Eating October

F

ood culture comes in all shapes and sizes and in Estonia it’s no different. IIn the four years that I have lived here, I have seen dozens of new restaurants open (and close sometimes), as well as the birth of many great culinary events and festivals. It seems that Estonia just can’t get enough! Take for example the annual street food festival that takes place at Telliskivi Creative City. Now in its second year, the festival has had to add a second day, just to accommodate the crowds. Restaurant weeks have gained in popularity and have spread out over the country to Tallinn, Pärnu, and Tartu. And let’s not forget the tens of smaller harvest events that take place in late summer around Estonia. That’s not all, September was also the first ever Estonian Food Month, where

Estonian food culture was not only celebrated throughout the country, but also in restaurants. October is a great month to visit Estonia, not only for the food, but for many other reasons. Theatre season is in full swing, with some great performances at the symphony and opera. Check out some of the new art and museum exhibitions including the fascinating Race to the End of the World, on now at the Seaplane Harbour. The Ants Laikmaa exhibit, Vigala and Capri on display at KUMU is also a worth a visit. And don’t forget to book your places at one of the many restaurants taking part in Tallinn Restaurant Week at the beginning of November.

What’s Old is New After a great summer, Tuljak’s success continues on into autumn.

bistro TEXT KRISTINA LUPP, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

Tuljak was once a popular café during the Soviet period and now the same guys behind NOA and OKO reopened the Tallinn institution this past summer. It’s no wonder the place was an overnight success, it’s got one of the best terraces in the city overlooking the water. We visited on a cool night in September, and while the terrace is now closed, the restaurant showed no signs of slowing down for the winter season. It’s a bit tricky to find your way to Tuljak if you’ve never been there before. It sits atop a small hill and you actually have to go around the side to find the entrance. Hint, it’s not the first door you see, that’s the kitchen. The restaurant offers a beautiful panorama over the bay and a view of the Old Town in the distance. The sun sets through the windows and lights up the room. The menu is divided into three parts: snacks, appetisers, mains,

and desserts. We tried the salted mackerel to start with radish, onion, and soy mirin sauce. The dish was a bit of an Asiameets-Eastern Europe fusion that worked - with each bite of the salted mackerel one expects pickled cucumbers on the side, but the soy mirin sauce was a pleasant combination. Next, if you’re looking for a fancy schnitzel, this is the place to come. The veal schnitzel “ROSÉ” was served with apple purée, horseradish, and stump mushroom salad. Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, this is a dish we would come back for. Save room for dessert and try the Tuljak tiramisu with blueberries. ■

No-needle mesotherapy at Tiia Ilusalong.

What to Know Before You Go Professional service and great prices are just two reasons why you should come to Tallinn for your beauty treatments. TEXT KRISTINA LUPP, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

You’ve probably heard of procedures like mesotherapy, ultrasound, and microdermabrasion, maybe you’ve even tried them. All of these procedures and more are available at some of the many beauty salons you will find throughout the city. Prices in Tallinn are much lower than in places like London and Helsinki. Take for example the no-needle mesotherapy: in Tallinn the procedure at Tiia Ilusalong costs 52, whereas in London prices start at 60. Here’s a quick overview of some of the most popular procedures.

part, you can get on with your day straight away. Tiia Piirisild, manager at Tiia Ilusalong, recommends 4-6 treatments for the best results.

again, there is no recovery time needed, so you can get right on with your day. One treatment is usually enough, but it depends on the skin type. Sometimes one might need up to three treatments to see the desired effect.

Mesotherapy Traditional mesotherapy uses a needle to do the exact same as mentioned above, though with a little bit of pain and possibly with slightly faster and better results. The needles used are very short and thin. It’s particularly effective in treating cellulite, but can also be used on the face. With this option, you will need to rest afterwards and give the treated area time to heal.

No-needle mesotherapy

Ultrasound

This is perhaps one of the most popular treatments out there because it offers the same great results as traditional mesotherapy, but without the pain. Instead, it uses electric pulses that deliver ingredients like hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin to the mesoderm or middle layer of the skin. This deeply hydrates and plumps up the skin. The best

Ultrasound is now used for a lot more than just seeing into the womb. It’s another non-invasive treatment used to lift the skin (in particular the eyebrow, neck, and under the chin, as well as lines and wrinkles in the chest area) and promote collagen production by targeting deep tissue layers (5mm deep) to make sure the treatment goes where it’s needed. Once

