Modern traditions

A

cco rd i n g to the Estonian folk calendar, November marks the arrival of the phenological winter. November brought with it the start of winter work, the preparations for the long, cold months ahead. It was said that if there were still leaves on the trees in November, then one could expect a long, cold winter (something we can look forward to after the long, hot summer we had this year). November is also a month with some very important folk holidays. November 2 marks All Souls’ Day (Hingedepäev). This is perhaps the closest thing that Estonians have to Halloween. All Souls’ Day is celebrated privately by placing candles in the windows or on graves to honour the dead. St. Martin’s Day (Mardipäev) is one of the most important folk holidays in Estonia. November 10 marked the end of autumn. Children would put on costumes, usually animal masks, the night before and go door-todoor asking for treats. Slightly less important in the Estonian folk calendar is St. Catherine’s Day (Kadripäev). Celebrated later in the

month on November 25, St. Catherine’s Day also marks the arrival of winter. St. Martin’s Day is traditionally associated with men and St. Catherine’s Day is traditionally associated with women. It also requires dressing up – both men and women will dress up as women or as kadrisants. The kadris wear clean and light coloured clothing, to signify the white snow in winter. Folk traditions continue to this day. If you visit Estonia on one of these days you may see candles in the window or children with animal masks. Modern traditions continue as well. With the colder weather moving in, you will most certainly smell the aromas of glögg, a spiced mulled wine. The annual St. Martin’s Day Fair takes place once again and offers visitors a chance to sample Estonian food and buy early Christmas gifts. Enjoy November and all of its traditions, both old and new.

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.

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.

Ceps with mushroom vinaigrette

Interview: Radoslav Mitro Mane Lai 6, Tallinn Old Town G1. Caucasian food made its way to Estonia during the Soviet period and has stuck around ever since. But we’re not complaining – grilled meat, kebabs covered in lots of onions, and of course dumplings, are just some of the reasons you should try the Armenian cuisine at Mane. Bring a friend or two along and share a few dishes.

adoslav Mitro is from Slovakia, and since 2008 he has been working in top restaurants throughout Europe. He has worked in London, and even the top restaurant Noma. Rado’s cooking style encompasses the simplicity of local seasonal ingredients, and incorporates elements of classical French and Nordic cuisines. How-

Vabriku 6, Tallinn A1. There have been mixed reviews about this Mediterranean restaurant, but we were quite pleased when we visited for lunch. Laterna offers daily specials for €5.50, which you can familiarise yourself with on their Facebook page. The restaurant has a quiet atmosphere with eclectic décor, including some very interesting photography displayed on the walls.

Restoran Dvigatel Lõõtsa 6 (A and D entrance at Ülemiste City), Tallinn This new addition to the fast growing Ülemiste City area of Tallinn, near the airport, claims to be Estonia’s largest restaurant. The idea is not so far fetched – Dvigatel seats up to 370 people! The restaurant is divided by different cuisines and price ranges. The French café and deli offers fresh baked pastries and sandwiches all day long. Try traditional Estonian cuisine or Mediterranean dishes, all prepared while you wait.

Cerrito Burrito imports many of their Mexican ingredients, so you can expect good quality as well.

ever, his extensive travelling always brings new ideas and techniques into his cooking, allowing his talent to grow. At the end of September, the menu at Ribe changed. The Baltic Guide had a chance to go and taste some of Rado’s new dishes, and talk about his food. How did you become interested in cooking? I grew up with food. And Slovakia has a good food culture, where we eat a lot of the same things that you do here – pork, lard, potatoes, and sauerkraut. What brought you to Estonia? My girlfriend. I’ve only been here a few weeks and I have fallen in love with the country. I will start Estonian lessons next week.

