Those poor cruise tourists really have to walk quite a long way before getting to anywhere remotely nice looking. This isn't a way to introduce your city to the world.

+1.

One of the most depressing things about Tallinn. The first and the last view of Tallinn will be the fugly decaying Linnahall and empty plots with its puddles, old bottles and plastic bags laying around.

Very clever move from them.

Wow! I start a thread then go somewhere else and forget about it, I'm like a squirrel with acorns.


Glad to see all the developments! Has the Baltic frozen over after this cold spell?

nope, its -26 C two days back, today -22 C degrees and Tallinn bay f. example looks wonderful - every day "hot" steam raises from sea - view is like in heaven (), but nothing frozen. Only my dog dislike the cold, but loves snow.

Pretty cool video of Port of Tallinn in 1935: Tallinna sadama ajalugu

Worth watching,as it shows how today's Passenger harbour (which at that time was cargo port) was developed.

Veeteede amet korraldas väikese konkursi ka Runö kujunduse leidmiseks EKAs. Tundub et minu oma oli liiga lihtne võrreldes sellega....

The Old Town is 5 min walk from Harbour. City Center is 7 min walk - but you can always walk 1 min to bus no 2 stop and wait half on hour or 5 min to tram stop and wait 10-15 ... 20 min (for example late night)

Nevertheless, Tallinn Airport waits for you. Its cozy little Airport with lots of air, no crazy waiting. Its designed for humans - its fast, nothing like a UK or US airports...

YAY! btw a venezuelan company called CONFERRY (now owned by the state ) bought the tallink autoexpress 2 some years ago.. baaad idea, it failed a couple of times

I have a question for you estonians. If theres not tax to pay inside the ships how that benefit the state? Is it there at least port tax when buying the boarding ticket?

two pics more of Runö:



Btw Nordmusican - If you come from Helsinki - you can choose the time for crossing:

- 1,5 hours to Linnahall near Kalasadam
- finnish cheap line Viking with 3,5 hours to A terminal
- estonian a bit expensive line Tallink with 3 up to 3,5 hours to to D terminal

This is harbour of Tallinn, place where you arrive.
