A Brief History of Mulled Wine

W

andering the streets of Tallinn’s Old Town in November, you’re bound to come across the warm, spiced smell of mulled wine or glögg wafting from one of the city’s many cafés. There are many different recipes for this festive drink, but it’s usually made with red wine and a combination of spices and dried fruit. Every country seems to have their version of the drink. In addition to mulled wine, the English also enjoy mulled cider during the winter months. Spices used are cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and mace. The Germans and Austrians enjoy Glühwein during the Christmas holidays, adding cinnamon, cloves, star anise, citrus peel, and sometimes vanilla to the red wine. Blueberry wine or cherry wine sometimes replaces the red wine, and sometimes even rum is added.

In Estonia we drink glögi. It’s also made with red wine, sugar and spices such as cinnamon, cardamon, ginger, cloves, and bitter orange. And for those who want a bit of a kick, it's perfectly acceptable to add a shot of vodka or akvavit. We’ve got the glögi thing down to an art. Wander through any grocery and you find it already mixed, all you have to do is heat it up, and add raisins or blanched almonds if you like. While November may be dark and rainy, there is no cosier month to be in Estonia. Put on your warmest sweater and head to one of the upcoming Christmas markets to get in the holiday spirit. Enjoy a concert. And don’t forget to try some traditional Estonian Christmas food, like blood sausage and sauerkraut in Town Hall Square.

Flavours of India Spice restaurant takes yyou on a jjourneyy through g the rich flavours of southern India.

indian TEXT JUKKA ARPONEN, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

The small cellar restaurant Spice

feels more like a post-Soviet bar that is only missing a dance floor in the middle of the room. The decor is nothing special, but that doesn’t matter because the most important thing is Spice’s wonderful Indian food. The secret, the owner Sabu Olbri is from Kerala and he’s always at the restaurant. Kerala’s food is known for its heat, even by Indian standards, and the food at Spice is no exception. But even in the spiciest dishes, flavours like ginger, garlic, coconut and coriander are still clear and not masked by lots of chillies. When we visited, we tried some of the spiciest dishes on the menu. To start, the chicken pakora tasted just like in India, remarked my dining companion who had just returned from there. For the main course, the pork vin-

daloo and southern rn Indian style prawns had a spicyy twist. The food was served erved together with rice and salad. d. The flavours persisted until the very last mouthful. Beer was the perfect accompaniment to the food. ood. It’s worth mentioning that a 500mL 00mL Saku cost 2.50, which for the he Old Town is very reasonable. Also surprising was that the pricess in the restaurant were pretty reasonable asonable for the Old Town in general. eral. The menu also offered some more European dishes, though the reason to go to Spice is for the Indian ian food. ■

Le Chateau, one of Tallinn’s few

French restaurants is offering a wonderful Christmas menu in its candle-lit cellar dining room. For groups of six or more, book-

ings must be made two days in advance and the menu is 40 per person. There are eight cold appetisers, warm dishes include blood sausage and pork fillets, as well as tilapia. Don’t worry, vegetarians aren’t forgotten either. The festive evening is filled with the flavours, smells and colours of Christmas. The tasty salmon ter-

rine with caviar sauce is luxurious and the baked cheese with herbed pepper sauce tickles the taste buds. The smoked cheese that goes with the main course, adds wonderful flavour to the soft pork fillet.. The Christmas spirit can also be found in the fish that is paired with apples and different spices. Dessert comes in the shape of a Christmas pudding with a crispy almond crust, a wonderful end to filling meal. ■

Vana Torokse Farm café offers delicious daily specials.