Microdermabrasion While this might sound painful, it’s actually quite gentle. It exfoliates the outer layer of dead skin cells, vacuuming them away as it goes along, leaving your skin feeling softer and smoother, and ultimately more vibrant after about 6-10 treatments. The machine uses crystals or diamonds to exfoliate through a handheld wand that creates a vacuum when it touches the skin. Recovery time is 1-2 days, as your skin may be a little pink afterwards. It’s a good treatment option for those with mild acne and superficial scars. ■

Põrgu means purgatory, but don’t be put off; it’s much closer to heaven than hell. It’s a secluded bar set into what looks like a trading house in the Old Town. It’s hard to find, but once you get there, you’re in for a treat. The cavernous bar, which is accessible through an old wooden door and up a flight of stairs, allows you to drink with your friends while feeling a part of the history of Tallinn. Nestling in quiet Rüütli street, this is a bar which only knowledgeable people frequent - and that’s where you come in. The drinks offered include a generous number of Estonian and international beers, while also having a menu full of traditional treats, alongside some international flavours such as the cheesy, breaded jalapeno peppers! The atmosphere, in spite of its location, is always lively, and Põrgu is an excellent place to start a night out, especially if you want to experience the real Estonia. Põrgu comes recommended for its easy charm, its unfussy inter-

ior, and the feeling you get of the place being your own little secret. The lack of a reliable phone signal when you’re under all that stone is also a hidden advantage; it means that you will find it much easier to make conversation with the person you came in with.

Karja Kelder Vaike-Karja 1, Tallinn Old Town I2

For a similar experience to Põrgu, but situated in a more central spot, Karja Kelder is a great option. All the beers you could have hoped for are there, but there is, in my opinion, a slightly better food menu at this bar. Alongside the occasional

western option are a series of tasty Estonian treats that should fill you up without leaving a hole burning in your pocket. Located down, rather than up, a series of stone steps, Karja Kelder also gives an otherworldly feel, as if you have travelled back in time - an illusion only broken by the music playing in the bar, and the regularly-used betting machine by the door. However, distractions are limited, and this is a fine bar for spending time chatting, with the acoustics excellent in every part of the room. The clientele, due to Karja Kelder’s location close to the usual tourist trap of Nimeta and Shooters, is more mixed than in Põrgu, with foreigners and Estonians sharing the space on most nights. You can be sure that you’ll be more than welcome here, and you’ll want to stay once you arrive.

saloon bar in one of those cartoon westerns: it’s as though the air goes still. The music carries on, but everyone in the bar looks round, curious about the new visitor. Kolm Lõvi has gained a degree of notoriety for being the only bar in Tallinn’s Kalamaja district to stay open after 2am. Inside, Russian disco music blares, people enjoy themselves, completely unselfconsciously, and it’s clear there is a great party going on here. Someone asks me, using her eyes only, to vacate my seat, as it is hers. She does this with the withering look of someone who idolises Clint Eastwood’s character in “Gran Torino” and doesn’t like to be messed-with. Meanwhile, several women aged over 40 are pirouetting around a pole that has been

placed, randomly, in the middle of the dancefloor, presumably for the amusement of the regulars. It works. No need for snobbery here - for a smooth, luxury experience, there is always the bar of your hotel, but for a true Tallinn latenight survival epic, head to Kolm Lõvi. You might surprise yourself with what you find there. My advice, though: go with a friend, as the groups of people who frequent Kolm Lõvi tend to know each other very well, and you will wish to share the experience with someone. ■

The trip continues to Pringi, with the sea sparkling on the west side all the time. Suddenly, something big “floats” above: a sea eagle, a second and a third fly large arcs in the sky. On closer inspection, it turns out that the bird closest to the ground is young and the other two are older, white-tailed eagles; the whole family is out for a daily flight. A woman watching children play on the beach, claims that the eagles were there the previous day. “One flew over us quite low”.

Viimsi Peninsula

ne e m

■ Viimsi is Estonia’s wealthiest parish, made up of about 19,000 inhabitants. The peninsula is 10 km long and 5 km wide.  ■ From Tallinn city center, one can bicycle to Rohuneeme in a couple of hours. The trip is about 19 km.  ■ There are many worthwhile sights along the way: the Viimsi Open Air Museum, the Museum of Coastal Folk, the Estonian War Museum, and the RMK Nature Centre. The west coast of the peninsula has numerous restaurants and some village shops.  ■ Bus number 1 runs from the center of Tallinn to Viimsi. You can rent a bike in the Old Town. Additional Information: www. visitviimsi.com

