Well wonder no more! The Tactical Shooting range is Tallinn’s best-equipped shooting range. “You don’t need to have any previous experience,” explains Martin Bahovski, one of the owners of Tactical. “We take you through all of the necessary safety precautions and explain how to use each of the guns. An instructor is always beside you.” Really there is nothing to be afraid of. Tactical offers you the experience of holding and firing the same types of weapons that were used in top action films --think James Bond’s Walther PPK, Dirty Harry’s .44 Magnum, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Desert Eagle .50, AK-47s, 9mm Glocks, revolvers, pump-action shotguns

and more. It’s not only for the adrenaline rush, but also for the history. War history buffs will also be interested in ex-military rifles. The instructors can explain the history in great detail of all of the weapons at Tactical. Bookings are a must. Tactical can take groups of up to 30 people.

Ilukroon, or beauty crown as it translates into English recently moved this summer to a more convenient city centre location. “We have moved into our new space and settled right in. You won’t miss the bright pink sign outside either,” explains Ahti Aavik, owner and manager at Ilukroon. I had my haircut at Ilukroon, along with a moisturising hair mask. My stylist, Vaido told me, “After the summer it’s important to moisturise your hair, as it tends to dry out from sun exposure.” The before and after fee-

ling of my hair was astonishing. It wasn’t until after, when I ran my fingers through my silky soft hair that I realised just how dry it had been. Vaido has been cutting hair for two years now, and already has a long list of regular clients that have followed him to Ilukroon’s new location. “We like to have fun with our clients, and make sure they are enjoying their time while they are here. We are chatty, we want to hear about your day,” Ahti told me as I was waiting for my mask to set. Ilukroon only uses top salon products like Wella and Sebastian for hair colouring and

washing. But you won’t notice this in the price. Hair cutting and styling prices are very reasonable and competitive. “We want to offer top quality services, but at an affordable price,” explains Ahti. In addition to hairstyling, Ilukroon also offers other salon procedures. Facials, manicures and pedicures, waxing, and a long list of massages are on offer. Book your appointment in advance, but walk-ins are also welcome. ■

In conjunction with the 100-year anniversary of the Estonia Theatre, the AdamsonEric Museum is housing an exhibit called “The Denizens of the Estonia Theatre in Fine Arts.” The artworks on view are mainly portraits of various cultural figures associated with the Estonia Theatre from its beginning in 1906 throughout the twentieth century. Portraits by top Estonian artists such as Ants Laikmaa, Nikolai Triik, Felix Randel, and Johannes Greenberg are some of the exhibition’s highlights. Along with each work is a description not only of the person in the photo, but their most well known performances at the Estonia. The second floor also has an array of books documenting the history of the Estonia Theatre as well as the opportunity to listen to opera performances of its most well known singers, including excerpts by beloved opera singer Georg Ots. “The Denizens of the Estonia Theatre in Fine Arts” proves the strength of Adamson-Eric Museum, as a continued site for some of the most innovative art exhibitions in Tallinn. The exhibit is open until 24 November 2013. A turn towards an older era of art has also taken place across Tallinn in Kadriorg, where the Kadriorg Art Museum is currently featuring the exhibit “When the Artist Met Clio: Historical Scenes from the Nineteenth Century”. The exhibit focuses on history paintings by mainly Baltic German, Estonian, Latvian, and Russian artists,

but also artists from elsewhere. The focus on the nineteenth century is a welcome change both for the Kadriorg Art Museum, which typically focuses on the early modern era, as well as within the KUMU system as well, which has a tendency to focus primarily on the twentieth century. History buffs should try to stop by and see the exhibit at Kadriorg by 9 March 2014. ■

Don’t forget, there’s a lot to see outside of Tallinn too! Take a look at some of the unique destinations outside of Estonia’s capital. TEXT: KRISTINA LUPP, PHOTOS: ANDREI CHERTKOV, EAS

Castles The main attraction of Saaremaa’s capital Kuressaare (218km Southwest of Tallinn) is the Episcopal Castle. This medieval castle with a moat houses the stage of the summer opera festival and many more events throughout the warmer months. The castle is in excellent condition, and the inside houses a museum that is well worth a visit. The city of Kuressaare celebrates its 450th anniversary this year. Haapsalu (100km southwest of Tallinn) is like something straight out of a fairy-tale: old wooden houses built on narrow streets, overlooking a sparkling sea. Be sure to visit the majestic Haapsalu Episcopal Castle in the centre of town. The White Lady Days are held in honour of Estonia’s most famous legend. Under the full moon in August in Haapsalu, through the window of the Episcopal Chapel the white lady makes her appearance. According to legend, the maiden appears to show the immortality of love. Rakvere Castle is one of Rakvere’s (100km east of Tallinn) main attractions. Located on the hill just outside of the city centre,

Visit the Old Believers' museum in Kolkja.

the ruins of this medieval castle will entertain both adults and children. There are informative displays on the castle’s history, as well as an exhibit on the history of weapons. Try your hand at shooting a bow and arrow, or take a tour of the torture chamber. Narva (211km east of Tallinn) is the easternmost point of Estonia and EU. The Narva River divides Russia and Estonia, and from the Hermann Fortress you can look across the river to Russia and the castle on the other side. Narva was once the “Baroque Pearl of the Baltic Sea,” but during World War II, the city was almost completely destroyed. Visit Narva for an interesting glimpse at Russian

Hermann Castle in Narva

Kihnu Island

Estonia, Soviet architecture, and one of the best preserved castles in Estonia.

Seto Culture South-eastern Estonia is home to the Seto people. Their land today is split between the borders of the neighbouring countries. The Seto people have an Orthodox Christian tradition. Their customs and beliefs are different from the mainstream and one of their recognisable landmarks are the multiple small prayer houses or tsässonad. Värska (270km southeast of Tallinn) is the centre of Seto culture. Here you can find a museum and the Tsäimaja offering trad-

itional food. Seto Kingdom Day takes place on the first Saturday of August in Värska. On that day a king is chosen, as well as best musicians and best food and beverage purveyors.

Old Believers & Peipsi Lake In the 17th century, the Old Believers came to Estonia to avoid Russian persecution. Their religion is an old form of Russian Orthodoxy and today there about 15,000 Old Believers living in towns around Lake Peipsi. Visit the Old Believer’s museum in Kolkja Village (213km southeast of Tallinn) to learn more of their fascinating history and traditions, and be sure to have a meal at the fish and onion restaurant to have a taste of the onions that this area is known for.

Haapsalu

The fast-paced modern world has yet to reach the islands of Estonia. On the smaller islands, including Hiiumaa (155km west of Tallinn), there is the feeling of having gone back 100 years in time. Estonia’s

largest island, Saaremaa, is quiet and peaceful compared to Tallinn. Unique nature and preserved folk culture is the specialty of the islands, but don’t worry, modern amenities can be found as well. Kihnu Island’s culture is a UNESCO world heritage site. Elderly ladies driving motorcycles with sidecars, while wearing traditional folk clothing is a regular sight on Kihnu (180km southwest of Tallinn). Hiiumaa’s main attraction is the Kõpu lighthouse, built at the beginning of the 16th century. This is one of the world’s oldest working lighthouses. Kihnu, as well as some of the other islands have lighthouses that can be visited by tourists. Koguva, on the island of Muhu is the best place to see these traditional farmhouses. This village has many thatched roof buildings, including a museum. The many windmills in Angla village on Saaremaa, is the best place to see these traditional structures, as there are not many left in other places. ■
