f it seems like there are dozens of events happening every week and weekend during summer, it’s because it’s true. It would be fair to say that at any given time there is certainly something going on somewhere in Estonia. The summer kicks off with the Youth Song & Dance Celebration, followed by the annual Õllesummer (or beer summer), which as the name suggests, offers beer. Enjoy two great folk music festivals this month as well. Võru Folk takes place at the beginning of the month and Viljandi Folk wraps up July. Turn to our event calendar for a look at everything that’s happening through to September.

Outdoor dining at Leib. Poseidon is serving up burgers that you can actually take a bite out of.

RESTAURANT NEWS TEXT KRISTINA LUPP, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

It must be summer, because there

are so many new places to check out in Tallinn, we couldn’t even mention them all! Located in the newly renovated Balti jaam market by the train station, Baojaam (Kopli 1, Tallinn a1) is Tallinn’s first bao bun takeaway. A bao is a steamed bun that is filled with different, flavourful fillings, usually pork. These baos are all made in-house, with your choice of five different fillings. Venture out of the Old Town to Pärnu mnt to taste the flavours of Africa at Chop Afrik Kitchen (Pärnu mnt 28, Tallinn b2).

Located in the same venue at Café VS, Chop Afrik Kitchen. While we haven’t had a chance to visit yet, the menu looks intriguing. Out in Kopli at the new Arsenal Keskus, which opened earlier this year, Poseidon (Erika 14, Tallinn) is serving up burgers that you can actually take a bite out of. While the rest of the city seems to be creating burgers that just get bigger and bigger, Poseidon offers an alternative. Don’t worry if you want a big one, their Megaburger boasts 4x100g patties!

Try something local Where to taste Estonian cuisine in Tallinn. Think sauerkraut, mountains of boiled potatoes, large portions of pork, you get the idea. We quite liked the sausage feast.

The capital city is filled with all

kinds of restaurants, offering many different kinds of food. Sometimes, however, you want to get a taste of local cuisine. Here’s a list of a few places to taste some Estonian-style fare, both modern and traditional.

Liisu Juures Raekoja plats 13, Tallinn Old Town h1

Farm

It doesn’t get more central than a meal at Liisu Juures in the Town Hall Square. Located in a warm and inviting cellar in Tallinn’s Old Town, this is the place to come for good food, and good Estonian hospitality. Here you’ll get a good taste of traditional dishes, like pork roast and herring. Liisu Juures also has a good selection of Estonian beers.

Müürivahe 27B, Tallinn Old Town h3

As different international cuisines arrive in Tallinn, perhaps the one type of restaurant we were missing was a seafood restaurant. The Seafood Bar (Viru 23, Tallinn Old Town h3) serves fish and shellfish in every form you might want - raw, grilled, or baked. If you’re looking for something a little more local, Mehed Köögis (Pärnu mnt 2, Tallinn b2)

takes its inspiration from Nordic cuisine. Last but not least, taking over the old location of Francesco Sibio at Solaris, Mintleaf (Estonia pst 9, Tallinn b2) offers Indian cuisine along with a fine selection of gin. ■

Farm brings modern Estonian cuisine to Tallinn. The restaurant’s interior is rustically elegant and the glass-enclosed open kitchen is the centre of attention in the middle of the room. It’s seen great success since its opening, with its head chef competing for Estonia at the Bocuse d’Or 2017 cooking competition. A great place to try some traditional Estonian flavours reinvented. Through the back, or around the corner on Viru Street, you will also find their bakery, Rukis (Viru 11, Tallinn Old Town h3).

Leib Resto ja Aed is the dream of sommelier Kristjan Peäske and chef Janno Lepik, two friendsturned restaurateurs. Their love for good food and good wine can be seen in the restaurant’s seasonal menus, and the ever-changing wine list. All of Leib’s raw ingredients come from local farms and producers, the majority of which are organic too.

This is the place to come for hearty, traditional Estonian food.

Farm offers modern Estonian cuisine.

Located in the heart of Tallinn’s Old Town, this restaurant lives up to its name: At grandmother’s. Vanaema Juures offers traditional Estonian fare, incorporating local ingredients. Dishes are served up just like granny used to plate them – generously portioned. Vegetarians will find plenty to choose from as well. ■

Homemade burgers at Taps.