Beside the older houses are high-quality eco houses with Porsches and other expensive “toys”. It has to stand out somehow, after all, that Viimsi is one of the richest areas outside of Tallinn. Along with property there are Viimsi traditions, some time ago there was the famous Kirov collective farm, which in addition to the production of fishery products, produced shampoo and souvenirs. The Rannarahva Museum shows everyday life on the collective farm. At Rohuneeme village store you can see Pandju Island in the distance, which you can walk to at low tide. According to the information sign terns and ducks breed on the island and going to the island is banned during nesting season. Today, the beaches are quite empty, the birds are already migrating towards their winter homes. Rohuneeme is finally in front of me, the 20 km long bike ride can now be felt, so I stop to rest at a crossroad. I am startled when someone behind me says “hello”. An older woman walking her dog greets me with friendliness. The same is repeated a few more times, as this village also welcomes strangers, so I know I have arrived. The atmosphere in Rohuneeme is chatty. This beach village has an air of security and peace. Not

The morning sun is warming when you head about twenty kilometres towards the Viimsi peninsula. The coastal Pirita road is soon behind you, and the smell of the algae on the beach forces you to pedal faster. At Haabneeme beach fresher winds are blowing. The idyllic, coastal atmosphere is overshadowed by the Coast Guard’s warning of blue-green algae (cyanobacteria). Despite this, the beach is full of people when the weather is warm.   Haabneeme shows among other things, Viimsi’s good reputation. Lush gardens with apple and pear trees, and tomatoes ripening in greenhouses are on both sides of the road. The well maintained bike path runs along the seashore for most of the journey. The ride is easy. Soon, you can see the Viimsi Open Air museum farmhouses with thatched roofs. For three euros you can familiarise yourself with the heritage buildings. The skyscrapers of the Tallinn skyline can be seen in the distance along the coastline and it creates an interesting contrast with the scenery.

surprisingly, Lennart Meri (Estonia’s first president after re-independence) liked it here. Estonia’s legendary president lived in his Rohuneeme home for nearly 10 years. I cannot admire Meri’s beautiful house as it is located in a fenced area at the tip of the peninsula. Aegna Island seems almost “untouched”, Prangli is much farther offshore. Viimsi includes Prangli, Naissaar, Aksi and Keri, as

well as a few more smaller islands. Some of the islands are connected to the Viimsi port. The sea is always beside Rohuneeme. One can only imagine how it can be during winter storms when the cold winds sweep over the village from the sea. At present, however, life seems to be smiling, the sea breeze blowing softly, and the voices of children playing on the beach are transmitted quite far. ■

Climb the tower and dress up in armour Around the Old Town, about twenty of the ancient towers have survived and some of them can also be viewed from the inside. Kiek in de Kök, near the Freedom Square is one of the strongest, most well built turrets in Europe. Fat Margaret (Paks Margareeta), however, is known for its very thick-walled lookouts. Within its walls are approximately 155 cannon portholes, and the tower also houses the contemporary Eston-

In the Old Town are several museums that are interactive for all members of the family including kids. Nuku is a puppet theater and a museum, where you can become acquainted with Estonia’s most famous puppet theater actors and characters. Due to renovations theatrical performances will take place this season, at the Auna theater in Pelgulinn. The Museum of Natural Sciences (Eesti Loodusmuuseum) delves into Estonian nature. Plan to allow more time for your visit as the museum is on three different

Petrone Print, the renowned Estonian publishing company, makes a foray into children’s literature with this delightful story about Ronik, a dog owned by a family from Moscow who makes frequent trips to Tallinn. Anait Piruzyan demonstrates her love for the Estonian capital in every page of this geographicallyaccurate, and yet fantastical, piece of imaginative writing. On his walk, Ronik, a loyal and obedient dog to his owners, hears a guinea pig speak to him inside his favourite place of all, Tallinn Old Town’s pet shop. The guinea pig, who later tells Ronik she is called Beatrice, instructs him to come to a statue in Lembitu Park. Though Ronik hesitates, eventually he decides the temptation is too great. When there, Beatrice leads Ronik on a sweeping adventure that takes place across the Old Town and involves all of the city’s historic statues, as well as a large part of the pet population. Priit Rea’s illustrations bring home, with realistic pictures, the real-life beauty of the Old Town. If you’ve visited Tallinn, or you live there, you’ll love the instantlyrecognisable places and monuments. If you’ve never visited Tallinn in your life, you’ll fall for the city over the course of this well-

