Tallinn by night

Tallinn by night

See a different side of the Old Town with Tallinn Traveller Tours.

 

On a cold October night I met Heli (a guide with TTT) for the Tallinn Ghost Tour. If you’ve seen the major sights of the Old Town during the day, here is your chance to explore the narrow streets at night.

The Ghost Tour lasts one and a half to two hours (depending on the temperature outside). Your guide will tell you curious tales and legends about some of the houses and statues you might not notice on during the day. For example, do you know that Tallinn had its very own mummy; or have you seen the statue peering from the roof of the Russian Embassy over Pikk Street?

Heli has been giving tours of Tallinn since 2009. The Ghost Tour is interesting because it gives a glimpse of places in the Old Town that you wouldn’t normally look at. “I don’t like to list off too many dates. You won’t remember the dates, but you will remember interesting stories,” Heli told me while on our tour.

To book your tour with TTT visit: www.traveller.ee.Tallinn Traveller Tours also does day trips outside of the city. If you have a bit of time to spare and have already seen the sights of Tallinn, why not take a day trip to picturesque Lahemaa National Park, or head to Paldiski to find Soviet relics and admire stunning coastal landscapes? You won’t be disappointed!