Tallinn’s favourite burgers TEXT KRISTINA LUPP, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

and it seems like every month a new burger joint opens up. We asked Tallinn locals where they go to satisfy their burger cravings. Here is what they told us.

Burger Box Kopli 4, Tallinn a1

Burger Box is certainly one of the favourites here. They have a

While not technically in Tallinn, Taps is worth the drive. This casual little burger place offers a short menu including a grilled prawn sandwich and pulled pork. We loved the classic and especially liked their brioche buns.

Suur-Karja 11, Tallinn Old Town i2

The popular food truck Linnutee Puhvet opened an indoor location in the Old Town, where they serve their delicious grilled burgers made fresh to order. What’s great about this place, apart from its convenient Old Town location and great food, is the setup. A counter wraps around the open kitchen/bar, so you can sit among the action.

Their veggie burger is quite tasty as well.

Estonian Burger Factory Pärnu mnt 41a, Tallinn b2

EBF was one of the first “gourmet” burger places in Tallinn. The brains and some say the talent behind the popular Vesivärava Grill started EBF back in 2014. Freshly grilled beef burgers are served on soft homemade buns. Try some of their sides too, including the fries, which are one of our favourites in the city.

Vabaduse pst 39, Tallinn

Soo 1B/6, Tallinn a1

Everything is prepared in-house at Uulits.

Linnutee Puhvet

Diner

Uulits If you’ve never tried their burgers before, you can expect a juicy larger-than-life burger with fresh homemade toppings. Burgers, salads and fries are all made in-

very short menu, but what they do offer, they do well. Order your burger (we love the classic, but we’ve heard the veggie falafel burger is great too), then go next door to Põhjala’s Speakeasy for a pint. Your order is passed through a tiny hole in the wall between both places. This tiny takeaway is a cashonly spot.

Gourmet hot dogs at Hotokas.

Just as the name suggests, Diner takes its inspiration from a classic American diner, except this diner serves mostly burgers. We could even go so far as to say they have the most extensive burger menu in Tallinn. If you’re looking for a tiny burger, you won’t find it here. Their regular burgers are mammoth, which makes us wonder what the XXL ones look like.

Hotokas Toompuiestee 16, Tallinn b1

Ok, so it’s not a burger a joint, but we wanted to include it anyway. Hotokas serves hot dogs. Choose between different kinds of sausages, tons of different toppings and some tasty fries too. They even have a couple of burgers on the menu too. ■

A cellar for wine lovers wine bar TEXT SILJA HURSKAINEN, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

If you’re looking for something dif-

ferent from the regular bottles at the shop, then a stop in Gloria Veinikelder is a must. The wine cellar and restaurant offer customers 700-800 different wines from 25 different countries.

The octopus carpaccio was soft and delicate.

The oldest wine on the rack is from 1939. “We are a chateau-style wine restaurant. While we don’t grow or press the grapes ourselves, we offer wine degustation, meals, and a shop where you can buy bottles to bring home”, explains Marko Hark, the restaurant’s owner and sommelier. When you first walk into Gloria Veinikelder, there is a store where you can buy almost anything made from grapes. The oldest bottle on the shelf id from 1939.

Hark says that the wine cellar focuses on smaller, Old World producers. Next, you will find the cosy restaurant. We tried the octopus carpaccio to start, which was soft and delicate, served with the unlikely combination of truffle cream and marinated apples. For the main, we tried the duck

breast, which played with pleasantly sweet elements. In addition to the sweet potato, it was also served with red onion and black lentils. In summer, a small terrace sits in front of the restaurant, where

you can enjoy a small selection of tapas with your wine. ■

The trendy Telliskivi area is bust-

ling both day and night. Trühvel restaurant is no exception. It’s lunchtime and the restaurant is packed. We sit down and are not even offered a menu because most customers at this time of

day order from the lunch menu. Lunch specials are posted weekly on their Facebook page. While the lunch special on that particular day did sound intriguing, we opted to taste a few dishes from the a la carte menu. The menu starts with a selection of antipasti, which suit a glass of wine on their large outdoor terrace. We start with the goat’s cheese, which is served with pickled rhubarb, basil oil,

and beetroot crisps - a new twist on a classic combination. To follow, the trout fillet cooked at 46C melts on the tongue and the asparagus, potato crisps, and cauliflower cream with horseradish sauce make good accompaniments. If you come later in the day, after 15:00, you can enjoy something from the grill, or rather the Big Green Egg. Desserts on offer are beloved mediterranean classics like tiramisu. And don’t forget to try the coffee from Brick Coffee Roastery, which share the same space with Trühvel. ■

