Parks & Nature
This vast park surrounding Kadriorg Palace is without a doubt the best place in town for relaxed strolling, pigeon feeding and life pondering. It was set up in 1718 as part of the palace estate, but has always been open to the public. In spring and summer visitors can see beautiful, manicured gardens and flowerbeds here, but most of the park has retained the look of the natural landscape, with meadows and forest groves. The place where I spend my weekends.

Here you can find some of the supermarkets in the neighbourhood and some stores for souvenirs and local design.
Good selection of interesting beers ;) If you need any essentials like milk, eggs or for example ice cream, then it is good for a quick visit. Located in the house next door.

This is probably the only souvenir shop in Tallinn that locals actually visit. You won’t find any Russian matryoshka dolls or Lithuanian amber here (there is no amber in Estonia)!

A secret French cafeteria with supersweet cakes and great coffee. In a really nice courtyard, the courtyard itself is worth to check out. A bit pricier than your average local cafe Pierre makes you feel like you're in 1920s Paris.

A legendary market. Only a few antique shops on the top floor remind us of the former Balti Jaam market now, as it went through a massive remake and now hosts vendors from farm food and fresh produce to ethnic specialty stores. You'll find anything from Italian mozzarella to Georgian wines and everything in between.

The Soviets built this thing for the Olympic regatta of 1980 set to take place in Tallinn. The roof of the building is a popular place among the local youth for enjoying the sunset. So grab a bottle, hide it well and head out to explore the concrete jungle on the seaside.