RESTAURANT NEWS The long running Madisson cafe in the Radisson Blu Sky Hotel is closed for business. Estonia’s largest coffee shop chain will take over the location in November, offering some of the same dishes once offered at Madisson. Estonia’s largest street food and coffee seller Statoil will change its name over the next year and starting in 2017 will take on the brand name Circle K of the Couche-Tard family. Statoil opened in Tallinn’s train station or Balti jaam as a new coffee shop where you can buy pastries, hot dogs, and other savoury snacks, as well as coffee and drinks. KwakInn, the Russian chain of Belgian bars opened its latest location in Tallinn. In St. Petersburg there are four locations. The selection of Belgian beers is enormous. Leffe is on draught and there are over one hundred bottled beers available. The menu offers Belgian favourites like mussels and tarte flambé. Another cafe added itself to the many already located in the Kalamaja and Telliskivi area. VanaTorokse farm is a Harjumaa family company that sells smoked goods. Their shop in Kalamaja also has a cafe that offers daily lunch specials at reasonable prices.

Telliskivi’s newest cafe is the Renard Coffee Shop. It shares a

space with the Speed Shop, a custom motorcycle workshop and store. Located between Narva mnt and the World Trade Centre is the new Lime Buffet. The breakfast buffet is open 8.00-11.00 and lunch prices are calculated according to weight. The restaurant is open weekdays from 8.00-18.00. Lactose and gluten free meals are available. The popular meat restaurant Talleke ja Pullike is now open in Viimsi. Located close to the Lavendel Spa, a spa known for its smoke sauna, in November, they will open a pool with a bar. ■

Some people visit NOA just for the stunning view.

The Best of the Best Every year, 50 of Estonia’s top restaurants are chosen. Here’s a look at some that made the cut. TEXT KRISTINA LUPP, PHOTOS LAURI LAAN

Since the start of the restaurant competition in 2008, restaurants

have been selected and rated every year for a list of the 50 best. The ratings have been criticised for the comparison between different styles of restaurants being unfair in that it compares apples with oranges. But whichever way you look at it, the list no doubt gives a good overview and an excellent gastronomical guide to the country. Starting in Tallinn, Tchaikovsky has long held the number one spot in the city, that was until last year when NOA Chef’s Side stole the show. Tchaikovsky focuses on classic Russian cuisine with a French influence. It’s said that people come from far away to try their borscht with duck meat. NOA Chef’s Side offers a five or seven course tasting menu prepared by head chef Tõnis Siigur. While the food is fantastic, many people visit NOA simply for the magnificent view of the city from across the bay. To move further down the list, places like Salt in Kadriorg,

Kolm Sibulat in Pelgulinn, and Leib

Resto & Aeg in Tallinn’s Old Town are worth checking out for their more casual dining scene. Salt, a tiny bistro changes its menu weekly and focuses on mediterranean inspired dishes. Kolm Sibulat has a little bit of everything, but all prepared in house including some fantastic ramen and curry. For a taste of something more Estonian, Leib is the place to go. Everything is locally sourced and the menu plays with many traditional flavours. Moving outside of the city, let’s not forget some of those places a little off the beaten track. Places like Põhjaka, Tammuri Farm, and OKO are worth the drive out of town for a unique dining experience. Põhjaka was started by three chefs who decided to move to the country and restore an old manor house. This cosy house is now a favourite place to stop en route between Tallinn and Tartu for hearty home cooked meal. Tammuri Farm is about as far away as you can get from Tallinn in Southern Estonia and is a one man restaurant. Chef owner

Põhjaka is worth a stop on your way between Tallinn and Tartu.

Erki Saar takes groups by booking only, preparing creative meals and offering wine to match. OKO, owned by the same guys as NOA offer a beautiful seaside dining experience that is better in winter, when there are more chefs than service staff at work.