A little bit of Thailand in the Old Town Thai Orchid Spa is a warm inviting oasis in the city centre. TEXT KRISTINA LUPP, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

Walking into Thai Orchid Spa, you

are immediately greeted by a friendly receptionist. Leave your shoes and coat at the door, step into some cosy slippers and sit back and relax. Thai Orchid Spa has been in business for over eight years and specialises in traditional Thai massage. Their masseurs are from Thailand and have been professionally trained in their field. Traditional Thai massage is different from regular massage. You wear loose-fitting clothing and you sit with the masseuse on a mat. She then moves your body into various positions, stretching and moving problem areas. Think of it like yoga, except someone else is doing the movements for you. I opted to try the Thai oil massage to relax and recharge tired bones. This is a full body massage, where the masseuse starts on the back, working down the legs to the feet and then back up

As the massage nears to an end, she has me sit up and moves my body into various poses for further stretching. The one-hour massage was relaxing, yet invigorating. I could feel my body loosen as she worked through my tight muscles. In addition to Thai massage, Thai Orchid Spa also offers cosmetic services like facials that

can be combined into a spa package as well. Couples are welcome and can enjoy a romantic massage while lying side by side. You can also sign up for a client card, after which you’ll be eligible for a discounted rate on all procedures. ■

A day at the salon Krislin Liiva talks about what sets Tiia Ilusalong apart from the rest. TEXT AS TOLD TO KRISTINA LUPP, PHOTOS ANDREI CHERTKOV

I finished my training at CIDESCO,

which was Estonia’s first private cosmetics school and have now been working as a beautician for four years. I love my work. At Tiia Ilusalong we offer many different treatments and procedures like facials, depilation, massage, pedicures, manicures, and body care. I also perform all of these procedures. Our salon differs from the rest, as we offer curative pedicures and body sugaring, which are the most popular procedures in summertime. A curative pedicure is different from a regular pedicure because it helps fix various foot problems like ingrown nails, nail and foot fungus, corns, warts, heel cracks, etc. Nail fungus is a very common

problem these days and often people don’t realise they have fungus before the problem has taken over the entire nail. The

faster you seek help for the fungus, the easier it is to take control of. Here’s how we can help: first we file and clean the nail. Our salon has the unique Fox laser, which cures nail fungus. A treatment consists of four visits over two to two and half months. The laser heats up the nail to the point where it kills the fungus. You can help the healing process at home by reducing your sugar and white flour intake, as these foods feed the fungus. Hygiene is also important. You should disinfect your feet and shoes. If you visit a spa or a public pool, then you should certainly wear sandals. You can also use a curative polish during this time. Foot fungus is much easier to treat. You can use anti-fungal creams on your feet, make sure you dry your feet properly, change your towels often and wash all socks and sheets in at least 60C water.

Depilation is also popular in sum-

mer and at Tiia Ilusalong we use Alexandria body sugar, which is easy on the skin. It is one of the world’s cleanest and most allergen-free depilation sugars. Our salon offers the sugar waxing ball method, which is very hygienic. We use clean gloves and apply the wax in the same direction as the hair grows. This helps prevent the hair from breaking, as well as ingrown hairs. Hair also grows back more slowly. Tiia Ilusalong differs from other nail care salons because they don’t cover up the problem, they fix it. The salon has been operating since 1997, and long running business and regular clients (both international and local) are proof of the quality service Tiia Ilusalong provides. ■

Don't cover up the problem, fix it.

