Shopping Spotlight: Arsenal

Shopping Spotlight: Arsenal

A tour of Tallinn's newest shopping centre.

 

Located in the northern part of the city in the quickly developing suburb of Kopli, Arsenal is not named after the English football team, but the Estonian-era weapons factory it used to house. The red brick building is a good example of tsarist-era architecture, built in 1917, just before Estonia gained its independance.

Today, the building has been beautifully restored and repurposed as a shopping centre filled with over 30 shops and ten different cafés and restaurants. Browse through the Uuskasutuskeskus, a secondhand shop, where you’ll find some unique items, especially among the housewares. The shopping centre houses quite a few clothing, shoe and accessory stores, as well as a few organic/health food shops. The cheese shop Juustukuningad has also opened another location at Arsenal, as did the grocery chain Selver. For a full list of shops visit: www.arsenalkeskus.ee