What has inspired you most about cooking here in Estonia? Do you have any favourite ingredients? I think that you take something with you from every place you’ve lived. In Estonia I have been spending the last few weeks, as well was my days, familiarising myself with the ingredients here. I like going to the market. Last month I spent every Sunday foraging. I love the mushrooms you have in Estonia. I love the taste of kali (a fermented drink made from black bread). I will be incorporating that into the new menu, as well as cabbage. I am very happy here and feel honoured to be part of the Estonian culinary community. Have you had the chance to try other restaurants in Estonia? I am impressed with the restaurants here, both fine dining and casual. One of my favourite discoveries is the black bread garlic

Venison with cranberry and chestnut

bread that they serve in pubs. And while it’s nothing fancy, I do enjoy the pancakes at Kompressor too! ■

Refined tastes Lusikas (spoon in English) is a cosy restaurant in the Old Town, just a stone’s throw from Viru Street. TEXT MIKKO VIRTA, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

The interior at Lusikas has subtle dignity. Brown and grey tones add to the peaceful atmosphere. Small rooms separated by thin curtains ensure an intimate dining experience. The restaurant’s owner, Rein Kärk, confirms that Lusikas is the ideal place to come for a peaceful meal. “Lusikas is an à la Carte restaurant throughout the day and at night”, explains Kärk. New winds are blowing through the restaurant this autumn. A new menu will be available at the autumn’s end. The popular beef tenderloin will stay on the menu, as

well as some of the other old favourites. Last winter’s hit dish, the lamb fillet, will be back on the menu. “Restoran Lusikas’ cuisine is international, and influenced by seafood”, explains Kärk. Among other items on the menu is the Nile bass fillet and mussels. The main courses are priced from 12-16, and it is safe to say that the price quality ratio is spot on. A deli will open at the end of autumn. Here you can buy fish and meat, as well as different sauces to take home. The same ingredients used in the restaurant will be for sale. The restaurant will also open a cigar room at the end of October. Among the large wine selection of 250 wines you will find some-

thing for every taste. The restaurant’s sommeliers can help choose the right bottle. As an appetiser, I chose the mozzarella salad, which had wonderful fresh summer flavours. French bread, fresh from the oven, was served with the salad. For the main course I had to try the house speciality, the beef tenderloin with mashed potatoes.

Not only did this dish taste good, it also looked good. The beef was cooked medium, exactly to my liking, and was soft and juicy. It is very clear that Lusikas takes quality and fresh ingredients very seriously. ■

W

e all know, by now, about Tallinn’s Must Puudel café, but if you’ve been there loads of times, what are the alternatives for an Old Town hipster night out? Where can you go if you need to give the black dog a rest? There are a number of alternatives, for people who like socialising without the need to wear designer clothes or listen to chart music, and would rather have something alternative.

There are many new additions to the food court.

Fully renovated and redesigned.

Ülemiste – Estonia’s largest shopping centre TEXT KRISTINA LUPP, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

At the end of October, Ülemiste shopping centre reopened with 50 new shops and service points. Ülemiste shopping centre’s renovations have been going on for quite some time, but once you set foot in the fully renovated centre, you will realise it was worth the wait. Ülemiste has become a one-stop-shop for shopping of course, but also as a destination for the whole family. The addition brought an extra 22,000 m² of shop space, totalling 60,000 m² altogether. There are over 50 new shops and service points, a parking house with 400 extra spaces, themed rest areas (there is one that even includes a slide), and children’s play areas. The centre can now boast having Estonia’s largest selection of shoes with 23 different shops, children’s clothing and toys, and sports apparel. And, if that’s not enough, the selection of places to eat has doubled. Ülemiste shopping centre will be home to some big name brands that will be coming to Estonia for the first time in Estonia. This includes, Estonia’s first Sports Direct, H&M Home, The Pier, Estonia’s largest Zara store, Nike flagship store, an Apple showroom inside Euronics, and a 1400 m² Lido restaurant opening in January. There will now be 1350 parking spaces at Ülemiste. This includes

