Holiday Traditions

A

n Estonian Christmas is a mixture of traditional and modern. The many occupations of Estonia have influenced celebrations here. Like in most of Northern Europe, Estonians celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve (24 December). In the folk calendar, Christmas began on St. Thomas’s Day (21 December) and lasted until Epiphany (6 January). Christmas holidays were celebrated from 25-27 December, with 24 December being the most important day. The word jõulud (Christmas) comes from the word Jul, a word that has no connection to Christianity. Scandinavia and Estonia are the only areas in Europe where Christmas is still referred to by a pre-Christian word. The word näärid, of German origin, was also used to mark the holiday. It was the only official seasonal holiday during the Soviet period. Otherwise, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day were celebrated at the time and

Christmas was celebrated unofficially in the privacy of one’s home. Every year, on 24 December, the President of Estonia declares Christmas Peace. This is a 350-year- old tradition that began in the 17th century by the order of Queen Kristina of Sweden. Christmas time in Estonia is magical. The huge tree in the middle of the square is the centre piece for the Christmas market. Smells of black pudding, sauerkraut, and mulled wine fill the Old Town. Traditional Estonian Christmas food includes pork with sauerkraut and blood sausage. There are many opportunities to try traditional Estonian Christmas food while visiting this December. Look for restaurants with special Christmas menus on offer. And no visit to Estonia in winter is complete without a mug of glögg or mulled wine.

The wine list focuses mainly on artisan wines.

The octopus ceviche is inspired by Peruvian street food.

Taste, as it should be Salt, a small Kadriorg bistro, aims to share the flavours of the world.

bistro TEXT KRISTINA LUPP, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

Tiina Treumann, owner of Salt

restaurant has travelled extensively. “I want to bring the flavours of favourite dishes I have tried and share them here in

Tallinn”. Take for example, the octopus ceviche Tiina tried at a street festival in Peru. The thinly sliced octopus is a burst of fresh flavours with lime, coriander, onion, and tomato jam. The menu changes weekly, but the ceviche has secured itself a permanent spot. Another favourite is the beet-

root ravioli. This colourful dish is fantastic whether you’re vegetarian or not. Thinly-sliced beetroot is wrapped around fresh goat’s cheese and served with pistachios and mango cream. But for something a little bit more substantial, the moose saddle with kale, glazed carrots, and truffle sauce will warm the coldest of nights.

To complement the everchanging weekly menu, Tiina has composed an wine list focusing mostly on artisan wines and beers. Helen, one of the servers at Salt, is a beer sommelier and can recommend beer to match the food, for something a little different. Salt’s service is top notch, yet

still friendly and casual. After a meal, it truly feels like you’ve been to a good friend’s house for dinner. ■

Alo Stamm, head chef at Lusikas

Mediterranean flavours inspire the menu at Lusikas.

restaurant in Tallinn’s Old Town loves Mediterranean food. His menu reflects this with a great assortment of fish and seafood dishes. “I cook what I like, but more importantly, I cook what our clients like”, he explains as he tells me about the menu. Stamm’s dishes are fresh and simple, as is the style of Mediterranean cooking. “What’s important are quality ingredients”. Meat lovers need not worry, there are many meat dishes to please every palate. Fresh oysters are always on the menu, a wonderful way to whet the appetite with a glass of sparkling wine. Lusikas has a fabulous selection of

sparkling wines and champagnes. Then move on to the mussels, which are served as a 1kg portion (half portions are also available). Served with a white wine cream sauce, the rich broth is the ultimate winter comfort food. For dessert, try the apple cake, which has been on the menu since the restaurant opened in 2012. “Our clients won’t let us take it off the menu”, explains Stamm. Lusikas’ wine list has over 300 bottles, offering wide selection of both region and price. Lusikas is also a great place to come for drinks and appetisers. Their wine menu offers cheese platters and snack platters for two. ■

