Making the Most of Tallinn, Estonia

Making the Most of Tallinn, Estonia


GETTING THERE

You will be docked at a commercial port, which is an approximate 15-20 minute walk on level ground into the Old Town. Taxis and shuttles are plentiful, and there is also a hop-on, hop-off bus kiosk outside the port gates. Taxis, at the time of this writing, are approximately 6 from the port to the center of town. However, note that prices are not uniform and drivers can set their own rates. It is best to ask the price beforehand. Estonia became part of European Union in 2007; therefore no visa is required for entry. Currency is the Euro (only recently adopted, in 2011), although some stores will accept U.S. dollars if new and unmarked. Most larger restaurants and shops will also accept major credit cards.

GETTING AROUND

Unless mobility is a concern, Tallinn is a city easily navigated by foot. From the cruise terminal, it’s an easy 15–20 minute walk to the center of town. If you prefer to save your walking for the city, taxis are available at the port, as well as hop-on, hop-off buses. Taxi stands are located next to the passenger terminal buildings and can also be ordered by phone or hailed in the street. Be suspicious if a driver hails you in the terminal, as this is not a common practice in Estonia. Before entering the taxi, it’s best to understand the approximate cost of the trip, as rates are not regulated in Estonia. A yellow price list should be posted on the right side rear door. Public transportation on buses, trolleys and tram lines is also available for 2 for a single journey (exact change). Smart cards and e-tickets can be purchased for multiple trips, although most cruise visitors have limited time available. For those touring on their own, there is also a Tallinn Card providing free public transportation along with entry to over 40 museums and major sights. These are available at the Tallinn Information Center, and can also be purchased online before your arrival at http://www.tourism.tallinn.ee/en, where you’ll also find directions to the information center. Lastly, bicycle rental and tours are also available at locations throughout the city.

SAFETY

Tallinn is a busy tourist attraction with visitors from all over the world. With diversity also comes diversity of character, so it’s always best to watch your purse or wallet in public places as you would in any city. Wear comfortable walking shoes, as many streets are hilly and paved with cobblestones, and can become slippery when wet.