the 950 spaces outdoors and the 400 spaces in the new parking garage. The three-floor garage has entrances on each floor of the shopping centre. Parking is free for shopping centre visitors. There are also charge points for electric cars. With 60,000 m² of shopping, you may need to rest your feet. Ülemiste has built five different rest areas, each with a different theme: flower, tree, water, sun, and stone. Some are equipped with iPads, so you can surf the net. Some have phone charging capabilities and some have TVs. And there is even one, the flower rest area, which is equipped with a slide from the second floor to the first. The slide is meant for children, but during our tour we were told that if you fit in the slide, you could use it. The shopping centre also has free Wi-Fi throughout. In addition to shopping and the comfortable rest areas, Ülemiste will hold events throughout the year. Visitors can look forward to upcoming Christmas events, the Chocolate Festival for Friendship Day in February, and a summer strawberry festival. Ülemiste now has Estonia’s largest selection of shoes, with 23 shoe stores. Take your pick from Dune, Danija, Eligo, Walking, MK,

ECCO, SHU, Tamaris, Salamander, Geox, Skechers, Bata, NS King, Hõgl, ZB Shoes, Step Top, Aldo and more! You will also find wellknown Estonian brands including Monton, Sangar, Mosaic, Bastion, Protten, Bon Bon Lingerie, Marc and Andre. Top name international brands include Guess, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Springfield, Marco Polo, SuperDry, Gerry Weber, Esprit, Zara, H&M, New Yorker, River Island, Lindex, Motivi, Reserved, Mohito and many more!

Relax and meet friends at Ülemiste.

Ülemiste is a fashion and family centre, where children’s entertainment is taken seriously. It is therefor that Ülemiste has Estonia’s largest play land. And if that’s not enough, there is also a playground with soft recycled rubber play top materials. In Ülemiste, there is also no shortage of children’s clothing and toy stores. It just wouldn’t be a great shopping centre without a great selection of restaurants and cafés. These include everything from Chinese and Japanese cuisines, to family restaurants, to fast food like McDonalds and Subway. In January, a 1400 m² LIDO restaurant will open. ■

01 CASTLE RUINS You won’t miss Rakvere’s main tourist attraction, as it sits on the hill overlooking the town. Here you can try shooting a bow and arrow, sword fighting, and more. Taste medieval wines in the castle’s cellar or have a hearty medieval meal at the pub. Closed Mondays and Tuesdays.

City Guide:

Rakvere Rakvere, or rather Rakvere’s castle is first mentioned in the Chronicle of Livonia, written by Henrik of Latvia in 1226, where he describes an Estonian wooden castle located on a hill. The wooden castle was destroyed during the Livonian War and then replaced by a large, stone castle, the ruins of which you can still see today. Rakvere is rapidly developing and is home to many interesting music and art festivals. Arvo Pärt, Estonia’s most famous modern day composer, went to

school here. A statue of Pärt as a young boy can be seen in the Town Square. The Estonian Punk Song Festival takes place every few years. The festival began as a protest against the conservatism of the national song festival. Baltoscandal, the biannual international theatre festival has been held in Rakvere, Europe’s smallest theatre city, since 1994. This small city makes for a great day trip, or even a quiet overnight stay on your way to Narva and eastern Estonia. ■

How to get there Rakvere is Estonia’s fifth largest city and is located about 100km east of Tallinn. Bus: Buses leave almost hourly from Tallinn and tickets start at €4. Tickets and schedules can be found at www. tpilet.ee Train: There are two daily trains to Narva that stop in Rakvere. Tickets cost €5.30. Tickets and schedules can be found at www.elron.ee

02 TURUPLATS MARKET SQUARE Built in 2004, this is probably the most modern town square in Estonia. The yellow domes and contemporary fountain are the square’s main features. It is conveniently located next to the main bus stop.

03 TARVAS Located near the castle, the Tarvas statue is actually an auroch, not a bull. It was made by the Estonian sculptor Tauno Kangro. It stands four metres tall and stretches seven metres long! It is considered to be the largest animal statue in the Baltics.