Tucked away on the fourth floor of

the busy central Tallinn shopping centre Viru Keskus is a relaxing little massage studio where you can take a moment from your day to unwind. The idea for the centre came from owner Kaja Heinsalu’s

time in Asia. “It’s very common to stop for a short massage while shopping”, she explains. “And I thought, why not try it in Tallinn”. Tool ja Tee is no ordinary place for a quick massage. Here, all of the masseurs are blind. Elve has worked as a masseuse for six years. Her technique is strong,

and she asks me many times throughout the massage if it’s too much. “It’s important that massage is strong, but not painful”, she explains. My visist starts with a foot massage. First, the feet soak for ten minutes in a magnesium bath. Like the name Tool ja Tee

(Chair & Tea) suggests, you are offered a cup of tea while you enjoy your massage. The foot massage last 30 minutes in total, with Elve touching on all the necessary spots. Classic and sports massage are also offered, and if you’re not too comfortable taking off your

clothes, Too ja Tee also offer a chair massage. ■

After your face is cleaned and exfoliated, your face and neck are massaged with a rich serum. This is the best part of course, because you don’t actually

At a more considered, sedate pace is Self, a quieter, but equally-good, bar around the corner on VäikeKarja street, close to the traditional tourist traps of Nimeta and Shooters, but still far enough away that you don’t have to deal with recurring images of staggering drunk people. Self, as the name implies, is a place where you can contemplate and achieve a state of inner calm. The wine is good-quality, the bar staff know their spirits,

Müürivahe is one of those Old Town streets which, thanks to Tallinn’s tourist centre being a zoneless mish-mash of chintzy amber and wool shops, modish design shops and strip clubs, you might normally give a miss. However, you would be wrong to do so, because in skipping Müürivahe, you’d never get to Ancho, one of the Old Town’s overlooked gems. The bar is not trying to offer luxury - it wants to give a straightup taste of Mexico, with shirts and pictures from Mexican football on the walls, competing for space with Mexican wrestling memorabilia. It’s a place to take your buddies and enjoy a light, hoppy Mexican beer, while forgetting about the fancy people who aren’t having as much fun as you. Ancho is a frequent stop-off for Tallinn’s large American community, and often hosts the monthly meetings of an informal local chili and spice club, attracted by the wealth of beer snacks and sizzling burritos, which you can enjoy with your beers and your pals.

After all that calm reflection, you’re ready for a party. There are other nightclubs in Tallinn. There are places that will gladly take your money time after time, as you down deceptively-expensive shots to get over the awful music being played. However, very few Old-Town clubs make you leave with a smile on your face as big as that with which you arrived. Baila does this. Baila is not trying to be anything it is not. It’s a club wedged into the narrow Sauna street, close to places we have praised before, like Paar Veini and Frank, but this is a Latin party, with sweat, salsa and a sunny disposition coming as standard. Though there is not much room inside, there are seating areas, waitress-

es who come to tables with your drinks - which are not overpriced – and somehow everyone finds enough space on the dancefloor to be satisfied. What puts Baila above anywhere else open as late (its doors do not lock until early in the morning) is the simple, but often overlooked, pleasure of not being patronised or looked-down upon. There is no sniffiness, everyone has a good time, and for one night, we are all equal in the finest sweatbox in town. ■

The annual Christmas Bazaar celebrates its tenth year.

Christmas

T

allinn is a great city to visit at any time of the year, but in December the thick, fluffy snow turns it into a winter wonderland that can be enjoyed by all ages. Allow us to take you on a trip through the Estonian capital, examining some of the most enjoyable things you can do with your Christmas break. If you retain a hankering for the sounds of the seventies, there's really no music that speaks of the decade more than legendary disco vocal group Boney M. The band's original vocalist Maizie Williams has embarked on a European tour, including one night in Estonia, at the Nordea Concert Hall. Whether you were alive to hear ”Rivers of Babylon”, ”Daddy Cool” or ”Rasputin” when they were first hits, or you're someone who enjoys a retro party, Boney M have the tunes to make your evening light up. Williams and the band come to Tallinn on 20 December. If you get your thrills from staring at the stars, or your children are always asking you about space, you might want to consider ”UFO: Circus From Another Planet”. The extraterrestrial show was

nominated for Circus of the Year 2015, and gives you the chance to experience zero-gravity wonders from across the universe. In case any of your family is curious what might be found on Mars, this will surely pique the excitement. Taking place at Tondiraba Ice Arena on 19 December, this acrobatic tour de force comes recommended. If theatre is more your thing, you need to take a look at the Estonian Drama Theatre, which, on various dates up to and including 23 December, is hosting the latest comedy from Graham Linehan, the writer of hit TV sitcoms Father Ted and The IT Crowd. ”Five O'Clock is Tea Time” is a heist comedy of the highest order, with Linehan's strong characterisation coming to the fore again, as a planned bank robbery only becomes apparent over the course of the play.