Summer Gig Guide 2017 TEXT STUART GARLICK, PHOTO SILVER TÕNISSON

There are many reasons to be excit-

ed about the schedule of concerts and performances around Estonia this summer. That’s because the biggest local stars are all out on summer tours, along with a smattering of international names to make your calendar sing. Eurovision is still taken as seriously as ever by Estonia - and with good reason, because this year Koit Toome and Laura made up a duet dream team that might not have stunned the public in Kiev, but did pick up plaudits for their song, ‘Verona’, based around the Shakespeare play Romeo and Juliet. Now, Koit and Laura are touring the nation with their Verona tour, taking in Kuressaare, Palmse Manor, Tartu, Viimsi, Kadriorg Park in Tallinn, and many other venues of all sizes, between 10 and 30 July.

Koit Toome is a busy man, because as well as his tour with Laura, the Estonian singing star is on his own solo tribute to 1970s and ‘80s rock icon Jaak Joala, Suveöö or Summer Nights. Beginning in June, Toome’s tour takes him to all four corners of Estonia, ending at Alatskivi Castle on 24 August. Should your Eurovision musical tastes be more retro, there’s another chance to see the ubiquitous Dave Benton, the Aruba native having settled in Estonia in the 1990s, forming a one-off partnership with the young Tanel Padar in 2001 that brought Estonia, and the world, ‘Everybody’, the song that won Eurovision, took the hearts of many, and encouraged us all to roll the carpet from the floor. Benton regularly hosts a Christmas show, but for those keen to get some summer entertainment with this national treasure, he’s on tour

with his Parimad Laulud (Favourite Songs) from 1-11 August. Sticking with the loose Eurovision theme, Lenna Kuurmaa was once part of Vanilla Ninja, the epochal Estonian girl band that still has the best-selling ice cream in Estonia as official merchandise and in spite of all members being Estonian, represented Switzerland at Eurovision. Lenna, having released ‘Slingshot’ for Eesti Laul 2017 (the Eurovision selection contest), is now gearing up for what we all hope will be a new album soon. Lenna, who has one of the sweetest voices in Estonian pop, is backed up by the supergroup Estonian Voices, featuring, among a cast that gives classic songs an a capella twist, the excellent jazz vocalist Kadri Voorand.

doing something brand new, in her case, the new album ‘Coffee for One’, which is a departure from her previous work, which was mostly in the smooth jazz category, into more pop-oriented territory, as evidenced by recent single ‘Procrastination Queen’. It’s a sign of the increased confidence Koikson feels in her craft having studied in London at the Tech Music School - and for visitors to Tartu for Muusikasuvi, on 3 August, there’s a chance to sample Koikson’s new sound. Jaan Tätte was described by author Justin Petrone as being “Estonia’s version of a Renaissance man,” and the folk legend with the booming bass voice is back on the road again, as he is every summer, this time with long-time collaborator Jaan Pehk, a big man with the voice of an angel. The two are a great team and tickets are sure to sell out, so book early to avoid

disappointment. They play various venues from 20 July to 3 August. Trad.Attack! are one of the most feted and critically-acclaimed bands in Estonia, and have been an international success story thanks to the three band members’ globetrotting philosophy, which has seen the folk-electro trio win friends and fans in China recently, among many territories. The band takes archive samples of folk chants and turns them into something mystic, dreamlike, but still danceable, quite a gift in itself, but they’ve also shown themselves not to be onetrick ponies with their new album ‘Kullakarva’ (Shimmer Gold), which is a musical step on from the easilymemorable power chords of their first album. Catch Trad.Attack! on 26 August, when they close their short Estonian tour in Treski. ■ All tickets for these concerts can be purchased on Piletilevi.

On selected nights, Sveta Baar comes to life with games night, pub quizzes, and live DJs.

Nightlife: Pop-Up Passions TEXT STUART GARLICK, PHOTOS SVETA BAAR, ANDREI CHERTKOV

T

he nightlife of Tallinn, for foreigners and tourists, can seem to be dominated by the big beasts that are the major nightclubs, and the Old Town bars we all know and love. But that’s not necessarily right. There are an increasing number of bars and clubs in pop-up and temporary venues, or in places converted from one purpose to another. If you look hard enough, nightlife can ALWAYS be interesting. Let’s take a look at the best in Tallinn. We’ve mentioned Speakeasy (Kopli 4), the little box-bar run by Põhjala Brewery, a few times in this article already, but it’s worth celebrating, because it’s back, at least for the summer, and possibly into the autumn depending on demand. The bar had closed except for private parties due to the profusion of construction work all around, but with Kalamaja once again an attractive place to stroll, it means Speakeasy again gets strong passing trade, and Põhjala a place for testing its newest brews. There have been plenty of good nights in Speakeasy, and though it seems like what it is - a basic prefab nightspot - there are