04 TOWN CITIZEN’S HOME MUSEUM The Town Citizen’s Home Museum is centrally located at Pikk 50. Visitors can see how Rakvere’s town citizens lived at the end of the 19th century. Closed Sundays and Mondays.

05 BIRTH OF THE HOLY MOTHER ORTHODOX CHURCH

Try your hand at archery at the castle ruins.

Located at Tallinna 17, this church is one of the town’s tallest structures. It contains the holy remains of the martyred priest Sergei Florinski, and are the only public holy remains in Estonia.

Peel and Protect Gel nail polish that you can remove at home without soaking – available only at NailSpa. TEXT KRISTINA LUPP, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

The ultra thin protective film is applied.

The gel polish is applied.

After 2-3 weeks, the polish is peeled off easily.

Peel-off gel nail polish is probably the best nail polish to come along since, well, gel nail polish. Gel nail polish offers clients a quick drying nail polish that lasts from 2-3 weeks. The only problem with gel nail polish is that when it starts to grow out or chip, you have to go back to the salon to have it removed. Its removal means a soak in acetone for the polish to come loose. Once or twice a year this isn’t so bad, but for those of us that like to have our nails done on a regular basis, the effects of an acetone soak is harmful to our nails. ProNails has the solution – the SoPolish Protect and Peel manicure. It offers the same great long lasting colours that can be peeled off at home without damaging your nails. I just had to go and try it for myself to see if it was true. The manicure starts off like a regular gel polish manicure. Your hands are not soaked, but the manicurists does clean and trim your nails. Once the nails are ready to go, a thin film, something like a second

skin is applied to each nail. The film comes in different sizes to suit all nail widths. The excess film is cut and the polish is applied. “The film is so thin that you wouldn’t even know it's there”, explains Esti Hutchins, NailSpa’s manager. “The film protects your nails and when it's peeled off, there is no damage”. It’s true. My red polish lasted almost three weeks (the colour had grown out, but had not chipped). I started to peel it off one by one and I was amazed at how easily it came off. The result – my nails looked just as smooth as before the polish had been applied.

“The Peel and Protect manicure is great for people who want the long lasting colour of a gel polish, but without the damage to their nails”, explains Esti. “If you were afraid of trying gel polish before, now is your chance to try it. The gel nail polish does not even touch your nails”. SoPolish Peel and Protect, which includes a quick manicure and polish application, lasts up to one and a half hours and costs 25. Bookings recommended. ■

Sea in the Wardrobe An exhibition on the sea and fashion. TEXT KRISTINA LUPP, PHOTOS ARON URB

Maritime fashion is probably something you’ve never thought about. What do fishermen wear at sea? How has navy fashion changed over the years? What did people wear to the beach 100 years ago? The Sea in the Wardrobe exhibit answers all of these questions and more. The sixroom exhibit looks at sea clothing, the materials it is made from, beachwear and children’s outfits. There is truly something for everyone in this unique exhibit. The Seaplane Harbour is buzzing with everything having to do with water, fashion, and clothing. The usual Sea Forums for example, have become Sea Fashion Forums. Sea and fashion is even represented on the MARU restaurant menu and in the souvenir shop. On Sundays, visitors can take part in fashion and sea workshops. The Seaplane Harbour is also offering two tours in English for those that want to dive deeper into the world of maritime fashion. Stories about Sea in the Wardrobe Tour (45 + the cost of admission) lasts 50 minutes and examines the six subject areas of the exhibit in more detail. The Seaplane Hangars + Sea in the Wardrobe Tour (65 + the cost of admission) looks at both the

temporary and permanent exhibits and lasts 75 minutes. ■

Location Seaplane Harbour (Lennusadam) Vesilennuki 6, Tallinn Open: Tue – Sun 10.00 – 19.00 Combined ticket until 18 January: Adults €14; Students and Children €8; Family ticket €28. Children up to 8 years free if accompanied by an adult.

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