told, nicely-paced story. Without spoiling the plot, which has a twist that will make you smile and cry at the same time, this is a book about imagination, about the way that magic happens when you believe that play is real, and about understanding who is a true friend and taking care of them. Other important themes, such as sharing, taking time to look after others, and not allowing people to be spiteful or jealous, are also covered, in a tale that is old-fashioned in the right way, taking you and your child on a timeless journey while teaching that those who are ultimately happiest are those who do what feels like the right thing for others. The language level is about on a par with the third class in an English primary school, between the ages of 8 and 10, and if English is not your child’s first language, you should take good care to go through the difficult words with him or her. Some of the turns of phrase feel like they were not written by a native English-speaker (as they were not), although this is not something that prevents enjoyment, just as it did not for Töve Jansson’s Moomin stories. As with those, the message is delivered subtly, rather than being hammered home, and “The Adventures of Ronik in Tallinn” is all the better for it. ■

Must-see sights of the Old Town Kiek in de Kök and the Bastion Tunnels

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.

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.

The Kiek in de Kök tower is the entrance to historical underground bastion tunnels. In Soviet times they were supposed to serve as bomb shelters and protect the communist elite in case of a war. Kiek in de Kök means “look into the kitchen” in Low German, as this was one of the main things soldiers spent their time doing while on the lookout for intruders. Kiek in de Kök dates back to the 15th century. The tower is 38 metres tall, and the walls are four metres thick. Komandandi tee 2, Tallinn B1.

Raeapteek The Town Hall Pharmacy (Raeapteek) is one of Europe's oldest pharmacies, which still operates in its original location, on Town Hall Square. Tallinn Old Town H1.

KGB Museum Toompea Castle The Tall Hermann Tower (15th century) on the southwest corner of the hill, and the blue, black, and white Estonian flag signify independence and freedom for Estonians. Today, Toompea is the centre of Estonian government and the Riigikogu (parliament). Look for the pink building behind the Russian Orthodox Aleksander Nevsky Cathedral. Tallinn B1.

A fascinating museum about Soviet history in Estonia is located on the top floor of the Viru Hotel. The hotel rooms were under KGB surveillance. The rooms were equipped with microphones, and small holes were made in the walls, where cameras could be placed to take pictures of hotel guests. The museum is only accessible by guided tour. Tours run daily and are held in English, Finnish, Russian, and Estonian. English tours fill up quickly so bookings are recommended. Viru väljak 4, Tallinn B2.

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

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.

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.

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 (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

Race to the End of the World The fascinating tale of conquering the South Pole. TEXT KRISTINA LUPP, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

For those of you not familiar with the story, it goes like this: Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen and British Navy officer Robert Falcon Scott were on two separate expeditions in 1911 for the South Pole. Sadly however, one was not to return. The Race to the End of the Earth is a tale of adventure and hardship, triumph and sorrow, and of course courage and bravery. “There are three things I absolutely love about this exhibit. One, it really is larger than life. The story is truly remarkable and it’s hard not to leave inspired. Two, there is something for everyone to learn. And three, while the story begins with Amundsen and Scott, it continues with other who have been just as crazy and their stories are fascinating too”, explains Ann Virkus, in charge of sales for the exhibit, exuberantly. The exhibit starts from the beginning of the tale and shows that while the two men embarked on the same mission, their routes, teams, and equipment were very different. “Scott's team was very much based on hierarchy, whereas Amundsen chose men that were the very best at what they did”, explain Virkus. Partially reconstructed base camps are on display, as well as

equipment, photos, maps, and more. Upon entering the exhibit, you can pick up a card that shows you which team you are a part of, then as you wander through the exhibit you can follow the story of that team member. For children there is a passport, where they can collect stamps at each of the stops. As we mentioned before, there is much more than just Amundsen’s and Scott’s tales. Learn about nature and wildlife in the Antarctic, climate and weather conditions, as well as modern day Antarctic exploration, which also shows what a modernday camp looks like. And did you know that Estonians have a long history of Antarctic exploration too? The exhibit finishes with a look at Estonians who have gone to Antarctica and their missions there. In addition to the exhibit, the Seaplane Harbour will also be hold-

ing a lecture series called Maritime Forums every second Tuesday. In October the schedule is: Why Are We Fascinated by the Antarctic? on October 6 and Lessons from Antarctica: Burden of Fire on October 20. On Halloween, October 31, spend a night at the museum and watch The Thing trilogy (The Thing from Another World (1951 / 87 min), The Thing (1982 /109 min), The Thing (2011 / 103 min)) just like the Antarctic explorers do at the beginning of winter. More info as well as schedules can be found at: www.lennusadam.eu ■

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