Speakeasy is open again!

myriad reasons for spending part of your night there. For starters, as mentioned, you get to try out the full range from Põhjala Brewery, everything from the smooth, considered Uus Maailm to the inky Öö, which will send you into the night with a bang. You’ll find a diverse mix of people there, from the hipsters of Kalamaja lore to day-trippers and couchsurfers looking for a new thrill. If you’re feeling peckish, no problem - just order a burger and kimchi fries through the hole

in the wall, and Burger Box, next door, will oblige. Kalamaja isn’t exactly the wild frontier it used to be, though. Now there are two major supermarkets competing for attention within 200 metres, and you even have to pay an admission fee to the Telliskivi Food Fair. What about if you want to experience the hipster side of Tallinn from before Kalamaja went gentrified? Take a walk further up the tram line, towards Kopli, once the home of feverish activity in the Soviet shipyards, and still the

home of a sizeable maritime workforce. On the edge of Kopli, before you start seeing the slightly scarylooking dive bars, there’s a real oasis of calm - Kopli Restaurant, formerly Kamahouse, which lies next door to the behemoth former Standard paper factory. On selected nights, the bar adjacent to Kopli Restaurant, Sveta Baar (Kopli 25), comes to life. There are games nights, a popular quiz night, live DJs, and the nicest barstaff in the whole of Tallinn - ask for Gerda! Sveta Baar makes the best

possible use of an unconventional space, in the L-shaped complex that houses Kopli Restaurant, through which you can walk to get to Sveta Baar. Although the two places are separate entities, they work superbly together, and you’ll feel perfectly at home as soon as you step into the reclaimed industrial building. Telliskivi continues to throw up surprises, even though it’s seven or eight years since cafes and bars began sprouting up there, an epoch in Tallinn time. Next to the disused railway line that runs up to the active part of Balti Jaam or Baltic Station, from which those shiny orange trains run every day, there’s a little bit of history. It’s called Peatus (Telliskivi 62), or stop, and in old railway cars that were once pulled by the engines that used to go to Moscow or Leningrad, you will now find chilled people celebrating to a fluid stream of music from a great DJ. It’s the perfect way to round off a night on the town. ■

The third annual Weekend Festival Baltic is already a much-antici-

pated event. On the first weekend in August, fans from Latvia, Lithuania and even Poland will flood Estonia’s summer capital. Many tickets were already sold in spring. Jyri Keikkinen from RL Concert recommends buying your tickets ahead of time, because Weekend Festival Baltic sells out every year. They are anticipating about 30,000 visitors this year. Part of the festival’s popularity is thanks to Pärnu itself. “Pärnu is fantastic at organising festivals, the atmosphere also adds to its popularity. You can get there from Helsinki, Tallinn, and Riga in a couple of hours”, he explains.

Weekend Festival Baltic anticipates about 30,000 visitors this year.

“ Weekend Festival has received a lot of praise from both visitors and performers”, Keikkinen adds. This year, you can look forward to some big names like The Chainsmokers, Armin Van Buuren, Alesso, Clean Bandit, Deadmau5 and Marin Garrix. “The selection of artists has also changed more from EDM to pop music. We always want to improve and keep up with the times”, explains Heikkinen. The festival also has many different food options, as well as many different programmes. ■

allinn’s port will be filled with stunning sailboats when The Tall Ships Races regatta makes a stop in town on its way to Turku. The most noteworthy of them all is the four-masted barque, the world’s largest traditional sailboat still in use, which is used as a training ship. From the water you can see mysterious flying ships and the Flying Phantom catamaran. The Maritime Days got its start 10 years ago when the city of Tallinn and the Port of Tallinn joined forces with the Maritime museum. The festival has become one of summer’s most interesting events. This year’s maritime days will take place over four days and divided over five ports between Pirita and Kakumäe. You can get to the sea from each one. The festival’s unoffical opening is at Pirita on 14 July, where they will have fireworks and the popular Regatt band. The main event areas are between A and D terminals at the Old Town guest harbour, Old City Marina, and Seaplane Harbour. On stage you will see top Estonian pop artists, young bands, the Pärnu City Orchestra, a street circus, and the St. Petersburg Jazz Orchestra. On Sunday, the nighttime song festival will take place when the first of the large ships begin to arrive.