The Estonian Opera House and Ballet Theatre is a must at Christ-

take on the wide-ranging festive songbook. Tickets are available, but will go quickly. If ballet is more your preference, Tchaikovsky's ”Nutcracker”, probably the most famous dance production of all time, has another run at the Ballet Theatre, beginning on 25 November and ending on 19 December. Everything about this classic is magical, but to experience it with dancers of the calibre of the Estonian National Ballet is to see a treat. Ben Stevenson is the director as Clara travels to the world of sweets, the Mouse King, toy soldiers, and the giant Christmas tree. Thinking about giant Christmas trees, there's one in the centre of Raekoja Plats, as every year – and this forms the focal point of Tallinn's captivating Christmas Market, where you can enjoy a mulled wine and warm your hands with handmade woollen mittens while taking in a variety of different live performances. People come from around the world to enjoy the wonders of a Tallinn Christmas, and it's really no wonder they would, when you see it for yourself.

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. Learn about nature and wildlife in the Antarctic, climate and weather conditions, as well as modern day Antarctic exploration, which also shows what a camp today 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.

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

Raekoja plats

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

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

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

Outside of the Old Town Kalamaja & Kopli Kalamaja (Fish house) is a historic suburb filled with wooden houses and old factories. Since 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 have moved in for the large spaces and cheap rent. Restaurants and cafés began to open, and the area continues to grow.

A quick history of the city of Tallinn The name Tallinn originates from the Danish occupation (1219–).

Seaplane Harbour (Lennusadam) Küti 17 / Vesilennuki 6, Tallinn By tram: No. 1 or 2 from the city centre to the Linnahall stop. 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 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.

Insight into the life in Estonia during three occupations (1940-1991)

T

here's plenty to grab your attention if you pay a visit to Estonia's museum of modern art, KUMU, in the Kadriorg area of Tallinn. This autumn you have a choice of a series of ongoing exhibitions, or special displays that will only be there for a short time. Whatever you choose, you're sure to learn something you didn't expect to. We begin our look at KUMU with one of the best permanent exhibitions at the museum, ”Difficult Choices: Estonian Art from the End of the Second World War to Re-Independence.” In spite of

Temporary exhibitions

the slightly foreboding title, this is a display that will show you not only how Estonian artists compromised their vision during the Soviet occupation, but how they used subtle humour and in-jokes in order to find joy amid the difficulties being suffered. There are many poignant memories of a time Estonia seeks to remember in order to move on from. For a different take on the power of art, head to a new temporary exhibition, ”Saga. Iceland: Art & Narrative,” which focuses on narrative art – that is, art that tells a

Helgi Thorgils Fridjónsson (1953) Mirror of the North. 1989 Oil on canvas NEMO Gallery – Kunst in Nordeuropa, Eckernförde

story. It does so because of Iceland's rich storytelling tradition, going back many centuries, and currently spanning 1,000 new releases a year from Icelandic publishing houses, according to KUMU, in spite of the rocky island only having below 300,000 native speakers. Running from now until 20 March 2016, this promises to open your eyes to the culture of a nation much-loved for its individuality. For an edgier, stranger view of the world, you need to look at the exhibition of paintings by

Concordia Klar and Peeter Ulas,

two Estonian artists who are considered among the founders of a surrealist movement still going strong in the Baltic nation. You'll definitely experience all kinds of new emotions looking at the surprising early drawings of these unconventional artists. The exhibition runs until 31 December. ■