Ho do you look after extensions? How Is it harder than with real hair? The better the quality, the easier it Th is to t look after them. Good-quality extensions don’t need any special care. You can use your favourite shampoo and conditioner, sleep with your hair down, and go swimming. Rough extensions can sometimes be fixed by applying a moisturizing mask and specialized moisturizing conditioner spray. How long do they last? Once again, the better the quality, the longer they last. Good quality extensions can last up to a couple of years. Are hair extensions suitable for everyone? When the extensions are attached, you have to make sure they don’t ruin your own hair. The lighter and thinner your hair is, the lighter the extensions should be. Good quality extensions weigh less and should be easy to brush through, because when brushing rough extensions, they can pull out some of your real hair. ■

We begin with a cafe that is a favourite of Tallinn-based foreigners, as well as many locals. Cubanita is an established name in Tallinn's bar scene, but is bestknown for its weekly salsa nights. The bar, which is situated in the gold-exterior, garish Foorum centre, actually manages to beat off its Trump Tower-style surroundings and is pretty classy when you get inside. The cocktails are excellent, as is the salsa party. Salsa is, of course, a great way to get to know new people, as it often requires people to pair with someone they have not met before. However, it's really not awkward, if you get into the spirit of the event. The DJing is invariably excellent, and the fact that a Tallinn bar is so long-running, in what is traditionally a city in which franchises change hands at a rate of knots, tells you a lot about the bullet-proof popularity of Cubanita.

THE PARTY

Step inside the dark, low-lit and intimate Black Taverna.

First-language Russian-speakers might often opt for a post-club spot like the Black Taverna, situated just next to the Song Festival Ground on the way to Pirita, although this bar is a great place for anyone to go, and we are merely stating who makes up the majority of the clientele. Step inside and it's dark, low-lit and intimate - perfect for quiet chats about

what you've just seen, or done, on the dancefloor. The food is the best thing at Black Taverna. No matter what time of night you arrive, you'll be greeted by waiting staff who are happy to see you, and a plate of the finest sushi you'll find after midnight. When you take into consideration the problems finding food after clubbing in the centre of Tallinn that doesn't taste like rubber, it's a welcome change to find such great meals at such an early hour of the morning. ■

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.

Area: 45,227 km2. Population: approximately 1,350,000 Capital: Tallinn, population approximately 400,000.

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.

Patarei Prison (Patarei Vangla) Kalaranna 2-2a By tram: No. 1 or 2 from the city centre to the Linnahall stop.

Kadriorg 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

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.

Start by visiting the ruins of St Birgitta’s Convent (Pirita klooster) whose colourful history dates back to the 15th century. 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.

What's on at the Occupation Museum TEXT STUART GARLICK, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

E

very visit to the Occupation Museum brings a new surprise of some description. For someone who did not live through Estonia’s Soviet occupation, it’s easy to imagine what the city of Tallinn might have looked like in Soviet times, but it’s not possible to live through those times. That’s where a place like the Occupation Museum comes in. In a modernist, glass-surrounded building at the bottom of Toompuiestee, the museum projects an understated calm, all the better for drawing attention to its exhibits. The aim of the permanent exhibitions is to show what Estonia was like to live in, under Soviet rule. There are impressive artefacts, including paraphernalia from an old home, old cars, and of course the rogues’ gallery of Soviet political and military busts held downstairs, opposite the toilets, and sure to give you a fright when you realise how close you are to Lenin.

There are impressive artefacts, including paraphernalia from an old home, old cars, and of course the rogues’ gallery of Soviet political and military busts held downstairs.

As the photographers were not professional artists, and their concern was not getting caught, rather than taking a good photo, the details often catch the viewer by surprise.

There are lots of examples of Prague in the time of communist rule that will surprise the modern viewer, and which were caught incidentally by the lens. ■

“Prague through the Lens of the Secret Police”

Ryoji Ikeda

KUMU ART MUSEUM Weizenbergi 34 / Valge 1, Tallinn, Estonia

The aim of the permanent exhibitions is to show what Estonia was like to live in, under Soviet rule.

OPEN: Wed 11am–8pm, Thu–Sun 11am–6pm

A riveting exhibition that takes place until January 3 2016, this explores the capital of the then Czechoslovakia through the hastily-snapped camera of a series of watchers employed by the Czech security police to keep an eye on people suspected of activities against the government.

For someone who did not live through Estonia’s Soviet occupation, it’s easy to imagine what the city of Tallinn might have looked like in Soviet times, but it’s not possible to live through those times.