Vikings and robots

Forest festival at the beach At Noblessner, a little bit west of the Seaplane Harbour, is where you’ll find a new cultural centre in the making. The old port buildings are being refurbished and

new houses are being built by the water’s edge. Noblessner will open a private docking area on 15 July for one day only, where invited guests from the Intsikurmu festival in Põlva will come.

The Intsikurmu festival is known as a sort of travelling hipster forest festival. The beachside picnic starts at 12.00 and finishes at 1 am. Cyclists from the Tour d’ÖÖ will join in the evening. There is a different pro-

The newest part of the Maritime Days is the innovation area at Vanasadam, where boat technology and underwater archeology will be on display. Those who wish can build a robot in the workshop or learn about simulators and swim in virtual reality. Haven port is open at Kakumäe and will be taking part in the festivities for the first time this year with a sporty weekend. You can play beach football and volleyball, different Speed Races, and watch catamaran demonstrations. Children have their own activities with boat trips and a pop up sailing school by Meresõber. A naval show will be organised at Kakumäe, where helicopters, lifeboats and the Estonian Navy will take part. Most of the events are free, except for ship and helicopter rides. ■

Some places have elevators, like Horisont Restaurant & Bar, located on the top floor of the Swissotel (Tornimäe 3, Tallinn b2) and the rooftop terrace at Radisson Blu Sky Hotel (Rävala pst 3, Tallinn b2). A little bit further along the coast towards Viimsi, you can stop in NOA (Ranna tee 3, Tallinn), one of the city’s top restaurants, for a beautiful view across the bay.

Tallinn’s Town Hall is the only intact Gothic town hall in Northern Europe. In July and August it’s open as a museum and from June to August, climb the 64-metre tower for some spectacular views of Tallinn, right in the heart of the Old Town.

A fascinating museum about Soviet history in Estonia is located on the 23rd floor of the Sokos Hotel Viru. 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.

The old sellers have now returned to new rooms. The fish and meat halls have “lost” their familiar smell. The messy workstations have disappeared. All that is in the past. The renovations brought new clean rooms for what is now Estonia’s most modern market hall. Outside, there are market stalls where you can buy vegetables and berries. There are lots of other additions to the market.

more than a trade. Homeart, at Telliskivi in Tallinn is a good example of this. “We know our customer’s lifestyle,” describes Kairit Potisepp, owner of Homeart, which also houses a cafe within its shop, something that adds to the unique cosy atmosphere in the store.

The style in Homeart is carefully thought out. Potisepp, who lived and worked in Sweden longed for Scandinavian style. Most of the products from Homeart are from the west side of the bay. You won’t find much plastic here. The shelves are stocked with lots of wood, glass and the now, very trendy concrete. Potisepp wanted to create a movement that would allow for

interior decoration on a decent budget. “Our prices are not the lowest, but we're certainly not exclusive either. We want to show that even with small amounts of money you can create a nice and comfortable interior”. ■

Tallinn’s Museum of Occupations will open the Pagari cellars to the public in mid-July. “We want to show everyone how totalitarian systems work”, explains Sander Jürisson, the exhibition’s manager from the Museum of Occupations.

Together with Tallinn’s Patarei Prison, Pagari Street was where the horror began. Some went straight to prison from Pagari, which Jürisson referred to as a sanatorium. It goes to show the great fear people felt towards Pagari Street, as Patarei prison was no vacation either. Six cells and one 4 m2 Karzer room, remind us of a time that in fact, was not that long ago. ■

Location KGB Prison Cells, Pagari 1 (entrance from Pikk and Pagari intersection), Tallinn Old Town f2. The cellars will be opened to the public by the end of July 2017.

23 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: soiduplaan.tallinn.ee/#tallinna-linn/map/en
